It may not feel like summer is around the corner, especially as the Beast from the East keeps making an appearance, but it will be here before you know it, and you need to make sure your garden is prepared. One of the biggest mistakes you can make is to overcomplicate things, giving yourself an elaborate garden to manage over the summer months. You will spend more time maintaining your garden than enjoying it. With that in mind, read on to discover some useful tips for simplifying your garden for an enjoyable summer…

Purchase the right tools for your garden – It is not all about the design and appearance of your garden; it is about having the right tools to keep it this way. Having a hose stand so you always have a hose nearby is a good start. Aside from this, you may want to consider buying a mini rake, as this is a great time saver, as well as a blower, which is perfect for quick clean-ups and small jobs. [Read more…]

Getting Your Yard Ready For Spring On A Budget

I don’t know about you, but I cannot wait for all of this cold, snowy weather to leave for good. To me, March screams the beginning of spring to me. The birds get more active, buds start forming, and this means that it is time to buckle down and start thinking about what your yard needs for spring. A lot of people spend hundreds and thousands of dollars on yard care, but if you do it the right way, you can save money and do it on a budget.

Do what you can yourself

If you have the ability to do some of the work yourself, go for it! You will save money this way by avoiding costly labor charges. Keep in mind that if you cannot do it yourself, hiring a professional (see more below) is your best bet, in order to save yourself time, money, and energy. I highly recommend doing some of the landscaping yourself, though. Make a list of everything you need to do with your yard and figure out what you can do on your own. If you need to have a tree cut down, hire a professional. If you do not know where to start on lawn fertilization, hire a professional. But, there are things you can definitely do like spreading mulch, cutting your grass, or even planting flowers. Save yourself money and figure out what you can do yourself and what you need to hire out. [Read more…]
