time you started getting your garden ready for
those late night BBQs with your family and
These 8 tips shouldn’t take you too long to do
and it will definitely make you feel much more
relaxed about the upcoming summer season.
TIDY UP FLOWER BEDS & BORDERS
It’s time to start clearing away all the debris from your
flower beds and borders that has built up over the
winter. Once you’ve done that you’re nearly ready to
start choosing which flowers you want to plant, so
everything is perfect for the Summer.
TRIM TREE BRANCHES
It’s a good time of the year to start trimming back tree
branches and start getting them into the shape you
want for Summer.This way they should carry on
growing the way you want them too.
TRIM THE HEDGES
Trimming the hedges is never a fun job as it requires
lots of hard work and even a climb of the ladder or
two. Once it’s done you can sit back and enjoy your
nice, neat and tidy garden. As you only have to do it
once maybe twice a year it will definitely be worth it.
RESTORE YOUR GARDEN FURNITURE
Have you got your garden furniture out of the shed and
it’s starting to look a little grey and unhappy? Well
instead of spending money on a new set why don’t you
look into buying some furniture oil and put a little
elbow grease into making them look new.
PLANT YOUR VEGGIES
If you’ve got space for a vegetable patch in your
garden then why not clear it out and start planting
your own vegetables? If you’ve got children it’s a great
way for them to get outdoors and learn how some of
the food they eat is produced.
CLEAN YOUR GARDENING TOOLS
Before starting your gardening give your tools a good
clean and a sharpen if needs be! By caring for your
garden tools it will help to preserve them and will
save you money in the long run. Sharpening tools will
improve performance and you’ll find they’re much
easier to work with.
FIX FENCES & GATES
As it’s not quite Summer yet it’s the ideal time to get
those boring jobs done such as fixing your broken
fences and gates from all that wind we’ve had this
Winter! Get those fixed now and spend more time
enjoying your garden during Spring and Summer.
SWIMMING POOL/HOT TUB REPAIRS
If you’re lucky enough to own a pool/hot tub then
you’ll need to make sure it’s all in working order.
Check the water pump, the water levels and make
sure all electronics are working. Pool and hot tub
repairs can take a while and can be quite expensive if
left for a long period of time, so it’s best to fix them
before Summer so people get full use out of them.
After you’ve done all that it’s time to sit back,
relax and enjoy the Summer! Remember to keep
on top of watering your plants and you’ll have a
healthy happy garden.
