As spring is just around the corner, now is the time to get on with all of those garden jobs that will have your garden looking its very best in the summer. Doing garden maintenance jobs is good at this time of the year, as the worst of the winter should be behind us now – and if it isn’t it is good to get those repairs done before more damage is caused!
Look After the Trees – If you have trees near your home, making sure that they are well maintained is essential. Getting a professional like this tree surgeon Bournemouth to cut them back if they are becoming too large, as well as keeping an eye on the roots is important when you have trees near the house.
Clean Up – Winter can leave the garden looking a little messy and untidy, so there is plenty of cleaning to be done at this time of the year. Decking areas and patios may need a wash to remove dirt and moss, and you can clean out pots ready for the spring.
Prepare Wildlife Areas – Wild animals are starting to stir and if you like to help the local wildlife you can now prepare for the spring. Put up bird nesting boxes ready for the garden birds and provide wildflower areas for bees and butterflies to enjoy.
Start to plant Seeds – Now you can start to sow the seeds that will be in the garden in the summer. As it is still cold, get them started in the greenhouse or on a windowsill in your home until the risk of frosty nights has passed.
