6 Ways You Can Improve Your Garden's Look this Spring


Spring is here, and with it comes a new chance to impress your friends, visitors and neighbors with your garden. However, instead of just resting on your laurels and simply reviving your garden, why not take this time to reinvent your pride and joy? This will not only earn you more appreciative stares and admiring glances, it can also make your garden healthier. That said, here are some of the ways you can improve your garden’s appearance this spring.
  1. Install a water feature. When it comes to giving your garden a brand new lease on life— especially after a long and arduous winter—nothing ever comes close to the restorative and transformative effect that installing a brand new water feature can bring. Aside from becoming a perfect centerpiece for your new plants and flowers, it also helps in purifying and humidifying the air in your garden and improving the overall atmosphere around your home. Water features come in many different styles and models, too, so you’re sure to find one that works for you and your budget.
  2. Clear out your plants from last season. Depending on which state you’re in and how cold your winters get, there’s a good chance that not many of your plants from last season survived the cold. As soon as the snow and ice melt, make time to immediately clear out all your dead seasonal plants and add it to your compost heap. This will provide your garden soil with all the nutrients it needs to help your new spring season plants flourish beautifully, so make sure to render it all into mulch.
