How to prepare garden for spring?

Updated: Feb 20, 2022

Autumn and winter are quite difficult for garden trees, shrubs and flowers. The temperature is rater low, frequent precipitation, such as rain or snow, combined with the lack of sun, make the plants look bad and, in addition, they can get sick.

Prevention is better than cure

Remember, that even though the spring garden care is really important and should be taken, it’s way easier to prepare the garden for spring, if you take care of it in early fall. When the weather is starting to get worse, cover all the delicate bushes. Also, remember to use autumn fertilizers for the lawn that will slow down its growth.

How to prepare a garden in spring?

Opening the spring season is a piece of work. First of all, we have to make sure, that all the plants have good conditions for growth and flowering. That’s why all the old flower buds and possible non-fallen leaves should be removed.

Those actions are crucial for your trees and shrubs if you want them to bloom the whole season. If you didn’t coer them for winter, you might also have to cut the most damaged pieces of the plants.

Spring garden work – what about the lawn?

If flowers, trees and shrubs had a tough time in the winter, your lawn passed through a real school of life. The lingering snow and excess water, which often freezes on the grass, made the lawn much weak. There is a risk that after this difficult time, mold will form on it.

That’s why you need to take care of the grass first thing in the spring, when the weather allows it. The full garden care for it covers scarifying, aeration, fertilization, possible planting of grass. It is crucial that those actions are taken skilfully: if not, things might get worse instead of getting better.

All that being said, it’s only fair to mention, that many of those works (i.e. aeration and scarifying) require professional equipment and a bit of knowledge.
