Can you believe that summer is almost over? It won’t be long now before we’re planning for the holidays. Before you get too deep into fall, you may want to take a weekend to get your home ready. Here are some great things to add to your to do list to prep your home for the fall:
The fall is the perfect time to cut back bushes, shrubs and flowers. It’s also when you should prune your trees. It’s important that you pay close attention to the trees that are taller than your home. As the summer of storms has proven, it doesn’t take much to bring down a tree onto a house for power line. If you’re not sure how healthy your tree is, then it might be a smart move to bring in a professional to check it out.
Bring In Flowerpots
If you had a very blooming spring and summer, then it’s time to bring those flowerpots inside. Of course, that only pertains to year-round plants. If you replace your plants every year, then empty and clean out the dry pots and put them away for next spring. If you plant bulbs for spring, then this is the best time to get them into the ground.
Rake Up Leaves
Depending upon the amount of tree coverage you have on your property, raking leaves can be a never-ending battle until winter. But it is a job that needs to be done especially if you plan on fertilizing your lawn. While you are raking the leaves make sure you take the time out to clean your rain gutters as well.
Close Down the Pool
If you have a backyard pool, then it’s a good idea to close it down for the season. This might mean draining some of the water and putting the cover on top. You would know best how often your pool freezes over in the winter. If you have seasonal patio furniture, then it’s also a good idea to remove the cushions wash them and then store them in the garage.
