Now the weather is getting warmer, and more people are spending time outside, it is only natural to want to make sure your outdoor space is somewhere you can relax and enjoy for as long as the weather allows.
Over the cold winter months, it is likely that your garden will have built up some dirt and debris from the elements and the local environment, which you will need to clear out before you sing your garden during the summer.
This post looks at ways you can invest in your garden to make it more enjoyable and relaxing.
Pressure WashThe best and easiest way to remove grime from your home's exterior walls and flooring is to get them power washed. It is recommended to do this annually for best results. A power washer uses pressurised water jets to lift dirt and grime from walls, floors, furniture, garden structures, and more. It also reduces the need to use chemicals and cleaning products and is effective against moss and mildew that might be taking root on paving or concrete areas too. Plus, the results will be long-lasting, meaning you don't need to do it frequently to keep your garden looking good.
Clean The DrainsThe last thing you want is for your drains to be causing a stink and ruining all of your hard work. Getting your Blocked Drains cleared so they're free from anything blocking them and smell clean and fresh help you to enjoy spending time outdoors without everyone wrinkling up their noses at the stench of your drains and putting a damper on your summer.
Remove WeedsWeeds are persistent and can become unruly and unsightly if left. Weeds can come through the tiniest cracks and really detract from your paving, flowerbeds and even the exterior of your property if not taken care of. You can use chemical products to help you get rid of weeds or homemade concoctions, including; using boiling water poured directly on weeds to kill them (this may need to be repeated frequently), using cornmeal or polenta, starving them of light or using vinegar to dehydrate them.
Fresh Coat of PaintAdding a fresh coat of paint to your walls and fencing can help instantly brighten up the space and give it a new lease of life. Over time, from the elements, your paintwork or woodwork can facade and look old before its time. Before you start to get out and enjoy your garden, why not give your walls and fences a good clean, remove any peeling paint if required and then freshen them up? You will notice the difference instantly.
Clean, Clean, CleanLastly, get it all clean and tidy. Whether you have used a pressure washer or not, you need to remove rubbish and broken items and get everywhere clean and tidy. Be it your windows, cleaning any sheds or external storage, tidying up your lawn, and cleaning your ornaments, decking or furniture too. Not only will it look better, but it will give you a fresh place to start this summer off.
ConclusionPreparing your garden for the summer means doing the prep work before doing anything else. This means giving your garden a good clean and tidy to help give you a fresh base to start from.
