It won’t be long till spring is here and all the pretty flowers start to pop up from the ground. We can all start to relax a little bit as the weather warms up. However, this change in the weather is the perfect time to see to your home and carry out any maintenance that may need doing after the winter. Not sure which jobs you need to do now that winter is drawing to an end? .
Revamp the outside from the inside!
I love a bit of a revamp for spring. Perhaps things about how to bring pastels into your home. I have been thinking about getting some made to measure blinds at the moment and how they give a mediterainian feel to homes. Some blue pastel would make your home exterior look nice and bright. If you have blinds already think about a light varnish or a fresh lick of paint.
Clear Your Garden
There won’t be many plants and flowers that will have survived in your garden over winter. All of the ones that were blooming through summer and autumn will have probably died so you will need to dig up all the dead plants and clear them out of our garden. If you have a compost bin, you should add them to that to create more. Once your garden is completely clear, it will be worth spreading some compost onto the soil to add plenty of nutrients ready for when you start to sow new seeds in spring.
Any paintwork on the exterior of your home might have got chipped over winter, especially if the weather has been bad. To improve it, simply scrape off any flakey, old paint, and then repaint with a couple of layers of fresh paint. It’s worth waiting for a few sunny days to do this to make sure that rain doesn’t spoil your fresh paint job. While you are doing this, take a look at your window frames. If you notice any holes and gaps in them, you should think about replacing them. Otherwise, you could find pests and vermin in your house this summer!
