3 Important Fall Outdoor Maintenance Tips
#1 Shrubs & Trees |If you have trees or large shrubs on your property it is important that you spend some time trimming them back and eliminating any weak limbs. You should also check for their health; this is important in ensuring any heavy winds or snowfalls will not cause the tree or any of its limbs to fall. You can also call in a certified arborist to do this for you.
#2 Faucets & Hoses |
Shut off any exterior faucets around your property and put away any hoses in a warm place. This should be done mid-fall to help avoid exterior pipes from freezing and causing bigger issues.
#3 Down Spouts & Gutters |
Once a majority of the leaves around your property have fallen, some downspout and gutter maintenance is required. Clean all the fall leaves out of your gutters. If you are not comfortable on a ladder, there are professionals you can call to do this. This will help prevent water from pooling and causing damage.
Since the fall weather is (mostly) ideal for outdoor projects, be sure to complete any outdoor repairs before winter comes and it is too late. We hope these fall outdoor maintenance tips will help keep your property in good shape through the winter.
