One of the best parts of spring is getting outside and digging back into your gardening hobby. When the warm weather arrives, I get so excited about the colorful blooms that’ll soon fill backyards and windowsills everywhere. Every year brings a new start to your garden. How will you make the most of the opportunity? If y’all want to try something new in your yard this year, check out these ways to spruce up your garden this spring.
If you’ve been in the gardening game for a while now, you might be looking for a way to challenge yourself this year. There are always going to be staples you want in your garden, but planting something new is a great chance to stretch your green thumb and grow in your gardening skills. If you’ve stuck to flowers in the past, grab some vegetable seeds and see how you fare growing your own food. Early spring is also a great time to branch out with trees or bushes. See what colorful and unique additions you can bring to your garden this year.
Invest in the Non-Living
Gardening isn’t all about the plants, you know. One of my favorite parts of keeping a backyard garden is all the accessories I get to add. From paths and rock beds to adorable little statues or signs, you can add loads of personality to your space with just a few cute and clever decorations. That’s why one of my favorite ways to spruce up your garden this spring is to experiment with landscaping. Try adding borders to your plant beds or running a path through the garden. If y’all are feeling really fancy, you can hook up a fountain or add lights to bring an incredible amount of charm to the space.
A Place for the Pollinators
You aren’t the only one who enjoys spending time in the garden. Pollinators are necessary for most plants to thrive. That means your garden benefits from visiting bugs like butterflies and bees. Why not make your yard an even more welcoming space for these helpful critters? Designing a bee-friendly garden is a great way to support important creatures while still creating a colorful and peaceful space for your home. You offer a safe meal for passing pollinators, they help your garden thrive, and everyone enjoys a bright and happy spring.
