Be Ready For Autumn With These 5 Handy Hints From YTC

As Summer ends and Autumn begins, it is natural to not spend as much time outside in the garden.

Take a look at our 5 top tips for keeping your Autumn garden looking and feeling great, and never let the weather stop you from enjoying your time outside.

1. Get Crafting 

Autumn is an ideal time to decorate your garden by embracing pastel colours and getting crafty.

Why not create an Autumnal wind chime? They’re great fun and easy to make for all the family. Tie some twigs together in a cross with some of our Green Jute Twine, before tying more bits of twine to the twigs and hanging them down. 

Then it’s time to use your imagination. Tie what you want to the twine, from conkers and acorns, to cool, bright painted stones and wood slices. Always fun to make and great fun to watch, these wind chimes are a real crowd pleaser.

For something a little different, why not build an Autumn wreath for your garden?

Hang from a tree or attach to a fence and make your Autumn garden feel fun and fresh.
