As the doldrums of winter fade away, it’s no surprise that many people are already longing for the first day of spring. You may be ready for it – but, is your outdoor space ready?
According to Lowe’s experts, the average time to complete an outdoor makeover is about three months.
That means the time to start planning is now. To help customers get started, Lowe’s is offering deals and resources meant to encourage customers to start planning their lawn, garden and patio outdoor space upgrades earlier this year so they can enjoy them longer. Check out the following tips to help you “start early” this spring:
Plan your space.
Decide if your space needs true landscaping work, or if a simple garden or décor upgrade is ideal. Try creating a plan that zones a yard for your favorite outdoor activities. Consider priorities and the level of maintenance you’re willing to do, so you can create a customized project list perfect for your space.
