Cramming a years gardening into a days work!
If you’re like me, you’ll love the idea of having a beautiful garden which all the family can enjoy when the sun finally decides to shine. You may have seen that we recently had some work done in our garden and we’re now searching Pinterest for other things we can add into it to make it perfect for us.
As you’re not in it all the time, it’s easy to let the garden get neglected – so to help out with this, I’ve listed my top tips to getting your garden in ship-shape condition over a weekend (or a day if it’s all hands to the pump!)
After a long time being unused, most gardens will be in a bit of a ‘wild’ state and will need a bit of TLC before they’re going to look garden-ready for guests. Start your day with a little bit of tearing down; even better if you can get friends and family in on the action too as it’s pretty labour intensive.
If that’s a bit too much like hard work, you could always call in the professionals; companies like https://www.lawncare.net/service-areas/alabama/ are there to lighten the load and save you from a bad back!
Once you have a blank canvas to work with, it’s time to start getting some planting done. There are several ways to approach this, but going with a product which is designed to make the whole thing as easy as possible is a good idea. Seed kits can be found online or in shops such as Wilko or The Range, which allow you to simply scatter, water, and watch as the plants grow over the course of the spring and summer months. Bulbs can also work well, as these will survive through winter and come back the next year.
To make your garden last throughout the whole of summer, it does require a little bit of treatment. Companies like https://www.seasol.com.au/ have dedicated themselves to creating products which can help plants to live through even the harshest summers, keeping them from going yellow or looking like they haven’t had enough water.
The Regular Work
With a garden which is based on grass and flowers, there will always come a little bit of work which has to be done regularly. Mowing the grass is a big part of this, with this job taking a lot of time if you decide to do it yourself. Contractors like https://www.jimsmowing.com.au/service/lawn-mowing/ can handle this job for you, taking away the pressure to spend more time working on your garden than you’d like to.
Hopefully, this post will inspire you to do more with your garden before summer rolls around again.
