With summer fast approaching, now is the perfect time to start prepping your garden for the warmer weather and brighter rays. Correctly preparing your garden will make for a season of flourishing plants and a more enjoyable space to spend time in the sun. Here are 3 ways that you can start to prepare your garden for summer.
Many people will not start to tackle their weeds until deep into the summer months, but this is often too late. Starting on your weeds before summer rolls around will help you to stay on top of the task and keep your summer garden tidy. Ideally, you should start to weed before the plants flower so that seeds are not spread to other areas of your garden space. This will help to minimise the task at hand.
Clean Your Tools
Tools are an essential part of gardening and will be used widely to maintain your garden in the summer. To make sure that you are prepared for this, you should clean and prep your gardening tools. Tools can become worn and grubby with use so will need to be regularly washed. You should also remember to oil your gardening equipment to prevent rust from building up. You could perhaps use this time before summer to stock up on any equipment that you don’t have to hand. This will prevent you from running into any difficulties when you start the bulk of your summer gardening.
Trim Your Hedges
You will be surprised at the amount of space you can make in your garden by simply trimming down some weeds and hedges. You should think about doing this before summer arrives so that your garden can be neat and tidy for those evenings spent in the sun. Hedge trimming can be a rather enjoyable task and is fairly easy to do. Just make sure that you have the right tools available and that you clean the area of any twigs or rubbish before you begin to trim.
