Hiring a landscaper to do a fall cleanup saves you lots of time. But not all cleanups involve the yard. There are several things that need attending to in order to make sure you’re not spending money come springtime when you shouldn’t need to. 

Clean the gutters

This is the time to clear leaves and other debris from rain gutters. Check for proper drainage, clear out any blockages with a small garden trowel, and rinse with a hose.

Dry it out

Water that gathers in hoses, fountains, drip irrigation systems, and other water features can freeze in the winter. Drain them and store in a dry place so you’re not surprised come springtime.

Protect your deck

Giving the deck a good power wash can prevent the growth of mold and mildew. Once the deck is clean and dry, add a weatherproofing stain to protect the wood from moisture damage over the winter.
