As the flowers and trees bloom in spring and we shed our winter boots for sandals (or snow shovels for rakes!), we also need to think about spring cleaning and maintenance. The winter thaw brings new tasks in order to get a home and yard ready to be enjoyed in the warmer spring and summer months. And, while we get it, you’d rather just get outside and enjoy the beautiful weather, it also helps to get these tasks out of the way before the summer season arrives. Just think, get them done now and you can grill with friends, relax on your lawn chair and hit the beach.
To help you organize your to-do list, the writers at realtor.com have put together this handy home maintenance checklist for May. Are the following items on your spring to-do list?
- Inspect brick and stone patios and walkways
- Feed your lawn
- Repair wood fences and gates
- Mulch flower and vegetable beds
- Wash windows
- Get your grill in gear
- Make sure your AC is cool
Be sure to check out realtor.com’s post which includes useful tips for tackling these tasks in time for summer.
