March weather can be unpredictable. However, regardless of what the weather is doing, March is a great time to start over. There are a number of things you can do in order to start your spring off the right way. Below is a list of things that should be on your March to-do list:

Plant A Tree

If you want to plant a tree, then spring is the best time of the year to do it. The cooler temperatures and wet weather make it easier for plants to grow. However, you should do some research and find out which trees will do best in your climate. It is a good idea to wait for the last frost before you try to plant a tree.

Inspect The Interior Of Your Home

Simplify Your Cupboard

If your cupboards are feeling cluttered, then you may want to get rid of some of your glassware and dishes. Chipped pieces and mismatched pieces are examples of things that you may want to get rid of.

Give Your Kitchen A Spring Cleaning

Now is a great time to give your kitchen a makeover. You should start by cleaning up areas that you may have missed the last time that you cleaned. This includes things such as the range hood and light fixtures. You should also clean the grout and vacuum the places that are hard to reach, such as behind the stove.
