- It's never too soon to get a head start on weeding. The early spring ground is usually moist and weeds come out easily.
- You'll be tempted, but leave the dried up foliage by your perennials alone, at least for the time being. I like to wait until early May to remove foliage, just to be safe.
- Get your garden shed or cabinet in order and replenish any supplies you are missing.
- Trim ornamental grasses back before new growth appears, leaving about 4-6" of height.
- Check on each plant so you can stomp down any mole holes, add dirt where rabbits made burrows, and fill in areas where the deer have left sunken-in footprints.
