If you are like the rest of us here on Home Run Real Estate Team, it can be difficult to keep up with yard maintenance during the heat of the summer. Now that the weather is starting to come down to a simmer, it is time to complete those last few items on your summer yard maintenance checklist to ensure that your yard will survive another fall/winter season.
We were able to find a great little reminder with tips to simplify the tasks from our friends over at American Financial Resources Inc. and thought it was the perfect article to share with our audience. To view the original article on their website click here.
Tune-Up Your Lawn Mower – Never cut the grass while it is wet as it can damage the blades and put unnecessary strain on the engine. Check oil, spark plugs, sharpen blades, and keep under carriage free from grass and debris or take it to a local repair shop to get a tune-up. When storing for the late fall/ winter season, be sure to use all of the gas to avoid it sitting in the tank for months on end.
Clean the Gutters – If you are like most homeowners, this can be the most dreaded maintenance task of all. However, since you probably have a year’s worth of debris clogging those tubes, it is a very good ideas to clean and flush them out before we are bombarded with all of that lovely fall foliage that is to come in the next few months. Since the weather has been significantly cooler as of late, it is the perfect time to get outside and take care of that pesky task to avoid erosion of your lawn and garden bed and not to mention roof leakage from water build-up.
