Let’s be honest, when the sunshine is out the last thing we want to do is the gardening. We all have a habit of putting off the gardening until the back garden looks like a tropical jungle. We may have avoided the gardening for a few weeks, but now we have to tackle something akin to the Amazon rainforest. So without further ado, we had best get started.
The first thing to do is to assess the damage. How bad has the lawn become? If you can’t see the grass for the weeds then going straight for the lawn mower won’t return it to its former glory.
The first thing to do is to weed the garden, if you think you’ll have trouble doing all the weeding in one go then it might be worth investing in some tools to give you a hand. There are plenty of weeding gadgets that can help you complete the job with minimal effort and stop you constantly bending over and hurting your back.
Once all the weeds are out its time to get out the lawn mower. If your grass has grown wild then you’ll need to mow it several times, gradually trimming it back. If you immediately cut the grass short then you’ll kill off patches of your lawn. Slowly reduce the height of the grass to get it to the desired height without damaging it.
Once you’ve reclaimed the wilderness you’ll need to keep it looking in good condition. It’s a good idea to use fertilizers to help repair any damage to your lawn. There are several available on the market so it’s a good idea to thoroughly research which one is best for your garden.
With all the rain we get in Britain you might think you’ll never need to water your garden. With the recent heat wave still fresh in our minds we know that occasionally we do get some sunshine. During these times check to see if your garden needs watering. You can tell if it needs watering by poking the soil with a screwdriver, if you’re met with resistance it’s time to water!
Gardening often seems like a chore, but if you get the whole family involved then the job is halved. Then before you know it you’ll be relaxing in the conservatory and admiring your handiwork.
