As the leaves begin to fall, you can keep your home’s exterior looking pristine this season with our six tips for outdoor fall maintenance. Let’s take a look!
Outdoor Fall Maintenance Tips:
Tip One: Fall Flowers.
As the season changes, the flowers change with it. You can plant all new flowers in your garden bed or simply add potted flowers around your home. Potted flowers are an easier, more temporary option for homeowners who do not have a lot of time to spend gardening. Plus, as Ohio’s weather gets colder, you can bring your plants indoors to keep them warm during the harsh winter.
Tip Two: Tidy up.
Depending on where you live, the leaves may have already started falling. You will want to keep up with collecting the leaves that fall in your yard and placing them in collection bags. By keeping up with it, you can save yourself from more work at the end of the season. Plus, if it ends up snowing earlier than expected, you will not have to rack up snowy leaves.
Tip Three: Front Door Focus.
Make sure to decorate the area surrounding your front door. You may have a lot of visitors during this time of year, and you can show off your style with nice decor pieces. Try lining pumpkins up your outdoor stairway for a dramatic entrance or placing a decorative wreath on your front door. Finish it off the look with a fall-themed doormat!
Tip Four: The Pressure is on.
During the holidays, your home may be looked at a lot by strangers. Impress the neighborhood by power washing your home and cleaning all of the windows. Trust us, it can take your house to the next level of curb appeal.
Tip Five: Get Rid of Gunk.
Fall is an excellent time to get rid of any gunk or build-up that may have occurred in your gutters. If you wait until after winter, the leaves will be damp and may be harder to get out. Before it snows, make sure you have your gutters cleaned and ready for next year.
We hope you enjoyed these tips and tricks, and have a great season.
