Spring is here! After being inside all winter and with temperatures rising, most people jump at the chance to go outside. And for many, the first thing they look to do is clean up their yard and start gardening. Seeing flowers blooming and trees blossoming makes people feel happy and hopeful. And we can all use that right now!
Below are some useful tips on gardening and things you can do to spruce up your yard and outside areas. March and April are the perfect time to get out and start working. These months are typically when you spend the most time in your garden.
There can be much to do after winter just to get things ready like clean up, raking and pruning. Here are some things you can do to start the season off.
Gardening is actually a great workout. After a day of gardening I am always sore and definitely sleep well afterwards. Not only are you using muscles you don’t normally use, you are outside breathing in fresh air. And after being more sedentary during the colder winter months you should welcome a chance to spend time outdoors. Below are some additional health reasons to get out and garden.
I’ve often gone to the garden center and see beautiful containers filled with just the right mix of flowers and colors. However, they can be expensive and when I try to re-create the look it’s not quite the same. Sometimes I just end up spending more to buy the pre-potted container. So if you’re not exactly a pro when it comes to container gardening, this website has a great filter search with several options to choose from such as container size, plant color and sun and shade exposure. Once you make your choices they will show you the type and number of items to purchase.
Hope you have a great week!
