There is a lot to look forward to as we get closer to spring. The weather is slowly getting warmer, the days are gradually getting longer, and we are all itching to get outside. If you can’t wait to embrace all that spring has to offer, take a look at some of these DIY projects you can do to your home.
The drab of winter can leave you and your home feeling a little dull. One way to show off your personal style and brighten up your home is to add a pop of color to your front door. It’s a relatively small project that does not require a large time commitment, so feel free to experiment with as many colors as you want! If you have a neutral or light-colored house, the options are truly unlimited. You can pair the new color with an updated doormat, fresh flowers, a nice garden flag, and more.
Fertilizing your lawn promotes new growth and healthy roots that could have been weakened due to the winter weather. Determine what kind of grass you have or would like to add to your yard and plant seeds either by hand or with a spreader. A good tip is to overseed your lawn to create sturdy turf. You can also pull the weeds from your garden beds and add nutrient-dense soil to grow healthy and beautiful flowers and plants. You might even add a layer of mulch to prevent new weeds from growing, and control the temperature of your garden beds.
Early spring is a great time to grow flowers and vegetables. If you are looking to add some color to your flower boxes, plant daffodils, peonies, and delphinium. The bright hues will add life to your yard and can provide significant curb appeal to your home. March is the perfect time to add new veggies to your garden as well. Dill, potatoes and carrots grow best when they are sown directly in the garden in early March because they do not like the summer heat. They will grow well until the temperatures hit around 80 degrees.
If you like having friends and family over for outdoor activities, nothing is better for entertaining like a fire pit. It is possible to build a fire pit on a budget in as little as one weekend, especially if you happen to have some leftover stones from a recent home renovation project. Determine how big you want your fire pit, where you want it in your yard, and how you want to use the space. This stunning feature will be the highlight of your yard, but if you’re not interested in a fire pit you can repurpose stones in other creative ways as well.
Spring marks the beginning of outdoor activities, which means you need to stock up on all your supplies. Grab some propane for the grill, fluff your outdoor pillows, and light the insect-repelling candles so you are ready for anything. You can also pick up some bubbles, chalk, or other outdoor toys so your little ones can enjoy the great outdoors as well.
