A Guide to Spring Time Garden Maintenance


It won’t be long before the harsh UK winter disappears and the first rays of sunshine signal the arrival of spring, and this is the ideal time to get the gardening tools out of the shed and prepare the garden for the arrival of summer. If you are looking forward to getting your hands dirty again, here are some tips on springtime garden maintenance.

Mulch the Flower Beds

This is the ideal time to mulch some decent compost into your flower beds, which will really help the spring flowers to bloom. You can also plant some hardy vegetables such as,

  • Onions
  • Carrots
  • Potatoes
  • Lettuce

Cut the Grass

The very first cut of the year should be very high, which will give the grass an even look and by spreading some fertiliser, the lawn will turn lush green as the season progresses. If you would like to have some major alterations carried out, there are affordable landscaping services in Andover from an experienced gardener who can design and create the perfect outdoor living area.

Plant Flowers and Shrubs

Now it is time to plant some daffodils and tulips, while snapdragons and pansies will add a touch of early colour. Make sure the last frost has passed, as a single night of sub-zero temperatures will kill them off.

Power wash the patio and clean up the garden in general and prepare yourself for the season of blooming flowers and shrubs, which will transform the garden.
