Tips and Tools to Help the Garden Transition from Spring to Summer

The turning of seasons are times of change in the garden. The transitions of fall to winter and winter to spring are pretty obvious—put your garden to bed for the former and plan and plant it for the latter. What about the transition from spring to summer, though?

While the changes that occur from spring to summer are less obvious, the transition is really all about preparing the garden for the best growth possible. And there’s plenty for us to do to help the changeover go seamlessly. 

WATERING

The summer garden needs water—and plenty of it. Plan now to water your garden regularly. Get yourself a nozzle that suits your needs. The 2-Piece Watering Set covers all the bases with an 8-pattern Water Wand and a 7-pattern Plastic Nozzle. The wand has an adjustable-angle spray head, and both have lock-on clips for continuous water flow. Their lightweight plastic bodies will give you years of durability.

Don’t forget your houseplants, whether you take them outside for the summer or keep them inside. Water them easily with the Battery Sprayer. Using just two AA batteries, this sprayer can be adjusted to emit anywhere from a fine mist to a steady stream—all without having to pump a trigger! A new design allows it to spray even when turned upside down, which is sometimes unavoidable, depending on the plant. And when your plants come inside in the fall, your sprayer can, too.

TRIMMING

Spring’s new growth can result in summer’s overgrowth, making your yard look messy. Get your hedges in clean-cut shape with the Link Force Hedge Shear with Telescoping Handles, designed to cut with less effort. The wavy steel blades grip your hedge’s branches for clean cuts, and its non-stick blade surface keeps the tool from gumming up. You can reach further and safer with the shear’s pin-locking telescoping handles, which extend from 26 to 32 inches.

For trimming thin branches or cutting flowers, you’ll need a tool that offers precise cuts. The Steel Bypass Pruner does the job. With a 5/8-in. diameter cutting capacity, the blades are ultra-durable and heavy-duty steel blades to ensure a clean cut for years and years.

CARING FOR THE BIRDS

Birds and other winged creatures are doing you a service when they visit your garden. They’re eating insects—and potentially the ones that eat your plants! Make the birds feel welcome with supplemental food and water. We offer a range of feeder types and styles, such as those specifically for hummingbirds, ones that’ll feed a flock, and even a cat-pleasing feeder you can attach to a window. Put up your feeders in spring to help encourage birds to stick around when summer’s pesky pests arrive.
