Spring has sprung which means it’s time for Spring Cleaning! Give your home the refresh it deserves. These four projects are easy, affordable ways to sustain, and even add value to your home.

  1. Landscaping

Updating your landscape is a classic spring project. Whether you need to start from scratch or do some light trimming and clean-up, putting effort into your greenscape will make a huge difference in the appearance of your home. Now is also a great time to consider outdoor lighting for entertaining spaces so you can enjoy them to the fullest.

  1. Windows

Interior windows typically get cleaned throughout the year, but exterior window cleaning often gets neglected. On a cloudy day, grab your cleaning supplies, a ladder, and a buddy and get to work. Your streak and dirt-free windows will leave your home sparkling and allow more natural light to flow into your home.

  1. Paint

Elevate your space with a fresh coat of paint. Light and airy colors can help make your home feel larger, while darker and earthy tones provide a memorable and moody vibe for your space. Your home tells your story and updating your paint colors can help complete your interior design narrative.

  1. Detail Updates

Out with the old and in with the new is easier said than done, however, there are some small projects that will help make your space feel brand new. Swapping cabinet hardware is a simple and inexpensive way to update your kitchen or bathroom. If you’re feeling ambitious, build a fire pit to create a space outdoors to make memories. Small changes can make a big difference! 

The hardest part of spring cleaning is starting! Get inspired and start your next home project to truly bring out the best your space has to offer.

epic landscapeMulch is a wonderful addition to any landscape.  A mulch layer around trees and shrubs provides many benefits.

♦ Helps maintain soil moisture.   Mulch slows evaporation and reduces the amount of water that is needed by the plants.
♦ Inhibits weeds.  It is almost impossible to keep weeds out of bedding areas without some type of mulch covering.
♦ Helps maintain soil temperature.  Mulch keeps the plants’ roots warmer in the winter and cooler in the summer.
♦ Adds Beauty.  Mulch gives planting beds a neat and uniform appearance.  Its color and textures compliments the plants and the house.
♦ Reduces soil erosion.  Water running off the house or from adjacent areas can create a lot of soil erosion.  Mulch will decrease the amount of soil lost.
♦ Improves the soil.  Any organic mulch will decompose over time.  This will increase the soil’s fertility and improve the soil’s texture and drainage.
♦ Provides protection.  Having a layer of mulch around plants and trees will protect them from lawnmowers and string trimmers.
