Hatch Hacks – Summer Projects

Summer only comes once a year and it is important that we take advantage of the beautiful days it gives us. Whether it is something simple around the house or renovations within the home, no matter how big nor small, this project has the power to increase the value of your home.

One of the more common tasks homeowners enjoy tackling during the summer is power washing and re-staining their decks. Power washing is important and the first step if you are looking to re-stain. Power washing is also an excellent idea for all parts of the home including sidewalks, driveways, and your garage. Once you have completed the power wash, the re-staining is then ready to be applied and bring your deck a new polish.

Laying mulch on garden beds will quickly spruce up the area around your home’s exterior. Mulch brings more than one benefit to your yard. Mulch smothers weeds by depriving them of oxygen and light, and it holds moisture in the soil, saving water and giving plants a consistent source of moisture.

One final task you can accomplish in just one day is cleaning out your gutters. You may be able to do this job yourself, and at little to no cost at all. Cleaning your gutters should be done once or twice a year. During these times cleaning, you should look for any breaks or leaks in your gutters so that those may be repaired.
