Bringing your garden back to life after winter

During winter, your garden can become dull and lose its colour as a result of the colder temperatures and severe weather conditions. Gabriel Ash offers a wide range of greenhouses and accessories that will help you to bring your garden back to life after the winter season. There are also a number of steps that you can take to ensure that your garden is lively and attractive for spring.

After the winter season ends, certain parts of your garden, such as your lawn, may have lost their colour. These areas will usually gain their colour back during the spring season, but there are treatments that you can use to help any areas that have been damaged by insects or frost to look lively again.

When using any treatments on areas such as your lawn, you may wish to opt for organic methods or products, such as organic lawn feed, as this will help to keep your garden healthy and will reduce the risk of your plants and lawn becoming damaged.

If you wish to brighten up your garden with some new plants, then start planting some new perennials or bushes. Make sure your plants are watered regularly and avoid over-mulching, as this can damage your plants. Remove any dead leaves from your garden to brighten it up and use them for mulch, along with any suitable household waste that you have accumulated over the winter. Making sure your garden is free of any dead leaves or plants will help to brighten it up for spring.

Extra items such as furniture and accessories will help to liven up your garden after winter. Consider adding a garden bench, table and chairs or attractive ornaments to help compliment your plants. You can also liven up your garden by attracting wildlife with bird feeders, bird tables and other accessories.

As spring approaches, many gardeners will plan to spend more time outside caring for their plants and lawn. To ensure that your plants are provided with proper care, you will need to make sure that any garden equipment that you stored away for winter is still in good condition. Check your lawnmower and other garden tools for any signs of damage or rust. Making sure that your garden tools are in good condition will help you to provide your plants and lawn with proper treatment and will keep your garden looking lively and healthy.

You may also wish to start livening up your greenhouse after winter if you have one. Organise a thorough cleanout and remove any dead plants, bags or items that you have stored in your greenhouse during winter. Keeping your greenhouse tidy and organised will help to prepare it for use during the spring.
