How Does Your Garden Grow? Top Tips To Prepare Your Garden For Spring
It may still be a little cold outside, but spring is just around the corner and now is the time to start preparing your garden to help it come alive!
Whether you’re moving into your first home with a garden, or can’t wait to give your outdoor space some TLC, global leading producer of outdoor power tools Husqvarna Group, the name behind the Flymo brand, shares some handy hints to try now for a glorious outdoor space this Easter.
So brave the weather and start digging, pruning and prepping to reap the rewards for the new season ahead and a summer of al fresco fun.
Time to Get Thinking
Start by setting gardening goals and planning what activities you wish to carry out in advance and whether you have all of the tools you need to do them. That shed could probably do with a stock check. Take into consideration what you wish to grow, where you plan to plant them and exactly how you want your garden to look in full bloom.
The Pre-Spring Clean
After the harsh winter and months of being starved of sunshine your garden may look a little neglected. A pre-spring clean will ensure you have a blank canvas ready for the warmer months ahead. It is important to take the time to clear any mess including dead sticks, leaves and any rubbish that may have appeared. A quick and simple way is to arm yourself with a garden vac and a leaf blower.
Maintaining Your Tools
Even though you still have time before the first cut of the season, it’s still a good idea to start thinking about getting to grips with your lawn. It is essential to give your gardening equipment a once over to check it is in a safe, working condition. For instance, the blade in your lawnmower is crucial for not only a clean cut but also in helping to reduce mowing time. If it has become dull and worn, Flymo customers can purchase a genuine replacement blade to suit a specific model. With any mechanical tool, after the winter it’s best to refer to the manufacturer’s instructions to prepare your product for the new season.
The most daunting job for many can be weeding the garden, but by getting on top of the task now, you will benefit for the remainder of the year.
Time for a Trim
As the weather starts to get a little warmer, your garden will soon spring into life again so it’s the ideal opportunity to tackle any unsightly hedges and bushes. A quick tidy will make a real impact on how your garden looks overall.
A date for the diary is Sunday 9 April which has officially been named ‘First Cut Sunday’ by Flymo so make sure all the prep work is out of the way for a clean sweep of the lawn on this day – in perfect time to gather your friends and family for the Easter weekend in the garden.
