While it is still the middle of winter, the days do feel like they’re getting longer. We’ve reached the point where the sun lasts a little longer each day before getting dark, and there is that hope in the air that spring isn’t that far off. What this means is that it’s the perfect time to start planning your outdoor spring project to-do list. There are always going to be the typical items on the list, but this year you may wish to make some changes, upgrades, and renovations that will add to your enjoyment of your outdoor space.
Here’s a look at some outdoor home projects that can be worth tackling this spring.
Build a Deck or Patio
If you don’t yet have a deck or patio in your yard, this spring may be the perfect time to remedy that situation. A deck or patio can act as the perfect area for relaxing and entertaining. You have plenty of decking materials to choose from, designs, and styles giving you the freedom to choose something that works for your lifestyle and budget.
Getting this project done in early spring means you’ll have plenty of time to enjoy it this year.
Invest in New Outdoor Furniture
One of the best ways to enjoy the outdoors is with comfortable outdoor furniture. There’s no reason you have to go with the standard table and chairs if that’s not your style; nowadays you can find all kinds of trendy, stylish, and versatile options. Take, for example, an sectional outdoor couch that expands your seating and yet provides all the comfort of an indoor couch.
Make the Switch to Seamless Gutters
Here’s a project that is absolutely perfect for the spring, allowing you to improve the aesthetics and functionality of the gutters. If your home has the traditional sectional gutters then you have probably noticed such issues as seams that don’t match up or look clean, debris that builds up in the joints, issues with the color matching perfectly between sections, water leaks at the joints, and more.
Installing seamless gutters will address all these issues and more, as they have very minimal maintenance, are easy to install, can reduce the price of repairs, and are incredibly long-lasting.
Plant a Vegetable and Herb Garden
With so many people spending more time than usual at home in 2020 there was a whole new appreciation for gardening, in particular vegetable and herb gardens. There’s no reason that has to end, as you may want a more permanent garden that is dedicated to your vegetable and herb crop.
If you’re looking for low maintenance relatively easy-to-grow vegetables you can try green beans, bell peppers, spinach, carrots, tomatoes, lettuce, and cucumbers. As for herbs, beginner-friendly ones include sage, mint, oregano, rosemary, basil, fennel, chives, and parsley.
It’s Time to Get Your List Made
Whether you choose one or all of the projects mentioned here, this is the perfect time to start working on your to-do list so you can plan how to best use your time once the weather starts getting better.
