If you’re not planning a last minute getaway for the end of summer, Labor Day weekend is a great time to tackle the home improvement projects you’ve been putting off. Here are 3 easy outdoor projects you can finish over the long weekend.

1) Reseed your lawn.

Long dry summers can leave lawns looking a little bare by the time September rolls around. Take advantage of the nice weather and weekend off by reseeding any dry patches so your lawn will stay healthy through fall.

2) Weed your garden.

Ridding your garden of unsightly weeds is one home improvement project everyone dreads, but it’s a great way to instantly up your curb appeal and keep your lawn and garden healthy. Save your back and hands by using a claw weeder tool to knock the job out in an afternoon.

3) Plant spring flowering bulbs.

The beginning of fall is a great time to plant spring flowering bulbs like tulips and daffodils. Though you’ll have to wait through winter to enjoy the pop of color they bring to your garden, a little labor on Labor Day weekend will definitely pay off later.
