How can I start a new perennial garden?

QUESTION: I want to totally renovate a couple of perennial beds this year. How should I go about it to minimize stress on the flowers? The flowers include roses, Lillies, clematis, phlox, black eye Susan's, coreopsis, hibiscus. I would also like to add a medium size, well behaved tree and would like some good ideas. Thanks, Gwen.................ANSWER: Renovating a garden can be a challenge as there are a number of plants that have different requirements. It also depends on your definition of renovation.
