Give your garden a new 2022 beginning this Easter, here are our 5 top tips to help you get your garden Easter ready.
Cleaning your garden furniture
After months of being stored away, it’s time to bring out the garden furniture. Use a soft brush to remove any cobwebs and leaves on the sets and dust from the table and chairs. Follow with wiping them down with soapy warm water. This will thoroughly clean the furniture without causing any damage and leaving it looking brand new ready for the spring and summer seasons.
Or fancy a new set of garden furniture, we have a wide variety of sets in your local British Garden Centre and online, from stunning 4-seater patio sets to loungers and swings.
There have been great opportunities this year to cut your lawn and if you haven’t yet wait for a warm day to do so and make sure to set your lawnmower blades too high. April is also a great time to feed and treat your lawn, encourage more growth, and treat any areas growing moss from the winter months.

Clean your BBQ
BBQ season is starting with the lighter nights and hopefully warmer weather. Now is the perfect time to get prepped. Uncover or get out your BBQ and get to cleaning, use soapy warm water and a soft cloth to wipe the other surfaces to ensure they are left sparkling. To clean the inside of the BBQ, use warm soapy water with vinegar and let the grates sit for 30 minutes then wipe clean with a cloth. Or use a metal or hard bristle scrubber to get rid of any rust or left-over dirt.
