This infographic was submitted to us by Rick’s Fencing.

There’s a lot of great information here about how to get your home looking great for spring (and into summer!). I like the lead-in with the outdoor scene and numbers representing each of the tips to come. For the most part, the visuals are working to explain without including too much text — the only exceptions are Repairing Fence Rails and Deck Cleaning (click here for more information on cedar decks). It would have been great to see each step that’s explained in Repairing Fence Rails show up as its own image. Similarly, the point about deck cleaner strength could have been shown with three annotated clocks — too strong, too weak, and just right, showing the associated lengths of time.

In fact, Fertilizing Your Yard could have illustrated crabgrass and fertilizer with pre-emergent for Early Spring, and broadleaf weeds and “weed-n-feed” fertilizer for Late Spring, too. The more work the illustrations can do to tell the story, the better!

Since there isn’t much data here, it’s hard to critique as a traditional infographic, but I think overall it does a good job of explaining how to get your spring ready the DIY way! I’d give it a B as a guide, since a few extra illustrations could remove some text.
