To make the Spring cleanup process easier and less stressful, it is advantageous to think through certain things prior to starting. Managing expectations, thinking through how much you have to clean and seeing what equipment you need can make a huge difference.
The first thing to think about is what equipment you need to clean your yard. If you do not have the proper equipment, this will allow you time to purchase it. Some examples of common cleaning equipment are rakes and vacuums. Another thing to think through is what you need to clean in your yard. This can be as simple as surveying how many leaves you have to pick up. If there were any storms which left you with large sticks or other objects in your yard, it may be wise to call your sanitation department to remove them.
Another one of the five things to think about before you begin your Spring cleanup is to think about is whether you want to tackle other projects when you clean. If you have always wanted to install a patio, it can be a great time to add it. Fourthly, once you have successfully cleaned your yard, are you going to do any lawn care? If you want to put down fertilizer, weed killers or even crab grass killer it can be a great time to put them down.
Lastly, it is important to mentally prepare yourself prior to cleaning your yard. It can be a long process or it may take you only a day. Keep in mind that it may take a lot longer than you anticipate to complete your Spring cleaning, managing your expectations can reduce your chances of getting in a time crunch.
Once you take time to think through the five things to think about before you begin your Spring cleanup, the process of cleaning your yard will be far less stressful and less time consuming. Cleaning your yard should not be an extremely daunting process.
