The mornings are finally getting lighter, which means it’s time to get excited about spring. It’s a time to look forward to drying your washing on the line, spending more time outside and letting that vitamin D do its thing.
To help you get ready for some spring adventures, it’s a good idea to get a head start on your garden. There can be a lot of work to do to get it in shape for spring after months of cold, wet weather, so why not start now?

Start with a clear-out
Winter can leave your garden looking a little worse for wear. There’s likely to be debris, leaves and other clutter that needs to be taken care of. Having a little garden clear out is a great way to help get your garden looking back to normal and shouldn’t take too long. Use it as an opportunity to inspect your garden and make a note of any further jobs that need doing, such as painting the fence or fixing anything that’s broken.
Tackle your spring-cleaning jobs
While spring cleaning involves a lot of work inside your home, it can also mean a lot of work for the outside too. Some of the big jobs you want to focus on include jet washing your patio, decking and your outdoor furniture, as well as your home’s exterior.
Winter can cause a lot of issues around the outside of your home, including your guttering.
A professional service like Gutter Boy Cleaning can help you clear up your guttering and prevent damage and flooding that could impact your home. You will also want to inspect your roof and windows and doors to make sure everything is intact after being faced with winter weather.
Repair your lawn
If your lawn is looking a little neglected after the winter, you’re not alone. Harsh winter weather can leave your lawn looking far from fresh, but the good news is that you’ve got plenty of time to put things right. You can start repairing your lawn by re-seeding it and making it level, or even by replacing some of your damaged turf. With a little TLC, trims and treatments, your lawn will be luscious and green again ready to enjoy as the weather gets warmer.
Give your plants and flowers some TLC
If your flowers and greenery are also looking a little tired, now is the perfect time to bring them back to life. Remove the plants that are beyond saving and focus on what’s left to get your garden looking healthy again. This is also an opportunity to buy some new plants and flowers and get them ready to thrive in the warmer weather.
Spending some time getting your garden spring-ready will pay off when the warmer weather hits and improve your home’s exterior. It’s better to get ahead now so that the big jobs are done so that by the time you’re ready to start enjoying your outdoor space, everything will already be done. Get the gloves on and get ready to transform your garden in time for spring.
