Four Fall Cleanup Tips for your Outdoor Living Space



It’s October, and you know what that means! Fall is officially here! With the weather getting cooler and the leaves falling to the ground, it’s the perfect time to start cleaning up and changing outdoor living space to be more usable during this cooler season. It’s essential to stay on top of your cleaning so that it doesn’t overwhelm you. Four Seasons helps homeowners extend their time outdoors with these four fall cleanup tips for preparing your outdoor living space. 

Cleaning Your Backyard

Leaves are a great way to add extra nutrients to a homeowner’s lawn and garden. It is a natural mulch that can be used to cover the dirt. Rent a leaf mulcher to finely chop the leaves to use over the lawn or spread them around plants in your outdoor living space. A spread of mulched leaves over a perennial bed provides insulation and improves soil quality as it decomposes. Leaves are also great for compost. Mixing leaves with other lawn matter can produce nitrogen-rich organic matter that is great for vegetable gardens, trees, and shrubs. Applying fertilizer just before the winter season allows your turf grasses to grow strong and resilient against the chances of browning or dying off during colder weather.

 

Store and Protect 

You will no longer need those wicker furniture pieces, and it’s time to put away the umbrella. Use outdoor storage like a shed or outdoor weather-resistant furniture that won’t be damaged by the rain and snow. Protect your deck from mold and mildew by giving it one last power wash. Add waterproof stain to protect the wood from moisture damage over the winter. Try our Dryshield Decking System

 

Cleaning Your Patio Rooms, Sunrooms, and Life Rooms

Indoor rooms accumulate a lot of dirt. Remove all furniture and decor before washing the windows. For the outside glass windows and doors, rinse off as much dirt as you can with a regular garden hose, then try a glass cleaner. Use a soft cloth to remove dirt from the hard floors or vacuum the carpet. If you have cushions on your furniture, give them a good wash and thoroughly dry them before returning everything to the room. Use wet wipes to clean the small areas. Microfibre cloths can be used to clean gently clean the TV screen and all other electronics.

 

Remodeling and Adding Seasonal Decor

Clear the Clutter! Throw out or store spring/ summer decor. Add some new warm colors to your outside living space for the fall/ winter season. Changing up the furniture, pillows, lighting, decor, curtains, and even adding little accents like candles and blankets can change the whole feel of the space.


This is the perfect time to enjoy the convenience of your outside living space. So when the time comes to improve, you want a name you can trust.

Turning your Sunroom into a Greenhouse

Four Season’s sunrooms offer endless opportunities to design and customize. And the perfect touch could be to add an interior garden to your sunroom. Sheltered from the elements and situated in the sunlight, sunrooms are ideal for growing plants.  You may be asking, “ What kind of plants can I grow in my sunroom? ” Plants that need lots of sunlight are ideal, as your sunroom feeds off of direct rays all day. Conveniently, plants that thrive in an indoor garden are plants that would not usually do as well outside due to the harshness of the weather. This way, if you are interested in gardening, you can grow a wide variety of plants inside and outside your sunroom.

Covid-19 Changes Spending Habits

We all have seen the detrimental effects the COVID-19 pandemic has had on our communities. The loss of jobs, inability to stock up on basic necessities, and lack of person-to-person contact are just a few of the things we went months without. As our society is finally returning to “normal” due to the introduction of vaccines, we are all opening up our doors and spending more time with those we love. Before we discuss the bright future ahead, let's take a moment to reflect on the past. During the heart of the pandemic, many industries were struggling. A variety of businesses had to shut their doors due to a lack of customers and need for their products. Contrarily, other industries boomed due to a want for their goods and services.
