At a certain time of the year, we all want to be able to get outside more. As the weather starts to get more pleasant, it’s easy to think about enjoying it outside. Yet, when things haven’t been touched all season and your garden is looking a little worse for wear, you might need to do something about that first. This is where the idea of the seasonal garden spruce comes in. So if you’ve yet to get out and tackle your garden but you’d like to be able to, you’re going to want to focus on that next. To inspire you, we’re going to run through some options for you to consider next.
For starters, you’re absolutely going to want to make sure that you declutter the space. This will make it easier for you to see what needs doing. Once it’s all cleaned up, think about pruning anything back that needs pruning and ripping out anything that’s dead or that you want to replace. Then it’s a blanc canvas ready to beautify.
Make Any Repairs
Next, if there’s anything big that needs to be done, you’ll want to think about getting that out of the way next. Whether you need to repair your deck or completely redo your patio, get full pool renovations or any maintenance, or even get new fencing or your exciting one repaired, book them in now. These are the things that could affect your ability to use the garden, so you might want to think about making them a priority and doing the first.
Improve Your Lawn
Next up, you’re going to want to take a little look at your lawn and see what you can do for it. If it’s looking a little worse for wear, then you may find that it’s going to be a good idea for you to use some fertilizer or even get some seeding in there too. You’ll want this to look lush and gorgeous, so should try to keep it tidy too.
Plant Something Pretty
If you love looking at a beautiful garden in the summer, then you should then think about the idea of planting pretty things. It could be that you want to add some of your favorite flowers that you can cut and bring into the home or go with hardwearing perennials for year-round ease.
Getting Your Entertaining Space Ready
And finally, you’re then going to want to make sure that you’ve been able to get your outdoor living space ready to use. After all, this is the one space that we all really want to be able to use. So if you need to make those earlier repairs or hose everything down, do it now. You may find that you also need to pick up a new outdoor dining set, lounge seating, or even a new grill. At least you’ll then find that it’s all ready to use on days when the weather is just gorgeous.
