Since the end of January, Fifthroom.com has been helping you prepare for springtime! I’ve talked about the details required for your outdoor project, highlighted some of our products to help you make your decision, and given you outdoor project advice. With spring less than a week away, I’ve decided to create a Springtime Preparation Checklist for you and your outdoor project! Let’s jump into it!
You’re prepared for a change in good or bad weather. Although the first day of spring starts on March 20, it’s important to be aware that bad weather can still occur. We’re hoping that Winter Storm Stella is the last big snow that happens this year, but it’s best to be prepared for anything. If good weather occurs, then take advantage of it! After being cooped up inside all winter, it feels wonderful to go out and enjoy the warm sunshine of Spring!
Your yard is ready for spring. A few weeks ago, I talked about outdoor spring cleaning. It’s important to make sure that this is completed before you set up your yard for spring. Time to put away any wintertime decor that may still be lingering around in your yard. Also, you’ll need to clear your yard of any sticks or leaves that are taking up space. Once your yard is cleaned, you’ll feel like it’s ready for spring!
You have a plan for your gardens. If you haven’t already thought about this, then it’s time to come up with a plan for your gardens. Are you thinking about a flower or vegetable garden? If you’re thinking about one of those or both, you’ll need to do some research on when you need to plant seeds for them. Some of the seeds may already be planted, but some will need to be planted later on in the spring. Also, you need to consider how you’re going to landscape your gardens. Planning ahead of time for your garden will make it easier on you in the long run!
You feel confident in your outdoor project. Having confidence in your outdoor project is imperative. Did you get important installation dates set up? Are you happy with the color choices you went with? Have all of your purchases fit within your budget? These questions and more can reassure your confidence in your outdoor project. Even if things changed from your original plan to your final outcome, it’s your confidence that will determine if your project has been a success!
