Don't be creepin'

Don't let fall sneak up on you! Make sure to get that fall and winter prep to do list updated and done.

Things that should be on any list:

Fall fertilizer for your lawn, shrubs and trees.
Prune any plants that need to be trimmed before winter,
Make sure your sprinklers are leak free and ready to be shut off
Clean your gutters and repair any damage to gutters, it's also good to make sure the down spout drains at least one foot from your foundation.

Extra prep that just makes life easier during the chilly months:

Install a heated drip line above entry ways to keep snow and ice buildup away.
Check that all the insulation on doors and windows are in good shape.
If you like Christmas lights consider hanging the attachment hooks now, they come in all colors and even clear so they blend nicely and don't have to be taken down.
Go through your closets and store all your warm weather clothes in bins to make room for fluffy sweaters.
Donate old coats and blankets to a good cause.
Get a 5 gallon bucket so you can water your trees during the winter.
