5 Pre-Spring Checklist To-Dos:
Transition Your Front Porch And Entryway
With the chill in the air subsiding and your need for winter clothes diminishing, you can start to put away gloves, mittens, and scarves and replace them with umbrellas, gardening boots, gloves, and tools for easy access. If your doormat is one for wear, replace it with an updated version that highlights your aesthetic.
Refresh Your Outdoor Living Space
There’s a good chance that your patio furniture has seen better days. Take a weekend and clean cushion covers, powerwash chairs, tables, and your deck to wipe away the dirt, dust, and grime, returning your lovely items to their original glory.
Update Or Build A Garden
March is the perfect time to make plans for a dedicated green space to grow vegetables. Be sure to consider the location and the sun exposure before breaking ground. Research the crops you want to plant so you know which varieties can tolerate the last remaining cold nights and light freezes, such as broccoli, cabbage, kale, beans, and peas, to name a few.
There’s something so special about picking fresh peaches, apples, raspberries, limes, lemons, and the list goes on from your very own fruit tree. For many saplings, the perfect time to plant is late winter and early spring. This should make for an abundance of picking during the summer months and will add a lovely addition to your table with a variety of naturally delicious sweet treats.
Break out shovels, rakes, and gloves and prepare to get a little dirty because this is the perfect time to re-energize the soil and prep the flower bed for plants such as gardenias, azaleas, and lily bulbs. Clear out weeds, creeping grass, leaves, and sticks, so you have a clean canvas to create your new spread of flourishing blooms that will be a delight to view in late spring and summer.
