There’s something really fun that we do here at Thrift Diving at least twice a year and that’s 30-day room challenge makeovers! We’ve been doing them for 4 years now, helping each other to turn around the rooms in our house, one at a time.
But a year ago I took our 30-day challenge and turned it into an outdoor makeover challenge! And I brought along RYOBI Landscapes since they’re all about making outsides look amazing.
Unfortunately, we did the outdoor challenge so late in the season it was too hot for many people to participate.
So this year, I’m teaming up RYOBI Landscapes, who is sponsoring this challenge (and providing prizes) and I’m excited that we’re getting started early enough in the spring that everyone should be able to join (unless you’re one of the few unfortunate states covered in snow–eek!).
We kicked off the challenge on April 1st and we should finish up by April 30th (unless we extend it due to weather issues). At the end of the challenge, several lucky challenge participants will win some awesome RYOBI Outdoors swag!
But this really isn’t about winning prizes. This is about getting off our butts and focusing an entire month on one part of our homes that is often forgotten: the outside.
Warm weather will soon follow, so we’ve got to get those patios cleaned up for sitting, those flower beds ready for planting, and that grass ready for clipping.
Here we go!

We’re also pretty active in our 30-Day Challenge Facebook group during challenges and it’s fun to keep up with everyone’s daily progress and pictures.
At the end of the challenge, you’ll send me your “AFTER” pictures and they’ll also get uploaded to Thrift Diving to show off to everyone. All the “AFTER” pictures must be submitted to me by Thursday, May 3rd.

WEEK 1: Pressure Washing!
The weather here in Maryland has been insanely odd–one day it’s 75 degrees and the next there are snow flurries.
Need I remind you that it’s–ahem–April??
Somehow I think Mother Nature didn’t get the memo.
So when we had a random warm day, I suited up in my gardening boots, pulled out my new RYOBI 2300 PSI brushless electric pressure washer that they sent me to use for this challenge (one lucky reader will win one at the end of the challenge!), and got busy blasting away a year’s worth of gunk!
Watch the pressure washing in action!
A big thanks to RYOBI Outdoor tools for supplying the pressure washer!
Be sure to come back each week of the challenge to see new videos and watch my progress and learn more about RYOBI Outdoor tools for making your yard amazing!
