Spring is that time of the year when you witness colorful blooms and new growth on the trees and plants and everything seems fresh and vibrant around. So, if you love gardening, spring is the best time to get your hands into the soil and plant everything that you always dreamt of growing. Here are some spring gardening ideas and tips you can use.
Create A Spot To Enjoy Your Garden
Creating a designated spot to soak up the beauty that surrounds you can be as involved as building a wall to create a small space that’s separated from the rest of your garden, or as simple as placing a few comfortable chairs in front of a water feature or fire pit. Whichever type of retreat you decide to create, make sure it’s comfy.
It’s no secret that being outdoors in the fresh air and sunshine is good for mental health, and working in the garden is good for physical health. This all works out well, because it’s time to get your hands dirty in the garden! It’s time to get out there and take care of the plants currently in your garden and prepare for the upcoming season by pruning, dividing perennials, fertilizing, and prepping garden beds.
Plan For Summer Color
Generally, seeds of most annuals should be started indoors about 6 weeks before your last frost date. If you missed the window of time for starting seeds indoors, fear not! There are plenty of hardy annuals such as zinnias, sunflowers, and marigolds that can or should be planted directly in the ground after any possibility of frost has passed.
Going vertical adds a unique touch to gardens of any size. Gardeners are often daunted by the thought of vines because they have a reputation for being messy and growing out of control, but with proper care and attention, flowering vines can be a beautiful addition to your garden without causing grief.
Add A Garden Gate
A garden gate makes such a wonderful addition to any outdoor space, adding a decorative element of intrigue. Take a walk through your yard to make note of any spots where you can possibly add a garden gate. You can use a garden gate to create a partition between two areas of your garden. Or maybe there’s a small corner of your garden dedicated to relaxation—a garden gate would be a lovely way to create a moment of pause before entering that space. If you already have a garden gate that you’d like to modify, think about ways to improve its aesthetic.
Just Add Water
Listening to the soothing sounds of water is as mesmerizing to the ears as watching fire is mesmerizing to the eyes. Adding a fountain or water feature to your garden is a wonderful way to create a soothing vibe.
These are some smart and beautiful spring gardening ideas and tips.
