Clean up

First things first: clean up! Cleaning isn’t the most excited step you will take when refreshing the garden, but it is the most rewarding. You can make a huge difference by getting rid of all those broken plant pots, scattered sticks, falling branches and leaves everywhere. Has your path become much more messy? Than treat it with a cleaning product. So you can enjoy the sun in a neat garden.

While cleaning up you can also remove a lot of old plants. So there will be more room to plant new flowers or flowering plants. A green garden isn’t everything. You need contrast. Colorful flowers are perfect and bring life to the garden. Have you ever thought about buying dutch tulips? No? Than you should really consider it now. The original Dutch tulips are available in a widely spread variety of colors. They are the perfect eye catcher and bring character to your garden.

Try something new

Neatly trimmed grass and some beautiful flowers are amazing to summer proof your garden. But why not go bold this year and try something new? This season provides you lot of opportunities to create a stunning garden. Make a statement and add some rare flowers or give your garden an industrial look. The sky is the limit.

Keep in mind that providing much needed privacy is still the main factor when maintaining a beautiful garden. Try a new fence or create a green wall.

Plan ahead

The end of the spring is the best time to begin summer proofing your garden. It is time to give your plants the attention they so desperately desire. So make a schedule and plan ahead. Which plants come first? And when will you plant some new flowers, vegetables or fruits? Planning means also searching for inspiration. Browsing Pinterest or looking up stuff in Google are great ways to find the inspiration you needed.

Early summer might be a little bit too cold for outside dinners, but it’s not too early to check and clean your outside furniture. This means you have only one task left when the heat finally arrives: enjoying your garden to the fullest.

Do you want to buy new outdoor furniture? Let yourself be advised by an expert. This way you can be sure you make the right decisions.
