One Minute We Have Hail, And The Next We Have Blue Skies And You Can Just Feel Spring In Full Bloom.

In those breaks of sun I can suddenly see all the pollen and the build-up of grimy, mold, and moss from the colder months, and I know I have some work to do! But knowing where to start with your spring tasks can be a bit overwhelming. I feel like the list of to-dos is growing longer and longer every day. 

Something I’ve learned over the years is how to break down projects into tasks. Then execute those tasks almost like a board game. Here are the 6 steps to having a beautiful spring in your PNW home. I break it into House and Yard essentials:


  • Review & schedule your spring projects list
  • Service HVAC
  • Scheduling needed painting
  • Demoss roof
  • Concrete/Foundation work
  • Check/clear attic and crawl space vents
  • Review & pre-plan your summer project list


  • Fertilize with compost
  • Cut back deciduous ornamental grasses
  • Prune any dead, diseased, or distorted portions of plants
