  • Cut dead perennials and tropicals back to the ground.

  • Pick up limbs and remove dead trees and shrubs from the landscape.
  • Trim trees making sure to cut limbs flush with branch collar or next to another limb.
  • Pot amaryllis, paperwhites, and chilled hyacinths for winter bloom.
  • Clean, sharpen and oil garden tools as well as mower blades.
  • Clean gutters.
