DeckSeal’s Top Tips: Prepping Your Garden for Christmas Festivities

Oct 26, 2023 | Blog, Deck Ideas, Helpful Tips, News

Christmas is not just about the sparkling lights and decked-out interiors; it’s also a time when our gardens and outdoor spaces become the prime spots for merry gatherings. We have compiled a list of seven ideas to rejuvenate your garden, ensuring it looks impeccable for the upcoming Christmas festivities.

Pruning Paradise: 

A good trim goes a long way. Pruning and trimming your trees and hedges will not only enhance their shape but also rid them of untidy foliage.


The Magic of Mulching:

Never underestimate the power of a good re-mulch. Whether you’re re-mulching garden beds, spreading new gravel toppings, or adding fresh pebbles to pathways and seating areas, these minor tweaks can significantly elevate the overall look of your garden.

Love Your Lawn:

If certain patches of your lawn seem weary, show them some tender love. Fertilise them generously, top dress with soil, and sprinkle some fresh lawn seed. You’ll be surprised at the transformation this simple act can bring.

Plant a Spring Surprise:

Spring beckons growth. If your garden looks a tad dreary, introduce new plants. They will not only infuse life but will also add a splash of colour, making the area vibrant and welcoming for your Christmas guests.

Power of Pot Plants:

Pot plants are versatile and easy to manoeuvre. Place them strategically – maybe by your front door, on your deck, or under a pergola. Their charm can uplift any space, making it look well thought out and decorated.

DeckSeal’s Special: The Oil Touch:

DeckSeal’s mantra is simple: A refreshed deck is a game-changer. If your deck, fence, or pergola appears faded, a fresh coat of oil can work wonders. This small act can drastically change the look, making it seem as good as new!

Clean Hard Surfaces:

Paving, bricks, and concrete, over time, gather dirt, diminishing their original beauty. Consider cleaning products or, better yet, consult a professional. A clean pathway or driveway can drastically elevate the overall appeal of your outdoor space.

At DeckSeal, we believe that the spirit of Christmas lies in the joy of gatherings, laughter echoing across the garden, and memories made in well-maintained outdoor spaces. We hope these tips inspire you to roll up your sleeves and get your garden gleaming for the summer festivities. Here’s to a beautiful, DeckSeal-approved outdoor space this Christmas!
