Things To do In Your Garden in May

ADAuthor - Artificial Grass Direct

2 min read

With May comes an explosion of flowers, warmer temperatures and the sweet smell of summer around the corner.

May is usually characterised by warm days and cool nights, and gardeners should be taking advantage of the longer hours of daylight. Starting garden tasks early will almost certainly pay off, with an attractive looking landscape to look forward to over the summer months.

May is a busy month for gardeners, but try to take some time to step back and enjoy the beautiful colours, animals and spring plants that come with the warmer temperatures.

Artificial Grass Direct are bringing you our top 5 handy hints about what you could be doing in the garden this May.

1. Beware of Late Frosts

Even as light levels and temperatures slowly start to increase, it’s not uncommon for late frosts to sneak up in late April/early May. Keep vulnerable parts of your garden protected should the cold weather threaten to return.

2. Tidy and mend

Take the opportunity to get rid of weeds before they start to attract pests and diseases. Prune any remaining spring flowering shrubs to encourage growth for next year.

3. Root out Weeds

After a good clear up, weeds will be much more prominent so take your time to remove them all to prepare beds for spring planting.

4. Spring Clean

If you own a greenhouse, shed, or summerhouse takes this time to clear them out and give them a spring clean. Clean and insulate your greenhouse properly, and check heaters are working fully to ensure it’s prepared for the growing season.

5. Lawn

May is the best month to start repairs on your lawn.

Those with natural grass lawns should be using this month to apply fertiliser and weed killer to encourage healthy growth and fill in any bare spots. Mow regularly to ensure it grows evenly.

For those with artificial grass lawns simply sit back and enjoy the warm weather! Other than a quick brush every couple of weeks to get rid of leaves and debris your lawn will take care of itself.

Happy gardening!
