Preparing Your Home For Fall - The Outside Edition
The days are getting shorter. The leaves are changing colors. School is back in session. And it’s time to prep your home for fall.
Here’s a convenient checklist of outdoor tasks. Some are easy DIY items, while others may require the services of a professional.
Start at the top!
Remove debris from gutters, check for loose shingles and make sure the fireplace flue is clear. Always exercise caution when on the roof.
Rake the yard – or use a leaf blower
– and dispose of leaves in an approved manner. Some areas ban burning, so check your city and county laws.
After checking windows and doors
for gaps and leaks, apply caulk and replaced damaged weatherstripping.
Sweep the sidewalks, driveway, steps and deck
. Look for cracks and damage, and arrange for any needed repairs.
Apply seasonal lawn care products
and plant fall bulbs, as appropriate for your region.
Thoroughly clean your grill
and, if possible, store away from the elements. Same goes for outdoor furniture.
Evaluate your inventory of tools and clean them.
Track down items you’ve loaned out, donate tools you no longer need and organize for future use.
Finally, take a walk around your property
to look for any other climate-appropriate projects.
