How to Prepare Your Garden for Spring in 9 Steps

Well before spring rolls around, you need to take the time to prepare for the planting season ahead. John Deere has a wide array of lawn and grounds equipment to help you achieve a wide array of tasks, whether you’re focused on flowers, fruits, or vegetables. Using the right tools can help you transform your spring from an average planting season to one that goes above and beyond your gardening dreams.

Why is it Important to Prepare Your Garden Before Planting?

After a long winter, it’s critical to take the time to tend to your grounds before you do any planting. This is especially the case if did little or no maintenance during the winter. While it’s true that many plants will grow in sub-par conditions, it’s best to optimize your soil to give them the best chance to thrive.

To begin, look into the specific soil requirements for the type of plants you are working with this season. While some may do well in sandy soil, others may need an ample amount of water. It’s important to consider this factor before you put anything into the ground.

Next, you may want to utilize organic material and fertilizer to correct nutrient deficiencies in your soil. Plants use many macronutrients found in fertilizer, including nitrogen, phosphorus, and potassium.

Finally, take the time to eliminate nearby weeds in your soil before planting. You may also want to consider using a non-selective herbicide to get rid of any weeds that sprout up during the growing season.
