With the winter days starting to fade behind you it is time to start looking forward to the spring and summer months. Time to start welcoming in the warmer weather and being able to enjoy more time outside and your garden. Chances are however the winter has taken its toll on your neglected garden and it will need a bit of TLC to get it ready for all to enjoy when the days start to warm up. So, here are some ways in which you can get your garden ready for summer. 

Tidy up your garden

Before you are able to move on to any major jobs a good spring clean is always the best place to start. The winter winds will have no doubt left leaves and debris strewn across your garden so now is the time to get to work picking up all the unsightly leaves and touching up flower beds that have seen better days. It is a simple task but one that makes a big difference to the look and feel of your garden. 

Fix up the flooring

After the winter your patio may be looking a little worse for wear. It is not uncommon for a few cracks to appear as a result of the colder temperatures so be sure to keep on top of them and fill them in. This will not only improve the aesthetics of your garden but help keep it safer too. Alternatively, if you have decking then no doubt the winter has taken its toll there too. Spend a bit of time sprucing up your decking, clearing away debris, and giving it another coat of fresh decking paint where required. 

Prime your pool 

It may not be time to start diving into your pool yet but now is the perfect time to start prepping it for that first day of pool season. Hopefully, your pool will have been kept covered through the winter but even covered pools will need some maintenance before they are safe to be used again. Your pool will need a good clean and considerable attention given to the chlorine levels. If you are not as au fait as you need to be with the ins and outs of pool care then call upon the professionals to ensure your pool is clean and safe for use. 

Deep clean the BBQ

Barbeques are synonymous with the summer and are universally enjoyed as the days start to heat up. Whether you use your BBQ all year round or just in the summer it will always benefit from a deep clean. What is more, there is nothing worse than opening up your BBQ ready to grill those juicy burgers to find it left in a state from its last use. 

Before you commence your clean set it on a high heat and let it run for about 10 minutes. This nifty trick makes it easier to scrape off any gunk that has been left behind. Once done allow everything to cool down completely before removing grates, burners, and drip trays to give them a thorough soak and wash.
