The experts at True Value know that the best summer moments are earned. Here are a few DIY project ideas and tips from the True Value DIY Squad to help earn the satisfaction of a job well done.

Yard Clean Up
Can you see it now? A sunny day, cool grass and a perfectly landscaped yard you completed in the spring. Small landscaping projects such as edging and mulching can make a huge difference in the way your yard looks. Edging offers functional benefits by separating the garden from the rest of the yard, and keeps plants healthy in the gardening bed. Mulch improves the soil quality by allowing more water and air movement through the soil.
“Even if you live in a warm climate, your grass is likely looking brown or tan, rather than green,” says Danika Herrick, blogger for Gorgeous Shiny Things and a member of the True Value DIY Squad. “Yard improvement doesn’t have to be daunting. Simple weekend projects like edging, mulching or even fertilizing give your lawn the nutrients and updates it needs for strong roots and a lush green appearance that will last all summer long.”
