We’re almost through April, which means we’re well into spring. You know what that means – spring cleaning. While spring cleaning often refers to deep cleaning your home, there’s an extremely high likelihood that there are some areas outside that could benefit from your attention.
Assess Your Lawn
For many areas, wintertime means your lawn goes into a hibernation of sorts as cold temperatures slow growth. As spring rolls on and temperatures warm up, your lawn begins to wake up. As this happens, it’s important to take some time to assess your lawn and determine what it needs from you to grow healthy this year. According to LawnStarter dead spots may need reseeding or new sod laid down. You’ll need to fertilize it later on in the spring season. Make plans for that, as well as watering and aeration if needed.
Inspect Your Gutters
April showers bring May flowers—or so the saying goes. Spring often brings rainstorms with it, which means you need to make sure your gutters are up to the task of directing water away from your home. According to Pinnacle Roofing , gutters protect your home from water damage, foundation issues, and landscape erosion. Winter storms tend to cause leaves and debris to blow into and accumulate in your gutters. Take some time to inspect your gutters and clean them out where needed. If there is any damage, have it repaired or the gutters themselves replaced.
Deep Clean Your Garage
Depending on the layout of your home, whether or not your garage is an outside area may be up for debate. Still, there’s no doubt that most people’s garages can benefit from some serious deep cleaning. Start by pulling everything out. Clean the space, paying attention to windows and corners that are often hard to get to when everything is in the garage. Once you have the garage cleaned, sort through what you’ve pulled out. There are bound to be things you can get rid of, whether that means throwing them away, donating them, or selling them. For everything you keep, take the time to put it back in an organized fashion. According to Neighbor , there are lots of ways you can organize your garage, so you should be able to find a way to store everything that works for you.
Spring cleaning isn’t just for the inside of your home, it’s also for the outside areas of your property. Your lawn, gutters, and garage are just some of the areas that can likely benefit from a little extra TLC. This year, as you go about fixing up your property after winter, make sure you pay attention to areas outside that could use a little spring cleaning as well.
