Well the snow recedes and OH NO!!! Everything from lawns, fallen trees, broken eves trough, decks and on and on need attention.
Stay organized and list the items that require immediate attention.
1) Broken eves troughs is one of the first things that needs attention because the water pouring on the deck and over the grass can lead to clean up being done twice if we get heavy rains. Get the eves repaired first and make sure they are draining well away from foundations and have a disbursement system at the downspout to prevent erosion of the lawn or soil.
2) Clean up fallen tree branches and leaves that are on the lawn, flower beds or on the natural state grounds surrounding a home or cottage. Having the natural debris cleaned up promotes the new growth of grass and natural vegetation to keep things green and clean, not musty and moldy.
3) Clean off the deck with a pressure washer or a good hand scrubbing to remove the mold and sediment build up from the winter months. It will keep the deck from premature rot as well as giving a more not slip surface to walk on.
4) Rake the lawn or surrounding grounds to even out the vole holes and clean up pet droppings to promote new growth to cover the earth that otherwise will become muddy and track indoors.
These things completed and everything is ready for the outdoor furniture to be placed and enjoyed.
