Can you believe that it's already June? What's not to love about this gorgeous month? After all, it boasts the longest day of the year as well as comfortable temperatures. You're going to want to make sure your home is in great shape for June by following these helpful home improvement tips:
- Give your garden a makeover: "Keep wood fences, gates, arbors and pergolas in good repair for many years to come by adding a fresh coat of paint or clear wood sealant each summer," suggests Houzz contributor Laura Gaskill. "Also make sure trees and shrubs are not growing too close to fences — tough branches and roots can cause a lot of damage."
- Paint your house: If your home's exterior is in need of a fresh coat of paint, now is the perfect time to do so. The rainy days of April and May are behind us, and plenty of sun is on the horizon. If you're especially handy you can try performing this task by yourself, or you can enlist the help of experts.
- Sweep your porch: There's nothing better than sitting back and relaxing with a cool glass of lemonade or iced tea on a warm summer day. You're going to want to make sure your porch is clean in order to do so. Wipe down the panels and replace any outdated cushions.
