Winter can be Hard on Homes, and Fall is your last chance to get your Home in top shape to withstand any Harsh Winter Weather
One of the first tasks you should tackle in the fall is cutting your grass short, and fall fertilize. Also drain all fuel from your lawn mower and give it a good cleaning, before you store it away for the winter.
Before winter comes, get your plants in good shape to survive harsh weather by pruning them back and removing any dead branches or buds. Add mulch to garden beds so they’ll be ready for new growth in the spring. If you have cold-sensitive plants, you may want to winterize them by covering them with sheets of burlap.
Take the time to clean out gutter and downspouts when leaves are falling. If you let leaves pile up in your window wells, they can trap water, causing the wells to flood. Clean them out whenever needed in the fall, so water can drain properly during winter.
One of the easiest and most cost-effective ways to spruce up the front of your home is to give the front door a fresh coat of paint.
