Spring has come early to the Columbus / Phenix City areas and March is peak listing time for homes in our area. Here are a few tips to get ready for early Spring and upping your curb appeal.
Freshen your pine straw or mulch, if that is your preferred cover for your beds. Trim bushes and spray those pesky young spring weeds in your beds with a weed killer. Pressure wash driveways and walkways but postpone cleaning windows and your home until the pollen season has passed. Everything will be coated in yellow for the next month!
If you own a pool, uncover it and start the process to get it sparkling clean! Fresh ferns for your entryway or porch are available at most gardening stores now. Bedding plants are showing up in stores too. Consider what you will plant later in the season. Our area is prone to a freeze or frost before Easter so most gardeners are hesitant to plant annuals this early.
I am happy to come visit you at your home and give you a few ideas and tips that can help before you list your home for sale.
FUN NOTE- Hummers are traveling our way. We usually see our first Ruby Throat male scout around the 20th of March. It’s time to get out a clean feeder!
