Declutter Your Garden With These Simple Tips

Summer is the season of fresh starts and many of us are using the sun-soaked hours to freshen up our homes. However, summer is also the season of outdoor barbeques, backyard gatherings and poolside parties. Therefore, summer is also the season to declutter your garden. These tips will ensure that the process of decluttering your garden is as easy and as pain-free as possible.

Tip #1: Clear Out The Clutter 

To start decluttering your garden, clear out any garden clutter – that is leaves, twigs or any other plant matter accumulated within your garden. Once the clutter has been cleared, it is also a good idea to clean any hard surfaces, such as footpaths, in the garden area to give these surfaces a sheen. This is a simple task that makes any garden look brand new!

Tip #2: Remove Any Dead Plants

Regardless of what kind of style you’re aiming for, a garden should inspire life. This goes for both outdoor gardens and indoor plants. Therefore, any dead or wilting plants should be removed. In the same vein, this is also the time to trim plants that have overgrown and remove those pesky weeds. Whilst it may be difficult to part with some of your formerly or barely living plant friends, decluttering your garden by saying goodbye will make room for new, live plants to continue the circle of life.

Tip #3: Less Is More

Decluttering your garden in a way that is both productive and aesthetically pleasing can be a challenging process. The garden is a living space, therefore the aesthetic rules of interior design also apply to gardens – less is more. Decluttering your indoor and gardens is an opportunity to give each individual plant their time to shine.

Tip #4: Organise Your Tools 

It can be hard to motivate yourself to declutter your garden when your gardening tools are sitting in the corner of your garage covered in cobwebs and a thick layer of dust. Thus, investing the time and energy into creating a simple organisational system for your tools can work wonders. This means that next time some weeds start to grow or leaves need to be trimmed, you have the means and the motivation to regularly declutter your garden.

Regardless of how the inside of your home looks, the garden is the first thing guests see when they arrive at your house. Whilst many people have no problem decluttering their houses, decluttering the garden can be a daunting prospect. This is especially true if it has been a while since your garden’s last decluttering. Hopefully, these simple tips will have you decluttering your garden in no time!
