It’s Time for a Spring Awakening, Fayetteville!

Cooler weather has its perks, but seeing signs of spring after a long, cold winter is always refreshing! The first day of spring is March 20, and even if it doesn’t feel like it quite yet, warm weather and sunshine are just around the corner. Here are a few ways you can prepare for the new season and take full advantage of the beautiful spring days ahead of us in Fayetteville!

1. Spring Cleaning

Things can get a little cluttered when you’re stuck indoors hiding out from the cold all winter. Blooming flowers, bright sunshine and warm weather should give you the boost of energy you need to “spring” back into your cleaning routine. There are so many ways to freshen up your home for the new season. Consider packing up those winter coats and sweaters that are taking up so much space in your closet. Steam clean your carpets and scrub your hardwood floors until they shine like brand new. You’ll love how good your house looks (and how good you feel) when you’re all done!

2. Gardening

Time to put your green thumb to work! Even if it is still chilly outside, March is the perfect time to start preparing your garden. Start by cleaning up any remnants of last year’s plants that didn’t quite make it through the winter. Then, you can use those decaying plants to boost nutrients in the soil for the new plants! There are plenty of crops that thrive in cooler spring weather. You’ll be glad you got a head start when you collect your fresh veggies in the early summer!

3. Outdoor Workouts

Spring cleaning isn’t just for your home. You can clean up your fitness routine, too! There’s no better time to start shaping up for summer than the beginning of spring. You can finally ditch your winter indoor gym routine and move your workout outdoors. Jog around the neighborhood, play your favorite outdoor sport, go on a bike ride — the possibilities are endless! You’ll look and feel better than ever when summer comes around.

Are you as ready for spring as we are, Fayetteville? We hope these tips help you say “goodbye” to winter and “hello” to warmer spring weather!

How We Said Goodbye to Summer!

Around 400 members of the Fayetteville community gathered to say goodbye to summer and hello to the new school year at our block party last weekend!
