True gardeners know that there is always something you can do to improve your garden. It doesn’t matter what time of year it is, there are always ways to make your garden as fantastic and as beautiful as you like. Of course, certain seasons do lend themselves particularly well to being out in the garden, and summer has to be the gardener’s absolute all-time favorite. In summer, you can really do whatever you want, with the only limit being your imagination and the actual space you have to work with. But what are some of the best things to do if you want to improve your garden in summer? Let’s look at some of your top options.
For most gardens, the lawn is the main focal point. If you are able to get it to a point where it is really turning heads, then you’ll find that the rest of the garden looks much improved too. There are a bunch of things you can do for a better lawn. Keeping it well trimmed is an obvious start, and one of the easier tasks, and you should ensure that you do just that at the start of summer and every four or five weeks thereafter. You might want to give your lawn a little feed too, as over winter it could have become a little parched. Feeding is often what gives you the emerald-green lusciousness that you really want. It’s really that simple to keep your lawn looking great, so make sure you get on it this summer.
Some Choice Furniture
One of the tasks of gardening is knowing how to actually make the most of your outdoor space. In other words, you need to think of your garden as the space it actually is, and think about what you might reasonably be able to do with it. If you think in this way, you might discover some surprising solutions to making your garden vastly improved. A common way to make more of the garden is to find some choice furniture and dot a few pieces around here and there. It might be that you want to stick to the patio – but you don’t have to. That furniture can go anywhere, and you can improve any corner of the garden this way. It’s well worth a shot if you are at a loss as to what to do.
Give Your Plants A Lift
Have you tried lifting? If you don’t already know, this is when you remove the lower branches from trees and shrubs, in order to make them look neater and tidier. Although only a small job to carry out, it can be pleasantly alarming what a difference it makes to the look of the plant. And when you achieve this, it helps to make the whole garden look much healthier and more full of life. If there are smaller plants underneath them, they will benefit from this too, as they will be able to get more nutrients and more sunlight as a result. Your whole garden will shine from a little lift, so consider that on your list.
