With the spring and summer days ahead of us, it is time to head out and prepare your garden. This isn’t simply, but if you plan to spend your days in your safe place outdoors, there’s some work to do. However, with some careful planning and preparations, you can make your garden look gorgeous in just a matter of days.
Here’s what you need to do:
Make a quick Inspection
Before you start doing some real work, all you need to do is walk around your garden and determine its condition. After harsh winters it may take you a while to bring your garden back to life, but if the winter has been mind, it might not require too much effort.
Therefore, we suggest you either take mental notes or write some of the main things that happened during winter and that can include potential rodent damage, snow and ice damage, etc. This will give you an idea of what you should focus on and what you can expect in the winters to come. A quick inspection such as this one might not be obligatory for seasoned gardeners because they already know what’s going on, but the newbies can benefit greatly from this.
Make a plan
As simple as it may sound, making a plan will speed up the process significantly and give you something to follow. You can split the work into several days, or just create a checklist of the things that you can do. For example, buying new flower seeds, sharpening the tools, fixing the watering system could all be on your list.
No matter how you go about this a plan will ensure that you have everything done eventually.
There’s joy to be found when working in your garden, so we suggest you take your time. You don’t want to cram everything into 2 days and feel sore after it for a week. Instead, do a bit each day and when you feel tired, wrap things up. An hour-two per day should be enough to keep your momentum going.
This also depends on the size of your garden. You might need to step up and spend some more time working, or you can find someone else to help you out. Either way, working in your garden should be joyful and not something you need to get done.
