When nature slowly starts to awaken from its winter sleep and the first rays of sun brighten the heart, many hobby gardeners' thumbs start itching. The start of spring is the kick-off for the gardening season. What work needs to be done to get the outdoor area ready for the spring? The following tips will tell you!
The lawn is the heart of the garden. To make sure that it has its splendid green colour by summer, remnants such as fallen leaves, branches & co. should be removed in spring so that the soil gets the air and water it needs. Then it's time for a haircut – but not too much! When you're done mowing, the lawn should be at least three centimetres long. Then comes the fertiliser – preferably on dry soil – in order to supply the soil with valuable nutrients to promote growth. This is ideally followed by rainwater: This lets nutrients trickle down far into the soil.
Spring is the best time of year to move virtually all kinds of plants: After a strenuous winter, they now need more space in their pots and new soil in order to grow and flourish. When filling the containers, it is important to ensure that they have an adequate drainage layer. Not only will this prevent the nutrient-rich soil from being washed away; it will also stop water from getting logged in the pot or the box. Ready-made drainage pads, such as EASY DRAIN turn potting and repotting into child's play.
Good for plants and beautiful for the eye of the beholder – sufficiently sized and particularly pretty window boxes and planters from the LANDHAUS collection. Whether pastel colours like turquoise and dusty pink or more vibrant shades such as yellow and green – spring is the best host to welcome fresh coloured boxes, planters or bowls and to set colourful accents in your garden.
Not just a beautifully tended lawn and colourful plants enrich the garden – small song birds are also welcome guests. Thanks to nesting boxes and feeders, our feathered friends can find a safe and dry place to feed. The LANDHAUS bird houses make a cosy home for song birds such as blue tits or house sparrows. The LANDHAUS bird feed dispenser is available to birds all year round to cover their need for fresh and dry feed.
