THE BEST TIPS TO PREPARE YOUR HOME FOR COOLER WEATHER

For most of us, Fall is about the beauty of the colorful leaves, the flavor of a pumpkin spice latte, and the fun of Halloween.  It is also a good time to prepare your home for rough conditions, as the first winter storm has a habit of sneaking up on you (unless you happen to live in one of those always-sunny states).

Below are some handy tips to help you prepare your home for cooler weather:

STORAGE AND PROTECTION

Look into some new storage options to make sure you have somewhere to keep your outdoor items that are safe and secure.  This includes everything in your garage, shed, etc.  A color coded system of storage bins works well for sorting small things, while heavy duty wire shelving or open steel shelving will work for heavier objects.  You also need to ensure that your outdoor furniture is protected from the elements with tarps to avoid cold moisture which can freeze and cause damage.

PREPARE YOUR GARDEN FOR SPRING

Everything you can do to help your lawn and garden survive the cold will pay dividends in the spring.  That means keeping up with regular mowing and watering of grass, and clearing fallen leaves.  Furthermore, the perennials in your garden should be trimmed with pruning shears.  Also, keep your patio areas from getting grimy and slippery by pressure washing them.

PREPARE FOR ICY WEATHER

As Fall moves towards winter, icy mornings will become more common and you need to ensure that the weather doesn’t affect your ability to go about your daily business.  Driveway heating cables will help you do that by eliminating unwanted ice.  Moreover, de-icing cables can be used to eliminate ice on roofs to avoid ice dams and snow buildup.

INVEST IN LIGHTING

As the nights will become darker earlier in the coming months, you may need to think about adding more illumination to your yard or outdoor pathway to give you better access after the sun goes down, and also boost your overall security. During the Fall and Winter season, outdoor lighting becomes very important.

Backyard Maintenance Tips

The kids are back in school and summer will soon be over. The end of summer means cooler weather which can wreak havoc on your backyard. If you want to keep your yard beautiful for the next spring season, there are a few steps you can take to make that happen.

1.) Clean up all leaves before the first snowfall. If you have a mulch mower, you can also turn them into clippings for fertilization. Leaving tree leaves on the ground in your backyard can suffocate the grass resulting in bare spots.

2.) Pull up your annuals and use pruning shears to cut back older or decaying branches from your perennials in preparation of the winter season. You should also mulch the soil around the plants with either hay, straw or peat moss to protect them from ice and freezing. Continue to water these plants when there is a lack of rain or snowfall.

 

3.) Kill weeds like dandelions and clovers in the yard with a herbicide.

 

4.) Aerate the lawn and if rain is lacking, water it as needed. Be sure however not to over water.

 

5.) Apply a dry fertilizer to your lawn and lay grass seed to fill in sparse areas or dead patches in the yard.

 

6.) Once the cold weather hits, wrap tree trunks and your shrubs to protect them from the bright and potentially dangerous winter sun. It should remain there until early spring.

Before the end of the season, give your grass a final cut with your mower on a slightly lower setting than normal.  This length of grass will do well under the snow.
