5 tips to get your garden summer ready
OK so it may not feel like summer is quite here yet but that is good. Good?! Why? Well its good as it gives you chance to work on getting your garden ready for you to enjoy when the sun does make an appearance! So here are our 5 tips for now to get your garden summer ready:-
Tip 1 – Plant out summer bedding
Now is the time to get your summer bedding plants in ready to flower and look gorgeous all summer long
Tip 2 – Tie in climbing and rambling roses
Climbing and rambling roses need help so tie them in now. Our wrought iron garden arches and arbours are a great way of holding your climbing roses in place. They also make a great garden feature too. Here is an example of one:-
Tip 3 – Stake tall or floppy plants
Just as with climbing roses tall plants need help keeping upright so they can grow so use a stick or something else to stick in the ground then tie them up too
Tip 4 – Position summer hanging baskets and containers outside
My favourite part of doing the gardening is putting the baskets and containers out full of flowers. You may be surprised to know that wrought iron manufacturers like us also make planters and hanging basket brackets (like these pictured) and we think they look great.
Tip 5 – Mow the lawn weekly
This is what I call a Marmite one! You either love mowing the lawn and feel its therapeutic OR you just hate the monotony and tedium of it all. Which one are you? Either way the lawn needs to be mown weekly to keep it short and looking good all summer long
So once you have done all that you can sit back, relax on your patio and admire all your hard work whilst you enjoy the view. Maybe some of our wrought iron railings or stainless steel balustrades may just finish it off nicely?
