Tip 1: the lawn
With a special scarifier, you can rake moss, dead grass and mowing residues from the grass. This allows the grass to breathe again and this creates space for further growth. It is also good to aerate the grass with a special machine. The glass is thoroughly thinned so that new healthy grass can grow again. After scarifying, sprinkle with manure to promote growth.
Tip 2: pruning
Now it’s time to prune back the climbing roses. Prune the side branches back considerably, but keep the main branches intact. You can only prune it if you want to rejuvenate the ivy. Pollard willows can be pruned back until mid-March and it is now also time to cut dry parts of the permanent plants. If you cut the cut parts small you can just leave them. This is self-digesting.
Tip 3: the pond
Nets against falling leaves may be removed in March. Check the water pump and filters. Is everything still working properly? You can now also remove the remains of aquatic plants and remove dirt from the soil. Are there fish in the pond? It is good to check them for symptoms after the winter. The condition of the fish deteriorates in the winter. As soon as the water reaches a temperature of 10 ° C, you can carefully feed the fish again.
Tip 4: planting
Taking care of the plants is of course also an important part of garden maintenance in March. Are you planning to move a hedge? Or do you want to place a tree in a different place in the garden? March is the month to do this. In addition, it is smart to protect the plant beds with nets. The germinating seeds and the young leaves of the plants are loved by different species of birds.
