Autumn is the perfect time to add extra decorations to your homes, such as pumpkins, baskets, and wreaths! Replace your doormat with a fun and festive one with warm, welcoming colors, and hang a wreath with the many colorful leaves of fall. You may also add a new welcome sign that combines fun autumn colors and the holiday spirit! These little changes will significantly improve your home’s curbside appeal!

Pressure Wash Your Driveway & Sidewalks

Marks from your tires, foot traffic, grass clippings, and dead leaves can leave your concrete looking run down. This will bring down the appeal of your home, but no need to worry! A good power washing will clean off your concrete and leave it looking like new! It is easy to rent a power washing unit, or you may buy one and always have it on hand for future tasks. With a clean sidewalk and driveway, the appeal of your home will improve drastically and draw eyes towards your beautiful and tidy home!

Bag Your Leaves

It is always fun to jump into a pile of leaves once they have fallen to the ground; however, once the tree is bare, you should rake them up and bag them. At A-Unlimited Tree Service, we will professionally prune and trim your trees but leave no waste behind. Getting your tree trimmed can also be a great way to keep your yard looking fresh. Leaves will break down very quickly, especially if it rains. Leaf piles will make your yard look unkempt and messy. If you do happen to leave that pile of leaves for too long, it can smother your yard and may cause yard diseases due to reduced air circulation and no sunlight. You can take your leaves to a recycling center nearby and get them turned into compost, which can be used as a natural fertilizer and enhance your soil for your plant and vegetable gardens!

Clean Out Your Flower Bed

Clear the weeds and debris from your landscape to keep your home from looking neglected and run down. When your annuals fade, remove them, throw them away, and pull out any other plants that do not belong. If you were to leave weeds and old flowers, they may drop seeds and resprout, causing you to have a more extensive cleanup in the spring. A leaf blower will greatly help eliminate dead leaves and debris in the corners of your flowerbeds and gardens.
