Planning your Spring garden gives you a focus away from the chills of winter. Before long, you’ll be seeing yourself picking Spring flowers and sipping wine in the sun.
So while you’re deep in the winter period, take the opportunity to plan just how you’re going to improve your home in 2019.
There’s nothing quite like the procession of Spring with its blooming beauty and brilliance. So perhaps this can be the best place to start.
Spring is often the time to commit to deep household cleansing and throwing out old junk. Adding decorative efforts to that list can just be overwhelming.
Your garden, however, is starting to develop its bloom. This can be an excellent period of garden maintenance and care to spruce up your green space.
Your Spring garden can be a colourful and natural space that’s a respite from work or a fun place to entertain.
Spring Garden Maintenance
First of all, gardens need maintenance. If you have experienced a harsh and unpredictable winter, your downpipes, driveway or even garage may have been damaged by ice or wind. Or perhaps you’ve had winter growth leaving your garden overgrown and disorganised.
Do a bit of a garden audit by taking note of areas that may have suffered minor flooding, drainage problems, bald grass, or if concrete, pavers or downpipes are broken.
Look for other maintenance jobs such as re-varnishing the garden furniture, tightening the bars on your child’s playframe, or raking the mulch away from the garden pathway. And if there is too much to do, hire some help such as having your lawn mowed using Green Acres Mowers.
When you actively look for maintenance jobs you’ll find enough to do. So pick a warm day and grab the iPod for company. Music always makes chores less arduous.
Spring Garden Love
A garden is supposed to be used and enjoyed, not simply constructed as a visual piece. Consider how the summer of family love could be experienced in your garden.
Get creative with design plans to build your own Wendy House for your children (or perhaps more ideally purchase one already constructed).
Repair your greenhouse for a wonderful summer of vegetables. Get romantic and install a garden swinging bench for you and your partner to enjoy long summer evenings.
A garden is nothing if not loved, so consider how you might want to adapt your garden to your lifestyle.
A Social Spring Garden
Why not make 2019 the year that your garden is used as a hosting area? Consider the natural flow between the interior and exterior.
Perhaps you want to invest in wooden decking, a new pergola, or safer tiered steps. Seating is important when you want to host a barbecue. Build a walkway to safely navigate around your garden pond, or install those hammocks you’ve always wanted.
Plan your spring garden in advance and be sure to dream big!
