How to Get Your Garden Ready For Spring

The start of a new year is always an exciting time for a gardener as you can start to prepare for spring after months of bad weather.

There are a few steps that you can take now to get your backyard ready for spring and the warmer months so that you can make this a nice space to spend time.

Spring Cleaning 


Much like you would inside the home, you will first want to start with spring cleaning the garden. This will include removing any dead leaves and debris from your lawn and flower beds, removing weeds and getting rid of fallen branches. You can put dead organic waste in compost to use as fertilizer. 

Checking Your Tools

Now is also a good time to go through your tools and make sure that they are clean, maintained and ready to be used throughout the warmer months. This will also give you a chance to sort out your shed, which can be a challenging task but one that makes a big difference to your life as a gardener.


The start of the year is the perfect time for pruning trees and old shrubs as you can clearly see the branch structure and leaves will not get in the way. However, it is recommended to look at calendars online as there are also some that are best pruned after blooming. Safety is key when pruning, so you need to be careful when using hand shears for pruning saws and always make sure that you have sufficient protection gear from reliable PPE suppliers in case you have any accidents. 

Preparing Soil

One of the most exciting aspects of getting your garden ready for spring is preparing the soil so that you can plan what you want your garden to look like and take steps towards a bright, colourful and verdant garden. To prepare the soil for planting, you will want to aerate the soil and use mulch to create a healthy and strong foundation for growing flowers, plants or vegetables. You want to make sure that you have enough space in the backyard for your plants and create new flower beds or spaces if you want to expand this year.



These are the key steps that you should be taking now to prepare your garden for spring – of course, now is also the perfect time to prepare for any new projects that you want to work on. Whether you are looking into building a garden pond, a raised bed or simply planting a new fruit tree, there should be no limits to your creativity and the beginning of the year is the perfect time to sit down and gather some new ideas. After months of harsh weather, it is an exciting time to start preparing your backyard so that it will be full of colour and life during the warmer months of the year.
