With leaves falling to the ground left & right, autumn is the most important & necessary time of year to clean up the exterior of your New England home. Check out these tips to make your fall clean up easy & efficient. Once you follow these simple steps, your landscape will look pristine and ready for the fall!
Tools & Supplies You Will Need:
- Rake, shovels, garden hoe & seed spreader
- Protective gardening gloves
- Heavy duty trash bags or buckets
- Grass seed, fertilizer, & fresh soil
- Seasonal plant bulbs & decor
Clean Out Your Gutters
Don’t forget that your home’s gutters can collect debris and easily clog. Failing to clear them out can result in them separating from your roof & causing serious damage to your foundation. Remember that cleaning your gutters by yourself can be unsafe if you are not used to climbing ladders, and that hiring someone who is not professional can lead to a job that is not well done & makes you liable for potential accidents. A professional gutter company that is fully licensed & insured is often the best option for homeowners looking for quick & high quality gutter work.
Clean Up the Yard & Landscape
Next it is time to gather & bag the debris covering your yard. Gloves will help for this as you will encounter leaves, sticks, and possibly even some garbage scattered around your property. To make debris collection easier, you might want to rake into rows or onto a tarp. Don’t forget to clean out any garden & shrub areas. This might be the time to power wash your deck, patio, or any outdoor furniture as well.
Add Soil, Re-Seed, and Plant Seasonal Bulbs
After a hot summer, your grass is in need of soil & nutrients. Once you have cleared the yard of debris, it’s time to plant & restore nourishment. Fresh seed, fertilizer, & watering will give it the refresh it needs just in time for fall. This is also the time to add some mulch and decor for for the season! This is when your gardening tools & gloves will again come in handy.
Remove the Debris
Yard clean ups are guaranteed to result in the accumulation of countless bags full of leaves and debris. First make sure that you are using properly sized, quality trash bags that won’t rip open and ruin your progress. Next, you will have to think about where to dispose of these bags. Although you can choose to haul them to a dump yourself, hiring a junk removal service can save you time & save your car from a potential mess. If you are too busy & don’t want to deal with the hassle of a do-it-yourself fall cleanup, some junk removal companies will even collect, bag, and remove debris for you.
