Edge the borders of your landscape beds. This will bring shape and redefine the landscape beds from the lawn. Remove any leaves and big branches, pinecones, acorns, weeds and rotted mulch! Prune what has not been cut back already to have new growth

2. Do your plants have winter damage

Spring Lawn Care Tips; What do you need to do this spring for a successful lawn

After clearing the landscaping beds of debris make sure to inspect your plant material for any winter damage. Anything that is broken needs to be carefully pruned off. Do you have any dead spots on evergreen trees and shrubs. Deciduous trees and shrubs are inspected for buds to make sure they have wintered over.

4. Organic Fertilizer to your plants

After property maintenance has been taken care of apply an organic fertilizer to all landscape plants. Be sure to sprinkle the fertilizer around the base of your plants, not directly on them. Spread an organic pre-emergent weed control product in the beds to stop any weed seeds from germinating.

5. Apply organic mulch

Apply a fresh layer of organic mulch. Organic mulches include shredded bark, wood chips, pine straw, sawdust and shredded leaves to name a few. This will improve its structure. They cover the soil and help smother weeds, reducing time spent pulling them. Perhaps the biggest benefit of mulches is that they help keep the soil cool and moist during summer months, reducing watering needs and avoiding drought stress.
