Fall Lawn Maintenance

Breath in the crisp autumn air and let the crunching of leaves underneath your feet be the musical soundtrack to this colorful season. Grab your family and go outside to rake, pile and leap into your fall foliage with weekly rakings to keep your yard looking pristine. Don’t forget to periodically clean your gutters of leaves and debris as buildup could lead to water damage, something no homeowner wants.

Additionally, it’s important to continue to fertilize and mow your lawn throughout the fall season to prevent winter harm to your landscape.

Clean Exterior

Oh, and while that pressure washer is out don’t forget about your driveway. A driveway is at the forefront of your curb appeal and normally the first part of your home people see when driving by or coming to your house. Inspect it for any cracks and fix them with sealant. Since the temperature outside should be getting cooler, this undertaking shouldn’t be too unbearable.
