Preparing a garden or yard for a warm season is quite essential thing, since you are going to work and have a rest here, and after winter there are a lot of things to do. In order to prepare your outdoor area for barbeque parties, children leisure, and just admiring sunsets during an evening tea you will have to take some measures that include both cleaning and decorating everything around.
First thing to do is cleaning, of course. Take away unnecessary tree branches, old leaves, and all the things that can be present in your garden after winter time. Thus, you will have a clean territory to go on working. Check also your irrigation system. If it has any damages, they must be fixed before you start the season.
Now look at your outdoor area and think what lacks there. Perhaps, you will need some walkways, paver or retaining walls. These are the things that will make your place neater. Pavers will help you level your sloping garden, and walls can prevent mud and ground from getting to the places where they are not needed. And, of course, decoration means much, since this way you will create a special atmosphere for your garden. Set fragrant flowers and spring flowering shrubs to provide your area with a pleasant smell, arrange interesting flowerbeds, paint your deck and fence, trim the lawn. Spend just some time for working in spring and apply simple spring landscaping ideas, and you will see that it will be easier for you to maintain your garden in a good condition during the whole summer.
