With winter giving way to warmer temperatures, it’s the perfect time to get your home in order. Here are some simple ways to freshen up your space, from decluttering to restyling and prepping the yard for the lazy summer days ahead.

Start with much-needed yard work

After a long winter, yards are in desperate need of some TLC. Start by picking up twigs and raking the lawn (once it’s dry). Add fresh soil and seed to damaged patches of grass, and prune dead or damaged leaves and branches from shrubs and plants to promote healthy growing. If you’re new to lawn care or pinched for time, the pros at Yardly can assist with everything from yard cleanup to mowing to aeration and fertilization.

Paint inside or out for a new look

A fresh lick of paint is an impactful—and relatively inexpensive—way to spruce up your home. Create an accent wall, boost curb appeal with exterior painting, or give your whole space a clean, new look. Find inspiration and a range of colours and finish options at Dulux Paints. If you prefer to outsource your home painting project, try the experts at CertaPro Painters.

Use storage containers to help you declutter
