A Complete Guide to Spring Cleaning Your Garden

A Complete Guide to Spring Cleaning Your Garden

With winter behind us, no doubt you’ve started making plans for spending quality time outdoors. While you may have many things in mind, one thing you should do now is to give your garden spring clean. The start of the warmer season is the perfect time to clean out your garden and keep it looking fresh.

Spring cleaning your garden need not be daunting – if you know how to go about it. To help you out, I’ve compiled a guide of the things you should consider when spring cleaning your garden. Follow this guide, and you’ll face no trouble in cleaning out your garden.

1. Clear out fallen debris and mow your lawn

Over winter, gardens accumulate a lot of fallen leaves, dead twigs and branches and other debris. Start your spring cleaning by clearing out fallen debris from your flower beds, lawns and other areas. As you are going through this, pull out any weed patches and remove all excess thatch from your lawn. When you’re done, give your lawn a good mow down.

2. Prune your trees and shrubs

Before spring sets in, pruning your trees and shrubs will prepare them for better growth. Pruning will also keep your shrubs and trees looking extremely neat and tidy. Gather your pruning tools and give your shrubs and trees a good pruning. Now’s also a great time to trim canopies into shape and clearing out damaged branches and limbs.

3. Weeding and fertilising

The start of spring is the best time to nurture your garden with much-needed nutrients. Grab your weeding tools and pull out weeds from all over your garden. When you’re done pulling out weeds, scatter a good amount of fertiliser all over. The spring showers will break down this fertiliser and fuel flowering and growth.

4. Rearrange your plants

chances are, many of your plants may have overgrown their current pots over the winter. Before spring sets in, rearrange these plants and replant them into larger pots. You may need to do this across your flower beds as well, depending on how much your plants have grown.

5. Hire a garden waste skip bin
