It’s almost always easier to do small chores for ten minutes every other day, than to devote an entire Saturday afternoon to back breaking labor. Use the following list to help keep everything looking fresh, trimmed and neat.

Pull up weeds. (10-30 minutes)

Remove dead blooms and leaves from flowers and plants. (10 minutes)
