The weather might not be all that warm at the moment, but in just a few short months, that will all change. The fact is that summer is coming around quickly, which means that all too soon it will be sunbathing weather. Bearing that in mind, if your garden has ended up in somewhat of a messy state thanks to the winter weather and a lack of care, then you might want to start focusing on your garden’s care now, so that come summer it is a nice place to spend time in.
If you haven’t got a green thumb, don’t panic – below are some simple ideas for preparing your garden for summer. Take note of these tips and ideas, and come summer you will have a beautiful garden to relax and spend time in.
Replant your tubs
If you have pots around your garden, in addition to planted up boarders, you may have noticed that most of the plants in your tubs have gone brown and dry. Some of these have died during the cold weather, but others of these may reflower. It’s just a case of knowing which will regrow and which need replacing. The best thing to do is go online and research the flowers that you have planted in your garden so that you know what will and what won’t need replacing. Daffodils are a great flower to plan up now, as it means that come spring and early summer your garden will have lots of colour.
Give your grass some love
Have you left your grass to grow out of control? If over the winter months your grass has got into a mess, now is the time to get back on top of it. The first step is to use a strimmer to reduce the length; then once it’s short enough, you can use a lawn mower to trim down the grass further. If any areas have gold bald and require reseeding, now is the ideal time to put some grass seed down. To ensure that your grass seed and the rest of your garden gets plenty of water, it could be worth investing in an Easy Garden Irrigation tool. That way, you don’t have to worry about keeping your plants watered as this will be taken care of automatically.
Invest in furniture
This time of year, before summer actually starts, is when garden furniture and accessories come cheap. So if your garden is in need of some replacement furniture or accessories such as outdoor candles or fairy lights, now is the time to buy them. If you are stuck for ideas about how you can beautify your garden, Pinterest has some incredible suggestions that it could be worth taking note of.
There you have it, a few useful tips to help you start preparing your garden for the onset of summer, ensuring that it is a nice, relaxing space. You want your garden to be somewhere that it’s nice to spend time in, which is why it’s worth putting some effort into creating a space that you actually want to be in.
