Fall To-do list

  Fall checklist to get your house and yard ready;


Make sure you know how each of your plants and trees need to be prepped for winter. Some require being cut back in fall and others in spring. Cutting back your plants and trees ensures they come back better every spring. 

Prep your lawn for fall and winter by using the correct fertilizer for fall lawn prep. Doing this will help bring back a beautiful green lawn come spring time. 

Check concrete around your home for any cracks or severe wear. Cracks can become worse during the cold months so make sure to fix them early. Most small cracks can be fixed with an affordable bonding agent found at home improvement stores. 

Be sure to store away hoses and drain outdoor faucets and sprinkler systems so they don't crack during the cold winter months. Cover or store patio furniture and outdoor toys to protect from the snow and sun.

Walk around the house and make sure all the doors and windows have proper weather stripping. Good weather stripping can save a lot of money on your heating bill. Make sure you are replacing your furnace air filters and keeping intake vents clean of dust and debris. I like to set a reminder on my phone so I don't forget to replace them. There are also services now that will send them on a regular basis so you don't have to remember when to replace them.

Cold fall and winter months are the perfect time to purge and clear out the house. Give us a call to schedule a bin if you need us to haul away your junk. Thank you for your time!

Look on the bright side

Times are tough, we are all trying to make the best of staying home to be safe. Being home so much has really made me pay attention to all the home repairs and updates that I've been putting off. All this time home can be an opportunity to update your house and fix up your yard.

Here is a list of quick and easy fixes to get you started:

Replace the blinds and curtains if needed, if still in good shape take them all down and clean them. Since they are down use this time to give the window a really good clean, Make sure to clean the window track.

Paint your front door. This is a really easy and cheap way to spruce up your home. A fresh coat of paint can really make a big difference.

Change out your shower curtains, bathroom rugs, and other decor. Inexpensive and can really update the space.

Weed your yard often, weeds spread fast so it's best to stay up on the weeding. Clean the cracks of the driveway and sidewalks.

I like to sweep off the sidewalks, driveway, porch area, and the gutter in front of our house. This keeps our house looking clean and well cared for.

Make the best of your time home and tackle those home repair projects. Stay safe and healthy!

Start spring cleaning early

Spring cleaning can be a big chore and some people just skip over it after feeling to overwhelmed with a long list of to-dos. Taking the time to slowly start the process can help make spring cleaning far more manageable. January and February can be super cold months so put the time spent indoors to good use.

Closets are always a good place to start getting rid of cluttering, they are areas that collect so much stuff. Go from room to room cleaning out and reorganizing the closets. Tackle those "junk" drawers while you're at it.

Clean out clothes that don't fit or are out of style.

Go through the kitchen and get rid of old appliances and dishes. Clean out pantries, fridges, and freezes.

If you still have energy and time go through any storage rooms in your house and clear out the stuff that hasn't been used in 3 years and has no use or sentimental value.

Doing these tasks before spring will give you a great head start to spring cleaning and more time to enjoy the lovely spring weather.
