Garden Cleaning Advice

When should I clean my garden? It’s a question we’ve all asked ourselves as we stand outside, hands on hips, surveying the scene. Is that pile of leaves big enough to need clearing yet? Is my decking too dirty? Does the amount of energy required to rectify this situation outweigh my ability to ignore it?

If the balance has finally tipped in the direction of needing to clean, then these pages are for you. We’ve put together a series of gardening cleaning guides to help restore your outdoor haven to its former glory.

Obviously, some jobs don’t need guides. Picking weeds, clearing away miscellaneous debris, tidying away the kids’ toys, and so on. But with some of the more involved jobs – things like cleaning moss and algae from a patio, for example – it’s always good to have a bit of a helping hand.

These guides are designed to help you solve common garden problems quickly and efficiently. With some jobs, the equipment involved can be fairly pricey, so you want to be sure first time that you’re getting the right tool for the task at hand. Finding the best pressure washer or the best decking cleaner products is a fine example of this, and we’ve scoured the market to bring you the very best recommendations.

So if you’ve decided it’s time for a spring clean, check out our informational guides and product buying guides for cleaning your garden. Skip the time spent trawling reviews and product pages, and choose something with the Horticulture Magazine seal of approval.
