4 Things to Do in February to Avoid a Yucky Spring!

A mud-remediation plan. That’s No. 1 on this short list.


That dark time when winter is like that friend who can’t take a hint to leave.


Give a push with these four easy tasks that’ll help usher in spring.


#1 Make an Anti-Mud Plan:

Mud may be the least of your frozen worries now, but it’s a-coming.


Be prepared with a remediation plan. With your yard in its frozen-tundra state, you can easily see the troublesome spots.


Research potential ground cover, like gravel, a rain garden, decorative rocks, or the right grass that’ll soak it up. Then you’ll be ready to execute your anti-mud plan the moment it’s warm enough — and do it in time to keep the mud at bay.


#2 Organize Your Cleaning Closets and Laundry Room:

Before the madness of spring cleaning begins, organize (or even renovate!) your laundry room and clean closets or cupboards.


This will not only breathe a new life into these oft-ignored areas, but perfectly pampered cleaning stations can seriously rev up your spring cleaning motivation.


#3 Deep-Clean Your Entryway:

Snow. Salt. Boots. Shovels. Your entryway floors, baseboards, rugs, and more have had a rough few months. Give that smallest of rooms some deep cleaning love now, before the salt crust becomes a permanent part of your entryway decor in spring.


#4 Hail a Handyperson:

Spring and summer are peak handyperson seasons. Skip the surge pricing and the agony of waiting for callbacks by hiring someone now. At least for the indoor chores.


Plus, you may be surprised at what outdoor chores can be done.


You’ll be spring-ready before the first flower buds.
