Garden Checklist: Top Tips on How to Get Your Garden Ready for Spring

With spring just around the corner and the end of winter officially in sight, it is time to start planning your garden projects ready for the season ahead.

Spring is a very joyous time of year for many garden lovers and enthusiasts, saying goodbye to the cold winter weather, and hello to the blossoming of trees and flowers. You may also want to look at how to improve your garden design, to make it more versatile and welcoming.

At Nelson Potter, as highly experienced timber merchants based in East Anglia, we supply a wide range of products to help you get your garden ready for spring, from fence panels and decking components to sheds and summerhouses, as well as a huge choice of garden furniture.

Here we have drawn up the ultimate spring garden checklist, to help with choosing the right products for your garden in time for the new season.

Create Seating Areas and Social Spaces

Do you want to spend more time enjoying your outdoor space and entertaining this year? New garden furniture will be the perfect way to kick start your season in style. Sit, relax and enjoy socialising with friends as the weather improves, or have a picnic in the garden with your family, to make the most of natural light. Nelson Potter supplies attractive wooden patio dining sets, which are built to last, as well as benches and tables.

Invest in a new Garden Building, Shed or Summerhouse

From storage sheds and workshops to playhouses for the children, investing in a new garden building is a great way to prepare for the warmer months.

Get ready to spend more time in the garden with a summerhouse or den, where you can socialise with friends, fulfil your hobbies and interests or hide away and take some time out to read. A summerhouse can be used as a creative space a place where you can let your imagination run wild.

At Nelson Potter, we have a range of high-quality garden buildings available in a range of different sizes, including potting sheds, tool sheds and storage sheds, as well as summerhouses, garden studios, dens and lodges, not forgetting pet houses and kennels.

Improve Perimeters and Boundaries

As you make garden improvements in the lead-up to spring, you may wish to consider new boundaries to your garden landscape.  Old fences may need replacing after the winter, perhaps as a result of weather damage, or you may just want to add a new panel from our huge range. This is a great opportunity to include decorative fencing panels or add a trellis.

Garden structures such as arches and arbours are ideal for encouraging climbing plants to grow. They can also be placed above pathways to section off different parts of your garden, helping to make your space more versatile and harmonious.

Add a Garden Gate

A new gate is a wonderful addition to any garden this spring. As well as providing a welcoming entrance to your garden, a gate will enhance your privacy and security.

Nelson Potter supplies high-quality wooden garden gates in many different sizes and colour variations, to complement your fence or wall, including picket gates, weatherboard pedestrian gates and a variety of decorative gates. We also supply gate posts.
