Whether you have a small balcony garden or a large backyard, you can do some simple things to get your Spring garden ready for the new season. In this article, we’ll give you four tips on how to prepare your garden for spring.

We’ll help you prepare your garden beds, choose the right plants, and start planting. We’ll also give you tips on caring for your Spring garden as the season progresses.

Clear out weeds and debris

One of the best ways to prepare your garden for spring is to clear weeds and debris from your garden beds. Most gardens have a few weeds that grow out of season, damaging the plants you’re growing and making it hard to walk through your garden beds. Use a handheld or electric weed wacker to remove weeds. To remove debris, use a garden rake to collect leaves and other materials and throw them in your compost bin. Cut back any dead or diseased branches from your trees, shrubs, and plants. Dead branches can attract pests and diseases, so it’s best to remove them before spring arrives.

Plant perennials and fertilise the garden

Perennials are plants that come back every year, so they’re a great option if you’re trying to get your garden ready for spring. By planting perennials in the autumn, they’ll grow and bloom in the spring. Some good examples of perennials are hyacinths, daffodils, tulips, and roses. Perennials can also be a good option if you’re looking for a flower that’s easy to care for. Plant perennials in garden beds, pots, and containers. To fertilise your garden, you can use either a granular or liquid fertiliser. 

Add a fresh coat of paint to fences and garden structures.

Once you have cleaned up your garden, you might find it can benefit from a fresh coat of paint. There are many options for you to add colour to your garden. From walls to windows and doors, fences, or even adding colour to concrete flooring. Why not start small by painting garden ornaments or plant pots for a new look. See how you feel slowly introducing bits of colour before jumping head first into painting a whole wall or fence?

Look for garden furniture

If you’re looking to add some extra style to your garden, you can look for new garden furniture. There are tons of different designs and styles of garden furniture that you can add to your garden, from classic pieces to modern creations.

Popular additions to gardens include items that make socialising easier, such as decking, dining and informal seating options, pergolas, fire pits, garden mirrors, and hanging art. Fire pits are great for the changing season. Allowing you to enjoy your garden during the winter and as the season changes into spring.

Enjoy your spring garden!

Once you’ve completed these four tips on preparing your spring garden, you should have a garden ready to be enjoyed. Now, all you have to do is sit back and enjoy it as the flowers start to bloom. Walk through your garden, sit on your porch and enjoy your garden, or even host a garden party. With a new spring garden, you’ll be able to enjoy it for months to come.
