5 Tips to Get Your Garden Ready for Summer

AD – This is a sponsored post. All thoughts and opinions are my own.

As we get into June, it’s finally starting to feel a bit more like Summer here in the UK. We’ve not had great weather so far – but I’m hoping for sunnier days in June and July.

I love heading to my local pub garden or enjoying a picnic in the park during the Summer months.

However, using your garden or outdoor space is an affordable and easy way to make the most of any sun this year!

There are a few ways to get your outdoor space ready for Summer this year – whether you have a huge garden or a small backyard that you want to enjoy as the weather gets warmer.

In this blog post, I’ve put together 5 simple tips to get your garden ready for Summer

1. Get planting!

Make the most of your garden this Summer by planting a few lovely plants in your outdoor space.

Gardening can be great for your mental health! Looking after a few plants can help you cultivate life and focus on a mindful activity.

You can plant anything and everything! If you have a big garden space, you could plant a few veggies, and if you have a smaller space you could plant a few gorgeous flowers.

2. Be inventive

Getting your garden ready for Summer doesn’t mean you have to spend a lot of money! You can use what you already have to create an outdoor space you love.

Bring a bit of life back to any old flowerbeds by planting some new flowers for Summer or get your old garden games out of storage to create fun activities for the kids.

You could clean up old furniture to maximise your space or add a few cushions to make a more comfortable outdoor area.

3. Think about what you want to do

If you’re getting your garden ready for Summer this year, think about what you want to do in the new season!

You might want to host BBQ parties or play fun garden games – so get ready for these activities before Summer rolls around.

Do you want to create a place for your family to eat outside? You might need to clear your patio area. Do you want to add a bit of shade so that you can work outside? Consider getting a sun umbrella!

4. Invest in some new bits and pieces

Invest in a few new bits and pieces to get your garden ready for Summer this year. You could get a cute paddling pool for your little ones, or get a shed to store away anything you need.

You could even invest in some new outdoor furniture, such as a cool hammock for you and your family.

A hammock is a fun and unique addition to your garden – and it can make your outdoor living space your own.

5. Get cleaning

If you want to get your garden ready for Summer, get cleaning! Sometimes all your outdoor space needs is a good clean-up. You could clear out old rubbish, weed your garden or clean any outdoor furniture to create your dream garden.

Giving your garden a spruce will add a bit of life to your Summer garden – and you can make a bit of space for any new bits and pieces.

Enjoy a good clear-out before you enjoy a bit of time outside this Summer!

  1. Love this post! I have taken an interest in balcony gardening too, but summers in India is simply too hot for me to bear any additional grooming of my plants. I am thinking of getting some flowering plants soon though 🙂

  2. Some good ideas! I probably won’t be doing any garden related things until next Summer as I’ll be moving mid-Summer and the garden isn’t really a priority at the moment but I can’t wait until I can plant my own flowers and get my own garden looking all pretty 🙂
