5 cheap, DIY projects to spruce up your home this spring


If the exterior of your home got a little worn down and neglected during winter, check out these easy do-it-yourself projects to spruce up your yard and home.

Lou Manfredini has been a homebuilder and renovator for 25 years. Now he serves as Ace Hardware’s home expert, and he offered several tips for homeowners to update the exteriors of their homes.

Clean up

The first thing Manfredini recommends is to clean up and declutter the outside of your home. Winter can often mat down shrubs and break branches in your yard, giving it an unkempt look. Spend a day raking up dead grass, pruning your bushes or trees and using a pressure washer to clean away mud or dirt from the sidewalks and driveway.

“It will be remarkable how much better your exterior on and around your home can look,” Manfredini said. “And you really didn’t spend any money, it was just really more of your time.”
