Spring Clean Your Cabin and Garden

Of course, this active charitable clean can coincide with your own spring cleaning. We have a full detailed blog post you can read hear about Log Cabin Maintenance.

As Spring approaches, here are some things to look out for with your Log Cabin:

  • The weather starts getting warmer, meaning logs may warp and expand.
  • You should also check the base levels of your Log Cabin around this time.
  • On the other end, the wet Winter may form moss on the roof. Remove the moss to help heat your cabin.
  • If you haven’t already, make sure your guttering is cleared out too.

On top of this, these are some good tips for Spring cleaning your surrounding garden:

  • Pesky weeds need digging up to help keep your garden healthy.
  • Pruning large shrubs, encouraging growth over the warmer months.
  • Give your lawn a much needed mow (make sure you do this on dry days).
  • Fresh compost where needed, especially top containers.

You’d be surprised with the extra space your cabin can give you for both your house and garden. Many of our log cabins also make for excellent, sturdy garden sheds.

Sustainable Cleaning

When you think of cleaning, you probably think of a mountain of chemicals and harmful products that need to be used in order to get the best results. Nowadays though, that could not be further from the truth, as there are many natural methods to cleaning that are more sustainable and less harmful to the environment.

Did you know:

  • You can utilise concentrated refills of cleaning products using a glass bottle instead of buying a new plastic bottle full each time.
  • You can buy more and more natural cleaning tools made of Bamboo, the fastest growing plant on the planet, meaning it easy to sustain.
  • Several natural cleaning products are easy to obtain, such as vinegar, baking soda and lemon.
