If you own Central Vermont real estate, fall is a great time of year for projects, and you can never start too soon! The lovely warm days and colorful landscaped of the autumn season can have many inhabitants of Central Vermont so relaxed that they may forget what is coming around the corner. Cooler days, freezing temperatures, and even the first snow flurries can catch even the most prepared off guard, which is what makes now the ideal time to prepare your home for winter and get seasonal outdoor projects underway.
Some of the most important tasks to take care of involve putting your Central Vermont property to bed for the winter. Mow your lawn, prune your shrubs and trees, and cut back summer’s gardens. The more prepared your landscape is for winter the easier your spring gardening will be. This is also an ideal time to plant bulbs for the spring. Whether you favor daffodils or tulips, getting bulbs in the ground now will make your Central Vermont property vibrant come May.
Another part of your Central Vermont home to pay attention to is your gutter system. Take time to clear leaves and debris from your gutters and make sure your heat tape is operational. Taking care of your gutters now can prevent unwanted ice dams and winter leakage in the middle of January.
One last, important step is blowing out your irrigation system and disconnecting your hoses. A burst pipe can occur in freezing temperatures even if you haven’t turned a hose on in months.
Taking care of your Central Vermont real estate and preparing your home for winter is an important part of home ownership. If you are unable to perform necessary tasks give us a call. We can recommend landscapers that can help take care of all your property’s needs.
