Many people only pay attention to the plants and flowers when they tend their garden. However, there are many more elements that contribute to a pleasant outdoor atmosphere. This may be self-evident, but as these elements in the garden are generally the least susceptible to change, we tend to overlook them. January is a quiet month for gardeners, so this is the perfect moment to devote attention to these aspects, as some objects may be in need of maintenance or repair. A mild winter day is ideal for light chores. This also provides an opportunity to enjoy the crisp outdoor air.
