I was listening to your podcast on the way to work this week and thinking about my upcoming garden in Ohio. I thought it would be helpful to know what to work on in my yard in each season to keep it maintained year-round.
Spring yard maintenance
This is the time when your garden wakes up! Here’s what you need to do:
If low fertility or compacted
If soil exposed
If dead material
If plants need pruned. It is best to prune before growth begins.
If you need to replace or add new plants to the garden. Fall is generally the best time for this. Early spring before major growth is next best.
Summer yard maintenance
Relax. You already have your first working day for the year completed.
