April 8, 2021

Our new homes in Elizabeth, Colorado are nestled among 1,000 acres in a conservation community, so homeowners enjoy the tranquility of nature while Denver is just a short drive away. If you’re ready to buy as we approach warm weather, following these maintenance tips will help to ensure your home is in great condition through the spring and summer seasons for many years to come:

Lay Mulch and Prep Gardens

Planning to test out your green thumb? Mid-to-late spring is the ideal time of year to lay mulch and prep your garden. Aim to lay mulch when the weather is warm enough to allow the soil a chance to reach a consistently warmer temperature. If you’re planning to plant seedlings, start with a thin layer of mulch initially (you can always add more later, if necessary).

Clean Outdoor Appliances

When you’re ready to soak up the sun out on the back porch, grilling provides the perfect opportunity to take dinner outside. As the weather warms up and you find yourself outdoors more often, be sure to give your grill and other outdoor appliances a thorough cleaning. If it’s been a while since you’ve cleaned the grill, you may need a degreaser to cut through built-up grease and grime.

Get an A/C Inspection

As temperatures continue to climb, your HVAC system will be ramping up its workload to keep your household comfortable. It’s recommended to have your air conditioning unit inspected once per year by a qualified HVAC professional, and late spring is an excellent time to schedule an inspection. However, if you’ve just purchased a new home, the HVAC inspection can wait until next year. Another perk of buying new!

Install or Inspect the Irrigation System

If you want to keep your yard green all year round, irrigation is a must. Use this time to have an irrigation system installed and programmed, or have the system inspected if it’s an existing part of the home. Once it’s ready to go, you’ll benefit from a beautiful yard that makes it a joy to spend time outdoors.

Homeownership is an exciting step, and there’s no question that you’ll want to protect your investment for years to come. Adhering to maintenance schedules will help you ensure that your property remains in great condition throughout the seasons.
