This is the first in a series of several spring project weekends. Even though many of the projects I’ll be tackling are a pain in the butt, it’s always a great feeling when everything is done. I’m getting an early start this season, and that’s probably good because there is so much to do.

It's going to be a long weekend...

Over the next month I’ll be tackling the following outdoor projects, and I’m going to begin this morning with the pressure washing:

  • Pressure wash the paver driveway and walkway
  • Pressure wash the sidewalks, street-side gutters and back patio
  • Pressure wash the house and the rain gutters
  • Pressure wash the backyard fence (both sides)
  • Pressure wash and clean all patio furniture
  • Caulk and touch up paint exterior of the home
  • Clean all exterior windows/screens
  • Check entire sprinkler system for coverage and leaks, adjust/repair as required (10 zones)
  • Thoroughly clean grill
  • General pond maintenance (replace/clean filters, check auto-fill/timer function, adjust rocks, etc)
  • Trim all plants, trees, fruit trees and palms
  • Fertilize all plants, trees, fruit trees, palms and flowers (front and back)
  • Spread approximately 10 yards of mulch
  • Select and plant this year’s crop of peppers, herbs and tomatoes
  • Check function of automatic irrigation system for peppers, herbs and tomatoes
  • Weed all flower beds (front and back) and pond area
  • Plant hundreds of annuals and assorted other plants
  • Re-design and add plants to flower bed to right of walkway (where the Queen palm was removed)
  • Clean and organize entire garage/bike shop
  • Wash automobiles and do full Zaino treatment
  • Clean all outdoor lighting fixtures, check motion sensors, replace bulbs as needed
  • Clean and adjust all outdoor security cameras

Uh, never mind. I’m going back to bed. 😐

Well, it’s a little chilly right now, but it will warm quickly as the sun rises. I’m going to head out there and start checking things off the list. I’m hoping to have all the paver, sidewalk and gutter pressure washing done by the end of the weekend, but that is going to be tough.
