Tips for a Clean & Tidy Space

As autumn approaches and the weather gets cooler, it's the perfect time to prepare your property for the changing season. A clean and tidy property ensures a smooth transition into the colder months. In this article, we'll offer valuable advice and suggestions on how to maintain your property's cleanliness and tidiness for the fall season.

One of the first tasks on your fall cleanup checklist should be leaf removal. Fallen leaves can accumulate quickly and create a messy yard. Use a rake or leaf blower to gather leaves into piles, which can then be bagged or added to your compost pile. Keeping your yard clear of leaves not only maintains cleanliness but also promotes a healthy lawn.

Clean gutters are essential during the fall season. Leaves and debris can clog your gutters, leading to water overflow and potential damage to your home's foundation. Regularly clean out your gutters to ensure they function correctly and divert rainwater away from your property.

If you have a garden, fall is an excellent time to clear out dead plants and vegetables. Remove weeds and mulch your garden beds to protect them during the winter months. Additionally, make sure to trim overgrown bushes and trees. Remove dead branches and limbs to enhance the overall health and safety of your outdoor space. Properly storing garden tools and equipment helps keep your property tidy.

Clean and store outdoor furniture in a protected area to prevent weather-related damage. If you do not have the space to store furniture, high-quality furniture covers are a great alternative.

Finally, mow your lawn one last time before winter and consider applying a fall fertilizer to promote root growth and a healthy lawn in the spring.

By following these tips and suggestions, you'll be well on your way to maintaining a clean and tidy property throughout the fall season.
