Pull out any dead plants, flowers or new weeds that have popped up overnight. Grab fallen leaves, branches or any other debris left over from the winter. It’s a quick and easy pick-me-up the whole family can help out with! This means the ponds too!

2. Sprinkle, Sprinkle.

After your clean up, start with a quick sprinkle of feed for the soil. This is a great way to get the ground ready for growth. And go ahead and give the lawn a good feed and seed as well.

3. First, the veggies.

Before any flowers are planted, pick your veggies. If you’re looking forward to trying your hand at growing some delicious tomatoes or even some cucumbers, early spring is the time to do so!

4. The Already Grown.

Go to your nearest nursery and buy some annuals. Then get to planting! This will give your garden a nice pop of color and springtime style. It’ll be a great lift for the entire landscape after your clean up session.

5. Think about trees and bushes.

Another great way to spruce up the garden is to check any pots for cracks or a feeling that you need something a little more stylish. Or, for plants that are getting too big for their plot, re-pot them and keep them alive!{found on curiouspebble}.
