Before You Begin Gardening, Follow These 3 Steps to Prepare Your Plot, Fairfield, Ohio

The air is getting warmer and spring is finally here. You rejoice in the arrival of the new season but suddenly remember your garden is nowhere near ready for planting. Never fear — the experts at Lakeview Garden Center & Landscaping in Fairfield, OH, say taking care of a few simple tasks will help you get ready for gardening.

3 Steps to Prepare for Spring Gardening

1. Pick Your Plants

One of the most exciting parts of gardening is selecting your next crop. Do you want summer squash and watermelon, or should you opt for wildflowers? Pre-order seeds or bulbs so they’re on hand when it’s time to tend to your garden.

2. Prep the Ground

Gardening Fairfield OHLook at the state of your garden plot to see if it’s ready for planting. Remove dead leaves and debris that have fallen into the garden and make sure it’s free of pests. If your soil is looking dry and depleted, add minerals to make it healthier, refresh it with topsoil, or till it to stir things up.

3. Take Care of Logistics

Before you’re ready to begin planting, ensure your gardening structures are in order. This includes fixing broken greenhouse ceiling slats, adding trellises or fences to keep out unwanted visitors, and creating a nearby compost area so your garden will be well-fertilized.

Planting a spring garden is simple when you plan ahead. If you need help, the friendly team at Lakeview Garden Center & Landscaping will assist you in getting your little patch of paradise in top shape.
