The harsh British winter is something your garden has to endure year in, year out, and we are fast approaching the time when spring is on the horizon. There’s no better time to tend to the garden that in the spring, and with that in mind, here are a few tips to help make the project a trouble-free experience.
- Hire a Skip – As you probably know, the laws are strict on waste disposal, and by hiring a medium size skip for the weekend, all your waste can be responsibly disposed of. Dead branches, weeds, rocks and anything else you might find, can all be thrown in the skip, which makes clearing up so much easier. If you search for the best skips in Wolverhampton online, they can deliver a medium skip right next to the garden.
- Have the Right tools – You will need spades, clippers or a strimmer, a wheelbarrow and some pruning shears, not to mention a stiff broom, and you should have a few bags of compost and topsoil delivered a few days prior to starting work.
- Pick a Dry Weekend – The last thing you want to do is work on the garden when it is wet. It won’t hurt you, but it will destroy your lawn, and the flower beds will soon become boggy. While the UK weather is unpredictable, try to find a window of sun if at all possible.
With the entire family helping, you should be finished at the end of the day and can spend the Sunday buying plants and flowers to bring some much-needed colour to the garden.
