Don’t let the recent run of cold temperatures fool you. Spring is just around the corner and that means warm weather and flowers blooming. Are you going to be planting a garden for the first time this year? Maybe you’re returning to the garden you have flourishing last year. Either way, now is the time to get you garden ready for spring. Here’s what you need to do:
Take the time to check out all corners of your garden. Start with the planters. Are they still in good shape? What about your flowerbeds? Is the wood splintering or bowing? There could also be some weed overgrowth that has taken over. It’s time to repair and pull up those weeds. Once that is done, you can take stock of your soil. A home PH test is what you need to make sure your soil is ready for planting.
Inspect Your Tools
You’ll want to pool out your tools from their storage spot to see what kind of condition they’re in. If they’ve rusted over, then it might be time to replace them. If they’re still in good shape, then you might consider taking them down to the local hardware store for some sharpening. You should also inspect your lawnmower and get those blades sharpened as well.
As you inspect your garden area and soil, you might come across some uninvited pests. These need to be taken out with as much thoroughness as you took care of the weeds. You don’t want bugs getting comfortable, or worse, starting a “family.”
After everything has been cleared and fixed, you should lay down a bed of fertilizer. Ideally, this should happen a week or two before you start planting. This will give the soil a chance to absorb the nutrients.
Along with the twigs, palm fronds and other yard waste, there could be some debris items you’ll want to get rid of. This could be anything from a beat up chaise lounge to a kid’s swing set.
