The transitional seasons such as spring and fall are great times for a homeowner to get projects done inside the home and out in the yard. There are also a few essential tasks that should always be done during these seasons each year. This is especially true when it comes to your yard. Harsh weather in the winter can cause expensive damage if not properly prepared for. |
Winterizing your sprinkler system is one important task that should always be done every fall in order to avoid damaged pipes, hoses, or sprinkler heads. Consult with a sprinkler system professional to find out the best way to winterize your particular sprinkling system. Another important part of winterizing your home is cleaning out your gutters. Gutters that are clogged with leaves and debris can keep water from draining off the roof properly. Water that gets clogged in the gutter can freeze during the winter, preventing the gutter from channeling water off your roof and away from your home and foundation.
However, getting up on your roof to clean the gutter can be dangerous. It may be best to hire a company that specializes in gutter cleaning to empty out your gutters and ensure that your roof has proper drainage during the winter season. Yard and garden tools should also be cleaned and stored. Lawn mowers, edging machines, chainsaws, and weed trimmers should be drained of fuel and stored somewhere dry for the duration of the winter season. Garden hoses should be drained of all water and stored as well. Doing these tasks will ensure that everything will last through the winter.
