Spring is here. Everyone is busy getting things done ! On our limitless list of things to do,
what is worth your time ?
Re-Staining Your Deck- “Re-staining doesn’t just make your deck look better. It also puts a protective coating on the wood that can prevent mildew, cracks and warping. If your deck has a transparent stain, gets excessive sun, or sees heavy traffic, re-stain it once a year. If its gets plenty of shade, you can probably wait up to five years. Either way, it’s the kind of job you can tackle yourself. Plan to do it on a weekend when the forecast calls for dry weather and temperatures between 50 degrees and 90 degrees F.
Mulching flower beds every spring – “This is an easy weekend DIY with long lasting rewards. Mulch helps prevent weeds, retains water for plants and looks and smells great. Use a tool like a steel mulch fork to put down the mulch right over your existing soil, then spread it around evenly with a metal rake until the layer is two to four inches thick. ”
