Whether you have a sprawling property or a small backyard, there’s always some work to be done. Spring is the perfect time to liven up your outdoor space for al fresco dining or a little gardening. No matter how you like to spend your days outside, here are a few projects you’ll want to take care of first.
Check your air conditioner
First things first — check to make sure your air conditioner is in full working order. This simple step often goes unchecked, but you’ll definitely wish you had checked early if your AC does ever go out. If you suspect that there’s an issue, contact a local heating and air company to come take a look. Go Green Heating & Air services or replaces air conditioners in the greater Denver Metro area.
Get your yard ready
It’s time to start making room for all the new growth that comes following April showers. Clean up any debris like fallen twigs and rake leaves to create a clean canvas to work with. After you’ve done that, apply weed killer, pre-emergent, and fertilizer to have your lawn looking like new in no time.
Tune-up your lawn mower
Throughout the spring and summer you’ll want to mow often to keep everything looking nice and trim. If you have a stubborn lawn mower that doesn’t always start when you want it to, it might be time to give it a little tune-up or fully replace it.
Repair your fence
A broken or worn out fence can make even the prettiest landscaping look drab. If your fence isn’t in need of major repair, rent a pressure washer to scrub weather-related wear and tear. Some fences do need to be fully replaced though, and if planks are missing or falling down, it’s time to update. Companies like Ozark Fence can build any kind of fence from traditional wood fences to more unique styles like bamboo, iron, and vinyl.
Plant a garden
Starting a garden can be such a rewarding activity. Spring is the perfect time to plant a fruit and vegetable garden with delicious foods like tomatoes, peppers, or even watermelons. Imagine all the dishes you’ll be able to create with ingredients right at your fingertips.
And after all that hard work, don’t forget to sit back and enjoy your freshened up outdoor space before embarking on a summer full of activities.
