7 Home DIY Jobs For The Easter Long Weekend

 

 


The Easter long weekend is just around the corner, and for the lucky ones it means four full days off work filled with friends, family and of course, chocolate. It’s also an opportunity to get stuck in to those home improvements projects you’ve been putting off since Christmas.

Here’s some DIY suggestions to help make the most of your Easter break:

Re-seal your decking - After a long summer of entertaining and hot sun burning down your deck could be in need of some decking oil. Utilise the last of the hot autumn days to revive your deck and get it ready for next summer. Use a soft brush or roller and try for two coats spread over two days.

Prepare the garden for winter - 

Protect your garden through winter with thorough preparation. Weed and till the soil, move tropical or subtropical plants to a protected area, rake away fallen leaves, and if you have a veggie garden a thick layer of mulch will help protect them against the cold.

Plant a new lawn - The first half of Autumn is on of the best times of years to lay new lawn in Australia. With mostly sunny weather and without too many lawn-killing 35C+ days, planting now will allow the lawn to establish itself before the onset of Winter cold.

Build a fire pit - With the colder months just around the corner, your neighbours will love coming around for a BBQ when they find out about you brand new DIY backyard fire pit. It can be as simple as welding together some steel plates and rods and surrouding with rocks, or if you're a little more advanced with your welding skills you can get creative and make something really eye-catching. Always check local codes in regards open flames in your area before getting started.


Pressure wash everything – Bust out the pressure washer to rejuvenate and restore dirty driveways, mossy pavers, patios and pathways. You'll more than likely end up soaking wet and filthy but your home's exterior will look brand new!

WD-40 everything - Perform an audit on everything creaky and squeaky and eliminate the noise with a liberal dose of WD-40. Check out 40 fabulous uses for WD-40
