Owning your own home involves a lot of little jobs. This is more the case if you have a garden. Unfortunately, your garden can often get put to one side while you take care of the rest of your home. This makes sense, as you probably spend way more time in your actual house than you do in your garden.

This doesn’t mean that you should neglect your garden altogether though, especially as the weather gets warmer and you know you’re going to want to spend so much more time out there. Whether that’s for just relaxing on your own or entertaining friends and family, no one wants to sit in a shabby garden. Here are just a few jobs you should tick off your garden to-do list right now.

  1. Mowing the Lawn 

This is one of the most obvious but easiest to put off. It’s so easy to put off cutting your grass in winter as it grows so much slower and you aren’t in the garden as much. However, it’s only going to get worse as the weather gets warmer, so doing it as soon as you can when the time comes is vital.

When you do it, you’ll see how much of a difference it can make to how your garden looks and will be grateful you did it sooner rather than later. 

  1. Repainting the Fence 

Over the years, and sometimes even in just one year, your fence takes on a lot of damage from the weather. Most of the time, it can take it, but you’ll never make it through the years without having the paint fade on it.

Repainting your fence can make such a difference to the way your garden looks and feels. This can spruce things up and make it summer ready.

If you’re sick of having to do this now and again, there are other fence options out there that are much less maintenance. All you need to do is find the right Fence & Deck Depot for you and let them know what you’re looking for.

  1. Planting Flowers and Plants 

Depending on where you live, it’s most likely the fact that during the winter months, your plants and flowers die off. Though most of these will come back when summer comes, it’s natural to want to cheat a little by buying new ones.

This gives your garden a much fuller look in the summer and certainly makes it look much more presentable. Even something as simple as sowing seeds in the spring can provide a good number of flowers and plants come summer.

Looking after your garden often gets forgotten about during the colder months but people regret it when the warmer weather comes. This is because they want to spend more time out there and have now just noticed how neglected it looks.

However, just doing these three things can truly turn things around and make your garden summer ready.
