3 Spring Cleaning Tips Outside Your Lantana Home

The warmer months are ahead, and that means it’s time to trade in your heavy wool coats for spring dresses. It’s common during this time of year to do some spring cleaning inside your Lantana home – but what about the outdoors? With spring’s big dose of sunshine, it’s important to take extra care of the exterior part of your household. Here are a few tips to keep your home in Lantana in tip-top shape all season long: 

Clean Your Windows

Our first tip is all about your Lantana home’s curb appeal. Make your neighbors jealous with sparkling clean windows from the inside out. Gloomy winter weather can often leave grime on your home’s windows making it murky to see out of. Take your window cleaning outdoors with a spritz of cleaner on the exterior part of the window. For extra grimy glass, remove the screens and spray the dirty off gently with your garden hose.

De-Leaf and De-Clutter

While you’re de-cluttering the inside of your home, don’t forget to de-leaf the outside! Lantana residents are lucky enough to have a wonderful homeowner’s association that maintains the front yard of your Lantana home, but what about the backyard? Fall and winter can contribute to a lot of falling leaves clogging your gutter and killing your grass. Clearing out your gutters will prevent any future water damage to your home, and as a bonus will make it sparkle all the way to your neighbors in Flower Mound! Rake up any lingering leaves and twigs off the lawn to give your grass the chance to breathe and grow.

Sort Your Flower Bed

It’s time to start yanking up those pesky weeds that have become overgrown in your garden. Make sure to separate the plant growth between weeds, dead plants and potential blossoms. By doing this in early spring, you’re sure to end up with a beautiful, flowering garden by summer.
