At last, the sun is out and we are finally ready to invest some time and effort in turning our withered garden into something beautiful. We look at some of the ways you can get started in your garden this spring.

Spring has arrived and that means one thing. It is time to finally venture out to our garden space and give it much needed attention and care after months of storms.

Before you decide to embark on a Chelsea graden type transformation of your garden space, there are a few things that you need to ensure your work is fruitful and productive.

The first thing that you should do, according to the experts, is to ensure all of your gardening equipment is in good working order after being left derelict for so long. All tools, such as your shears, should be sharpened and lawnmower is working properly.

Now is the time to prepare your defences against garden pests before they all descend when the weather gets warmer. You can seek advice from your local garden center on the best deterrents to use. Some of the popular methods to use is copper bands around pots and organic pellets to fight of slugs.

Garden experts advise to be careful about feeding plans with instant fertilisers early in the season as there is still the threat of late frosts. Such fresh buds can end up burnt or worse. However, you can add an instant pop of colour to your garden by adding such plants as polyanthus, daisies and scented wallflowers.

After the downpours in recent months, your garden may still be waterlogged. Sometimes, water can be there with no means of escaping so you may need to aerate your lawn. You can do this by hiring an aeration machine or doing it manually.

Clean your pots and fill them with fresh soil. Once you have all done, then it is time to wait for spring to fully bloom and you can finally get right into gardening action!
