Spring Cleaning Your Exterior Living Areas – Part III

north texas outdoor constructionWe’ve gone over some ways to spruce up and spring clean the outside of your home in our first two installments of this series of Spring cleaning your exterior living area. De-weeding your backyard, trimming and thinning out plants and removing seedlings can save you countless hours (and dollars) in the future – so it pays to knock it out now.

Don’t forget other backyard care elements that need just as much attention.

Gutters can become clogged with leaves and twigs over the course of the fall and winter and that presents a real problem. Clogged gutters can lead to a flooded yard and will drown out any growth by your grass.

Don’t know where to start on your gutters? Ask your local home department store if they have any solutions that might be more appropriate for you. Sometimes, it’s suggested that older individuals use vacuum technology that can be found in rentable equipment to vacuum out their gutters while their feet are planted safely on the ground.

Don’t let clogged gutters set your lawn back a full season – grab a ladder and give your gutters a glance.

After working on those gutters, don’t forget to stop by your backyard shed and make sure that all tools and equipment is in working condition. Have machine tools serviced before you’ll need them so that your safety isn’t at risk.
