Fall to dos

  Holidays are coming and usually that's when we are at our busiest. Take some stress off your plate by doing some cold weather prep now. Here is a simple list to get you started:

Prune plants, trees, and any bushes.

Rake leaves as they fall to keep rot off your grass.

clean out your garage and storage areas.

Check your furnace and filter.

Clean out roofing gutters and check downspouts for any blockages.

Consider carpet cleaning to get rid of the summer dirt.

Prep lawn with fall fertilizer and make sure to keep your lawn cut to at about 2-2 1/2 inches long. This is ideal to prevent snow mold and not too short to stress your grass during the winter. Now is a good time to overseed, just make sure to aerate first.

Check you seals around windows and doors.

Before it starts to reach freezing temperatures shut down sprinklers and drain outside faucets.

 Cover patio furniture and make sure to store your yard equipment and make any required preparations.
