It is National Gardening Week, a time to celebrate the beauty of good landscaping and the great outdoors. If your garden is still suffering the effects of Winter then there has never been a better time to begin sprucing up your outdoor space in time for spring gatherings.
At Leekes you’ll find everything you need, from shovels and shears to strimmers and shredders to ensure your garden is in picture perfect condition this season. Follow our easy steps to get you started:
1.Out with the old - Winter will take its toll on any garden and so by spring some TLC is sorely needed. Start by clearing any fallen leaves and dead plants. Remove any weeds, not forgetting in between patio slabs and walls. Finally trim any hedges and mow the lawn and your garden will start to look better already. For a mower that packs a lot of punch, try the Bosch Rotak 36R Rotary Lawnmower with ‘Powerdrive' motor to ensure a reliable cut, even on long or wet grass. Plus - it’s 40 litre grass box with carry handle is sure to make for a quick and clean mowing experience.
2.Get cleaning - With a winters worth of grime build-up it can be just as important to give your garden a spring clean as it is for your home! Try blasting any patios, fences and furniture with a pressure washer, for a deep clean in minutes. The Karcher K4 Premium Pressure Washer is the perfect garden cleaning accessory with dirt blasting spray lance, patio cleaner and stone cleaning detergent included.
3.Fake it until you make it - A healthy garden will be full of bright beautiful colours, however if your bloom isn’t meeting expectations this year then there are alternative ways to liven up your outdoor living space. At Leekes you’ll find a huge range of external paints to get your garden looking in tip top condition in no time. Try touching up your brick work, or be bold with a brightly coloured fence.
4.In with the new - With your gardening looking spic and span you can now consider getting your fingers green. If you are limited for space adding potters, planters and hanging baskets is a great way to create a fabulous floral garden whilst leaving plenty of floor room. The Norfolk Leisure Grigio Rectangle Planter, for example is perfect for displaying plants or flowers on decking, balconies or doorsteps. Whereas the sleek rectangle design and washed grey paint add contemporary character to any garden.
5.Sit back and relax - After all that hard work it is only right that you enjoy it. Invest in a comfortable lounge set like the Garden Trading Bosham Corner Sofa Set (photographed above) so that family and friends alike can admire your new outdoor space.
