Summer will be here soon and your garden might be in need of some love as during winter it usually stays ignored. It stays covered up, with all the furniture tucked in the garage and no signs of any greenery. But now it is the time to bring out the furniture, trim the grass and plant a few greens. Here are some tips to get your garden ready for summer:
1. Paint The Fence

After a long gap of winter and effects of weather your fence might have become a little dull. So, it is a good idea to give it a fresh coat of paint for breathing in a new life into your garden.
2. Pull Out The Weeds

As soon as the spring season begins weeds start to grow and in a month they litter the whole garden. So, before they grow too big, get out there and pull them all out.
3. Get The Lawn in Shape

Now that the lawn is probably going to start growing like crazy again when all the sunshine comes back again, it is time to do any remedial work to it, fix bald parts, fix the edges and generally get it ready for use through the summer.
4. Visit The Nursery to Get Some Plants

Just when the summer begins, it is the ideal time to go to the nursery and bring flowers, herbs and vegetables that you can enjoy in your garden. You can grow cherry tomatoes, basil, cilantro, mint and a lot of flowering plants.
5. Get Some New Furniture

If your garden is in need of some seating or a table that you have been wanting to get for summer then it is the right time to visit the store and purchase them. Make sure to invest in weather resistant furniture so that it doesn’t get spoiled in April rains and the June Sun.
6. Take Out The Grill

Outdoor cookouts are loved by many during summer season so take the grill out of your garage and get it at the ready. And if you don’t have one, then visit a few different stores and choose a grill that suits your requirements the best.
7. Provide Shade for Warm Days
8. Install Lighting Fixtures

Just like furniture, lighting is also really important for your garden. You can get solar lamps to save energy or think of a little fancy solution such as string lights.
9. Plant Evening-Scented Flowers

Most of us love to spend time in our garden later in the evening during the summer season. So, you can create a relaxing ambiance in your garden with plants that release pleasant scents at night.
10. Revamp The Garden Path

Sometimes a garden walkway becomes worn out and gets covered with moss too. So, give it a deep cleaning with water and scrubbers. Also paint it if necessary. If any bricks have broken replace them with new ones.
