Summer in Minnesota has been slow to arrive but it’s Memorial weekend and the weather predictions are pretty good. The trouble is how to balance being outside with being productive. We have some suggestions based on recent articles from HouseLogic…
- Think about a coat of paint to make your home pop! Painting a door wouldn’t be too taxing. Or add an accent such as a bright porch swing or big flower pots. Just don’t paint brick! (You may regret that – as it can destroy the brick.)
- Get out and garden! Pull those weeds, mow that lawn – then stop to think about what you want your garden to look like next year, five years from now, at your kid’s graduation open house. Taking the time to plan will save you headaches and give you time for a lemonade while you bask in the doneness of your maintenance.
- Run among the daisies. OK, not daisies but if you’re thinking about flowers – check out HouseLogic’s list of curb-appeal flowers.
