While DIY is always at the top of many people’s to-do list there is one part of DIY that can frustrate people and that is that some projects just seem to go on forever, leaving swaths of your home out of bounds for weeks at a time as you chip away at a project after work and over weekends.

To alleviate your stress, we’ve compiled a helpful list of 4 DIY tasks that can be done start to finish in less than a week, making sure that all your spare time for the next months isn’t spent doing DIY, when you could be spending time with your loved ones and planning your Summer BBQs!

Then during the weekend, dig up the space you marked out on your lawn removing the grass and leaving the soil below. Once the grass is removed, simply just plant your new flowers and add soil as necessary to complete your flowerbeds.
