How do I spring clean my yard?

Spring clean up in a yard begins with a big clean up of old growth and dead foliage. Whether you live in a climate that has snow all winter or a warmer climate, the yard still experiences changes during the seasons. Obviously, yards in snowy climates are extreme and once the snow melts in may hide a lot of dead growth or dead foliage on the ground. Begin at the top of your yard. Begin by trimming off dead or broken branches from trees. Next, move down to shrubs and bushes. Cut off excess growth or dead growth from the previous growing season. By cleaning up the trees and bushes, you encourage new and hearty growth. Clean up garden beds. Remove fallen leaves and dead growth. Pull out old plants. Get rid of weeds before they take over the garden and lawn with new spring growth. Leaves love spring rain. Turn the soil with the shovel or rake it all fresh. Remove all the soggy dead foliage. Trim the edges of the lawn close to the growing beds. Then rake and clean up the lawn. Rake off all the dead grass from the lawn and leaves that have been sitting there over the winter. You are cleaning everything in the garden to prepare it for new growth and all the new spring planting. It is just like cleaning the inside of the house. You remove all garbage and clean all the surfaces before you begin anew. Once everything is cleaned up in the garden, then fertilize the lawn and get ready for all the new spring planting. Mama Nono
