Getting your garden ready for spring
After a long, cold winter, are you itching to get back out into your garden? If you’re looking forward to the longer days of spring and the cheery transformation that your garden goes through, here are some ways to get ready:
A dreary winter’s day is the perfect time to start planning your spring garden. Order in your seeds and bulbs for summer blooms so you can get cracking with your early spring planting as soon as it’s time.
Your garden will need some tidying up so get rid of leaves lying around, cut away any dead growth from perennials and clear out any debris from your beds and borders. Remove weeds and if the soil is good enough, dig into the borders and lay some compost or manure.
Tools that have been lying unused during winter will benefit from a wipe down and sharpening. Looking after your tools will preserve their function for longer. Give your mower a bit of TLC ready for spring. Check the oil levels, tighten the wheels, and lubricate the parts. For Briggs And Stratton Parts, visit DIY Engine Parts
Coming into spring is the perfect opportunity to take care of those maintenance jobs. Examine any fence panels for winter damage, replacing anything that has decayed or been broken. Getting these jobs sorted now means spending more time doing what you love in the garden when the better weather arrives.
