My Tips For Getting Your Garden Ready For Summer

As the weather is starting to warm up, it seems to be the time that we all start thinking about how we can get our gardens ready for summer. I know that all we want to actually do is to soak up the sun as soon as it arrives, just in case it disappears again, but it is nice to get your garden in shape before the summer months arrive, so you don't have to fight with weeds rather than enjoy the sun when it does finally arrive.

I try to make sure our garden looks gorgeous as during these months it really does become an extension of our indoor living space. Like another amazingly colourful room that is full of life for the whole family to enjoy. 

So, here are my tips to getting your garden ready for summer:

Love Your Lawn
A garden with a luscious lawn looks amazing and so giving it a good cut will make your garden stand out. I find that freshly cut gardens always seem to look bigger too. And at least the kids wont be getting lost on the jungle come summer time. 

Clean The Summer Essentials
There isn't nothing worse than finally getting that day of sun and realising that you haven't cleaned the BBQ from last years use. Now is the perfect time to dig out all of your garden furniture, and the BBQ, and give it a thorough clean so it's pristine condition and ready to be used.

Give The Fence Some Loving
I think the fence is one thing that we always seem to forget about when it comes to looking after our garden. The fence can either make the garden look well looked after, or, down in the dumps. So, before summer comes it is a great idea to give your fence a revitalised look of colour and health.A quick lick of Creosote will get it looking as good as new. 

Get Planting Those Flowers
Flowers can make any sized garden look summery and now is the perfect time to be planting them. If you have children and don't want to have them trampled when the kids are chasing footballs, then Cox and Cox have some gorgeous looking planters to really make your garden stand out, and keep the flowers off the ground. 

And so, if you follow my tips now, you'll have the perfect garden come summer time, once the flowers are in bloom.
