As the warmth of spring unfurls around us, it’s the perfect time to rejuvenate our homes and gardens after the long winter. From awakening the lawn to refreshing indoor spaces, here's your comprehensive guide to everything you should do for your home this spring.

1. Sprinkler System Activation:

The arrival of spring marks the ideal time to start up your sprinkler system from winterization.

Reviving your lawn after the long winter months is a priority task for many homeowners. Start by raking away any debris and thatch, which can impede new growth. Overseeding bare patches will help replenish your lawn's lushness, while applying a balanced fertilizer can provide the necessary nutrients for vibrant greenery. Remember to mow regularly, adjusting the height to gradually lower as the season progresses. If you need lawn care assistance, these local companies do a wonderful job.

Consider adding some outdoor lighting to create a welcoming ambiance for gatherings.

Happy Spring everyone!
