RENO, NV - With a warming trend forecast this week, some businesses are ready to help you get your home and yard ready for the season.
At Rail City Garden Center, spring is in bloom. Owner Pawl Hollis said now is the time to plant tomatoes.
"This happens to be a goliath, but I've got about twenty different varieties that I grew... put them in this wall of water," he said.
Hollis also said to consider giving your trees some fertilizer.
Jim Walker of Jet Plumbing, Heating, Air Conditioning and Drain Services said it's time to get that lawn going. He said your spring checklist should include de-winterizing your sprinklers.
"Even if it drops below thirty-two, if it's not sustained, it usually doesn't cause any problems," he said.
If you want to do some spring cleaning, the Lockwood landfill is offering to take junk and trash for free on select days.
