Spring Cleaning Tips for the Home Garden

If the presence of birds chirping and sunnier days are any indication, many can expect an early spring this year. This can only mean one thing, it’s time to start getting things cleaned up and in order for the new season. That’s right, its spring cleaning time!

Although maintaining your home garden is really a year-round chore, spring time is when you really have to kick things into high gear. Spring brings new life and new blooms. Following the below tips will make sure your garden is in tip-top shape and ready to welcome in the new season!

  1. Set up a compost station
Composting your garden is one of the best things you can do for your garden’s overall health. If you’ve never composted before, the beginning of spring is the best time to start. The best compost is your own organic creation from food and yard waste. All you need is space, natural air, fresh materials and a large bin to hold everything. Your garden will thank you, trust us!

 

  1. Purchase new seeds
This is the fun part. Before the regular season really gets going, you should spend time browsing and deciding which seeds you want to plant this year. Purchasing them early will give you time to start growing your seedlings indoors in preparation for your outside garden.

 

  1. Nurture your soil
Winters can be harsh, that’s why it’s important to make sure your soil gets the appropriate TLC to ensure a viable living situation for your spring time growth. Breaking up the soil after a frozen winter is your best bet for making your life easier once consistently warm weather hits.

 

  1. Set up shop
Getting all of your gardening tools ready will help you stay accountable when gardening time comes around. Whether it’s a corner of your garage, section of your patio or in a shed, give yourself ample space to store essentials.

 

  1. Pruning time
Don’t allow disease to ruin your garden. Prune all trees, plant and shrubs before the warm weather brings new growth.
