As one of the most beautiful times of the year. It is also one of the messiest. Not only will you be digging your hand in the guts of a pumpkin, all those beautiful colors that cascade the landscape need to be raked up and disposed of. This may seem obvious to most but it needs to be done. Leaves need to be removed from the yard so the grass doesn’t get smothered. Also cleanup needs to happen in the roof gutters.
Winterizing your home is a very important for October and includes multiple tasks. Here are a few:
- Winterize air conditioning
- Turn water off to outdoor faucets
- Winterize sprinkler system.
- Drain and store outside hoses
- Repair/replace caulk and weatherstrip around doors and window.
