10 Tips To Get Your Garden Ready For Spring

10 tips to prepare your garden for spring cover
  1. See what’s missing. Are there areas where you need screening because you suddenly you notice the air conditioning unit that looks horrible?
  2. Add trellises, tuteurs, and supports if you need some.
  3. Help your hardscape. Get sand to fill the cracks on a brick path or add stone edging if you want some.
  4. Plant shrubs and trees. Give your garden good bones by strategically placing small trees and shrubs to anchor beds.
  5. Place your order. After you decide how to fill the holes, place an early order to get the best selection and prices on both specimen trees and hardscape elements.
  6. Buy seeds.
  7. Rehab your tools – clean, oil and repair them.
  8. Prune judiciously. If you live in a zone where you already see that trees and shrubs have buds swelling, you want to get the pruning done before they do leaf out.
  9. Weed with enthusiasm. If your ground is not frozen, now is a great time for weeding before the roots get established and everything goes to seed.
  10. Mulch for moisture. If you have a shrub border established and you want to get that mulch on before it gets hot, it’s not a bad idea.
