Spring Clean-Up Checklist

A fresh edge and mulch makes your gardens look great.

Here are a few ideas to create a fresh, clean look for your gardens.

Prep landscape flower beds

  • Blow out the leaves and light debris, remove garbage, twigs, and weeds in the garden beds.

Edge landscape flower beds

  • Put a fresh edge on all the beds based on your preference and always contact MISS DIG for safety.

Mulch the landscape  flower beds

  • Choose the type of mulch you prefer, 4 Seasons Outdoors usually recommends hard wood, double-processed mulch throughout all gardens.
  • Mulch behind bushes and hard-to-reach places. Put a fresh topping of mulch in all the beds, approximately two inches deep to keep weeds under control and dispose of all debris we collected.
