Well today is officially the first day of Spring!…now we just need Mother Nature to play along so it actually feels like it.
In Part 1 I shared my Spring cleaning to-do list. In the spirit of full transparency, I will admit is nowhere near done yet. Mark and I still need to pick a day to really knock it out; but I’m telling myself I have plenty of time.
Now that the weather SHOULD be nicer soon, it is almost time to move things outside…
We keep it simple with a combo of fertilizer & weed preventer applied once in the Spring & again in the fall. Our neighbor has an immaculate lawn and there is no use trying to compete with him. As long as I don’t have a yard covered in dandelions I’m happy.
Spruce up flower beds
Pull weeds, prune bushes, apply Preen (weed preventer) add fresh mulch and possibly a few new flowers. It amazes me each year how much of a difference this makes.
Clean off furniture, pull out cushions from storage, clean grill, refill propane tanks, new potted plants, and see what cute new decorations I may come across.
Spray with house wash & clean out dryer vent…not the most glamorous tasks but necessary. I’ll also keep an eye out for a hanging basket & potted plant for the front porch.
Nothing fancy…Sweep, organize, sort out items to donate, store seasonal items.
Anything on your Spring Cleaning to-do list that I missed?
Did you already get a head start?
