Springing Into Action When It Comes To The Garden

I know you may be looking out your window right now and seeing dull, cold, and wet weather but I think we are over the hurdle of winter and heading into Spring quicker than we realize. The days are getting longer and brighter, and so there is no surprise that many of us are turning our attention to our homes. The garden, however, can get a little overlooked during the spring. As more people focus on decluttering and spring cleaning the home. So I thought I would spring into action and help you with some quick and easy tips on how to get your garden back on track.

Let’s talk about the lawn

The lawn area can cover a huge part of your exterior outdoor space, so if it isn’t in the best condition, your garden can look a lot worse for it. So it may be worth getting the mower out at your earliest convenience and cutting the grass down. Before doing that, though, it might be a good idea to clear any debris and leaves. Adding a lawn feed to your freshly mowed lawn will encourage it to grow as the weather gets warmer. A nice green and manicured lawn can take of a huge issue in your garden, and make it look wonderfully appealing for the Spring and Summer months ahead.

What about those overgrown trees and shrubs?

During the winter months it’s understandable that your garden will get neglected, after all, no one really wants to be out in the rain cutting back the bushes and pruning. However, now spring is finally gracing us with it’s presence it would be the ideal time to put a little of your focus on those overgrown trees and shrubs. If you feel like they are a lot to handle, then some of the services from Atkins Inc could help you get them looking better than ever.

It’s time for those yearly chores

We may have been putting them off for some time, but now is the ideal opportunity to tick some of those yearly chores of your ongoing “to do” list. This might include things like clearing out the gutters and drains, brushing the pathway or drive. Maybe even steam cleaning that patio or decked area. All of which will make a huge difference to your garden, making it much more user-friendly as the weather warms up.

Think about the ways you can use your garden more this year

Finally, now would be a great time to consider what you want to use your garden for this year. Do you want to do more entertaining? Do you want to make sure it remains tidy throughout the warmer months? Do you plan on eating outside and spending more time with family and friends? This is when you may want to consider storage space in your garden and creating particular areas for different activities.

I hope this has inspired you to make more use out of your garden this year and motivated you to get it into shape this Spring.
