Mulch, weed and feedTo mulch or not? That is a another common question. Once trees have been planted, you may get a lot of new weed growth. You can remove surface weeds (especially any grass) as soon as possible, because the grass around a newly planted tree will compete with it for any water. It is best, especially if planting in grassy areas, to use a strimmer guard where possible to prevent damaging the tree, and a tree guard if you have rabbits or deer around. Using a mulch around the tree will help suppress weed growth. Put the mulch over the entire root area of the tree, which may well extend beyond the branches over time. Do not put mulch around the trunk as the resulting moisture will lead to bark decay.New trees shouldn’t need feeding, since a slow-release fertiliser will usually have been added before you buy them. And you shouldn’t need to feed your tree once it is established. However, you can buy top dress slow-release fertilisers containing potassium for the autumn time if you think your tree would benefit.
Get stuck inThanks to the longer days, the summer is a good time to tackle some of the bigger jobs around the house and garden.Outdoor areas such as the garage and shed are ideal places to tidy up during the warmer weather. And with the kids on holiday, it’s also a good time to employ their help in sorting out their bedrooms one weekend. Children often love getting their rooms redecorated, so maybe a bit of initial decluttering is in order before you get out the paintbrush.
Label, label, labelThis vintage chest of drawers has been repurposed. It’s a great way to upcycle an old piece of furniture you no longer want indoors or have found at a bargain price from a second-hand warehouse. By labelling all the drawers, you’ll be able to quickly find things you carefully stored away many months ago in the autumn!Take a little time to create a monthly job planner for your garden, and add in items month by month as you go along. A little care this year will help you out next year and every year after that.

Gardening supplies. Ask yourself the following questions when deciding which gardening tools to keep: Will you have a yard in your new home? Will you be responsible for yard maintenance or will a homeowners association be doing it for you? Will you have a lawn? Do you even like gardening? Will you be hiring a gardener? If you will not have a yard or if someone else will be doing your yard work for you, feel free to donate your gardening supplies and lawn mower. If you will have a small balcony or patio where you can have containers, consider keeping a few small items such as a trowel, weeder and gardening gloves.
