It’s easy to neglect your garden when you’re not using it much. But with summer just around the corner, you’ll wanting to use it a lot soon. So, here’s how to make your garden more alive for summer!
- Tidy the Garden Up
Before you go any further, you should take the time to tidy up the garden. This allows you to create a clean slate on which you can reorganize the garden and add new features. If you haven’t been out into the garden and done any work on it for a few months, it’s probably in pretty poor shape.
Start by pulling up any weeds that are taking over you patio, lawn, and flowerbeds. You might need some strong weed killer if you’re going to get rid of the problem permanently. Next you should cut the grass and wash down the patio and decking area.
- Divide the Garden Up Into Sections
The best looking gardens are the ones that are clean and organized. You should consider what you want and need from your garden and then start to plan it out before you take action. One part of the garden could be devoted to relaxation and chilling while another can be where the children play.
You should apply the same mentality to what you choose to plant in the garden. You might want to start a small veg patch so you can grow your own food. Remember to keep the veg patch separate to your flowerbeds though. Each should have its own space in the garden.
- Revitalize Your Lawn
You can’t achieve a great garden unless you have a great lawn. You might want to relay the lawn if it’s been left to die and struggle over the winter months. But if it’s still in a good condition, just cut the grass, but not too short. And then look after your lawn all year round to make sure it doesn’t need rescuing again next year!
One way to keep your lawn in good condition is by installing a sprinkler system. This will give your lawn the water it needs, without the risk of giving it too much. That means you won’t have to worry about how much water the lawn is getting because the sprinkler system will do the work for you.1

Spring is the best time to buy garden furniture because all the retailers are slashing their prices ahead of summer. So, if your old garden chair and table are looking like they’ve seen better days, now is the time to replace them. You can find something stylish and comfortable without breaking the bank.
And, if the weather is good over the summer, it might be one of the best investments you make all year. Think of all the parties and event you’ll be able to host for friends and family when you have a great garden and great garden furniture! There’s no better way to spend the summer than relaxing with friends in the garden.
