Both this fall and winter have been challenging for the weekend warrior. The steady rain and lack of snow have grounded your outside projects. Now that football has all but drawn to a close, how are you going to spend your weekend? If this question is plaguing you, take a look at our list of 3 projects that need to be done before spring, which can get you off the couch and back into the great outdoors!
1. Grade Your Driveway:
If you have a grader scraper, those 40° days are perfect for getting a head start on your driveway maintenance. If you’re anything like us your pot holes have been growing all winter, especially because of how much precipitation we’ve had. If the tractor has been sitting idle for the last two months be sure to check the tire pressure on your tractor. The cold weather, much like the New England Patriots, is known for causing low air pressure.
2. Start Your Lawn Mower:
Its always a good idea to get your mower out before the season and let it run for about 20 minutes. This lets the battery charge, which can keep it from being replaced in the spring. Starting your mower can also help remind you of some repairs that may need to happen before spring.
3. Trim Your Briars:
Even though this has been an exceptionally wet fall and winter, you can still get your trimmer out, install a blade and starting some of your spring clean up. The winter is a great time to get rid of those unwanted briars around your property that will bite you on the mower all summer long.
If you have any more ideas on some great winter projects please leave them in the comments, we’d love to hear them. As always, if you need a grader scraper, a blade for your trimmer or some help diagnosing a problem with your mower, come on in or give us a call. Stay warm out there!
