How to get your garden ready for summer

Each new season brings a new opportunity to transform your garden into a space that you can be proud of. As you will spend the most time outside during the summer months, making small changes can transform your outside space into an area that is perfect for entertaining. Here are a few ideas to inspire you to get your garden ready for the summer season. 

Add planters 

Add a splash of colour to your summer space by filling some planters with bright flowers. Choose a variety of colours, shapes and sizes for your plants to make your garden stand out. Buying flowers that also survive during the winter months can help make the transition to the colder time of year that bit easier. Echinacea, pansies and primroses are particularly versatile, enabling you to get the most out of your money. 

Upgrade your decking and patio 

Eliminate any signs of winter by getting rid of any weeds that linger in your patio paving flags and the green tinge from the decking. Using a stain protector to treat the wood can enable it to retain its prime condition and sanding the decking can equally give it a new lease of life. Alternatively, if you don’t already have decking or a patio where you can relax, adding something more than just green space may be a good option this summer. 

Garden shed storage 

Sick of your tools being scattered all over the garden? You may find yourself discovering a rusty pitchfork during the winter that you thought had got lost during your garden clear out. Consider building a shed to store all your garden essentials as this will prevent loss of your garden tools as well as protecting against the chances of theft.
