Spending Memorial Day on the Lawn

Homeowner’s To-Do List

In the mind of many Americans, Memorial Day is a time to honor those who have served our country and give thanks for their sacrifice. For many homeowners in Knoxville, TN, this weekend also signifies the start of summer. The temperatures are climbing, the sun is out and your “Honey To-Do List” is growing. With the return of the outdoor season, your list of chores lengthens. The Memorial Day long weekend is a great time to get all your home projects complete and in order. Use this homeowner’s Memorial Day checklist to get your outdoor space in tip-top shape!

1. Test and Repair Your Irrigation System.

Whether you have installed an irrigation system or simply use your backyard hose, make sure your outdoor tap and sprinkler heads are working. Getting any damaged or leaking sprinkler heads fixed before the season will help ensure that your lawn remains hydrated, lush and healthy.

2. Hire a Professional Lawn Care Company.

3. Power Wash & Stain the Deck.

Wash off any mold and/or mildew that has accumulated on your deck by giving it a good power wash. Once the deck is clean, apply a protectant stain to ensure it does not get damaged over the summer months.

4. Organize and Declutter Your Garage & Shed.

You’ll save yourself tons of time if your garage andgarden shed are in proper order. Take everything out, sweep the floor and put things back in in a logical and orderly way. Return tools back to their proper places. Anything you don’t need, consider donating or selling.

5. Clean & Wash Patio Furniture.

Pull out the chairs and tables from your basement or garage, wipe off the cobwebs and dirt, and set up your backyard furniture. You’ll be lounging before you know it!

6. Edge Your Lawn and Garden Beds.

Clean up the edges of your lawn and beds – that all important separation between your grass and your landscape beds. A fresh edge adds distinction and character to your landscape, giving it a clean and detailed finish.

7. Do Your Pool Maintenance.

Get ready to make a splash this summer by checking your pool’s water levels and pump condition, cleaning out debris and scheduling a pro for any necessary maintenance. When hot and sunny days roll around, you’ll be grateful that your pool is set up and ready for use!

8. Do Your Lawn Mower Maintenance.

Make sure to check the oil, clean the mower deck and sharpen the blades before your first cut of the season. You should sharpen your mower blades 2-3 times per season to ensure a healthy and clean cut every time.
