Ready to get a jump on your spring home maintenance projects? The following checklist will help you get started.
Inspect home’s exterior for winter storm damage and needed repairs
Flush and inspect gutters & downspouts
Power wash siding, porch, deck, patio, walkways, and driveway
Trim trees/bushes near buildings & power lines; remove dead/damaged branches once new growth is apparent
De-thatch lawn with a good raking prior to first mowing; mow lawn down to 2 inches before grass is over 2 ½ inches tall, leaving no less than ½ inch of growth; lightly apply quality fertilizer with weed killer
