Your SPRING GARDENING ESSENTIALS check list:
Annuals & Bulbs:
Prolong the flower-power of annuals with regular foliar feeding.
Dead-head spent flower blooms regularly to encourage new flower growth.
Roses & Pruning:

Water lawns (& your entire garden) more regularly. Water for longer periods less frequently. Also make sure to water in the cooler morning or evenings (water evaporations is much higher in the heat of the day).
