Winter is finally coming to an end and the spring weather is moving in. With the change of the seasons, it is time for spring cleaning. On the last Beyond the Bounce post, Shayna talked about spring cleaning your life, but sometimes spring cleaning outside can make a big impact.
After months of cold, snow, and ice, there is undoubtedly lots of work to be done in the yard. The first step is to assess the damage. Take note of any weeds that need pulling, shrubs that need pruning, and grass that needs watering. Make a list and take a Saturday afternoon to get outside and spring clean your yard. It’s even more fun if you can get the family involved.
It can be difficult to make spring chores fun, but encourage your family to join in by creating a little “minute to win it” game. Who can pull the most weeds in one minute? Which family member can hold a full watering can for the longest? These mini-games make yard work a lot more fun for the whole family.
Once the yard is cleaned up, don't forget to do the same with your Springfree Trampoline. Do a quick wash of the mat with water and a light dish detergent, or a power-washer if you have access to one. Avoid using chemical based soaps on the mat as they might corrode the material. Crawl under the trampoline, or “persuade” one of the family to do it instead and do a quick look over of the mat rod holders that hold the rods in place. If you see any cracks or missing mat rod holders, call our customer care team at Springfree to find the best solution. Lastly, set up your FlexiNet if you lowered it during the winter months. Get your Springfree Trampoline ready for spring so you can get jumping right away!
