Spring time is almost here and over the last few days we have had a taste of the warmer weather to come in the next few months. Spring is always a great time to refresh your life and the home too, and this year there are a few simple things you can do in your home to get it ready for the warmer weather and longer days.
Open the windows
The first thing you can think about doing now that the spring season is upon us is to make the most of milder conditions and open up those windows. Our homes can get pretty stuffy and stale during the winter because we often hibernate and settle in our nest, so once the spring comes around it is a good idea to get some air flow my through and let that fresh spring air in.
Have a clear out
After the festive season you will likely have a lot of things which you no longer need and a lot of items piled up in the spare room. Now is the perfect time for you to start going through the things in your home to make some space and make the home feel fresh and new. If you haven’t used the item for over a year, do you really need it? Clearing out the home will not only give the space a new lease of life but it will enable you to redecorate and have some fun with the space.
Clean the gutter
During the winter months especially, the weather can be pretty unpredictable and you will often have wind and storms to contend with on a daily basis. When you have a lot of stormy days, this can cause leaves and debris to build up in your gutter and this can in turn cause damage to the home. Now that the weather is a little more forgiving it’s a good idea for you to clear out the gutter and make sure it is working. You can also consider hiring a company like PH Roofing to freshen up the roof and get it ready for the sunny days ahead.

Plant some seeds
Spring and summer are known for being colourful and full of life, and one of the main things which we can do to get ready for these seasons is to plant some seeds. As soon as the weather starts to perk up and become warmer it is the ideal time to sow some seeds in the garden and get ready for everything to spring to life. Plants such as marigolds and pansies are ideal for your plant beds and they will effortlessly make your garden bloom and shine.
Wash the patio
Once the warmer months approach us, it is the ideal time for us to play around with our garden and prepare it for summer days sunbathing and grilling up a storm on the barbecue. A quick way to refresh the garden is to break out the pressure washer and your patio and paving. It will instantly make the space feel fresher.
