Project Ideas for Memorial Day Weekend

Project Ideas for Memorial Day Weekend

Memorial Day kicks off summer fun. If you find yourself staying home this Memorial Day weekend, there’s another thing the holiday weekend is known to kickoff which might be more to your liking: The unofficial start of the home improvement season!

Take the long weekend as your opportunity to fix those nagging little problems that have been at the back of your mind, just waiting for a nice day to get started. Got a leaky outdoor faucet? Need to bring the hose and lawn furniture out? Want to seal your driveway?

You could use the first half of the weekend to set up the yard for Memorial Day entertaining. Take the time early so you can plan your first bar-b-que of the year. There are traditionally a lot of sales on all of the right outdoor entertaining supplies during May.

Some things that may need your attention before the big weekend are:

  • Is your deck ready for company? Maybe it just needs a good cleaning or even a pressure wash. If you think your deck needs more attention than that, a new coat of sealer will have it looking new for your big day.  Many cleaning, staining and sealer products can get your deck looking awesome!
  • Have you been wanting to try your hand at pellet grilling?  Grills and pellets are often on sale Memorial Day weekend!
  • Put the final touches on your entertainment area with some flowerbeds or potted plants. Building a couple flower boxes for your deck is a quick and fun weekend project. Not looking for more flowers? Your boxes can also be an easily accessible way to keep an herb garden right next to your grill!
  • Have you installed a festive flag to commemorate our fallen heroes?  A wide selection is usually available for Memorial Day.

Memorial Day weekend is a perfect weekend to break ground for that new project you’ve wanted to get underway. Tear down that old shed, stain your siding, caulk and seal windows and doors, dig up an old garden, measure and put in stakes for a new fence.

If you plan to get outside and float the rivers, stop in to see the latest inflatables!  Memorial Day is a time to look forward to the rest of the summer. The projects you finish now can be enjoyed all throughout the season.

Plan on moving before the year is out? A few projects will protect your investment and make your life more enjoyable now and selling your home even easier.

No matter what your plans are for the big weekend, stop in and we’ll be happy to help you find what you need for entertaining, finishing up that small job, or kicking off your next big project!
