If you want to make sure that your garden is ready for summer, then this is very easy to do. It doesn’t have to cost a fortune and it doesn’t have to take days on end either. In fact, with these top tips, you will soon see that it is more convenient than ever for you to whip your garden back into shape.

Add some Color

The first thing that you need to do is add some color. Your containers should be full of flowers, such as impatiens, geraniums or even petunias. When you do invest in flowers such as this, you will soon find that they will brighten up the space and they will also attract wildlife too. If you are struggling for space to put your flowers then you can easily look into hanging baskets or even pots on the patio. When you do this, you can then feel assured knowing that everything is in place and ready for the hot weather that’s to come.

Fragrance


You should also try and focus on fragrance wherever possible. Think about having jasmine, roses or even gardenias. These should be planted next to your deck or even your patio where possible. The main reason for this is because it will make all the difference to the way that your guests feel, and it will also help to take your garden to that next level.


Tidy Up

You would always straighten up your house for when your guests arrive, so you should try and do the same for the garden. This can make a huge difference and it will make everything look so much more open. You should also add some mulch as well. Mulch can serve a lot of different purposes, for example, it can help you to conserve moisture and it can also help you to moderate any fluctuations in the temperature of the soil too. Remember though, that too much mulch can be a bad thing, so don’t pile it up against trees and also don’t have it more than 3” either.


Fencing

If possible, you should always make sure that your fencing is clean and that it is also stable. If you have rotting fencing, then now is most certainly the time to get it replaced. Look into local fence contractors or even look into getting the fencing that you have now stained.

Your Lawn

If you have a couple of weeds in the garden then weed killer can go a long way. It will eradicate any problems that you might be having, and you may even find that it can save you hours of work. Your weed killer should be sprayed sparingly however because if you spray too much then you may find that it kills off the grass and the last thing that you need is to have patches where nothing can grow.

So, sprucing up your garden in time for summer is super easy to do and you would be surprised at how much of a difference it can make to your home’s aesthetic value.

  1. Just start using different fertilizers and tools to get your garden in order. Often in the summer, you can expect a drought, think about irrigation systems or any other ways to supply water to your garden. Also, keep quality soil in reserve. For example, before the season, I make a big purchase in gardenology so that I have enough of everything necessary for the whole season. Also, don't forget to buy new plants and remove weeds
