We don’t normally bother with exterior maintenance in the winter months, but come the beginning of March, it is time to think about tidying up the exterior, particularly the front elevation. If you are planning to brighten up the front of your home, here are a few tips to ensure a smooth transition.
Rent a Power Wash Machine
These amazing appliances fire a high pressure jet of water, which will clean the following:
- Driveway and Paths
- Walls and perhaps the roof
You may already own a power wash, but if not, rent one for the entire weekend, as they can clean just about anything, especially stone terraces and driveways.
If your fencing leaves a lot to be desired, there are affordable fencing services in West Lothian who will be happy to show you what they can do. You could install composite fencing, and with faux timber finishes, you won’t lose that rustic charm.
Trimming the Hedges
This is a simple enough task, and you might want to prune the trees, giving them optimum growing in the coming season. If you don’t have a stepladder, or haven’t the time, your local garden maintenance company would be happy to add you to their regular rounds, popping round once or twice a month to ensure the garden is tidy.
Tending the Flower Beds
Remove all the weeds and add some compost or topsoil, which can be obtained from your nearest garden centre, and you might want to consider buying a few plants and shrubs, as now is a good time to plant.
