Some Springtime Ideas for the Garden

Gardens come to life in the summer, but if you want to make the most of your garden this year, you need to start planning and cultivating it in the spring – especially if you intend to plant annuals. Read on to find out about some key elements to attend to in your garden this spring.  

Garden Spot 

Creating a beautiful garden is one thing; creating a beautiful garden you can enjoy is quite another. When you have renewed your planters, treated your trees, and installed new features, it’s time to think about where you can sit to enjoy the garden or invite friends for a gathering. 

A garden spot could mean a patio area somewhere in the garden; it could also mean a garden room away from the house that gives you an alternative perspective. If you’re feeling adventurous, why not cultivate a moon garden that can be enjoyed during twilight or at night?

Summer Colours 

Make your garden flourish this summer with a range of colourful annuals. Unlike perennials, annuals only last for a season, so you need to plant them after all signs of frost have passed. Some popular perennials include pansies, marigolds, and sunflowers, to brighten the garden. 

Annuals are a predictable and creative way to enjoy your garden during the summer season. Annuals can be planted in combination with other bulbs and perennials to create an abundance of colour in the garden. Enjoy your summer garden more by getting creatives with annuals.

Tree Maintenance 

If you have problem trees in your garden, springtime is an excellent opportunity to call a professional arborist service like to have trees cut back or removed. Problem trees can lead to drainage issues; they can also damage foundations. 

If you have problem trees, it is best to get a professional opinion and them and consider having them removed. When you discuss the project with an arborist, you can ask them about the best trees to plant for your garden and where you should plant them. Tree placing is also important.

Wildlife Spaces 

A garden isn’t much without the wildlife to go with it. Gardens create little ecosystems that support the health and vitality of insects, plants, and animal species. Part of the challenge of creating a successful garden is integrating enough supporting elements for insects and plants. 

If you want your garden to thrive, you should consider installing a nest box to attract local birds – birds are useful for spreading seeds and pollinating. Creating a clean water source is also a good way to attract small animals. Create new habitats by planting some new trees and shrubs.   

Vertical Thinking 

If you are limited in space in your garden, it doesn’t mean you can’t cultivate a beautiful garden for the summer. Thinking vertically is a popular way to create gardens in limited space. Vertical gardens tend to include flowering vines and plats with upward mobility – tomato plants also work well. Make use of walls, fences, and overheads to help a small garden come to life this summer.
