How to spruce up your garden for Spring

Dare we say Spring is just about here and we can look forward to warmer days, longer nights and the flowers starting to bloom again. So, if you’re a keen gardener now is the time to start thinking about your garden for this year.

How to spruce up your garden for Spring

Commence operation clean-up

When the sunshine does appear, the last thing you want to do is spend those valuable BBQ hours cleaning up your garden! Instead, use this time to do all the weeding, sweep up the debris and repaint or treat any weather-beaten furniture to have your garden looking good as new.

Add a water feature

Not only do water features make a great focal point, they’re a great way to make your garden wildlife-friendly. However, if you’re put off by the ideas of having to maintain one, simply invest in a submersible dirty water pump which reduces the need for constant cleaning.

Jazz up your furnishings

Not every bit of colour has to be added to your garden by the plants, and adding some furniture and decorations can really help give your garden a lift. Just remember to store your cushions indoors during those unavoidable April showers!

Sort your veg

There’s nothing better than home-grown vegetables, and early Spring is the best time of year to get these planted ready for your very own Summer salads.

Mix and match your greenery

Adding a variety of different plants and shrubbery can really help your garden spring to life, and make it a colourful place to be.

 

Tend to your lawn

As well as regular once-overs with your lawnmower you can heal your lawn from any damage from the harsh Winter weather by re-seeding your grass to get your lawn back to its former glory.

Mulch, mulch, baby

We can’t stress enough just how great mulch is for your garden, even if you already do this you will still need to top it up. After you have removed all the unsightly weeds from your flowerbeds, spread your mulch around the soil to keep those pesky weeds away for good.

Don’t ignore your older plants

Finally, whilst it might be tempting to focus on the new additions to your garden, you shouldn’t forget the plants and shrubbery you already have. A good pruning can prepare a plant for its spring growth and make it look as good as new again!

Are you a keen gardener? We hope our tips on how to spruce up your garden will help you!
