Decide what you want to grow and where you want to plant it. Draw up a simple diagram or map of your garden so you can keep track of what goes where.
Remove any dead leaves, branches, and debris that have accumulated over the winter. This will help your garden breathe and prepare it for new growth.
Add some compost. Compost is full of nutrients that will help your plants grow strong and healthy.
This year we will be using a weed barrier fabric to prevent that before it happens this year. The long we tend the spot for the garden the better it will become. It is still a new garden lot.
