Get a head start on the fall chores with these tips and you can spend your time relaxing with a cup of hot chocolate. Here are a few things you can do to prep for the fall time.
Tackle those leaves
There is nothing more beautiful than watching the colors of the leaves changing on the trees; with that will come the leaves that pile up in front of your yard. Get a head start and begin raking the leaves and making piles. This will help ease your work load.
Clean out those gutters! Cleaning out clogged up gutters can save you a pretty penny down the line. Clogged gutters can cause ice damage and then your fall time will not be so nice. Doing it now before the weather starts to get cold makes it not so much of a task and more like some nice time spent outside.
Roof top problems
Get on top of those roof problems before fall makes it into a mountain of a problem. This may not be your favorite thing to do in your spare time, but getting a head start and tackling the problem will cause fewer headaches down the road.
Seal it up
Make sure that every nook and cranny is checked for cracks in your home. Check he windows, doors, everywhere! This will keep your home well insulated and it may save you a few bucks in the end.
Don’t freeze up
Areas that get frost or even snow can cause some irrigation systems to freeze up. Make sure to drain any outside faucets or irrigation, so that the water doesn’t get frozen up inside.
