Get Rid Of All That Winter Debris
Removing debris is the first step to approaching your spring tidy up. Your garden will have taken a battering over the autumn and winter months, however now you have a chance to get all that rubbish cleared away, so you can get your garden ready for spring. Try using a rake or broom to get all those broken off branches and leaves together, and be thorough, include any other debris that’s landed in your garden and then just place it in a wood chipper or just place directly into your compost.
It’s A Great Time To Start Pruning and Trimming
The next step is to take a careful look at your bushes and hedges to see what needs a gentle prune and trim. Trim them back carefully, only touch those that have become overgrown and ones which are damaged. If you have trees in your garden and they need a trim, and don’t feel you’re able to tackle it then call in a professional.
Plant Any New Seeds And Plants Now
This is a good time to start planting so check any dates on new plants you’ve bought recently. However, if you have some which you’re not really supposed to plant now, do it anyway if you feel they’re strong enough to survive a few cool days before the warmer temperatures arrive.
Are You Planning On Any Major Changes To Your Garden?
