Tidy up the garden and the patio
Spring is usually the best time to tidy up the garden and clean the patio. Garden furniture and flower pots have to be cleaned and green deposits need to be removed from the patio tiles. Shrubs, such as buddleia and jasmine, need to be pruned, you need to cut out the dead branches and prick your lawn. It is also a good time to remove weeds, before plants start to grow and whilst you can still reach them. Start dealing with slugs on time, before they become a plague.
