Whether you are looking to put your home on the market or just keep it in tip top shape, here are 5 projects to get ready for the season: 1. Clean out the gutters - taking care of removing leaves and debris from the gutters can prevent big problems down the road. While your up there on the ladder, visually inspect your roof for damaged shingles, flashing and vents. 2. Plant bulbs - now that the soil has cooled down, now is the time to plant bulbs for beautiful spring flowers. Be sure to choose a spot that gets full sun during the day. 3. Chimney time - love a crackling fire during the winter? Fall is the time to have the chimney swept and inspected to reduce potential fires in the flue. 4. Fill in the cracks - while it is still warm and sunny, have repairs you may wish to make to the asphalt or concrete on your driveway and walkway made. 5. Got compost? - If it's on your bucket list to be more green, then here is your chance! Make (or purchase) some composting bins and start filling them with leaves. They will work their magic through the fall and winter and be ready to make your garden gorgeous for the spring.
