Just because the weather gets colder, doesn’t mean you should hibernate inside this fall. Investing some time in outdoor maintenance now not only keeps the yard looking beautiful throughout the season, but provides a strong foundation for healthy growth in spring, minimizing repairs after a cold winter. It’s that time of year - the leaves are turning, plants have outgrown their space, and dirt has gathered on outdoor surfaces over the summer. The most efficient way to start is at the top, by pruning trees, trimming hedges and cleaning gutters. After that, work your way down. Protect your deck by cleaning and staining it, close the pool and start composting. Finish on the ground with a little lawn maintenance, garden sweep and overall assessment.
A proper fall yard cleanup puts you ahead of the game when spring arrives.
