How do I get my yard ready for spring?
We love having acreage for our kids to play on. The boys hit the yard several times a day to practice lacrosse, we host night parties year round and Hannah loves to play fetch as much as possible. Our 14 year old is our main mower and since Phoenix has mild winters, he only has to mow a few times every season. We just got past a huge rainstorm and it’s now predicted to warm up for spring which means we’re prepping for a hot summer. Now that it’s drying out, we’ve been getting our yard ready as a family with the usual weed pulling but thought it’d be helpful to put together a checklist for you to get your own yard ready for spring. I know it’s easier to get things done if I have a list so by printing this out, I’m able to check things off to keep track of what we’ve accomplished. We’ve partnered with Greenworks Tools to share our helpful spring yard work checklist AAAAAAND bonus: offer a generous giveaway! (Scroll down for the giveaway info.)
What is the fastest way to clean up your yard?
Having the right tools helps yard work get completed so much faster. A few must-haves are a heavy duty rake, a pressure washer, hedge trimmer, blower and good lawn mower. We just upgraded our basic blower to a Greenwoks cordless backpack blower from Lowe’s. The best part is that it’s battery powered! My husband opened the box when we brought it home from Lowe’s and said, “WOAH! Check out this huge battery!”, it’s a 60V and is powerful enough to blow 145 MPH which makes blowing through dry/wet leaves and debris a breeze. It has a variable speed trigger so you can choose and maintain the speed you want.
Aaaah, “dusting” my very used back porch has never been easier or looked SO good! 😉

Okay so I still haven’t done much with my back porch becaaaaaause we’re soon taking the entire back side of my house down to the studs for my overdue remodel. (Happy dance !??) Anyhoodle, I am wondering if y’all think I should stencil the concrete in the meantime? Seeing our friends @peabodyandsassafras paint stripes on their front porch (porch twins! ?♀️) makes me want to stencil mine just for the summer. Is that a huge waste of time OR totally worth it? Please weigh in! . . Happy hump day!!! ? #kelseclectichouse

We love that these tools are built for the whole family to handle. Especially in our kids’ current stage, they’re always in the yard and are old enough to pitch in.
