PLAN IT OUTDOOR REFRESH AUTUMN RESET TAKE YOUR CUE FROM COOLER WEATHER AND TICK OFF SEASONAL JOBS IN AND AROUND THE GARDEN Words KYLIE JACKES he potential of autumn tones is a great reason to roll up the sleeves and give the garden a little ☐ attention. From lawn maintenance to mulching tips and plant care, here are some simple jobs to renew and improve your outdoors. Tidy beds Reinvigorate garden beds with a trim, thinning out and plumping up where needed. Once summer annuals start to die back, horticulturist and sustainability specialist Adam Woodhams (youtube.com/@Adam HWoodhams) recommends letting nature take its course. "Rather than resuscitate true annuals, pull them out, add them to compost and tidy up perennials whose foliage dies back in the cool seasons," he says. Allocate space for new varieties you want to grow and thin out clumping plants. "At this time of year, you can divide the old-fashioned but reliable shasta daisy, keeping the young, vigorous plants from the outside of the clump." Create an edge Plants and grass grow and spread over summer, so assert border control with an electric lawn edger and add a sleek finish like interlocking garden edging. As well as creating neat, well-shaped garden beds, edging will help keep mulch in place and create a barrier against running grass varieties. Banish weeds The best defence against weeds in lawns is to tackle them before they've set seed and spread. Horticulturist Angie Thomas at Yates advises using a hose-on selective herbicide to control common broad-leaf weeds like bindii and clover. "In garden beds, try spot-spraying with a weedkiller," she says. "Once weeds are controlled, put down a bark chip or pea straw mulch to help reduce their growth." ► Radicchio Kohlrabi PLANT UP Lettuces Set aside garden space where you can reap the benefits of growing your own seasonal food, mixed with a splash of colour. Angie recommends planting vegies like broccoli, onions, garlic, cauliflower, leeks, Asian greens and peas. "To brighten up beds during autumn and winter, grow flowers like pansies, calendula, violas and dianthus," she says. bunnings.com.au | bunnings | ℗ bunnings I bunnings | bunningswarehouseaustralia 41 Photography Gap Photos/Robert Mabic.
