7 tasks to tackle in your yard & garden during spring

April 20, 2017

Spring is here and the buds and blooms are bursting forth. Wisconsinites wait for spring all winter long and look forward to spending time in the garden and yard during our short summers.  Now is the time to get busy in the garden and yard, preparing for the growing season.

Take care of these tasks on a nice spring weekend:

  • Cut down spent perennials like sedum and ornamental grasses
  • Remove any over-winter mulch on plantings
  • Till the garden plot
  • Plant cold weather veggies such as peas, lettuce, onions
  • Get on top of weeds before they take over
  • Replace drab, faded mulch with bright new for a pop of color
  • Power up the lawn mower to make sure it is ready to do its job
