How to prepare your garden for Spring
Spring is a time for new beginnings, and it's the perfect time to get your yard ready for the warmer weather.
By following a few simple steps, you can have a beautiful and inviting yard that you'll enjoy all season long.
Mow the lawn
The first step is to mow the lawn. This will help to remove any dead grass and debris, and it will also encourage new growth. If you have a roller on your lawn mower, create the lovely stripe pattern by going up and down your garden by slightly overlapping your previous live to make sure you have cut everything evenly.
Trim the hedges
Hedges can get overgrown over the winter, so it's a good idea to trim them back in the spring. This will help to keep them healthy and looking their best. Use hedge trimmers to trim the hedges back to the desired height.
Plant some flowers
Flowers are a great way to add colour and life to your yard. You can plant annuals, perennials, or bulbs. If you're not sure what to plant, ask a professional at your local garden centre for recommendations.
Start planting seeds or seedlings
If you have a garden, you can start planting seeds or seedlings in the spring. Be sure to choose plants that are suited to your climate and growing conditions.
Aerate the lawn
Aerating the lawn helps to improve drainage and aeration, which can help to prevent weeds and improve the health of your grass. Use an aerator to aerate the lawn in a grid pattern or gently press in the grass and lift up every 20 centimetres using a fork.
Fertilise the lawn
Fertilising the lawn helps to provide nutrients that your grass needs to grow healthy and strong. Use a fertiliser spreader to apply fertiliser to the lawn.
Water the lawn
Watering the lawn regularly is essential for keeping it healthy and green. Be sure to water deeply and infrequently if we don’t get enough rainfall.
Check for pests and diseases
Spring is a time when pests and diseases can start to become a problem. Be sure to inspect your garden regularly for signs of pests and diseases, and take steps to control them if necessary.
Enjoy your Garden!
After all your hard work, it's time to enjoy your gorgeous garden. Relax on the patio, have a barbecue, or just take a walk around and enjoy the fresh air.
