With spring less than a month away, it’s time to start thinking about outdoor home improvement projects. Does the driveway need to be graded, drainage ditches dug or a parcel of land cleared? Now is the time to consult your budget and begin lining up contractors to get the job done.

Considerations when Choosing a Spring Home Improvement Project

Budget – Can you afford it this year?
Timing – Is spring really the right time?
Contractor – Which 3 contractors are you going to get estimates from?
Priority – Can’t do all your projects at once? Which one is most needed?

Spring Outdoor Home Improvement Ideas

Driveway Repair
Land Clearing
Drainage Ditch Widening/Clearing
Outdoor Drainage Installation
Culvert Installation
New Lawns
Order Loam for Gardens
New Road/Driveway
Tree Removal

If you live in the north, you’ll have to wait for the frost to completely come out of the ground and the mud to dry before attempting to dig, especially before attempting large excavation projects. While waiting, plan ahead and prioritize everything on your list of projects.

What’s on your spring home improvement project to-do list?

Ever driven by a home and seen a sign that reads “Clean Fill Wanted”? Ever wondered what that really means? There are 5 types of fill commonly used in construction from filling in gaping holes and evening out the landscape. Before posting your own “Clean Fill Wanted” sign or placing an order from your local construction company, learn about the different types and what they are best used for.

Types of Fill

  • Organic Topsoil
  • Inorganic Topsoil
  • Sand/Gravel
  • Rock Fill
  • Compost/Mulch/Manure

1. Organic Topsoil

Organic topsoil doesn’t contain any chemicals or other pollutants and has very few rocks and debris. This is the best type of fill for gardens and landscaping or filling in small holes and depressions.

2. Inorganic Topsoil

This type of fill does contain some amount of debris such as roots or stone. It’s not as nutritious as organic topsoil and is best used to fill in large holes and depressions. Do not order inorganic fill, clean or otherwise, for growing lawns and plants.

3. Sand/Gravel

Some fill comes in the form of sand, gravel or rock or a mix of the three. This type of fill shouldn’t be used for landscaping but works great for filling in large holes and leveling land. Most sand and gravel fill is hauled off of job sites and may contain rocks.

4. Rock Fill

Rock fill comes in the form of different sized rocks. This type of fill is great for filling in large areas and decorating the landscape. Use rock fill to build raised garden beds, borders and walls.

5. Compost/Mulch/Manure

This type of fill is made up of organic materials, is full of nutrients and great for gardens. It’s recommended for new gardens or those that need a heavy dose of fertilizer.

When placing an order for fill, make sure that it is “clean.” Clean fill doesn’t contain large rocks and other debris. To order clean fill in Central Maine, contact Beaulieu Industries of Lewiston to place your order. We’ll help you decide on which type of fill best suits your needs and calculate how much you need.
