Now that the snow is finally gone we can accomplish more winter maintenance tasks.
1. ornamental grass cutback. Once the snow bends the grasses out of shape, it's OK to cut them back.
2. Sedums can be flush cut.
3. remove any dead tree branches
4. shear Spireas down to low mounds
5. stake any shrubs beat up by snow
