GET YOUR GARDEN FIT FOR THE SUMMER

 The weekend here has actually been really lovely - despite covid making an appearance, we’ve had some lovely sunshine and it has really felt like spring.


Nila thankfully hasn’t got the really severe symptoms so we’ve still been able to enjoy the garden and the girls have loved playing outside.

It definitely needs some TLC, and it got me thinking of what I want to get done over the next couple of months ready for the summer.

I’ve come up with  some ways that’ll help you get your garden sorted for this summer with little tips and tricks that won’t break the bank!.


SPRING CLEAN

This probably seems so obvious but we always start by tidying up and clearing up the mess. This could be cardboard boxes that have flown out of the wheelie bin and down the end of the garden - trust me ,it happens all the time.

Get rid of all the rubbish and you will definitely get a clearer view of the bigger picture, and what needs doing next.


OUT WITH THE OLD / IN WITH THE NEW

Any furniture that needs going to the skip get it gone and get ordering that new garden furniture right away. It can take a few weeks to be delivered so we always get them orders in first so by the time the garden is ready for the family BBQs, you’ll have everything you need already delivered.

We need a new table and chairs and we are actually going to get a hammock this summer . I’ve always wanted one but we’ve never had the space for it in our previous garden but this garden is huge and I am SO excited!.


CUT THE GRASS 

If you have grass , give it a once over with the lawn mower. We normally need to do this a few times if we have left it a while so cutting the grass is always one of the first things we do so underneath can dry up ready for the next cut in a few days.

PAINT THE FENCE

Is it just me that paints the garden fence to give it a new lease of life!. It instantly gives the garden a fresh and new feel to it and brightens it up so much. 

FLOWERS!!

We always plant new fresh flowers every year , we buy the seeds super cheap around Xmas time in the sales for the following summer. We love nature , especially the flowers that attract little friends and we also upcycle tyres to put them in which saves so much money and gives your garden a quirky edge to it .

I’d love to know what your doing to get your garden summer ready this year ..

  6. We have just cut the grass and moved the trampoline as the grass below it has died off! I am so excited for spring and summer - and to be able to be outside more.

  7. Spring cleaning is fun. It gets your mind right for getting everything else done you'd like to as well.
