Spring in Sydney becomes totally worth it when you get ample time to spend with your family relaxing in your yard on your favourite rocking chair.
Moreover, there are tons of activities you can do while sipping a chilled drink and spending the entire day. But to enjoy with your family or friends you need a spick and span front yard that is ready to welcome the folks.
Not everyone pays attention to their yard, as a result, it gets dirty; it is more likely that you will drop the idea of spending a day on the yard after seeing its condition.
Wait, here is a DIY guide that will help you clean the front yard so that it looks neat and clean. Read on to find where to start and where to end!
Get Some Free Space
Start by decluttering the yard. Move the plant pots and furniture that you have kept in the yard so that you get enough space to clean it. Furthermore, remove the lampshades and removable wall sconces as well so that you can clean them as well.
Some people use their yard as a place for temporary storage, if you are one of those, then get rid of the clutter and make some free space so that the yard looks clean.
A clean yard is not only ideal for spending quality time with your friends and family, but also it adds value to your home, so it should be neat and clean all the time.
Start with the Cleaning
To start with the cleaning, you need the following essentials:
- Cobweb removes
- Vacuum cleaner
- Floor mop
- Microfiber cloths
- Old rags
- The cleaning solution of liquid detergent
- Safety glasses and gloves (keep in mind the do’s and don’ts while using gloves for cleaning)
When was the last time you cleaned the front yard? If you don’t remember, then get ready for some serious action as you have to deal with cobwebs, dirty walls, and stained floors. Spiders and other such insects would have considered your yard as their permanent residence, and it is the time to show them the way out.
Start by removing the cobwebs, use a broom with a long stick so that you can clean every corner with ease. After removing the cobwebs, it is time to wipe the walls.
Use an old rag and then start dusting the walls and other places such as the wall sconce holder, the mailbox, and other accessories or artefacts. Clean everything that you see around the front yard, including the surrounding walls.
Finish off by mopping the floor using a floor cleaner detergent and a mop. Put the accumulated debris into the trash bin and then move forward to the next step.
We understand that it can feel overwhelming after hearing that you have so much to do, but there is a way out that will save you from the hassle! Hire the best professional cleaners in Sydney and sit back while watching your yard getting cleaned.
Give the Windows Your Special Care
The windows deserve your special care as dirty wood will damage much easier. Windows are an essential part of every house and contribute a lot to its value.
Use an old cloth and clean the window panes thoroughly. To clean the glass, use a good-quality glass cleaner and wipe off all the stains and marks that you see on the window glass.
When cleaning the glass move the sponge in a circular motion as this is the best technique to clean the glass.
A pro tip: If you don’t have a sponge to clean the glass, use old newspapers. Crush the newspaper and then clean the glass thoroughly.
Wash the Entire Yard
After your special attention to the windows, it is the time to wash the yard. Use a water hose and get a brush with a long handle so that you can wash the entire yard with ease. If possible, get a pressure washer so that you can remove the dust and dirt effectively.
Furthermore, you can also create pressure with the regular water hose by using the finger block technique. If you aren’t getting good pressure from the hose, follow these tips to fix the issue.
When washing the yard, avoid spraying water on electrical appliances such as the wall sconces, light fixtures, and switchboards.
Remove Stains and Spots
Yes, you can hide the stains and spots on the walls by using plant pots and paintings, but cleaning them would be even better. Get a good-quality cleaning solution and a sponge to remove the stains and spots.
You may find removing the stubborn stains a bit challenging, but believe us it is worth the efforts. In case you aren’t able to clean the stains or you think it isn’t your cup of tea, give a shot to the professional cleaners.

Sweep the Floor
Now it is the time to sweep the floor so that you can make it ready for the furniture and other stuff that you have removed before cleaning. Get some help from your friends or hire professional cleaners as sweeping the entire yard can be a hassle.
