Tips for Easy Fall Cleanup
Fall is one of the most beautiful seasons, the leaves are changing colors, there’s a crispness in the air that you can’t get any other time of year, and it signifies an end to summertime fun. It also means it’s time for fall cleanup! So as you’re raking up those leaves and cleaning out your gutters, make sure these five tips are on your list:
1) Make a checklist for yourself
This is a great way to make sure you cover everything and don’t miss anything important. And if the list gets too long, just break it up into chunks so that you can tackle one thing at a time! That way your work will feel less overwhelming. And try not to skip things – they might look small but they can make a big impact on the total look of your lawn.
2) Be realistic about what you want to accomplish
There’s nothing worse than getting to the end of a long cleaning session and realizing that you still have more work to do. So just take it slow and try not to bite off more than you can chew! It may sound like an obvious tip, but we’re talking about fall cleanup after all – so there’s bound to be unexpected tasks that pop up!
3) Start with the easy stuff first
Start with the easy stuff makes it easier to get started. We recommend you start with things like raking leaves, getting rid of weeds and pulling out any dead plants or flowers. By the time you get to your more difficult tasks (like cleaning gutters) you can be sure they are easier for you to do.
4) Take care of things now before they pile up
It’s nice to have some extra time on your hands during the fall, but don’t let it go to waste! Use this free time for things like cleaning gutters or washing windows. Because if you leave these tasks until springtime when there are more leaves on the trees and snow in the forecast, they will be a lot
5) Get some help if needed
There’s no shame in asking for help, especially if you’ve been putting off fall cleanup. If it’s a big job and you have the time to plan ahead instead of rushing around at the last minute before the snow falls, ask your family or friends for help with things like cleaning gutters or removing weeds from flower beds. You also might want to hire professional help. If this is the case, give us a call at 781-848-800 or contact us here for more information.
