U of I Extension's Richard Hentschel discusses many of the early yard clean-up projects that can be done while we wait for the real spring weather. Early lawn clean-up with a leaf rake can take a while if you have a large yard. Uncovering spring bulbs and tender perennials is another activity that can be done, just do it slowly over a couple of weekends to allow plants to adjust. Also, don't forget about repairing any rabbit damaged shrubs while the landscape plants are dormant.
Green Side Up is a gardening program produced by University of Illinois Extension. It is hosted by Richard Hentschel, Extension Educator, Horticulture.
