Start with a clear out

It’s surprising how quickly your garden can become a dumping ground when it’s not being used every day. If you notice that there’s clutter that shouldn’t be there or things are looking less than pristine, it’s time to tackle it. Get rid of any rubbish or debris that might have landed in your backyard and get rid of any times that are looking past their best. A quick declutter will instantly give your garden a boost ready for you to tackle the rest of your garden maintenance. You’ll also want to have a good de-weeding session to make sure all your soil is ready for any flowers or plants you might want to add this year.
Give your lawn some TLC

Your lawn can suffer in the heat, and even a mild winter can leave your lawn looking less than fresh by the time summer arrives. If your lawn needs some TLC, start looking to remedy the damage and focus on nourishing your lawn. If you don’t have time to water and maintain your lawn yourself, Garden-R could help.

Fix your fencing

Check your fencing thoroughly for any holes or gaps that could help any unwanted visitors end up in your yard. Snakes and rodents can fit through the smallest gaps, so check for any signs of damage carefully. With a lick of paint and essential maintenance, you can soon get your garden fence looking great again.
