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.
