7 Tips to Keep Your Garden Clean and Tidy

7 Tips to Keep Your Garden Clean and Tidy

Your garden is the place where you can relax, enjoy your coffee and escape from the noise of the city. Spending some time on your own outdoors helps reduce the stress you get at work and clear your mind.

But you have to take care of your home Eden as unlike an end of tenancy cleaning, keeping your garden in shape is an ongoing process that requires hard work and some basic gardening skills.

Here are a few easy tips to follow for a lush, green and healthy garden:

1. Water and Mow Your Lawn Regularly

Your grass is the first part of your home people notice, so keeping a neat, vivid and fresh lawn is highly recommended. You should water your grass 2-4 times a week depending on the season, early morning or late evening when the vaporizing is low.

After ensuring your grass is adequately watered, it is vital to mow it when it grows enough. Lawn mowing frequency may vary from month to month but should be done once it grows to 5-6 cm height.

2. Remove the Invasive Weeds

Cleaning up the weeds is a significant task when it comes to the well-being of your garden.

You should pull out all weeds growing in the flower beds and raised beds manually. It is pretty annoying, but there is no other way around it.

The good news is that weeds growing between your paving tiles can easily get sprayed with Roundup or another effective weed killer solution.

3. Trim Hedges

Stripping your hedges down might sound like an easy task, but it's not. They are fast growers, and they have to be maintained at least twice a month.

Reducing their top is fine, although hedges also need to get shaped from all sides.

Using good garden scissors will do the work, but if you would like to level up the appearance of your evergreen wall, you should probably invest in a hedge trimmer with a telescopic extension.

4. Clean Garden Decoration and Ornaments

Outdoor statues, ornaments, decorations need to get cleaned every once in a while. They collect a lot of dust, mould and moisture and require more effort to restore their original looks.

You can clean them using the household cleaning solutions you already have or use products suitable for
interior valeting.

5. Pressure Wash Your Outdoor Surfaces

Your patio, decking, driveway and garden furniture accumulate a large amount of mud, dust, algae, mould. The dirt penetrates their surface and permanently damages your backyard features.

The best way to prevent this process and keep your surfaces clean is to pressure wash them using jet spraying equipment. The method is very powerful and entirely eco-friendly as it uses only water under high pressure.

6. Blow All Fallen Leaves

Dealing with fallen leaves is a part of the garden care, especially during the fall when trees are shedding and there is more foliage around.

Leaves quickly decay on your lawn, path, and decking and make surfaces dangerous and very slippery.

You can collect them and tidy your outdoors using a leaf blower or sweep them up with a garden rake and broom if you don't own one.

7. Prune Shrubs and Bushes

Keep an eye for dead parts or damaged branches on shrubs, bushes and ivy in your garden.

Remove the exhausted or dried branches to prevent spreading diseases into the other part of the plants.

Keeping your garden clean and beautiful shouldn't be demanding or stressful. You can set aside one or two hours per week and spread them into two maintenance sessions.

The rest of the time, you can enjoy your outdoors in peace or invite friends over dinner.
