Are you a gardening person? Do you enjoy being a green thumb, and getting your knees covered in soil after throwing out flower beds for hours on end? Maybe the kids like to make a mess and you want to put that energy to better use in the outside world, creating a haven for them to enjoy? Well now that summer is here, you’ve got a better chance than ever to make these plans a reality!
Seeing as we’re experiencing nothing but blue skies and the sun looking down on this currently, now would be a good time for you to get out in the garden and make some changes and/or a bit of maintenance you couldn’t spot when the clouds were overhead and the winter was clogging up your airways! So here’s a couple of ideas for what to do with you garden now that summer is in full swing.

Weed with Abandon!
During the summer, weeds are going to spring out of the ground in numerous numbers and with relative ease. Seeing as you’ve been turning over the soil and fertilising a plenty during the spring, there’s going to be some perfect conditions for those nasty critters to start invading your beautiful space. Get the right products on hand and have a pair of gloves always ready to go in the shed.
Spot the Gaps
When the sun is directly overhead, and you’re out in the garden with a hat on and the hose out to make sure none of your plants suffer, you’re going to be in a good position to spot any gaps in your flower beds, rock garden, tree tops, and all the short or browning areas on your lawn. And whilst LazyLawn can give you a hand with the latter option, you might have to sort out the former options yourself!
Make a note of where everything is thinning and buy up some new plants to fill the gaps, or replace your rocks for a better formation that really brings the garden together. Get them out of the way now and have the time in the afternoon to actually get outside and enjoy the heatwave we’re in!
Grow Some Vegetables
A vegetable garden is one of the best things you could have on hand for the4 summer, seeing as you’re going to have more time to invite friends and family around to enjoy home cooked meals with you. So now’s the time to set up some plant pots with edible flowers and spices to grow in, and to make sure you’ve got some plants to go in the ground that absolutely love the warm conditions we’re having. Have a taste of the exotic in your own back garden, instead of ordering another Chinese!
Take advantage of all this amazing weather we’re having by being productive with it; your garden is going to thank you, and so are your kids due to delicious food!
