HOW TO MAKE SURE YOUR GARDEN FLOURISHES IN TIME FOR SUMMER
As with anything in life, you get out of it what you put into it, and gardening is no different. You can take the cheaters approach (not that there is anything wrong with that) and call in your gardener, or you can pull on the gardening gloves and get going yourself.
FIRST THINGS FIRST
Before starting, look around your garden and tidy up any toys,gardening tools, and other odds and ends that have been left lying around and place them in their correct place. If you don’t have appropriate storage, now is the time to buy a plastic storage solution from Keter. These attractive but tough storage containers come in all sizes, shapes, and colors; from small plastic boxes to large sheds, and everything in between. You can even incorporate outdoor seating with storage with an Eden garden bench.
Now that the yard and garden has been tidied up, it’s time for some more intensive garden activity.
SPRING INTO ACTION
Spring, and especially late spring, is an excellent time for pruning and weeding. Do you have a proper watering system? Sprinklers and hoses are very wasteful of our precious water resources. Perhaps now is the time to install a drip irrigation system which will save you water and money. These systems can also be programmed for automatic watering, freeing up valuable time.
Add mulch, compost, and fertilizer to your soil. This is one of the healthiest things you can do for your garden. The Keter range of composters is the cheap and perfect way to create compost for your garden during the year so that it will be ready for use in Spring.
GETTING INTIMATE WITH YOUR GARDEN
Container plants for your deck or patio allow you to literally surround yourself with your garden. What could be more relaxing than that? Keter has an extensive range of planters that will make this task easy with colors and sizes to suit every space.
You may have let your garden lose some of its charm over Winter, but now is the time to restore it to its splendor just in time for Summer.
