It’s that time of year…tulips are beginning to sprout and the sun is shining more. When the days become longer it is time to take a look around your surroundings and see what things need to be done to get your home and garden ready for spring and summer. Here are some tips to help you:

Spring is the perfect time to look around your home for any damage that might have occurred during the winter months.  Gutters and downspouts need to be cleaned and running freely. Damaged siding needs to be repaired or replaced and foundations need to be inspected.

Spring is also a good time to power wash the exterior of your home and deck; the process makes both look like new again. After washing it is important to add a sealant

or stain to a deck every other year to protect the wood from shrinking and warping.

Having a clean and well maintained exterior makes your home look better and keeps water and mold issues from developing on the interior.  Taking care of the exterior of your home will protect the interior. Pro Handyman Plus will be happy to come to your home and repair or replace any siding, roofing, window, gutter or foundation issues you might have.  Give them a call today for your free estimate.

Kitchen Herbs

Early spring is a great time for gardeners to germinate seeds indoors.  Freshly sprouted herbs in the kitchen add aroma to your home and can be used for cooking even as we wait for temperatures to warm enough for your outdoor vegetable garden. The only requirements (aside from the seeds themselves) are a tray and potting soil, preferably under a humidity dome and fluorescent light.  For all of your garden needs – think Black Diamond.
