Preparing Your Garden for Spring: Top 10 Tips

Spring is just around the corner, and it’s the perfect time to start preparing your garden for the vibrant season ahead. At BNS, we understand the importance of having a beautiful and well-maintained outdoor space.   

Here are our top 10 tips to help you get your garden ready for spring.

1. Clear Away Winter Debris

Kickstart your garden revitalisation by removing debris accumulated over winter. This includes dead leaves, branches, and any clutter that might hinder the growth of new plants. This process not only promotes a neat appearance but also encourages fresh shoots and blooms.  

2. Prune Trees and Shrubs

Pruning is a crucial aspect of garden care, fostering healthy growth and preserving the aesthetic appeal of trees and shrubs. Trim dead or damaged branches and cut back overgrown areas to stimulate new growth. Regular pruning enhances the overall vitality of your garden.  

3. Inspect and Repair Fencing

Winter weather can impact the durability of your fencing. When preparing your garden for spring, conduct a thorough inspection for damage or loose panels. Prompt repairs are essential to maintain the security and visual integrity of your garden.  

4. Clean and Repair Patios

Patios often gather moss and grime during winter. Employ pressure washing to effectively clean the surface, revealing the original beauty of your patio. This not only enhances aesthetics but also ensures a safe and inviting outdoor space.  

5. Plan Your Planting

Embrace the spring season by introducing new plants to your garden. When planning, consider sunlight and soil conditions to maximise the success of your plantings. This proactive approach ensures a vibrant and thriving garden.  

6. Inspect and Repair Garden Structures

Beyond plants, garden structures play a crucial role in the overall appeal. Check trellises, garden arches, sheds, and other structures for damage. Timely repairs contribute to a well-maintained and harmonious garden environment.  

7. Gutter Cleaning and Repairs

Protect your garden and home from potential water damage by ensuring gutters are free from debris. Regular cleaning and repairs are essential maintenance tasks that safeguard your property during spring rains.  

8. Install Outdoor Lighting

With longer, warmer days approaching, consider installing outdoor lighting to enhance your garden’s ambiance. Well-placed lighting not only provides aesthetic appeal but also extends the enjoyment of your outdoor space into the evening.  

9. Lawn Care

Spring is the opportune time to give your lawn the attention it deserves. Tasks such as mowing, aerating, and fertilising contribute to a lush, healthy lawn that enhances the overall beauty of your garden.  

10. Create a Garden Maintenance Plan

Formulating a garden maintenance plan is a proactive step towards year-round garden excellence. Schedule tasks, allocate resources, and set goals to ensure that your garden remains in prime condition.
