As the spring gets underway, many homeowners find that their gardens have been neglected or damaged during the winter. If this situation sounds familiar, now is the time to act and take some crucial steps towards minimising any damages caused to you garden during the winter and towards getting it ready for the upcoming spring season.Our latest article here at Kite Landscapes take a look at three simple ways in which this can be achieved.
Get Your Garden Equipment Ready
Although grass continues to grow during the winter, it usually does so at a slower pace due to the effects of cold weather. This means that by the time the spring arrives, it might have been a while since the last time you used your lawn mower. To get your garden ready for the spring, it is essential that you check for any potential problems with this crucial piece of equipment, such as engine faults in lawn mowers, bent or blunt blades in hedge trimmers, or damaged wiring in any electrical gardening equipment.
Invest In Professional Landscape Gardening
If you have overlooked your garden during the winter, you may feel easily overwhelmed by the sheer amount of work that is now required to get it back into shape. The truth is that some aspects of landscape maintenance are best left to the professionals, so at least once a year make sure you enlist the help of skilled landscape gardeners to help with this.
Revamp Seating Areas
If you are planning on entertaining friends or relatives later on in the year, spend some time getting all outdoor seating areas ready. This could include anything from renovating the existing furniture to building a modern patio or adding living space to your garden by investing in quality decking.
