What's brewing this week in spring odds and ends to do?

This has to be my favorite time of year. I think I say that everytime the season starts changing. Be that as it may, the weather is warming up enough outside to start thinking of fixing things, yardwork, landscaping, and getting your pool ready. Did you know that landscaping can add 7-15% to your home's value? So, here are some simple things to get started.
  • Replace your porch light with a new fixture that compliments your home's style.
  • A new mailbox and handsome street numbers will yield a great return on investment, plus just looks nicer.
  • Keep shrubs trimmed, add color with plants and keep the soil free of weeds with mulch or ground cover.
  • Give your front door a fresh coat of contrasting paint or stain. Paint the trim if you have a tight budget.
  • Make sure the walkways are in good condition and free of cracks. Paint or stain concrete walks, steps and porches.

Until next time have a great week and God Bless
