Outdoor Springtime Maintenance Tasks to Tackle This Month

Good news, spring has officially arrived in most areas around the country! Bad news, winter was likely rough on the exterior of your home. 

Handyman Connection of Carmel offers a wide variety of handyman services to help keep your home in tip-top shape from the inside out. But if your home’s exterior could use a little sprucing up, here are a few must-do springtime maintenance projects to start with.

1. Clear the Flower Beds

Clearing out your flower beds is a great way to give your landscaping a fresh start as you head into warmer weather – just remember to wear protective gloves to protect from spiny weeds and other rough terrains!

2. Fix Wooden Deck Railings and Stairs

Cold weather can really take its toll on wooden decks. If the snow and ice loosened your railings or stair boards or made them creaky or splintery, consider calling a handyman expert for deck repairs.

3. Power Wash the Driveway

Winter has a way of caking concrete driveways, steps, porches, and sidewalks with dirt and grime from months of slush, salt, and melting snow. Spring is the perfect time to power wash it all away (or better yet, hire a handyman to do it for you). 

4. Wash the Windows

Get out the hose and bucket! What better way to give your exterior a deep clean than to scrub your windows clean of all that wintry grime? 

5. Fill in Bare Spots with Grass Seed

If your little ones’ sled rides took a patch or two out of the lawn over winter break, lightly rake the bare spot and throw grass seed over top. If it’s a high-traffic spot, you may want to put a barrier around to protect the seeds while they take. 

6. Re-paint the Siding

Siding colors can fade over time as UV rays from the sun wear away at the pigment within them. Have a handyman pro tackle your home’s exterior painting to give it a whole new look as you head into summer. 

7. Repair Damaged Fencing

Whether you have a metal chain-link fence or a wooden privacy fence, winter can take a toll on fences and barriers of all shapes and sizes. In addition to the many handyman services we offer, Handyman Connection of Carmel also offers expert fence repair services
