REVITALIZE YOUR LAWN
After all the snow has melted and we've had our share this year... it's time to give your lawn a little TLC. Start by raking any branches, dried lawn sheddings, plucking any dead flowers, trimming bushes and getting rid of any leaves, or debris that may have fallen. Once you have a fresh clean slate, the rest if truly easy to tackle.
Give your lawn a mow, water the grass, and lay down some sod if necessary to give your front lawn that fresh look! You can also take it further by planting some flowers [ suitable for time of season] and adding an edge to your flower beds with stones, bricks or rocks. You'll be surprised by what an afternoon and trip to your local Home Depot or Lowe's can do!
GIVE EVERYTHING A QUICK WASH
We all know the damage that salt and ice melt can do to our sidewalks, driveways and home exterior. Clean up the outside with a quick powerwash of the driveway, garage doors, and sidings to help make your home brighter and glisten looking pristine. You may also want to give your doors and windows a good wash during this time as well.
A LITTLE PAINT GOES A LONG WAY!
It's normal to notice a few chips in the paint from the Winter season with all the snow and ice the exterior of our homes have encountered. e sure to give the exterior of your home a quick and efficient overview to see if the garage door or siding of your home needs a new coat of paint. Not only will this elevate the look of your home, but it will also prevent more of the paint from chipping off during the upcoming seasons, saving you time in the long run.
TEND TO ANY ITEMS THAT NEED FIXING
Since you're already in the cleaning vibe, now's the perfect time to fix or update any items that need tending to. This can range from installing new garage doors to replacing your old mailbox, to adding in the new address numbers on the front wall making your home more chic and attractive.
