7 At-home Construction Tasks for March
Updated: Feb 28
Gardening and Home Renovation Tips: Best DIY at-home construction tasks to prepare for before spring.
Spring is a great time to tackle construction jobs around the house - and it won't be long until it's here! We've got some of the best construction tasks to carry out on your home in spring.
With milder temperatures and longer daylight hours, March is an ideal time to work outdoors without the heat or cold being a major issue - so get planning for your busy home-improvement season, so that your outdoor space will be primed for summer leisure activities!
Task #1 - Deck Construction
Spring is an excellent time to build a new deck or repair an existing one. With warmer temperatures and longer daylight hours, you'll have plenty of time to complete the project. Deck-building can be a fantastically rewarding job with dry weather on your side, and will have your deck ready for a stress-free summer soiree!
Task #2 - Patio Construction
Similar to deck construction, building or repairing a patio is a great spring construction job. Consider using materials such as concrete, paving, or natural stone to create an exciting, functional outdoor living space.
Freshen Up Pathways
If your external flooring doesn't need putting together or updating, why not freshen up your pathways, patios and driveways with a high-powered pressure washer.
Over the winter months, pathways can grow layers of weeds and moss, and with the bad weather can become scruffy and overgrown.
Task #3 - Fence Installation
Installing fences adds privacy, security, and aesthetic appeal to your home. Spring is the ideal time to start fencing to ensure the work can be finished before the summer heat sets in.
Tip #4 - Painting house Exteriors
Spring is a great time to give your home's exterior a fresh coat of paint. With milder temperatures and lower humidity, the paint will dry faster and adhere better to your exteriors. Painting can feel daunting, but with our range of ladders and other access equipment, you have nothing to fear but the abundant choice of colour now available at your local hardware shop!
Tip #5 - Roof Repairs
Spring is an ideal time to have your roof inspected and repaired or replaced if necessary. With fewer weather interruptions, contractors can work more efficiently and complete the job faster. Roof ladders enable a close and safe inspection of your roof to ensure nothing gets missed!
Tip #6 - Landscaping
Landscaping can greatly enhance the curb appeal of your home. Consider planting new flowers, trees or adding a water feature to your yard to create a beautiful outdoor space. The best tool for this job is a miniature 1t excavator, small enough to fit through doorways, yet powerful enough to change the landscape of your garden.
Tip #7 - Window Replacement
Replacing old or damaged windows can improve energy efficiency, reduce noise, and enhance the appearance of your home. Spring is a good time to undertake this construction job as you can let in the fresh air while the new windows are installed.

Remember, Safety First - Always.
Taking on construction projects in the spring is a smart way to prepare your home for the upcoming summer season while taking advantage of favourable weather conditions - but nothing should be done without first considering safety aspects of the task at hand - PPE is available from Greenplant to hire or purchase, to ensure you are working safely.
