Summer seems to be here already with the scorching sunny weather we have been having in the past few days. After weeks and weeks of horrid weather, a little bit of sunshine has put a smile on all of our faces.
But our gardens are definitely looking a little worse for wear, aren’t they? It is time to get them looking summer ready and here are some top tips.
Cut The Grass
Perhaps the most obvious thing to do of all – cut the grass! The seeds you planted in your garden will have a much cleaner space to grow too. After all, we haven’t been able to mow it whilst the weather has been so wet and it is probably looking a little overgrown! Get it cut whilst the weather is nice so you can truly enjoy the benefits.
Give It A Makeover
Whether you are buying new or simply rejuvenating or repurposing some existing garden items, giving your garden a makeover is a great way to get it summer ready. We have been looking for some new garden furniture as ours is on its last legs. This Lazy Susan 4 seater garden table is a great option to fit all of the family. It can be tough to find garden furniture for 4 people as we often find that companies cater to couples or larger families instead.
Pressure Wash The Patios And Decking
If you have a patio or some decking, these can easily get dirty and stained – you will be amazed at how dirty they can actually get! If you have a pressure washer, use it to clean it up nicely. If you don’t have one, you can easily borrow one – just ask on your local Facebook group to see if someone can lend you one.
Clear Out The Shed
With the weather so nice, now is a great time to declutter your shed. They can easily become a dumping ground for many different items – out of sight, out of mind as the saying goes. But getting rid of the stuff you don’t need is surely beneficial. It means you can store items such as the kids bikes or garden tools away instead of them cluttering up the garden itself.
Weeds are the bane of any garden so it is important to weed on a regular basis. It can seem like a never ending task and often feels like a losing battle. By keeping on top of your weeding, you are less likely to find yourselves overwhelmed with them!
Spruce Up The Fence
If you have given the garden and the furniture a new lease of life, have you considered the fence too? The cold and wet weather can have a detrimental effect on the longevity and condition of your fences so make sure to paint them and treat them when you can. They really benefit from that extra layer of protection.
These are just a few tips to help you get your garden summer ready. How is your garden looking right now – have you already started sprucing it up? Do you have any other tip suggestions?
