Here are 4 ideas that help me stay on track with lawn clutter clearing this spring. I would love to hear and share your ideas too!
- Plan. Plan. Plan. Make a prioritized list of the yard tasks to tackle this season.
- Mentally re-frame the whole thing: Yard work is good physical exercise and a good mental meditative and de-stressing activity.
- Break the big tasks down into smaller ones. I mulch 7 flower beds, but I don't have to do all of them in one day! Step back and celebrate each small success.
- Keep a Yard Folder from year to year: Each year make note of what is planted in each bed, what vegetables worked and didn't work so well in the garden, what the long-term plans are, what tasks got completed...It will be a helpful resource to refer back to!
