Springtime Spruce Up

It would seem that Spring has finally arrived, and that makes it the perfect time spruce up your yard and home now, enabling you to better enjoy the warmer, sunnier months ahead. So, just in case you’re still trying to clear the wintertime brain fog, here are a few ideas to get you started!

Clear debris
If you didn’t rake leaves in the fall, now’s the time. Raking and clearing your yard and garden beds of old leaves, vines and other debris helps you prepare for mulch and compost. Leaves and old plants can harbor disease and smother your other plants.

Add compost and mulch
Once you’ve removed yard debris, add valuable nutrients to your garden and lawn by applying a layer of compost. Then add a layer of mulch to seal in moisture, prevent weed growth and protect against erosion, and it also gives your gardens and trees a landscaped appearance.

Start seeds
Tomato and pepper seeds can be started indoors and then planted outside after the weather warms. These summer harvest vegetables will need about 6-10 weeks to germinate. If you’re storing flower bulbs indoors, you can transplant them to the garden as well.

Let the Sunshine In

Nothing lifts the spirits quite like a roof full of sunshine! So what are you waiting for? Throw open those curtains, spend a few minutes cleaning the windows, and start enjoying that warm springtime sun!

Get Cleaning

One of the downsides to letting all that sunshine into your home, is seeing all the dust and dirt that’s collected all winter long. But have no fear, all you need is a bucket, some good all-purpose cleaner, a rag, along with some elbow grease, and you can turn the winter dinge into spring shine!

So what are you waiting for? Get out there and tackle these projects, and get spring off to a great start! You’ll be glad you did, when the summer months get here, and you’re ready to enjoy them to their fullest! Need some help getting started? Stop in today, and let us help you get rolling!
