How to reanimate an old and abandoned plot in spring

Many people dream of a cozy corner outside the city where they can grow vegetables and fruits, relax in nature and enjoy fresh air. However, it is not always possible to find a place that meets all your needs, so you have to buy old and abandoned plots.

Do not be upset because you can turn any land into a blooming oasis with effort and patience. AgroMarket told us how to approach this process correctly and systematically.

Before you start any action, it is important to carefully inspect the site, assess the scope of work and draw up an action plan. In it, you should clearly outline all the stages and deadlines for their implementation. Prioritize and purchase the materials you need for your work.

What you might need

Determinewhat tools and materials you will need and make a purchase plan in advance. If you don't have it, you should still buy:

  • wheelbarrow
  • shovel
  • rake
  • comfortable shoes you will not regret damaging
  • gloves
  • garbage bags
  • plant protection products, fertilizers, seeds for sowing, etc


The first thing to do on an abandoned site is to clear it. This is the hardest and longest stage, which can take up to a month because you need to get rid of all ordinary and vegetable debris.

You should remove all fallen leaves, dry branches, and old beds. This will not only improve the appearance of the site but also create a healthy environment for planting new plants.


Pay special attention to hazardous trees. If they are very large and old, it is better to contact an arborist. Professionals will handle them quickly and safely.

Checking the infrastructure of a summer cottage is one of the most important steps. You need to check the water supply and make sure that all pipes and faucets are in satisfactory condition. In addition, check all the electricity and replace any broken light bulbs and faulty wiring. If the country house is connected to the gas supply, it is better to call in specialists to make sure the system is safe.


Once your site is clean, you should make a plan for new plants to revitalize it. To achieve the best results, choose unpretentious crops and trees. This way, you can enjoy nature and outdoor recreation without having to spend a lot of time caring for plants.
