Are you already fed up with the cold and rainy weather of fall? Are you looking forwards to the sunshine returning, the birds singing, and the flowers blooming?
You are looking forwards to spring.
Spring may seem like a long way off, but if you’ve got some house maintenance that needs doing, it’s best to start planning now so that you can save up the money and gather your supplies over the next few months in order to have everything ready in the spring.
Here are our top DIY projects for your home in the spring so that you can get right to work when the sun comes out!
This is a pretty basic but important project that you should start early on, especially if you have an older home or one that was built with less-than-ideal insulation in mind. Your windows and doors should be relatively weatherproof for the whole year, and even if it’s cold outside, they should close perfectly and seal completely against the elements without any drafts getting inside.
This is a surefire way to get rid of annoying pests at once, so you don’t have to spend a lot of time and energy trying to contain a problem pest in your house.
These pests will likely be one of the worst offenders in terms of harming your home, so fix them quickly and easily by applying Termite Treatment or laying traps now before they start breeding in the spring.
Spring is when your garden is going to start looking really good, but it’s also the perfect time for outdoor maintenance. You should start preparing your garden early, in the winter, by ensuring the soil in your garden is free of pests. If you’re not leaving it tidy from now onwards, then chances are you won’t be able to handle it when spring comes along.
You can also cut down on weeds by switching to organic gardening products, which will help to control the size of your weeds in the spring after the flowering season. You can also dig up old stalks or replace them with new ones if they are becoming too high.
To get a good mulch cover, rake up the fall leaves and leave them on your vegetable and flower beds now for excellent soil health.
Cleaning out your garage is a great project that you should definitely start on now. If you haven’t been regularly cleaning out your garage during the winter, chances are there will be a build-up of dust and dirt from the car, furniture, and whatever else you may have been storing in there.
Start on this project now to ensure it’s completely tidy for spring. If you’re targeting a particular area, just start with a vacuum cleaner to get rid of the dust and then get a stiff broom or brush to clean any residual dirt that’s left.
You can also use a vacuum plus some compressed air to eliminate any dirt in those nooks and crannies so that it looks neater once finished.
