Start with the basics
1. The birds are back! Top up your bird feeders to attract winged friends and enjoy the sweet sounds of their chirps as you enjoy your backyard oasis.
2. Rake away old leaves, twigs and debris. Wait until the soil is no longer wet, but get your yard cleaned before spring growth begins.
3. Check your outdoor tools and garden equipment to see if any need replacing. Make sure to inspect the garden hose to ensure it hasn't sprung any leaks.
