5 Gardening Activities for July

5 gardening activities for July

    1. Prepare for the summer holidays
      The holidays are coming, and whether you’re parents or simply know a few teachers, your garden will be the best place to spend the six weeks with family and friends. If you haven’t done so already, give the garden a good tidy up, dust down the garden furniture and make sure that you’re stocked up on plenty of garden based toys and activities for the kids.
  • Care for your lawn
    Lawn care can be tricky to get right. While instinct is to turn the sprinklers on and douse the lawn as soon as the weather warms up, you can save yourself water by simply not cutting the grass as short as you may think you need to. Grass that’s a little bit longer won’t require as much watering! Do keep on top of cutting the grass every fortnight or so, however, so that the weeds don’t completely take over.
  • Pot some plants
    Potted plants are a fantastic way to dress up your garden, and what better time to start adding a few more pots and plants to the landscape of your garden than July. Inexpensive to buy and easy to put together, potted plants can be dotted around your garden and easily moved if necessary, making them a simple and versatile way to add a little more colour to your garden. If you don’t want to buy any more pots, why not improvise and upcycle containers from around the house by painting them before planting brightly coloured flowers? Make sure you water the pots daily through the warmer months.
  • Make a plan for your holidays
    While you may be looking forward to jetting off somewhere warmer than the UK over the summer, your garden may suffer in your absence. If you’re planning on going away in July or August, take some time to prepare for you being away for a week or so. Give the grass a cut and get rid of as many weeds as you can from flowerbeds. Take a look at bedding plants such as roses and deadhead them where possible. Before you go, give everything a good last water and either arrange for a friend to pop round and top it up while you’re away, or invest in an irrigation kit to keep everything hydrated.
  • Sit back and enjoy the view
    There’s no better activity that simply relaxing in your garden. Sit back and take in the view of your gardening handywork from your rattan furniture or metal furniture from Leader Stores for maximum comfort.
