Keep borders and hedges tidy
Now’s a good time to tidy up your borders and hedges with the use of hedge trimmers. Not only will tidying these up ensure the garden looks its best, but you’ll also find that pruning the hedges is important to stimulate growth. By doing this now, they’ll be looking even healthier by the time spring arrives.
Take care of your lawn grass
Your lawn may be looking a little overgrown, so give it a cut. This will reveal the condition of the grass, so you can plan the next steps of restoration. Spring is a good time to feed, rake and scarify your lawn to get it looking great when it grows back properly. Make sure to keep on top of your lawnmowing leading up to spring to make the job easier in the future.
Banishing weeds and soil preparation
Over the winter, weeds have been enjoying their time in your garden while you’ve been taking a break. As a part of your soil preparation, you should remove as many weeds as you can. Weedkiller is a great way to make them weak before you pull them out by hand, making your life significantly easier.
Add some lights
If you’re having spring garden parties, don’t let the night end when the sun sets. Instead, add lights to your trees, bushes and fences to illuminate your garden space for a good night with friends and family.
We recommend going for solar lights for your garden as they’ll be self-sufficient, so you won’t have to fork out for batteries and electricity costs.
While this list may be extensive, it will give you plenty of opportunities to get out into your green space, which is known to boost mental health. So, start your gardening clean-up today for a healthier-looking garden and a boosted mood.
