Early Spring
1.  Check for signs of Growth.
      Look for early signs of plants budding out and protect them if necessary.
2.  Prep the beds
     Now is the time to clean up your garden beds.  Clear the dead leaves and vegetation and any other derbis that accumulated over the winter.
3.  Prune
     Trim fruit trees before the buds break.  It's also the ideal time to prune flower trees and shrubs.
4.  Perform the Basics
     Check your stonework for damages.  Access the condition of your deck or patio and make repairs.  Clean off outdoor furniture and make sure they are in good repair.
5.  Divide Perennials
     This is a good time to divide your perennials before the spring growth.
6.  Plant Veggies!
     Now is the time to plant your cool season crops; potatoes, lettuce, onions, peas and other greens.

Vegetable Planting Guide
This year's crabgrass comes from the seeds left by last year's crop.  The easiest way to stop crabgrass is to stop the seeds from germinating.  That's where Hi-Yied Crabgrass preventor comes in.  Apply this to your yard In ealy to late March and again 6 weeks later and you will prevent the majority of the crabgrass from sprouting in your yard.  This year keep the crabgrass away with Hi Yield!

Note:  If you are planning on re-seeding or over-seeding your yard, don't use a pre-emergent.  It will stop the germination of your lawn seed just as it does your crabgrass.
