Plan and Prep

  • If you are thinking of adding to your garden or patio this is a good time to do research on plants. What is their mature size, sun and water requirements, bloom color and season?
  • You can start preparing spring flower and vegetable beds. Refresh existing soil by mixing in a few inches of Tanks Compost or Happy Frog Soil Conditioner.


  • If you want to move a shrub or cactus to a different part of the yard now is a good time to do so. Keep as much of the root ball intact as possible. Once it is in its new home apply either B-1 or Fertilome root stimulator to abate transplant shock.


  • Weeds: Continue to pull weeds while they are small. You can also start applying Amaze Pre-Emergent.
  • Irrigation: Check for leaks and broken emitters. Be prepared to switch to a spring watering schedule.
