How beautiful has the weather been of late? We have had some really lovely sunny days and its been lovely. We have been getting out in our garden more often and we have all loved it.
In the warmer months I enjoy gardening, although I would definitely call myself a beginner. I would love to share some of my simple tips with you to keep your garden well kept and looking tidy with ease.
Our garden is quite big so takes a lot of looking after. It can be quite a big job especially after the winter months.
I like to make sure our grass looks tidy first and foremost by keeping it short and trimming the edges all around my garden with a strimmer. Its really quite therapeutic and I love how it looks afterwards.
It is great to fertilise your grass and use weed killer, this makes a huge difference. We did this to our lawn and it made such a big difference to our grass.
I can imagine if you had artificial grass it would make keeping the garden tidy much easier, I think that the grass and how it is kept is the most important part of looking after your garden. It is what you see straight away and what you walk on daily.
If you want to keep your garden looking beautiful throughout the year without having to work to hard on it you can always invest in artificial grass is definitely a great choice, a lot of our friends have chosen artificial grass and it looks great.
Every garden benefits from having a few flowers and pretty shrubs scattered around for a bit of colour and bringing wildlife to the garden too. I think the wildlife flowers bring is one of the loveliest things about having a garden and taking care of it.
When planting your plants and flowers it is important to be gentle with new plants and to be mindful of giving your plants enough space and room to grow.
Soak your roots
I also like to soak the roots of my new plants once I have planted them this really helps with making them comfortable in the new spot in your garden.
Weeding is important
Weeding is so important so don’t be shy and get rid of those weeds.
It is very important that all your plants get enough water especially your new plants.
It is important to have a few simple gardening tools to keep your plants and garden tidy and well kept. I use a rake, hand trowel, a hand fork, pruners, a hoe, pruning saw, shears, lawn mower, strimmer, garden hose pipe.
These tools will help you clear up fallen leaves, level out soil, plant new bulbs and plants, water your garden, and to neaten your garden using your strimmer or pruner. I find all these tools really useful and important to keeping my garden nice and tidy.
Artificial grass also comes in really handy other then using it to lay your lawn. I like to use artificial grass to display my pots and planters. I also like to use it by my glass doors as a rug I think it looks lovely in the summer months.
