First Day Of Autumn

Today 22nd September is the first day of Autumn.  Summer is officially over.  Although from today we will notice that the days get shorter and the nights start to get longer the clocks don’t go back for another month.

The weather will start to cool down (not that its been hot) and the leaves start to fall from the trees.

Now is the time to make sure your gutters are cleaned out regularly so you don’t get  problems with a build up of leaves.

Now is the time to finish of all those little outdoor jobs that you’ve been putting off all summer.

And don’t forget to clean your paths and drive way.  Falling leaves, dull wet days all make your paved areas slippy.

Here at Greengates well stock Sika Brick & Patio Cleaner which is a general acid based cleaning solution for brickwork, concrete and paving.
