Fall has arrived and after it comes impending winter. Whether you enjoy the snow and cold that are on their way or not, here are a few tips to help you get ready for the winter season with chores which are much easier done in the fall.
Plant Fall Bulbs
If you want to enhance your landscaping next spring, fall is the time to plant certain bulbs. Make your plans and get to it before the ground gets too cold and hard to take any kind of shovel at all.
Clean Out the Gardens
Even if you kept on top of weeds all summer long, you’ll want to completely clean out your garden before winter hits. It’ll make next spring much easier when you are ready to plant and nurture once again.
Repair and Clean Deck Cushions
Once the fall air hits and you find yourself avoiding the deck, bring those cushions in. Make repairs after the long summer months and give everything a thorough cleaning. Then store them somewhere safe until next season rolls around again.
Check Your Gutters
In the fall, keep your gutters free of leaves and other debris. Consider adding a leaf guard of some kind. This makes sure they are ready for the winter months. You never know how much snow will fall or if an ice storm will hit. Your gutters are an important part of your roof, it’s good to ensure they are ready to roll into the next season.
If you have concerns about or notice damage to your gutter or roof, fall is a good time to get an inspection done so you know everything is safe and secure for the winter. The last thing you want is for an issue to arise in the midst of an awful cold snap.
