With the arrival of the warm weather, it’s time to get your garden back into shape after a long winter!

At The Ghent Group, we are more than happy to help out with all your garden and landscaping needs.

Here are some tips to help you achieve a beautiful garden this summer!

Lawn Care:

Get your lawn looking healthy for the summer! Use granular feed to replenish and repair your lawn. Make the most of the rain to come, because it will be helpful to your grass!

Patio:

It’s always a good idea to power wash your patio to clear it of the dirt and debris it’s picked up over the winter. It’s affordable and beneficial, and will make your patio look brand new! This is the perfect time to get ready for fun summer barbecues!

Add bright coloured flowers to your garden to bring some beauty to your yard. Also consider bright coloured accessories including umbrellas, patio pillows, centerpieces and more.

Light:

Add light to your yard! Consider solar lights for your garden. They’re extremely cost conscious and are energy efficient!

Weeds:

Get rid of those nasty weeds before anything! Clear them out to make room for bright, beautiful flowers. Make sure to have a good amount of mulch on your garden beds to conserve moisture, reduce weeds, and keep the soil cooler in the warm heat. The best time to water your plants is in the early morning!

Extras:

Water features, like a birdbath should be cleaned and replenished to keep mosquitoes away.

By following all of these tips, you’re sure to have your yard summer ready in no time! It’s always nice to sit back, relax, and see that your hard work has paid off! Your garden will look fabulous in the sun, and your yard will become the oasis of your dreams!
