4. Get some early flowering shrubs and perennial for those areas which lack early color.

5. Feed the plants inside your pond.  If you have a water feature they make tablets for you to feed your plants.

7. Sod dead areas of the lawn rather than seed.  The sod will take faster and the seed has a tough time germinating if we get a cool wet spell.
