The days are getting longer and it’s time to get outdoors. How does your house look when you arrive home after work!? Here’s our guide to improving the look of your house. You can do yourself, or call Hire A Tradesman…..
The green green grass of home: Spring means green grass – and lots of it. Because lawns are so active, they need mowing every other week. This is a time consuming task.
Here’s one key tip that will help ensure your fresh mown lawns look better longer:
Many weeds grow faster than your actual lawn. Within days, weeds can quickly make your fresh mown lawn look scrappy. An application of “weed and feed” will help the overall appearance. Be careful, there are different types of “weed and feed” to suit different types of lawn and their weeds. Check the options at your hardware store or call us for advice!
Hit the deck: Cold wet days may result in a build-up of moss, dirt and litter on your deck. These build-ups make your deck look tired, can be slippery and lead to premature rotting.
Each year, you should give you deck a bit of love. If water does not “bead” on your deck, then it’s time to stain or oil it.
Start by giving your deck a thorough clean [high pressure hose or good old elbow grease will do it] and a light sand if needed.
Once dry, apply two coats of decking oil or stain. Then sit back, open a beer and enjoy your “as new” deck. It’s one of life’s great pleasures.
Look at this: The sun is out – and it’s highlighting the grime, dust and marks on your windows. Clean windows give the outside and inside of your home an instant lift. Often windows have difficult access [second story, garden obstructions]. If unsure, always call an expert.
Just a little off the sides: A haircut makes you feel neat and trim. Same applies to your garden. Generally pruning makes plants look neater. Removing branches that may overhand your driveway, house or cover windows will tidy up your home, make it safer and look better.
