5 Simple spring gardening tips

With warmer days on the horizon there has never been a better time to spruce up your garden and give it a whole new lease of life!

Make a schedule  

Say goodbye to frantic cleaning! Before you make a start on your spring clean, make sure to plan out your time. This way you can be as efficient as possible. Start by making a list of all of the jobs that need to be done, the time each of those will take, their priority, and the essential items you will need to get the job done.

Once you have this set out, you can see which jobs have the highest priority and need to be done first.

Have a spring clean

There’s no doubt that the weather will have taken a huge toll on your garden. First things first get on your glad rags grab some gloves grab a rake and shovel and lets get to work!

Once your gardens looking tidy and all the debris has been thrown away, make sure to freshen up your soil. Excessive rain compacts soil and washes up important nutrients that soil needs to thrive. Make sure to top it up with compost to add back some moisture along with some fertiliser to ensure it’s got all the nutrients it needs to flourish.

Be a cut above the rest

Once all the debris has been cleared away, it’s time to tidy up the lawn! Giving the lawn a fresh cut, not only instantly makes your garden appear much neater, it also gives your grass a healthy fresh start, perfect for the gorgeous spring and even summer flowers to bloom!

Out with the old … in with the new!

Plants from last season need to be trimmed, if they’re not dead they’ll be hanging on by a thread by now, by trimming them you’re giving them a better chance of blooming again this coming summer.

Once you have given your garden the once over and all of your existing plants and shrubs are tidied up, it’s finally time to bring in some new additions! Even at this time of the season you can still bring in your tulips or pansies, these are both great additions to add a pop of colour to your garden!

You can also start planting some summer-flowering plants such as lilies, Begonias and Freesias, perfect for the coming summer!
