With the warm weather here, it won’t be long before you want to fire up the grill and hit the pool! But before summer really heats up, there are some important projects you need to tackle.
- Give your lawn some love. Sure, it may look healthy right now, but that’s thanks to Mother Nature. Now is the ideal time to fertilize your lawn – it loves nutrients and it will help suppress weeds in the summer.
- Pave the way to a nice summer. Give your brick and stone paving materials a thorough inspection – pry up and replace bad pavers and repair hardscape surfaces. With the soil being soft, now is the perfect time.
- Much ado about mulch. Prevent weeds and evaporation by giving all your plant beds at least 2 inches of mulch. Sure, it takes some work but you will love the results all summer long.
- Make sure your AC is “All Clean”. Change your filter and hose down the exterior to remove any dust (which can affect performance) but be careful – you don’t want to damage or bend the fins.
