Spring Garden Tips – Top 10 Spring Garden Ideas

1. Your Lawn Let’s start with your lawn (of course)! If you already have an artificial lawn, give it a good clean with soapy water, a firm bristled brush and then rinse with a hosepipe. If you have a natural lawn, give it a mow (if needed) and trim the edges. You should also think about putting lawn feed down for any patchy areas. If you have lots of patchy areas, now might be the time to consider getting a free quotation for an artificial lawn. 2. Spring Cleaning Clean out and wash your greenhouse.

Clean up flower beds ready for planting and remove and replace any protective mulch ready for your spring daffodils, snowdrops and other perennials. 3. Furniture & Ornaments Bring out your garden furniture and any ornaments and give them a clean too. Also consider waterproof coverings for furniture. We all know how unpredictable the British weather is! 4. Pruning Prune trees and shrubs. This helps younger plants to establish a good shape.

Looking for a Low Maintenance Lawn? Ecograss Has the Solution

With busy lifestyles now the norm, a low maintenance lawn could be the perfect answer. Artificial grass is low maintenance, but it still gives you a relaxing space to entertain friends/family and enjoy your downtime. What About the Weather? With British weather so unpredictable, a perfect looking natural lawn is hard to achieve and takes time and effort. Spring showers and summer sunshine make a natural lawn muddy in some areas, often with dark brown patches and a propensity for weeds. If this is what you are looking for then this is fine! But f you are looking for a low maintenance lawn that looks great all year round, get in touch with Ecograss today for a free, no obligation quotation. Artificial Grass Maintenance Ecograss artificial lawns are environmentally friendly and perfect for pets. No mowing, watering, feeding, weeding or re-turfing is required. An artificial lawn has excellent drainage and is durable throughout the seasons. Even in the coldest winter, artificial grass remains a beautiful shade of green – complimenting all of your autumnal garden colours and winter flowering plants. Wildlife Care It is also worth considering that not everybody wants the wildlife associated with a natural lawn (at least not the creepy crawly kind that normally lurk in natural grass!). An artificial lawn is completely safe for animals and insects – in fact, it is more environmentally friendly due to the lack of chemicals used/required (lawn feed, slug pellets etc.). You can also attract more wildlife to your garden by installing a bird feeder or two, to help birds through the winter months as well as attract many different species.
