Early Spring Gardening Checklist

Hudson's Hardware Early Spring Gardening

The end of winter is a great time to start thinking about what you want your garden to look like this Spring. We understand that it can be overwhelming to start tackling all the work that comes with getting your garden back in shape, so we’ve come up with a short checklist to help you get your garden as prepared as possible for Springtime!

1. Don’t Forget To Prune Your Trees & Shrubs.

Taking the time to prune your trees and shrubs during the colder months can actually help your plants thrive by Springtime. Pruning is a lot easier to manage in the colder months since nothing is in bloom which makes it the perfect time to take advantage! 

2. Clean Up & Refresh Your Lawn. 

During the winter, there’s usually a lot of leftover debris like dead leaves and sticks that have covered your yard. Take some time to go out and clear up your yard and any garden beds you may have. Don’t forget to observe your lawn and look for any areas that need to be re-seeded before mowing. You can also take this time to refresh your lawn by adding a fresh layer of mulch or straw to revive it. 

3. Get a Head Start On Weeding. 

It’s never too early to start eliminating those pesky weeds from your beautiful lawn and garden. This month, walk around your yard and start pulling up any young, sprouting weeds that you see. We also carry pre-emergent which is used as a barrier to prevent weeds from taking over your lawn. Stop by Hudson’s Hardware and let our lawn and garden experts help you with the right plan so you can have the best lawn in the neighborhood! 

4. Let Us Service Your Outdoor Equipment.
