While we’re all stuck in self-isolation, it’s important from a mental health perspective to keep ourselves active and our brains well-stimulated.
With this in mind, if you have a garden available at home, we’ve compiled a short list of things you could do during the lockdown to keep you and your family entertained.
From creative tasks like painting the shed to must-do recommendations like checking your oil tank, let’s get started.
1 – Paint The Shed/Fence.
If your shed or fence is looking a bit worse for wear, tatty and weather beaten, why not think about giving it a little tidy up?
A quick lick of paint can instantly revive a shed or fence back to its former glory. Plus, it can help keep it more secure and durable over the long run too, especially when using paint that features weatherproof protection.
2 – Check Your Oil Tank.
If, like most people, you keep your oil tank in the garden, it’s important to ensure it remains suitably protected from the elements.
Therefore, you should think about inspecting it on a regular basis, in order to trim back any overhanging branches, check its level of oil and identify any potential signs of a leak.
Plus, with the summer just around the corner, you won’t be using your oil as much. To ensure it remains as effective and as efficient during winter again though, you’ll need to keep it as full as possible to prevent condensation from building up.
3 – Mow The Lawn.
Keeping your lawn freshly trimmed is imperative to good garden health, and it’ll also give you something to do.
While you may not be able to invite friends and family over for that summer BBQ just yet, maintaining your lawn and ensuring it stays in good health throughout lockdown is vital.
After all, the last thing you want when you’re free to see your loved ones again is to have to catch up on all the tasks you should have done while self-isolating. Now is the time to do them.
