When the sun is out, many homeowners begin working on outdoor projects as it’s the best time of year to do so. Sunshine allows us to work outside, allows the paint to dry fast, and doesn’t pose as many risks compared to other seasonal projects. Read through these improvement projects that homeowners enjoy beginning during the nice weather and the sunshine.
A PowerWash For The Home’s Exterior
A power wash can take years of dirt and filth from your home’s exterior. Sometimes your home will need a power wash so badly, but you won’t even notice because you’re so used to the darker color of your home. Hire a team to come in and take care of your home for an improved look and a clean, fresh appearance.
Tending To The Garden
Tend to the garden when the sun is out so you can see great progress with your plantings. Look into fresh mulch, natural fertilizer, and plants/veggies that are perfect for you. Be sure you have the time/resources to tend to whichever plants you choose. Gardening is great for the nice weather, but if you can’t keep up with your garden regularly, you will be disappointed with your dying plants. Successful gardens require work, maintenance, water, and adjustments as needed.
Tidying The Yard
When the rain holds off and the sun is out, start tidying up the yard, the lawn, mulch beds, driveways, and walkways. The offseason can create quite a mess of your yard and your outdoor living areas. You’ll want to take time getting things in order, pulling weeds, trimming overgrown shrubs, and make sure everything is in order. This will improve the appearance of your yard and home’s exterior, allowing a picturesque view for people in passing and neighbors alike.
Accessorize With Creativity
Yard, home, and lawn accessories can give your home more of an authentic and family feel. With flowers and plants, window boxes, pops of color, flags hanging from the doorway, birdhouses, Adirondack chairs, and other accessories, you can make your yard stand out. Adding multi-dimensional aspects to your home or yard, like masonry and stone detail, can tremendously enhance your aesthetic.
What do you have planned for this season? Are you going to try to add some accessories? Or will you start with a garden or tackle the lawn? When the sun is shining, the possibilities for your home and yard are endless. Get creative with color. Experiment with the set-up of your lawn. With so many awesome home design and décor trends this season, don’t be afraid to try something new this year!
