Check for Wind Damage

Wind damage? Time to check the garden

Now that we’ve seen the back of Storm Doris, it’s a good time to get out into the garden and check for wind damage. Secure climbers if necessary and if any newly planted trees have moved then re-plant and stake them.

Prune and support

Look up into tree canopies and check for any wind damaged branches that may have snapped but not fallen. Remove them from their base with a clean less jagged cut.

If you are planting new fruit trees or bushes we would suggest you cane them as soon as possible.

Finally we recommend you give your lawn a quick inspection, many small branches may have blown onto your lawn and it will soon be time to give grass its first cut of the year and the last thing you will want to do is make your mowers blades blunt or brake.
