For most people, fall is the best time of year. The leaves are changing colors, the weather has cooled down, and you’re able to enjoy all the work you’ve done on your yard and home during the summer. However, if you were sidetracked this summer, you may not have gotten everything done on your home that you wanted to. The good news is that early fall is still a good time to get things don’t without getting snowed on. In this blog, we’re going to take a look at some of the top ways to keep your home looking great this fall.
Start With The Lawn
Chances are, your lawn will look its best in the fall. Leaves add that extra splash of color the lawn needs in order to stand out. However, that doesn’t mean leaves should be used to cover up all the brown spots. Before leaves even begin to fall, you should keep up with your lawn maintenance. Once leaves have started to fall, make sure you don’t let them build up too much. If there are too many leaves on the lawn it will look tacky and give off the impression that you’re not willing to maintain your yard.
Invest In New Outdoor Furniture
Outdoor furniture is one of the best things to spruce up your home in the fall. This past summer has been a hot one in Colorado, so if you didn’t get to spend much time out on your patio or deck, early fall may be the best time to spend some time outside. If your outdoor tables or chairs are looking a little rough, be sure to replace them before fall comes around.
Keep Gutters Clear
The last thing you’ll want to deal with in the fall is a damaged roof or flooded home. If you have trees that hang over your roof, you’re going to want to check your gutters regularly to make sure they aren’t getting clogged with leaves. Use a broom to get them out, just make sure you don’t lean on the gutter and break it, this could lead to costly repairs.
Add Outdoor Lighting
As fall approaches, one thing is for certain: days are starting to get shorter. As a result, you’re going to need an appropriate amount of outdoor lighting in order to navigate the outside of your home safely. Consider adding stair lighting on your deck or patio and replacing front porch lights if they’ve burnt out.
