5 Things You Can Do in Your Garden Now To Be Ready for Summer

If you’re a family that loves spending time in their garden whenever possible, then you’re probably ready and raring to get back out there now that the more pleasant weather is on its way. Unfortunately, the fall and winter weather may have left behind some carnage that you need to deal with first. So, we’ve put together this handy checklist so that you can get your back garden back up to scratch and ready to make new memories.

Pull dead weeds

If there’s one thing all gardens struggle with no matter where you are in the world, it’s weeds. And, because you’ve probably been holed up inside trying to keep warm recently, there’s a good chance they may have become overgrown over the last few months. So, now’s the time to dig out your gardening gloves and a decent weed killer and make your rounds in your back garden. A simple task like pulling dead weeds and preventing them from coming back is the perfect first step to rebuilding your garden.

Clean your pool

If you’re lucky enough to have a pool in your backyard, then it will have collected lots of grime and debris over the past few months. Even when you cover your pool, any bacteria or dirt left behind can multiply, leaving you with a pool that’s greener than your lawn. Now’s the time to get in touch with a pool supply company to get the chemicals you need to give it a good clean before the warmer weather hits. You may need to keep on top of this, but it will be so worth it when it comes to spending time in the pool this summer with your family.

Refresh your garden furniture

The winter brings with it lots of different weather conditions, which may have taken a toll on your garden furniture. And, if you forgot to cover it, you might have a bit of work on your hands. Wipe down metal and plastic furniture, and give your wooden furniture a lick of durable paint to freshen everything up. Then, grab yourself some tarpaulin and cover it so that you don’t have to clean it again (or at least as much) when you want to sit out in the garden.

Rake and clear your lawn

Fall is most commonly known for falling leaves, but it still happens during the winter too. If you’ve neglected to stay on top of any leaves or other debris around your garden, now’s the time to grab your rake and clear anything on your lawn. If it’s dry out, you could also mow your lawn to get a head start on things.

Prune trees

Finally, like most other areas of your garden, trees will have become overgrown and may now look unsightly. Or, maybe they’re obstructing other areas of your garden. For aesthetics and safety, take the time to prune back your trees and shrubbery so that once things start to bloom again, your garden will be ready and waiting to enjoy.
