To-Dos:  Your March Checklist

March can be unpredictable when it comes to the weather,but no matter what Mother Nature is doing outside your window, it’s natural to crave a fresh start this time of year. The first official day of spring is March 20!  Fill the new season with a bit of spring cleaning, fresh flowers and — if you can get outdoors — a little dirt under your fingernails.


Plant a tree. Spring is the best time to plant trees because it’s a time of growth, making it easier for root systems to get established. Be sure to check with your local nursery to determine which species will do best in your microclimate and to get detailed planting instructions. If your area has a late date of last frost, you’ll need to wait until all threat of it has passed before planting. 

Inspect your home’s exterior. 
Once winter storms have passed, carefully inspect the exterior of your home for damage.  

Spring-clean the kitchen. Give your kitchen a fresh start by cleaning some of the areas we often skip during quicker daily cleanup sessions: Clean small appliances; wipe grease and grime from the range hood, backsplash and light fixtures; clean grout; and vacuum hard-to-reach places (like under the stove) using an attachment.

Treat yourself to spring blooms. Spring flowers such as daffodils are plentiful and inexpensive this month, so keep an eye out for bargains. And if you have blooms popping up in the garden, why not snip a few to enjoy indoors? 

Clean up patio furniture. Outdoor furniture can get really grimy over the winter, so be sure to give everything a good scrubbing before you start using it for the season. Launder washable outdoor cushion covers.  Replace worn-out pieces if needed.
Tune up lawn and garden tools. 
Take your lawn mower and clippers in for a sharpening and tuneup before you begin work in your garden.
