Mark your calendar.  Take a stroll around your yard.  Yep walk the whole thing.  Here is what you are looking for . . .

  1. Dead branches or bushes you need to trim off.
  2. Pull the weeds.
  3. Trim all bushes and trees that are brushing up against your house.
  4. Replace dead plants.
  5. Sprinkle everything with a little fertilizer.
  6. Add a few new plants where you have a bare spot or needs pops of color.

Yippee!  Doesn't your yard look better.
