Spring cleaning is not just limited to indoors! Maintaining your garden is also a big part of home ownership. After all, the exterior of your home is the first thing people see. Create an inviting aesthetic by putting a little extra effort into your yard work this summer. A few small gestures can go a long way. Plus, many people find gardening relaxing. Here are a few tips to spruce up your garden this summer:
- Prune rose bushes and hydrangeas so that new flowers can bloom healthily.
- Make sure to fertilize shrubs so they can grow tall and strong.
- Update flower beds and boxes by tilling soil, adding compost and choosing summer flowers.
- Tidy around your garden by removing stray sticks, leaves and any dead grass or flowers.
- Create a compost area if you don’t have one already.
- Plant seasonal herbs and vegetables, like tomatoes and basil, to take your dinners to a new level with fresh ingredients! Caprese salad anyone?
