Prepare Yourself For The Summer

Prepping For Summer

In case you haven’t noticed, we’ve been going a bit garden crazy over the last couple of weeks. It’s that wonderful time of year when it seems like the summer is just around the corner (at least when it isn’t raining). Getting your garden ready for the coming months of barbecues and the sun being out ’til 10 at night is something that makes us eSpares types pretty excited.

Whilst it meant that the past weekend was the shortest of the year, it also means that spring has well and truly sprung and gardening is firmly back on the agenda.

How’s Your Lawn Looking?

Over the past few weeks a lot of the UK has bathed in beautiful, and very warm, sunshine. And while the weather has been perfect for heading down to the beach for the day or playing Frisbee in the park, it’s a decidedly more stressful time for garden owners across the country as they try in vain to keep their lawns from turning in to parched wastelands. The damper weather this week has offered some respite, but summer can still be a testing time for lawn wranglers.
