Head Out And Enjoy The Sun
Turn off that television and head outside. Spending time outside is healthy for you, and you are saving energy by not having the lights or television on. This is a great time to take a look around your outdoor spaces and see what you want to change. Is it too dark? Then take the time to plan some outdoor lighting for your patio space.
Not enough shrubbery? Discuss a reasonable landscaping budget and plan around that. Sometimes simply adding to planters can go along way. They add beauty to the space and they help the Earth too!
Grab Some Gardening Tools And Do Some Spring Cleaning In Your Yard
Get your kids involved and out and away from that energy-sucking video game console. The bonus is you can chat with your kids while getting your outside ready for the Spring and Summer months.
Remember that shed you took the time to organize when you cleaned your outside spaces during the Fall? You should be able to easily find your gardening tools, so go ahead and get started on those gardening ideas to celebrate Earth Day.
You will feel accomplished, your spaces will look amazing, and you are helping out the environment.

Volunteer To Plant Trees For Earth Day
One of the best ways to give back on Earth Day is to plant more trees. Check with your local church or gardening center to see how you can help. Just think, each year you can go back and visit “your trees” to see how they are growing and thriving.
You and your family will feel accomplished and happy knowing that you did your part to make the environment a better place for everyone!
Prepare Your Deck For The Summer Months
We spend a lot of time outside during the summer. Take a few moments to clean and prepare your deck for the Summer. Take the time to do the same things you did to prepare your deck for the Winter months. This is especially important if you had a hard Winter.
Once your deck is cleaned and ready to go, put your deck furniture back on it. Feel like it’s missing something? Why not add some greenery to your patio area. Here are some great plants for patios to get you started.
