As we get ready to say goodbye to the dark chilly days of Winter and start to get ready for Spring, it’s time to start thinking about your outdoor warmer-weather checklist. Here are some tips to prepare your home for the warmer weather ahead:
Clean Your Gutters & Windows
Winter storms can cause debris to build up in your gutters which can lead to bigger issues. Once these are cleaned out, you’ll also want to inspect for any leaks or cracks to ensure that they are working properly when those spring showers start to hit.
Similarly, windows can accumulate dirt or streaks over the course of the Winter, so you’ll want to clean both the inside and outside to allow as much sunlight to enter your home as possible. Also, remember to switch to screens so that you can open them up to let some fresh air into the home.
A well-kept lawn & landscaping can draw a lot of eyes to your home. Start by prepping your flower beds and lawn, then make sure your irrigation and sprinkler system are operating properly. Our partners at Rain Rite Inc can help you with all your needs.
A big trend we’re seeing is people switching to synthetic turf. Our partners at TurfTek USA do an amazing job installing turf that looks and feels like real grass, plus it looks amazing all year round. And it saves you time & money in the long run.
Another popular trend this year is adding landscape lighting, which adds a nice touch to your yard even after the sun goes down. Not only does it help with safety & security but it’s great for entertaining outside. Our friends at Lite Rite NY will be happy to assist you with any of your outdoor lighting needs.
Get Ready to Entertain
Lastly, after months of being stuck inside its time to get out and enjoy the company of friends. First, make sure to clean your backyard or patio furniture considering it has most likely either been exposed to the elements or collecting dust in your garage. If you own a deck, we recommend giving it a quick power wash and even resealing to give it a fresh look.
