The New Year is finally here – and that means it’s time to start putting your New Year’s resolutions into practice. The New Year is the perfect time to start thinking about the small changes you want to make in your life during the year ahead and how you plan to improve yourself and achieve your goals.
Whether you’re an avid gardener with a passion for gardening or you’re hoping to take it up as a hobby in the New Year, there are plenty of resolutions for gardeners of all levels to consider. Here are just three of our favourites!
Take care of your tools
Make it your mission to take care of your tools and keep up with machinery maintenance this year. Whether you’ve got a few special tools or a shed full of machinery, it’s important you keep them in top condition. Avoid leaving them out in the rain to rust and always keep your tools clean – in many cases, it only takes a few minutes! Lubricate any moving parts to ensure your machinery continues to operate smoothly and efficiently too.
Start a compost heap
Starting your own compost heap is a rewarding resolution that offers huge benefits. Having your own compost heap not only ensures more of your waste is recycled, but it helps to improve your garden soil and reduces your contribution to landfill too. There are lots of things you can put into your compost heap, from vegetable peelings to coffee grounds. This composted material can then be used in your soil as plant food to help your plants and flowers thrive.
Set up a gardening schedule
The best way to keep your garden in top condition is to put together a gardening schedule – and make sure you stick to it! This will ensure your lawn gets mowed regularly, your hedges are trimmed back and your weeds are taken care of. Creating a simple maintenance schedule will help you to keep on top of your garden and ensure all your gardening chores and lists get done.
