Staying on the Move

As we all know, social distancing and self-isolation play a huge role in keeping everyone safe and healthy. But as we also all know, they can both make things quite dull.

For that reason, it’s important to keep moving with at-home activities to keep yourself in a routine and keep your mind and body healthy while we wait out the storm. So, if you’re locked down with nothing but time, then what better opportunity to shape up around the house than now?

Here are a few ways to kill a few birds with one stone by taking care of some spring chores while flattening the curve!


Wake Up Your Lawn and Garden

What better way to get up, get going, and get outside than starting with the basics? These tips are great for waking your lawn up after a long stretch of cold weather, as well as setting yourself up for success throughout spring and well into the fall.

Check Up on Your Trees

Don’t forget the trees! These simple steps for spring tree care will help you remove dead or damaged parts of the tree, encourage new growth, and maintain tree shape that compliments your entire yard.


Plan and Build a Backyard Garden

What better way to keep the whole family up and active than planning, building, and maintaining a good old-fashioned garden? With summer quickly approaching, now is the perfect time to get a jump start on what could quickly become your new favorite hobby. Plan well, get creative and have fun. Happy gardening!


Spring Cleaning

With spring in full swing, there’s plenty of sprucing up to go around for the whole family, making for even more great at-home activities. Cleaning up around the house and in the yard will make being at home more comfortable and enjoyable. May we suggest starting with that tool shed of yours?


Install a Drip Irrigation System

This is a perfect way to compliment that yard and garden that you’ve worked so hard to maintain. Drip irrigation systems are tried and true, easy to install, and the most sure-fire way to increase watering efficiency, grow healthier plants and alter your landscaping methods to account for changes in season.

In unprecedented times like these, it’s important to remember that we’re all in this together and that by staying as active and positive as possible, we will get through it in no time.
