Top Tips For Keeping Your Garden Maintained

We all keep on top of the maintenance with our homes but how many of us remember that our gardens and outside living spaces are just as important. If we leave them they end up looking like a jungle but if we nurture them they become an extension of our home and provide us with a perfect relaxation zone. There are certain things that you can do to keep your garden maintained and looking it’s best throughout the whole year, let have a look at some of the things you can do season by season.


Although people tend to think that the start of Fall is the time to move away from any sort of garden maintenance there are still plenty of jobs that you can be getting on with. This could be the perfect time of the year to start looking over bigger jobs such as installing and maintaining pergolas or adding and repairing walkways, driveways and slabbed seating areas as the season changes it’s cooler allowing you to carry our more strenuous jobs. Of course, you don’t have to take of this yourself and you could always look into professionals such as ProActive Landscaping, they are able to help with all your needs throughout the year.


There won’t be much that you want to be carrying out in the winter however, you should still be making sure that you have the steps in place to be able to clear pathways and driveways, remove and ice problems or build up and look into the condition of your irrigation. It may be worth having a look at stocking up with salt and making sure you have an adequate spade. Then you are able to move onto festive jobs such as installing Christmas lights and enjoying the Holiday Season if you’re expecting snow why not try out a bit of tobogganing.


Spring is seen as the ultimate time to start your garden clear up and to start any planned projects that you’ve been thinking about over the winter months. You can pretty much get on with anything and everything in the spring months as long as you are lucky enough to avoid the April showers. You should start with the basics and clear and debris, cut back anything that needs it and do an overall check of the condition of all the items in the garden, this means you are able to prioritize what needs to be done before the summer months arrive.


You may want to just sit back and relax in the summer months and who can blame you! It’s a good idea to make sure you are keeping on top of your garden even if it just by pottering around. The summer months are a good time to watch your garden flourish with green grass, bright colored plants, and well lit evening walkways and seating areas. Just be careful not to water your lawn or plants in the height of the day as believe it or not they can actually burn.
