Now that the cooler weather is coming to an end, we can look forward to springtime rearing its beautiful head. This is the perfect time to get back into the garden to clear up any mess that winter has left behind and begin preparing for the summer. So, here are some spring gardening tips that will help you neaten up your garden and make your life easier once summer finally arrives.
5 Spring Gardening Tips To Refresh and Revive Your Garden
1. Pull out weeds
If there’s one thing for sure, it’s that weeds will have made their way into your garden over the winter because it’s the perfect time to grow. Not only that, but you’re less likely to be spending time in your garden to pull them up. Wrap up warm and head outside to tackle pulling out those pesky weeds.
2. Build yourself a shed
It doesn’t matter whether you’re a keen gardener or you just want to neaten up your garden so that you can enjoy the nicer weather. You’ll need tools to help you achieve what you want to do. While you might have space in your home to keep your tools, why clutter up your home when you can build yourself a garden shed? Even if you don’t want to build it completely from scratch, you can take a look at some sheds online to find one that will fit the aesthetic of your garden. It will not only help store your tools neatly, but it will help you keep any dangerous items in a safe place away from children or pets.
3. Refresh the garden furniture
Your garden furniture might be looking a little worse for wear after enduring the winter weather, and with the warmer weather well on its way, it’s understandable that you want everything looking its best in your garden. If you’ve got wooden furniture, give it a clean and then a lick of waterproof sealant to extend its life a little further. If you’ve got plastic or metal furniture, give it a wipe down and add some cushions for comfort. It might be a good idea to cover it with tarpaulin when it’s not in use to protect it from bad weather.
4. Plant evergreens
It’s still a little cold to start planting tender plants, but you can still make your garden look pretty by planting evergreens. Because they last all year and can survive through the winter, you’ll be giving yourself a base to work from in the future. Not only that, but it will save you some time when it comes to choosing plants in the summer.
5. Welcome wildlife
Finally, why not embrace wildlife and welcome it into your garden? Buy a bird feeder and place a bird bath to enjoy watching the birds when you’re relaxing in your garden. You could also put out shelters for hedgehogs to nest in and some fresh water so they have something to drink from. There’s something so beautiful about a garden filled with wildlife, so consider offering them an invite to appreciate your garden too!
