If you hate the thought of yard maintenance, but you know it has to be done, you may look for every opportunity to put it off. Unfortunately, though, your grass doesn’t stop growing just because you don’t feel like dragging out the lawn mower. Here are a few quick suggestions for making yard maintenance more fun and productive:
- Set A Date – If you do better when you have something scheduled on your calendar, it may make it easier to tackle those yard maintenance projects you really don’t want to think about when you have a specific day set aside to do them. Treat it like a job instead of like an optional item, and you’ll quickly see the work get done. You can even pay yourself in treats or a cool glass of iced tea.
- Recruit Helpers – If you look outside and you have yard maintenance mayhem, you may know that there is no way you can get it all done by yourself. Recruiting some help from outside sources, like your kids, your friends, or your neighbors, can help you achieve your goals. You may even be able to swap help for one of their projects later on.
- Make it a Party – Everything is more fun when you make it a party, and yard maintenance is no different. Coordinate with your neighbors to tackle the toughest projects as a team and throw a celebration afterwards to enjoy the moment.
