    Get Spring Ready With Knowby

    As winter’s chill begins to leave, and the first signs of spring emerge, it’s the perfect time to embark on a journey of renewal and rejuvenation. Spring represents a fresh start, and there’s no better time to get your home and garden in tip-top shape. In this blog post, we’ll explore how Knowby can help you make the most of this beautiful season by completing those DIY jobs that have been lingering, and invest in your lawn to create the perfect outdoor oasis for the upcoming summer. 

    1 Wrapping Up Unfinished DIY Projects 

    Spring cleaning and organising should extend beyond your closets and cupboards, but how many of us really make the time to do that? Take a look around your home and you’ll likely find a list of unfinished DIY projects, from minor repairs to more ambitious renovations. With milder weather and longer daylight hours, now is the ideal time to tackle them. To help get you on your way we’ve created a few DIY Knowbys for these common tasks:

    • Painting: Freshen up your walls with a new coat of paint. Choose soft, pastel colours that mirror the hues of spring to create a bright and airy atmosphere in your home.
    • Garden Shed or Garage Organisation: Organise your tools, garden equipment, and outdoor gear. Invest in shelves, hooks and storage containers to keep everything in place.
    • Deck and Patio Maintenance: Inspect your outdoor living spaces for any damage or wear and tear. Repaint, stain or reseal your deck or patio to make it look like new.
    • Bathroom and Kitchen Upgrades: Consider small upgrades, such as new faucets, cabinets hardware or a tile backsplash to breathe new life into your kitchen and bathroom spaces.

    Completing these unfinished projects will not only enhance the functionality and aesthetics of your home but also give you a sense of accomplishment and satisfaction.

    2 Investing In Your Lawn for a Perfect Summer

    The lawn is often the heart of any outdoor space and investing in it now will pay off when summer arrives. Check out our Knowby on how to create the perfect lawn or follow the tips below to make your lawn the envy of the neighbourhood:

    • Lawn Care: Start by cleaning up any debris that has accumulated over the winter. Rake up leaves, remove dead branches and aerate the soil to promote healthy growth.
    • Fertilization and Weeding: Invest in good quality lawn fertiliser and herbicide to ensure your grass receives essential nutrients and remains weed-free. Talk to your local nursery for guidance on the best products for your region.
    • Mowing and Edging: Regularly mow and edge your lawn to maintain a neat and manicured appearance. Adjust your mower’s height to achieve the ideal grass length for your specific type of grass.
    • Landscaping: Consider adding some new plants, flowers or shrubs to your garden to bring life and colour to your outdoor space. Make sure to choose species that are suitable for your climate and soil type.
    • Irrigation System: If you have an irrigation system, ensure it is in proper working condition to keep your lawn adequately watered throughout the season.

    With a little time and effort invested in your lawn now, you’ll have a lush, green and inviting space for summer barbecues, outdoor gatherings and relaxing afternoons. You might even want to learn the art of cocktail making to really entertain your guests!

    Spring is the perfect time to tackle those DIY projects you’ve been putting off and prepare your lawn for the summer months ahead. Embrace the spirit of renewal, and transform your home and garden into spaces that bring joy and relaxation to your life. Don’t procrastinate, get started today and reap the rewards of your efforts in the months to come!
