Seven things to do for your garden now



Kill existing weeds

It is best to kill weeds (you can use Round Up) a couple of weeks prior to the time you'd like to mulch.

Do all of your trimming.

There is usually debris produced when trimming your bushes and trees.

Clean out all of your mulch beds.

You'll want to rake out any dead leaves, weeds and any debris produced from trimming.

Rake your lawn and garden.

Make sure that you cultivate any compacted soil. This allows moisture and air to get down to the roots of your plants a lot easier.

Be edgy.

This is a great time to edge your beds to have a clean look when you are done.

Use a pre-emergent.

This step is important for the upkeep of your mulch beds. Using Preen to prevent future weeds from germinating will help you minimize your weeds throughout the season.

Choose your mulch.

There are many different types of mulch. Make sure that you choose one that is best for your plant material and one that enhances your landscaping. The experts at Beauchamp Garden Center in Ottawa Lake, Mich. can help you choose from a wide variety of mulch. They are receiving daily shipments of flowers, trees, shrubs, landscape supplies, and garden décor for spring and summer.
