3 Tips For Doing Spring Cleaning Around Your Property

Tips For Spring Cleaning

If you’re starting to feel like spring is in the air where you live, it might be time to get out of the house and start preparing your property for the warmer weather of spring and summer. Winter weather can be hard on the exterior of your home and the landscaping around your property. Because of this, it’s wise to get started on these projects early in the spring.

To help you in doing this, here are three tips for doing spring cleaning around your property. 

Focus On The Exterior Of The Home Itself

Wind, snow, and rain can cause a mess of the exterior of your home and your outdoor living areas. So to make sure that everything gets cleaned up and ready for outdoor use as the weather warms, you’ll want to spend some time focusing on the exterior of your home when you’re cleaning. 

To start with, you should take a look at your roof and the gutters along the roof’s edge. Spring time often brings more rain showers, and you’ll want to make sure you don’t have any leaking through the roof or water accumulating where it shouldn’t due to your gutters not functioning as they should. Additionally, you can clean the outside of your home’s windows, pressure wash the siding and doors of your home, and clean off your deck or patio so that you can bring back out your furniture and other accessories. 

Get Rid Of Anything Dead

Along with cleaning your home, you’ll also want to take a look around the landscaping of your property and get rid of anything that may not have made it through the winter months. This could include clearing brush that may have blown into your yard, cutting back trees and shrubs that you didn’t get to in the fall, and picking up other items that are littering your yard. 

Depending on how the weather went for you in the winter, you might have fall leaves, pinecones, or pine needles that you need to get rid of as well. And if there are plants that you don’t want to try to bring back to life in the spring and summer, now is a good time to get rid of those, too. 

Ready Your Garden Beds

Early spring is the perfect time to ready any garden beds that you have around your property so that you can be ready to start planting as soon as you’re able. You’ll want to wait to plant until after the last freeze happens, but you can spend the time before that clearing out the beds, mulching, tilling the ground, and more. 

If you’re ready to do a bit of spring cleaning around your property, consider using the tips mentioned above to help you focus your efforts.
