With spring in full swing and summer on the horizon, it might be time to turn your attention to the garden to get it summer-ready for the long hot days and warm, relaxing evenings.
If like many your garden is somewhere you abandon in the winter and can’t live without in the summer, read on to find out our top tips for getting your garden summer-ready…
Tip #1 – Scrub up
Low-maintenance patios can look the part when they’re first laid down, but during the wetter, colder months they can often look a little green around the gills. Invest in a pressure washer to blast away dirt and grime to leave your patio looking as good as new!
Tip #2 – Luscious lawn
Like humans, grass also needs feeding on a regular basis to keep It looking gorgeously green and plush. For that fresh, lush look, mow your lawn regularly and scatter feed all over the surface. Continue this every few days throughout the summer months for the very best results and enjoy a hit of that freshly cut grass smell.
Tip #3 – Light it up
Solar lights are an impressive and cost-effective way of adding atmosphere and character to your garden without breaking the bank. There’s a light for all styles, ranging from solar light posts, to fairy lights and lanterns that will all help to create the ‘wow’ factor.
Tip #4 – Flower power
You don’t need to be a professional gardener to brighten up your garden with a few flowers. Visit your local garden centre and pick up a few of your favourite plants or flowers, find a nice spot and you’re good to go! Make sure you water them regularly then watch them grow and transform your garden over the summer months and beyond.
Top tip #5 – Relax and enjoy
After all that hard work, all that’s left to do is relax, unwind and enjoy the comfort of your fresh new garden with friends and family. Or, better yet, treat yourself to a Jacuzzi hot tub and enjoy your garden all year round!
