The snow and ice have melted, but this winter’s wild storms have left yards across the country in need
of a major spring-cleaning. Here are some ideas for how to begin, inspired by the hyper-organized folks
at Uncluttered:
Spring can be an overwhelming time for gardeners. Winter is gone and has left yards in need of a major
spring – cleaning. I will provide you some ideas for how to begin the garden cleaning operation.

1. Remove the debris.

Remove the debris

If the winter’s seemingly incessant wind, rain, and snow have done a number on
your trees, start your clean-up efforts by collecting the fallen branches and scattered sticks. If your town
doesn’t pick up lawn debris on a regular basis, find out if any spring collection days have been planned
or if there’s a nearby drop-off location you can deliver it to. You also can rent a wood-chipper from
many garden or hardware stores and turn your debris into mulch.

2. Rake dead leaves and twigs.

Rake dead leaves and twigs

Last year’s leaves will make great compost, but not if they keep the grass
from absorbing sunlight. Thoroughly rake the yard and garden beds and, if you don’t plan to compost,
investigate whether your town will be making special arrangements to collect bagged leaves.

3. Prune and trim.

Prune and trim

Prune back weatherworn bushes and hedges as well as any perennials that look
overgrown. Trim damaged tree limbs and branches that you can reach, and make arrangements for a
professional tree-trimmer to take care of the rest.

4. Map out landscaping and garden plans.

Map out landscaping and garden plans

If you’re going to make any changes to your current
landscaping, make a sketch of your lawn indicating what sort of trees, shrubs, or plants you’d like to add.
Even for DIY types, it’s always a good idea to consult with a gardener or landscaper at the nursery before
making any final decisions or purchases.

5. Start planting.

Start planting

Check the planting dates on your new purchases. Any plants, trees or shrubbery hearty
enough to survive early spring’s still-cool nights can be put in the ground now.
