Home Improvement Projects for March

Monnick Supply - Home Improvement Projects for March

You can almost smell spring in the air. Use this home improvement checklist as we say farewell to winter and hello to warmer weather. As always, you’ll also find some ideas to help you plan ahead for bigger projects and suggestions for leaving a positive impact on those around you. Don’t forget to download our March home improvement checklist, too.

Out with the cold and in with the new season, we say. March is a great time to transition your home from winterized to springtime fresh.

The weather can be a bit unpredictable this time of year, so it’s good to have a few interior DIY projects to keep you busy.

Repair storm damage.

Once the snow and ice have melted, you can make your way around your home’s exterior and repair any seasonal damage. Look for leaks, cracks caused by shifts in the foundation, and roofing and window damage. This will help keep water and drafts out, not to mention pests and other critters, too.

Test the garage door.

To be honest, there’s nothing special that makes this a must-do in March, but now’s as good a time as any. You might also consider switching to a smart garage door or one with a keypad to make coming and going easier.

Prepare outdoor furniture

It’s almost backyard party time! Bring your patio furniture out of storage and clean it up. This includes washing or replacing cushions. Make sure it’s safe, too. Check for cracks, ripped fabric and, if you have a porch swing, rusted chains and eyehooks.

Start planting.

If you still have dead stems from last year’s perennials, remove them now before new growth comes in. While you’re at it, March is a great time to divide those perennials. You’ll get more plants at no cost, and who doesn’t love budget-friendly gardening? Plant summer bulbs like gladioli and lilies now. Especially if you love planters, you’ll love these DIY curb appeal projects to kickstart your spring. And if you’ve got the farming urge, now’s the time to get zucchini in the ground.

Tune up the mower.

It’ll be time to cut the grass before you know it. Make sure the blade is sharp and in good working order. If your mower is gas-powered, be sure to refuel it. It’s not a bad idea to take mowers and tractors in for a professional tune-up if it’s been a while, too.

Get ready for tax time.

This should be extra easy if you got all your paperwork and digital documents in order a few months ago. Collect what you need and track down what’s missing so you can focus less on filing and more on how to spend your refund.
