Fall maintenance checklist

  Fall checklist to get your house and yard ready;


Make sure you know how each of your plants and trees need to be prepped for winter. Some require being cut back in fall and others in spring. Cutting back your plants and trees ensures they come back better every spring. 

Prep your lawn for fall and winter by using the correct fertilizer for fall lawn prep. Doing this will help bring back a beautiful green lawn come spring time. 

Check concrete around your home for any cracks or severe wear. Cracks can become worse during the cold months so make sure to fix them early. Most small cracks can be fixed with an affordable bonding agent found at home improvement stores. 

Be sure to store away hoses and drain outdoor faucets and sprinkler systems so they don't crack during the cold winter months. Cover or store patio furniture and outdoor toys to protect from the snow and sun.

Walk around the house and make sure all the doors and windows have proper weather stripping. Good weather stripping can save a lot of money on your heating bill. Make sure you are replacing your furnace air filters and keeping intake vents clean of dust and debris. I like to set a reminder on my phone so I don't forget to replace them. There are also services now that will send them on a regular basis so you don't have to remember when to replace them.

Cold fall and winter months are the perfect time to purge and clear out the house. Give us a call to schedule a bin if you need us to haul away your junk. Thank you for your time!
