Many people think that renting is less expensive than owning their own home. But as it turns out, it’s actually cheaper to pay a monthly mortgage payment than a month’s rent.

Spruce up shrubbery 

Now is a great time to give shrubs a trim, so they look fresh for the season. Avoid trimming the spring bloomers, though. 

Start spring cleaning

When the weather is mild, cleaning out the yard isn’t so bad. Remove debris from drainage ditches, gutters and planting beds, and clear unwanted brush and undergrowth out of your yard. Also cut back dead foliage on last year’s perennials and ornamental grasses before new growth starts.
