Summer Gardening Tips and the Tools You’ll Need

When the sun comes out, there’s no better time than to attend to your overgrown garden and make it ready for those evening barbecues and gatherings. By keeping on top of your greenery, you can spend time in the great outdoors feeling relaxed and refreshed. After all, your garden is an extension of your home and needs TLC every now and again too.

There are many things that you might need to do in your garden, such as tree removal, lawn mowing and tree stump removal, but it’s not always easy to do them without the right tools. Here are our top gardening tips that will get your garden summer ready:

Trim your hedges and your edges

Trim your hedges and get them in shape for that summer gathering with a hedge trimmer. They come in different types, such as electric, petrol or a long reach device that can help you get to hard to reach places. With prices from as little as £15 a day to £66 for a week, there really is no excuse to let those hedges get out of control.

It can be difficult to reach grass and plants that are low down in your garden, but tidying them up with a strimmer can make all the difference.

Clean the patio

Summer is the time to make your outside space as clean as the inside of your home. Pressure washers are a fantastic tool for getting patios and concrete looking as good as new, and nowadays can be rented at a reasonable cost.

Mow the grass

It might sound like a simple tip, but mowing the grass can make all the difference when it comes to how your garden looks. Long, straggly grass can make an outside space look uncared for and uninviting to visitors.

 

Turn your garden waste into compost

When all the work in the garden has been done and you’re left with twigs and branches all over the garden, it can be tricky to know what to do with them. Wood chippers don’t just help to reduce your garden waste to a more manageable size, but they also help save you money by creating compost. Shredders come in a wide range of sizes and are suitable for all sizes of garden.

Don’t get stumped
