What Will You Tackle on the First Day of Spring?: 5 Fresh Ideas to Welcome Warmer Weather

It’s almost the first day of Spring! With warmer days and sunlight ahead, you’re probably looking forward to spending more time outdoors enjoying your yard and the activities you love.

So, what are you waiting for? Go ahead, and get started!

1. Aerate your lawn.

Make this the year that your lawn inspires the neighbors. Start by aerating. Aeration creates small holes in your lawn so air, water and nutrients can access the roots. For more details, check out our how-to aeration guide.

2. Tune up your lawn mower

3. Clean your patio and set up the grill and lawn furniture.

After a winter full of snow and grime, you’ll definitely want to clean off the patio, deck furniture and grill before throwing your first backyard barbeque of the season. You can save time and energy by using a pressure washer for all three of the cleaning chores. Check out our previous posts for more tips on pressure washing your grill and deck.

4. Plant spring flowers
Take creative control of your yard with some new landscaping projects. Added bonus: it’s a great way to get the entire family involved outside. For some inspiration, Better Homes & Gardens has a list of 21 flowers to plant in Spring.

5. Get outside
Whether starting on yard projects or just getting outside now is the time to start enjoying the great outdoors, especially if you’ve been couped up all winter!
