Gardening is a favoured pastime for many, but when our busy lifestyles get in the way it can be difficult to keep on top of and maintain it. When the weather begins to brighten up our gardens are there to be enjoyed, but if you’ve left it to become overgrown, tired and in need of some TLC, it might not be the relaxing environment you desire. Luckily, keeping your garden in good shape doesn’t have to become a chore.
In this blog, we’ll explain how your garden can stay looking good all year round.
Maintain the grass
As the main terrain in most gardens, if you let your grass become dry and patchy it can change the entire look of your garden. You should also keep on top of mowing to stop the grass turning into your own mini jungle – as overgrown grass will also encourage weeds to grow. When watering the grass, this should be done in the early morning and late evening, as during this time evaporation levels are lower and your grass can properly absorb all water.
Plant and prune
A simple but effective way of improving the look of your garden is to keep on top of weeds and prune your trees and bushes. Or, if you’d like to encourage wildlife into your garden, why not leave a small patch of grass untouched? Providing the perfect habitat for a whole host of creatures. Trees and bushes can remain in good condition by keeping them in shape with regular pruning, this will keep plants healthy, encourage growth and stop the spread of disease.
Perhaps you want to make a statement in your garden – this can be done by adding a water feature, birdbath or well-designed garden furniture. Create the perfect place to relax for you, your friends and family and make your garden the luxurious haven it should be!
Look after your tools
You can’t look after your garden if you don’t have the right tools and blunt or faulty equipment may cause more harm than good. Make sure you invest in high-quality tools that will last you for years to come, or for a more affordable option, hire tools from a professional service.
