Prepare Your Home For Winter

Lawn Care: To ensure a healthy lawn in the spring, take a bit of time this fall to apply a quality fertilizer and weed killer. Thatch and re-seed or lay sod as needed. Outdoor Faucets: Once all the yard work is completed, remove, drain, and store hoses for winter. If you have an inside valve for each outdoor faucet, turn these off and open the outside faucet slightly to drain any water left in the pipes. Attach insulated covers over outside faucets. Blow out sprinkler systems.
