Six outdoor spring-cleaning tips

Keep your living space clean and clutter-free with these six tips.

1. Freshen up the greenery

Spring has sprung and so have your plants! Keep your outdoor space from getting unruly by:

  • Mowing the lawn
  • Trimming trees
  • Pruning bushes
  • Pulling up weeds

Being on top of landscaping not only has a huge impact on the overall appearance of your outdoor space but also keeps your plants healthy!

2. Take inventory of your items

It’s hard to keep your space organized if it’s cluttered with unused items. Go through all your outdoor items and see if there is anything you can get rid of. Have your kids outgrown the trampoline or playset? Is your barbeque still in good condition? Has your bike rusted?

Anything that’s  broken or no longer used should be recycled or donated. If you’re unsure of how to properly dispose of any unusable or unwanted items, give 1-800-GOT-JUNK? a call to make the job easier!

3. Clean your outdoor furniture

Has your patio furniture been covered in rain or snow for the last few months, or your BBQ collecting dust in the backyard shed? Whether your furniture has been in storage or braving the elements, clean it off and see what condition it’s in.

4. Purge your shed

Get rid of any items in your shed that no longer serve a purpose so you can utilize your shed for storage or as a workspace. If your shed is starting to deteriorate, there's no point in keeping it around. Consider fixing it up, or if it's past the point of repair it’s time to say goodbye.

5. Spruce up your fence or gate

To make your fence or gate feel like new, rake up any debris that may have gathered along its edge and hose off any mud. Depending on its material, your fence could’ve rusted or have chipped paint. Give it a facelift with a good cleaning and a fresh coat of paint.

6. Replace your lightbulbs

To showcase all the hard work you put in to refresh your outdoor space, make sure you have enough light to highlight your space at night! Ensure your space is beautifully lit by cleaning any outdoor fixtures and replacing broken light bulbs
