Preparing Your Garden for Summer

As the warmer, sunnier days approach, it's time to spruce up our gardens after a long winter. This weekend marks the last bank holiday in May, making it the perfect opportunity to get your garden ready for any upcoming summer garden parties. Don't wait any longer – start preparing for the summer season today!

?If you have left your garden untouched over the colder months, preparing it for Summer can feel overwhelming so keep it simple. Avoid taking on a massive landscaping project from the get-go, since you don't want to be left with too much to look after.

Adding a Splash of Color to Your Garden

?Transform your lawn by digging out a bed and planting new flowers or plants. This simple solution can bring a burst of color and excitement to your garden. Whether you prefer a single-color scheme or a rainbow of blooms, the choice is yours. If you don't have a lawn, using flower pots to display a variety of plants is an excellent alternative.

Hanging Baskets 

Hanging boxes and baskets are a great addition to any outdoor area, regardless of its shape or size. Whether you choose to hang them from a fence or the side of your property, a basket full of flowers can add a vibrant burst of color and transform your outdoor space.

Lush Lawn

Maintaining your lawn can be a challenge, but there are ways to make it easier. When picturing a classic British garden, a flourishing and healthy lawn is often the first thing that comes to mind. If you’re yearning for a luscious lawn, then ensure that you water your green areas regularly.

When it comes to mowing your lawn, it is recommended to mow it every two weeks in spring, and weekly as you move towards summer. If it is a more polished look you are after, don't forget to focus on the edges and borders when mowing. This will give your lawn that refined finish you desire!

Outdoor Lighting

Outdoor lighting is the perfect way to ensure your outdoor space remains warm and welcoming even after the sun has set. Landscape lighting has become an integral element of garden design. With stylish options available, from string lights hung along your fence, to illuminating key features in your garden, this is a great way a welcoming feel!


The countdown is officially on till summer, we'll keep our fingers and toes crossed for a lovely warm British summer this year!
