We may still have a couple of months until the winter chill well and truly settles in but autumn is the perfect time to start preparing your garden for the changing seasons. At H & G Promotions we know how important it is to keep your garden looking nice all year round. Just because the summer is over and your garden seems to be wilting a bit, make the most of the milder weather and start preparing for the harsh winter months now.Remove greenhouse shading and clean inside
With the shortening days, sunlight becomes even more valuable to your plants. Removing the shade paint in your greenhouse will make sure your plants get the necessary amount of sunlight to continue to grow. If you need help cleaning the outside of your greenhouse, get in touch today. We can offer window cleaning services or supply equipment for DIY cleaning. Don’t forget to give the inside of your greenhouse a blitz too, removing any plant debris, washing old pots and disinfecting the glass.
Weed and trim the edges and bushes
Key an eye on weeds you may have already treated and make sure they don’t continue to spread. Rejuvenate lawns with an autumn feeding and gather up any fallen leaves or debris for the compost bin. Hedges need to be pruned for the last time before the winter months to prevent decay from damp. Don’t cut shrubs and bushes too much although this varies according to type. We recommend you check with local garden centres or plant labels for more information.
Take cuttings and plant bulbs
Many people don’t realise that bulbs can be planted in autumn but it is in fact a good time for planting. The soil tends to have more moisture because of the regular showers and the ground is still warm. Bulbs planted in autumn germinate from the soil at the right time in spring to reveal beautiful flowers. Take cuttings from herbs and keep in small containers of potting mix.
Protect your ponds with nets
Save yourself the trouble of cleaning out your pond by spreading and pinning a fine meshed net across the pond. This way any fallen leaves will not be able to decompose in the water which could make it dirty and block the filters on the pumps. Regularly remove any leaves caught on the net to the compost bin.
Clear out last year’s compost bin
After your autumn garden tidying you will no doubt have generated a lot of compost. Clear out last year’s supply and use it around the garden to make room for the new waste. Avoid overflowing your compost with one particular thing; a mixture makes for better compost.
If you need help cleaning your windows this autumn, here at H & G Promotions in Kidderminster we lead the way in conservatory and window washing equipment for all kinds of applications. Don’t hesitate to contact us and find out more about our services.

Don’t let your garden shed entice burglars into your backyard. Secure your precious garden tools with these six tips.
Location – Firstly, consider where your shed is placed in your back garden. Your first instinct will be to place it where it’s most practical, but consider security implications of that placement. Is it easily seen from the front of the house? Is it hidden away where a burglar could have a go at it out of sight?
Find the sweet spot where you can see the shed from your property, but it can’t be seen from the street out front. A burglar won’t want to have a go if they suspect someone can see them.
Windows – If you use your garden shed for things other than storing your garden equipment, like woodwork, then you’ll need good lighting. The best way to do that is to have big windows installed to let natural light stream in.
You must be careful though, not to turn your shed into a shop window for thieves. When you’ve finished cover your windows with cardboard or bin bags, so that inquisitive, curious burglar can’t see what’s inside.
Hinges – The biggest weakness of any shed is of course the hinges. You install a padlock and then a burglar comes along, simply removes the hinges and takes the door off. Security foiled.
Look for non-returnable screws on your hinges, and keep an eye out for specially designed security hinges.
Access – If a burglar can take a stroll down the side of your house and into your backyard, they will. Don’t make access to your garden easy for them. Throw up a fence or add some prickly hedges to your yard. Make it an unappealing prospect for a burglar to try and get into.
Alarms – Installing an alarm on the outside of your shed is the best deterrent. No burglar wants to try and break into an alarmed property.
Lock it up – Sounds obvious but many gardeners don’t bother locking their shed up correctly. Purchase a good, sturdy padlock or hasp and make sure you put it to use every time you leave the shed!

Wow how hot has it been lately? Like most of the country, we’ve been enjoying the best of the balmy weather at HG Promotions, we’ve topped up our tans and been tending our garden as best we can.
One area of concern during the hot weather is lawn care. Left to dry out, turf soon starts to show signs of wear and tear and that’s a genuine worry.
We’ve been thinking about this and thought we’d share some of our lawn care tips with you, this way your turf should look just as good as ours!
This is what we do...
Cut back on cutting grass - For starters, we’d recommend leaving the grass a little longer than you would normally during hot weather, resist the temptation and cut the grass less frequently. Yes, this is an alien concept, especially if you like to keep the blades as short as possible but leave it an inch or so longer this should prevent the turf turning a horrible brown or yellow colour.
Raise those blades – One way to ensure you don’t cut the lawn too short is to raise the height of the blades on your lawnmower. They’re easy to adjust and once you have lifted the height it’ll stop you from being too enthusiastic with your lawn care regime.
Water during the evening – There’s no need to water your lawn too frequently during the daytime, all that moisture will simply be evaporated by the blazing hot sun. Leave watering until the evening when it starts to get cooler, use a sprinkler (as long as there are no hose pipe bans in place) and make sure the water penetrates right into the turf.
Prick the lawn – A good tip to ensure the water is penetrating right down into the soil is to gently prick the turf with a garden fork. Ideally you should be aiming to saturate the soil at a depth of around 4 inches, go round the turf pricking it in various locations prior to watering and give it a good drink!
Keep off the grass! Lastly, steer clear of the lawn once you have watered it, don’t trample over the turf, let the water sink into the soil. As the sprinklers do their thing sit back and enjoy the delights of your garden, nothing beats the sight of a green and lush lawn on a summer’s evening.
Enjoy the rest of the sunny weather folks and don’t forget to slap on the sun lotion!

Anyone undertaking home renovations should have the right equipment to get the job done. Not only is the right equipment essential for completing the work efficiently but, necessary for safety. Any home improvements that are to be made in elevated spaces must be completed with secure elevated platforms. Platform ladders are one of the surest ways to reach difficult and elevated positions.
When labouring at an elevated height, balance is essential. Not only will you need to keep any home improvement essentials like plaster and paint cans in an easy to reach position but, you need to be safe and secure when perched atop the ladder. For this reason platform ladders are essential.
Over the last few years there has been an exponential growth and demand for the domestic use of platform ladders. Traditionally employed solely for use in a commercial and construction setting, these ladders have become a firm favourite for domestic use.
The Benefits of Platform Ladders
The primary benefit of platform ladders is that are reliable, durable and above all else stable. They are more comfortable than a standard ladder, and feature a large platform ledge to stand. Many traditional ladders do not feature such a wide space. This may result in accidents.
The additional bonus if enjoyed a larger platform ledge is that this space allows you the opportunity to store those essentials for the job in hand. From paint cans and brushes to scrapers and a wealth of different tools, the space afforded by platform ladders is far superior to traditional ladders.
Platform ladders make any jobs all the more simple. This cannot be argued, however the safety offered by such ladders is another primary selling point. Their safety allows you to complete all work more proficiently as you needn’t be concerned with falling from the height. Platform ladders are designed with safety in mind. The steps, platform and general environment are all designed with safety in mind.
Platform ladders additionally feature a folding mechanism. This allows the ladders to be easily folded and stored in a compact space. They are generally reasonably lightweight and can be moved from one position to another with ease – yet another benefit and reason to use platform ladders.
Whether choosing to employ platform ladders outdoors or indoors you can rest-assured that they offer you superlative elevation solutions. Don’t opt for traditional ladders – platform ladders are a must.
