It won’t be long before the harsh British winter says farewell and spring arrives, which is the ideal time to get the garden into shape prior to summer. Now is the time to take a good look at your outdoor living space and decide what needs to be done, and with that in mind, here are a few great ideas to brighten up your garden ready for the summer.


If your fencing has seen better days, it could either be treated with stain and preservative, or replaced completely. You can eliminate maintenance by choosing a composite material for your new fencing, and they even make aluminium fencing that looks like real timber. If the fencing is still in good order, a coat of creosote is all it needs to restore it to its former glory.

The Patio

If you would like a new terrace, an online search will help you to locate a paving company in Hailsham, and with a range of quality paving stones, you can transform your patio in time for summer. The other alternative is to give the terrace a much needed power wash, which will restore the paving to its original condition and by applying a sealant, the surface will be protected against the elements.

Planting Flowers and Shrubs

Spring is the right time to plant flowers and shrubs, with species such as;

  • Tulips
  • Daffodils
  • Pansies
  • Snapdragon

This will add some colour and depth to the garden, and by mulching the flower beds, they will receive some much needed nutrition after a long winter.

Once the fine weather arrives, it is time to get that gardening tools out and begin to transform your outdoor living space.
