Are you a gardener looking for tips on preparing your garden for the spring season? If so, you've come to the right place. Below we've highlighted four tips to ensure you're fully ready. Review this list below and see which tasks you must do to ensure you're completely prepared.

1. Clear Your Garden Beds

Before doing anything else, it's essential to clear your garden beds. When doing this, ensure that you're removing all dead leaves. It's also critical to remove all weeds. If any weeds are left behind, you risk them coming back and competing with your plants. All in all, it's important to have a bare soil surface before planting anything to guarantee it's as fresh as possible and promotes healthy growth.

2. Clean and Sharpen All Gardening Tools

Cleaning and sharpening all of your gardening tools is crucial. First, cleaning your gardening tools will ensure they aren't carrying any diseases or bugs. To sterilize these tools properly, place them in hot water and clean them with a wire brush. Then, sharpening the garden tools guarantees they're ready for all duties, like pruning, digging, and shaping, before the growing season. To sharpen tools properly, a gardener should apply natural oil to the metal parts.

3. Prepare Your Watering System

Watering System

A successful garden is dependent on an effective watering system. For example, providing a lawn with an inch of water per square foot takes over half of a gallon, according to Today's Homeowner. With this large amount considered, have as much water as needed ready to use for spring. Depending on your watering system preferences, there are various chores that you might need to complete. If you have a small garden, you might only need to ensure you have a hose or watering can ready for the spring. On the contrary, if you have a larger garden, you'll have a more extensive preparation with setting up your sprinklers or irrigation system.

4. Find Your Mulch

Mulch is a vital element of any garden. It provides various benefits, like retaining moisture, preventing erosion, and stopping weed growth. With this said, find your mulch and be ready for spring. During this process, you'll need to know whether you'd like organic or inorganic mulch, how much you need, and where to store it.
