Not sure on how to get your garden looking good this spring? We’ve put together some top tips that require less effort than you might think.

Spring is one of the most exciting times of the year for gardens and we’re already seeing the first signs of it with patches of snowdrops popping up.

Whether you’re looking to sell your house and want to make it more attractive or just fancy getting your hands dirty, we’ve compiled a list of quick and easy ways to prepare your garden for the spring.

Invest in some quality tools

If you’ve opened your shed for the first time this year and noticed your gardening tools are looking a little worse for wear, now’s the best time to invest in some new ones. Not only are shop shelves full of every instrument available, buying them now will encourage you to get started on your garden right away.

If you’re not looking to spend too much on your garden, consider simply cleaning up your tool shed and bringing some life back into your equipment. Oiling hinges and clearing out any rust, sharpening your shears or recovering your spade handle will all help to ensure your tools last another season. And if you are looking to sell your home this spring, a tidy, well-organised shed might just make it look that little bit more appealing.

Clean up your soil

If you’re looking to plant directly into the ground or are making use of old pots, make sure everything is cleaned up and ready to go. Remove any signs of old plants or weeds to make room for your new additions. It’s important to keep your soil as healthy as possible so ensuring weeds are completely uprooted and destroyed is essential for stopping their return.

Even if you’re not looking to plant anything of your own this spring, cutting back current plants, pruning trees and removing unwanted weeds can help keep your garden looking tidy and well-maintained. Make sure you read up on the best time to prune your plants though as some bloom on old wood rather than new.

Freshen up with a lick of paint

Adding a fresh lick of paint to your garden can really help boost its appeal without having the worry of keeping plants alive! Fences, sheds and brick walls can all benefit from a dash of colour, whether you stick to traditional browns and greens or choose something a little more obscure. By making your garden a more attractive place to be, you’ll be more likely to want to spend time within it!

Start growing indoors

Before heading straight out into the garden, some plants may need to start off indoors. Start off with smaller pots and transfer your plants as they become bigger and stronger until they’re ready to go outdoors. Remember, it’s essential to keep them in a well-lit environment but out of direct sunlight.

If you’re not much of a garden person but still want to welcome spring with a dash of colour, consider some indoor plants that’ll help your home looking fresh and floral.
