Spring Is On It's Way! Time to Think About The Garden

Spring Is On It's Way! Time to Think About The Garden

When it’s cold and miserable outside the last thing you want to do is spend any time in your garden. So those outdoor spaces of ours tend to get neglected. But spring is definitely on it’s way.

A time for warmer weather and being outside more. So it’s only natural to think about your outside space and get it ready for those days utilising it. The garden really is an extension from your home. So here are a couple of ways you can get your garden ready for the warmer months ahead.

Tidy up the flower beds

It’s time to clear those leaves and sticks from the winter months and create some fresh new bedding for flowers. Bright flowers can look attractive in the spring and summer months. Pruning bushes and wedding flower beds can also make a huge difference to your outside space. By just neatening up the flower beds and tidying debris away, you are well on your way to creating a lovely garden space.

Invest in new furniture, fencing and gate.

During the winter months your fencing, garden furniture and gates can feel the true brunt of the cold and icy weather. Without being treated this could cause them to become damaged. Of course, if they can be saved, you could take the opportunity to treat all the woodwork. Creosoting the fences and furniture can give them a new lease of life. However, if things need replacing, then you could buy garden gates online. This allows you to do some necessary research and provides a time-saving solution.

Also, at this time of year, not many people will be thinking about buying garden furniture or things for the garden in general. So use it as an opportunity to get some bargains.

Look after your lawn or patio areas.

As the furniture will have battled with the harsh weather so will your lawn and patio. As the weather is brightening up, you could use the time wisely to cut your lawn, trim the edges and give it a much-needed feed or treatment.

The same applies to your patio. Giving all the areas and your walls a good steam clean will brighten them up and get rid of any grubby mud or debris that’s been hanging around.

Hydrate your garden

Spring also welcomes rain showers, but we can’t rely on those to keep your lawn maintained and allow your flower beds to thrive. It’s recommended to set up a watering system or just head out yourself in an evening with a watering can. Hydrating your garden will help the lawn to grow and those planted flowers to bloom.

Create a composting area.

Now that you are getting your garden organised you could utilise the time efficiently by creating a compost area. This will provide much-needed nutrients for your flower beds. Allowing those bulbs and seeds you've planted to thrive in the warmer months ahead.

Now that you have started to tackle all of these things your garden will soon be ready for spring and summer. Enjoy your garden this year with your friends and family.
