Oct 20, 2022 | Blog, Tips and How Tos

Fall is great time to get your home and property in shape for cool winter weather! But where do you begin? You start by working outside-in. Starting outside takes priority because time is of the essence when you’re in a race against the elements! Are you ready to get started, but don’t know where to begin? No problem — we put together an outdoor fall cleaning checklist for YOU! Keep reading to learn how you can get your property in tip-top shape!

Outdoor Fall Cleaning Checklist


  1. Plan Ahead For A Cleaning Day — The best way to start cleaning up your property is by making a plan. Planning in advance to set aside a day or a weekend to clean up your property will make it much more manageable for you and your family. Plus, you won’t have any scheduling conflicts if you already book your day in advance!
  2. Clean Or Replace Your Gutters — Gutters are essential for draining thousands of gallons of water from your roof each year. With all the hard work they do to keep your house from turning into a water park — they could use a little TLC. Be sure to unclog your gutters of any leaves or debris that has built up over the past year. If you notice your gutters are worn down and beyond repair, make an effort to get them replace before weather gets too cold!
  3. Store Outdoor Furniture – You spent your hard earned money on all your outdoor furniture and equipment – why let it become worn down by the elements? Move your furniture inside or into a shed/storage for the frigid season to protect it and improve its longevity. If you don’t have anywhere to store it, consider purchasing waterproof outdoor furniture covers to protect it from the harsh winter conditions!
  4. Fertilize Your Lawn — The best way to ensure a perfect summer lawn is by preparing and maintaining it year round. In order to due this, you need to prep your lawn for the harsh winter conditions. The roots of your grass are still active during the winter, so you need to apply fertilizer to help protect it from the harsh winter conditions.
  5. Repave Your Driveway — While cracks in your driveway may not be that big of a deal during warmer weather, the winter is another story. When water gets into cracks it freezes, expands, and can make the crack even bigger! Enough small cracks can turn into big cracks, and eventually the concrete can crumble into giant potholes — and no one wants that! Be sure to fill cracks in your driveway, or repave it entirely to properly seal it before the harsh winter weather arrives.
  6. Get Rid Of Yard Waste And Debris — Whether it be leaves, tree branches, or left over materials from your summer construction project — you need to get rid of it before they become covered in snow. Grab a rake and trash bags and start piling up your yard waste and putting them into your trash bags. If you have large materials or construction debris, you may need to load it up in your car and take it to a facility to properly dispose of it.
