Prepare the garden to enjoy it to the fullest

Spring is just around the corner and we really want to be outside and enjoy the good weather. Here we tell you the tasks you need to do to have a garden ready for good weather.

Plan The Terrain

Draw the shape of the garden on a plane and mark the cardinal points on it to know the future incidence of light on the plants. Then make divisions: lawn area, trees, flowers, and outdoor furniture.

Remove The Weeds

They steal water, light, and nutrients from our desired plants and break the aesthetics of the garden. Protect your hands with gloves and root them out one by one. You will (without the need for pesticides) prevent them from coming back if you use landscaping fabric or cover the soil with a layer of mulch.

Fix The Lawn

Have the cold months left your lawn looking like a field of wheat? Start by aerating it by making small holes 10 cm deep in the ground and, if you see that it is not enough because the mass of felt (dry leaves, roots, etc.) accumulated is very dense, scarify (or scratch) the ground with an object. to oxygenate it.

Desired Species

Get your garden tools ready because you need to plant your marigolds, pansies, and petunias so they bloom in late spring or summer. If you don’t have the patience, you can buy the adult plants in a nursery and transplant them already in flower in the place of the garden of your choice.

Seedlings And Pots

Some species will need to spend some time in seedbeds or pots until they germinate and you can transplant them in the garden. Try to ensure that they are protected from frost and that the compost is organic (household waste such as fruit and vegetable peelings, dry leaves, coffee grounds, egg shells, etc.).

Control Irrigation

Although in spring it is not as hot as in summer, the best time to water the plants is still either early in the morning or late in the afternoon, this way we will ensure that the roots have a minimum of eight hours of water. Water.

Rose Bushes Like A Rose

March is the right month to prune rose bushes (yes, if it still freezes at night, wait another week for the night weather to improve in your region). Also, remove the weeds that surround it.

Organize According To Daylight Hours

Plant or place the pots in the garden depending on the species’ need for light. Rose bushes require a minimum of five hours of direct sunlight to flower, and daisies four. Instead, gardenias or queen earrings are considered shade plants. Project by the landscaper Pilar Pérez-Calvo, pots and planters from Jardiland, and plants from Corma nurseries.

Pay Attention To The Trees

You would still be in time to prune the trees since the bad weather is still with us, but in spring it is preferable not to do it because you would slow down their growth. Simply cut off dead branches or those shorter than two inches. Table by Antic Center, chairs by Rastro de Madrid, and deckchair by Platero.

Outside As At Home

Choose outdoor furniture suitable for the space you have in the garden and place it in a grassy area close to the shade.

Shadow Here, Shadow There

If the building – due to its orientation – does not cast a shadow on the outdoor furniture, install a fabric awning over them to protect yourself from the sun. The table and benches are from Renova and the cushions are from Filocolore.

Outdoor Naps

And why not hang a hammock? Not everything is going to be eating or attending to visitors in the garden, you will also need time to relax and ‘balance’. Hammock with Filocolore mattress and cushion by Catalina House, picnic basket by Natura Casa, and stool by Jaime Beriestain.

And If You Have A Garden

Those who have a large garden usually reserve an area for a vegetable garden, where it is time to sow: tomato, lettuce, courgette, aubergine, basil… Organic vegetable garden in a garden designed by Antonio Troyano.

Think and act like a professional landscaper. It’s spring and it’s time to get down to work on the outside of your house. Start by planning your garden by designing a plan of the space in which you have to mark north, south, east, and west in order to calculate the hours of daylight that there will be in each area. This is the correct way to plant trees, plants, and shrubs. The rest of the tasks will go through a good distribution, the care of the existing species, and complete and decorative outdoor equipment.

Tables and chairs

Place the garden furniture on a large area of ​​grass, preferably next to a shade (perhaps in spring it is not so necessary, but in summer you will appreciate it). If you don’t have trees nearby or the building doesn’t cast shade where you want it, put up an umbrella or light-colored fabric awning.

Other accessories

The poufs are very practical, the hammocks very relaxing and the lights are necessary: ​​don’t forget to hang light bulbs on the adjoining walls or on the resistant bushes; neither of the candles and the lanterns on the tables and the floor.
