It's too early to plant, but this is a great time to begin planning lawn and landscaping projects. Inventory of your property and determine the health of trees, shrubs, and lawn. Clean up any debris left over from winter storms.
Prune broken limbs. Make a clean cut that will make it harder for insects and diseases to enter the stressed plant. Don't paint pruning cuts. It's an old wive's tale that tar on cuts prevents disease and rot.
Remove fallen debris and limbs from around your plants, so insects and diseases won’t be attracted to that area.
