Spring has sprung. And is there a better time to give your garden a makeover than right now? Nope, there isn’t. So let’s refresh our yards and bring them back to life, because the winter sure was long and tough. But who says that a spring garden makeover has to be a lot of work? There are easy, affordable, yet effective ways to completely transform your garden and prepare it for the warmer months. Here are some of our favorite ones.
Adding bright flowers is one of the best ways to spice up your garden for spring. Tulips, daffodils, and hyacinths are just a few of the spring-blooming flowers that can give your garden a splash of color. These bulbs can be grown in pots or in your garden beds and come in a range of colors and sizes. Choose flowers that will enhance your garden’s existing decor and give your outdoor area a touch of freshness.
Plant an Herb and Vegetable Garden
Planting a vegetable and herb garden is another wonderful idea for this upcoming spring. Fresh herbs and vegetables are not only useful for cooking, but they also liven up your garden aesthetically. You can grow herbs such as basil, parsley, and mint. While you can use separate pots to do that, it’s also more than fine to do it in your regular gardening beds. If you’re feeling particularly motivated, you can also plant veggies such as peas, lettuce, and radishes. These aren’t too complicated to take care of. But they will give your garden a fresh look while also providing you with some delicious and organic food!
Update Your Garden Decor with Simple Additions
Updating your garden decor is another method to uplift your yard for spring. Small additions to your outside area, such wind chimes, birdhouses, and garden statues, can give your outdoor space a whole new charming character. Also, you can modernize your outdoor furniture by painting or adding new cushions. These changes won’t cost you too much while still giving your garden a fresh and clean look. You can even thrift for new decor or up-cycle some of your old treasures.
Illuminate Your Garden with Outdoor Lighting
If you like to spend time in your garden at night, you might want to install outdoor lights. Outdoor lighting is will not only enhance the atmosphere of your garden, but also makes it safer at night. Depending on your taste, there are many different lighting options available, including string lights, lanterns, and spotlights. Also, you can highlight particular parts of your garden using outdoor lighting. Outdoor lights create a romantic and welcoming environment without costing too much money.
Clean and Tidy Up for a Fresh Start
Finally, cleaning and organizing is a quick, satisfying, and almost completely free method of upgrading your garden. Your garden beds should be weeded, dead plants and waste removed, and overgrown plants pruned. This will not only make your yard look tidy and aesthetically pleasing, but also get it ready for spring. In addition to that, it’s also a great way to get your hands dirty and feel productive while doing it.
