3 Ways To Get Your Garden Summer Ready

Summer is fast approaching! Hands up if you’re looking forward to family BBQ’s, the kids splashing in the paddling pool, drinking homemade cocktails, and sunbathing in your garden. Most people can agree that summer is their favourite season, which makes getting your garden summer ready a great way to get in the mood to enjoy the longer days. After all, you don’t want to be slaving away cleaning and tidying when the weather is so nice outside, so instead, take a look at these 3 ways to get your garden summer ready before the weather begins to change.

1 Tidy Up Your Flower Beds

It’s likely that you’ll be spending a lot of time in your garden during the summer, so one of the first things to consider when looking for ways to get your garden summer ready is the tidiness of your outdoor space. Now is the perfect opportunity to dust off your gardening gloves and start planning ahead for the warmer months. Pull up any unwanted plants, weeds, and unsightly objects like heavy rocks, and consider what you could place in your flower beds instead. There are plenty of flowering plants available that are brilliant for creating attractive, wildlife friendly gardens. All you need is a couple of hours to rearrange your flower beds, and you’re good to go.

This is a seriously effective way to get your garden summer ready. If you don’t have a garden, or you find you don’t have a lot of room outside to play with, why not set up your own herb garden? Herb gardens can be grown indoors on your kitchen windowsill and are a brilliant addition to not only the style of your home but also to the types of fresh flavours you can use in your cooking.

2 Deep Clean Your BBQ

If you’re anything like me, you’re a sucker for a good BBQ! Even as a vegetarian, BBQs are still one of my favourite things to do in summer and I’ve found so many amazing vegetarian and vegan alternatives to the traditional BBQ meat. I love having all my friends and family over, watching the kids play in the garden, and relaxing in the sunshine with some good food.

Before all that can happen though, that poor BBQ is likely to need some TLC. To get your garden summer ready, you will probably need to give your BBQ a really deep clean – especially if it has been left outside all year. Make sure to inspect your BBQ well when cleaning it, looking out for any damage or rust that may make it unusable. The last thing you want during a big get together is someone getting ill or injured because your BBQ was in bad shape.

3 Get your garden summer ready by investing in quality garden furniture.

If you already have garden furniture, now’s an excellent time to pop out and give it the once over. You may find that your garden furniture could do with a good scrub, or maybe even a lick of paint or protective varnish before summer really gets into full swing. However, if you are entering summer without any garden furniture, now’s the time to get looking!

There are lots of amazing garden furniture sets available and the prices tend to start from the respectable £100 mark for brand new sets. Of course, you could always try to pick up a bargain on Facebook Marketplace or auction websites like eBay.

Final words of how to get your garden summer ready.

If you love your garden as much as I love mine, it’s always a pleasure to spend time in it, even if that time is spent doing a few preemptively mundane chores. Sorting these 3 things out now will ensure that when summer finally does arrive, your garden will be spick and span and ready for anything.
