The quick clean up and wash down

The retched cold and miserable winter will have undoubtedly left your garden in a bit of a state I’m sure. But not to worry. The first stage is to have a quick clean up.

1) Get rid of any junk, old garden furniture, broken pots. Rake up any leaves and twigs lying around.

2)  Grab yourself a lawn edger and edge away recreating that neat boundary you had beGarden rakefore.

3) Clean any wooden decking, stone patios and paved pathways the quick, easy and cheapest way. One pressure washer with plain water and blast away.

Already your garden will start to take shape.

Pick up some great quality decently priced garden items below.

Save money this year, Don’t be the big spender.

Your garden is a place of luxury which should come at no extra cost. There are plenty of ways to save money in your garden and here are a few tips.

Two simple words which are going to save you money. Water but. Composter

Your drains are going to collect water right? and your plants are thirsty?

Yup you got it. 2 + 2 = 6. Ok maybe not but i’m sure you’ve got the idea.

Placing one or two inexpensive, nice looking water butts under your drain pipes will help you become the environmental super hero that everyone is looking for. Wuhoo.

don’t forget you can camouflage your water buts as well so that they blend into your garden.

Next money saving tip is your composter. You want a nutrient rich mulch right? Well make it yourself and for free. Just add leaves, grass cuttings and pruned branches and there you have it.

Stop being a pest

Two garden nightmares that are far too common to be ignored.

Pests and weeds.

Remember you don’t need to remove pests from your garden yourself. Let nature do the job for you.

    Awesome summer garden tips! My mother loves making her garden every year. I’ll definitely send her this article since I’m sure she can use it and learn some useful things. Do you recommend only using the water buts on flowers? Or can you use them for a vegetable garden as well?

    Wow, I love working outdoors and I love my garden. I really never thought to provide something to attract the birds to let them get rid of the pests! I really can’t believe I didn’t think about this, so am glad I found your post. I am going to let nature start taking care of things and then I shouldn’t need the pest control which is not great to do anyway with pets.
