As the weather becomes warmer, you may be feeling the first touch of spring after months of chilling winter, or the mere weeks of winter here in Florida. Spring is the favorite season of many because this is the time when kids can frolic around and you can live your days betters besides snuggling up under a warm blanket. But that’s not all that you can do during spring. If you love gardening, perhaps spring is the best time to give your garden a nice makeover after harsh winters.
Here are a few tips to create the perfect garden this spring:
Clean up the yard
It’s natural for your yard to be covered with leaves and branches. Weed-growth is another issue that you may face if your garden is left alone for a long time. The first step in making a spring garden is to clear out the debris from the yard. Sharpen your garden tools and get started from a corner. Tidy up the flower beds and lawn so that you can start working on the soil.
Revive your soil profile
After you clean your yard, the next step is to revitalize your soil after the winter dry-spell. Moisture is one of the most important aspects of a good soil profile, so it’s time to add some to your garden soil. Consider using organic manure or compost for making the soil fertile. Adding mulch is also a good gardening practice to prevent weed growth and maintaining soil moisture. Not only will it improve the quality of the soil but also increase the life of your plants.
Consider summer-flowering plants
Now it’s time to start planting. Summer-flowering plants such as gladiolus, lilies and ranunculus are good options to start with. These plants can be planted during the onset of spring for an amazing summer bloom. Plants like snapdragons, pansies, red-buds, lilacs and vegetables are good options for a spring garden. You can browse through options online and visit a nursery in your region for getting fresh saplings of these plants.
Prune old plants
Last but certainly not the least, you need to pay attention to existing plants and shrubs in addition to the new ones. You should consider removing dead and diseased plants and trees and trim down shrubs to make the garden look neat and clean. You should also prune wood that is damaged in the cold after plants resume growth in spring. At the same time, you should also prune trees and shrubs that bloom in spring after they flower. This is surely going to turn your boring garden into an amazing haven for spring.
