Have your house painted. Spring, with its milder weather in many regions, is a good time to paint your house. If you’re looking to hire a house painter, ask friends and neighbors for recommendations, search on Houzz and, as always, check references before hiring a pro.
Check irrigation systems. It can be disastrous to find out too late that your irrigation system has a clog or leak. Turn on each hose and irrigation system and check that it is working properly.
Clean gutters and downspouts. Remove leaves and debris left by winter storms from rain gutters and make sure downspouts are clear.
