The snow is almost gone up here in the hilltowns and I am sure the Pioneer Valley is drying out. Time to start that yard clean up before the leaves and flower gardens start blooming. If you are in the market for selling your home this is a crucial time to spruce up for the Spring Market.
With first impressions as important as they are, Coldwell Banker Blue Matter shares “3 Affordable Ways to Spruce Up Your Front Porch For Spring“. Coldwell Banker created a board for those interested in their front door wreath idea, check it out!
Here is an article from “This Old House” about spring clean up. The blog posted this article in March, which probably was good timing for many but we are just passing the “squirt” test up here.
ehow Home shares tips and instructions about cleaning up your yard after a long winter.
AND, for the Pinterest fans the pins are unlimited with ideas, instructions and more for your Spring Clean Up Projects. We just started our own boards on Pinterest, check out our progress.
Hope everyone enjoys this Spring weather….
