This time of year with Easter out of the way and the Spring bank holiday been and gone, you should be able to look down the garden and see a delightful array of life. However, if you are like most of us the garden is still looking tired from the winter from the flower beds, to the garden lawn and even down to the garden shed.
Now is the time to do something about it and to transform your garden into a pleasant relaxing oasis. As Spring has arrived the addition of daffodils to the garden is a good choice but rather late for this year. Worth considering for next year. You will find these beautiful flowers which normally mark the start of spring have bloomed and faded and now is the time to start on the garden.
First your will need to venture into your garden shed and get the garden tools out, initially the stiff broom and rake will be a good start. Using the rake gather up all the leaves which fell into your garden from your local trees and bag these up for disposal or better still put onto the compost heap situated behind your shed.
After this work your way around the garden and the flower beds removing any weeds which will thrive and choke your flowers and plants if left to grow. The garden hoe will be a good tool to use against the weeds and will mean less bending down (and less backache).
Also be on the lookout for garden pests such as snails and slugs and deal with them before they get out of hand. Take the opportunity to cut your evergreen shrubs and plants as well as pruning your flowers. The garden hedge can be trimmed and tidied up if you did not do this last Autumn.
You can then get your lawn mower out of the garden shed and give the garden lawn a cut. If you have a large 24X10 or larger shed it would have been stored away neatly – wasn’t it? If it’s the first cut of the season then set the blades a little higher than normal. You can then drop the height on later cuts. Again gather up the grass cuttings and put on the compost heap hidden away behind the shed. After you have done this the use of the broom will collect up all the waste and when this is done your garden will look a lot better.
Maybe a trip to a garden centre might be a good idea where you can buy bedding plants in pots ready to be planted in your garden. In no time at all they will be flourishing and producing an array of colour for you. If the plants selected need shade from the wind then planting in front of the garden shed or fence is a good idea.
With the brown background of the shed you will find the colours of the flowers will show up really well, also helping to take away some of the plainness of the shed, certainly if your garden is on the small side.
To achieve the above all you need is a little enthusiasm and a little effort. Not a great deal of technical knowledge is needed, just basic common sense. If you achieve the above you will feel proud of your garden and if you include your garden shed in this early spree you will have an outdoor area, ideally at least 24ftx 10ft, to relax away from the house.
