Spring Cleaning Tips for your Outdoor Space



Spring officially begins on March 20th, and soon will follow budding flowers, warmer days, and longer nights.  The time is now to think about preparing your backyard and outdoor space for spring; whether it involves tilling the land, clearing out dead leaves from the fall prior, or washing hard to reach windows and skylights, Four Seasons gathered our favorite (and most efficient) cleaning tips to use on your outdoor space this spring.

STEAM IT CLEAN
Renting a steam machine from a local home improvement store is a quick and efficient way to clean stuck on grime and months of mildew from windows and skylights. Add in a squeegee and some environmentally-friendly cleaning solution, you’ll have clean glass in no time. Additionally, steam machines can be used on outdoor cushions, outdoor furniture, grills, and even siding!

RE-PURPOSE & REUSE
Reviving old outdoor décor with a fresh coat of paint or stain is an inexpensive way to restore items or furniture that look like it’s well past it’s prime. Old terracotta planters that have seen one too many snowy nights will instantly look like new once it’s sprayed with outdoor spray paint, while stumps from rotted trees that once were can be re-purposed into a succulent planter. Anything is possible when you look at it in a different way. Place all items deemed trash in a pile and revisit it later with a fresh set of eyes before disposing it for good.

MIND THE GUTTER
It’s easy to forget or overlook the gutters when spring cleaning the exterior of your home, after all, the mess is usually hidden within the gutter itself. After months of rain, snow, ice, leaves, and twigs, gutters get downright gross. The job can be done a lot quicker and more efficient with a handy gutter scoop and a garden hose with a trigger spray nozzle. For those with a Four Seasons Patio Cover or Pergola, you can purchase a Double Catch Gutter with leaf screen to protect your gutters from excessive gunk in the future.
