Getting Ready for Fall with Gilmour

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Gilmour for IZEA. All opinions are 100% mine.

Fall is around the corner. I have already been seeing back to school displays and kids doing fall sports fundraisers. That can only mean one thing: It is almost time to get your garden cleaned up for fall. I want to share a couple of simple fall clean up ideas to help keep your home’s curb appeal looking great. We use the Gilmour brand of gardening hoses and equipment. Make sure to check out Gilmour on Facebook

Keep your sidewalks, driveway, and equipment clean.

Besides normal washing and gardening, each fall I give my equipment and sidewalks a thorough cleaning. Thanks to the Gilmour metal power jet wand, this job gets done quickly. I have a commercial mower I use for serious grass cutting. It is normal for it to just get a little dirty. I use the Gilmour Metal Power Jet Wand to knock of any excess debris.

Keep your Plants Healthy

Another tip for the fall is to clean out your plants that have already flowered and dried out. While many plants go right up until frost, some finish early and turn brown. Go ahead and clean these up in late summer and fall. Also, make sure your garden gets plenty of water. At least in Minnesota, the later the summer gets, the dryer the weather. Make sure you are using one of the Gilmour watering sprayers to keep your garden healthy. The Gilmour sprayers are a very high-end sprayer. Mine is leak free, sprays evenly, and has many spraying options for soaking my plants.

Make sure Gardening is Stays Fun

Besides pulling a lot of produce or looking at beautiful flowers and landscaping, gardening should be fun. I have found that when gardens are easy to take care of, I enjoy them a lot more. One way it to use high quality products. Make sure to make the foundation to  your gardening system the Gilmour Flexogen hose. It is the most durable hose in its class. It’s 8-layer, built in the USA construction beats the competitors on all main strength indicatiors as proven by burst, abrasion and twist tests. That means this hose is tough. But it is also lightweight making watering your garden very easy. The light weight is from the Flexogen hose’s oxygen-infused foam. gilberts flexogen hoseIMG_6700web

You can see for yourself the high quality products that Gilmour provides. I garden nearly every day and I have fallen in love with this brand.
