Real Estate Tips: Preparing Your Yard for Winter

Autumn-Leaves-Blowing 2015 The weather is turning colder and the days are getting shorter which means winter is on the way. So you can pack up those gardening tools until next spring, right?…Wrong! You can save yourself some time in the yard next spring if you do a few maintenance tips now.

1) Stay on top of the falling leaves. Leaves can smother your grass and to keep your lawn looking nice either rake leaves regularly or mow. If you decide to mow, make sure you use a bag to collect the clippings & shredded leaves which you can use for your garden or landscape beds.

2) Prune rose canes back to knee height, mound the base with fresh compost (about 12 inches) and cover the rosebush with shredded leaves. This will help protect the bush & roots during the colder months.

3) Mulch landscaping beds with chopped leaves or pine needles. Again, this is extra protection and helps reduce the effects of extreme temperature changes.

4) Plant spring bulbs now and your yard will come alive next spring. Examples of spring bulbs to plant are tulips, daffodils, crocus, and hyacinth to name a few.

Real Estate Tips: Preparing You & Your Home for School

owl-calendar
August is usually the month for going back-to-school and you and your home can suddenly spin out of control. Below is a list of some hopeful tips to help you stay organized during this crazy time. 

1) Establish a routine. Start homework as soon as the kids get home from school. This is a great way to cut down the stress before bedtime. Also, Preparing food for lunches, laying out clothes, signing all homework, etc… can be done the night before and will save you time in the mornings.  

2) Get a calendar. Having a calendar on a wall near the kitchen can help you keep track of daily, weekly or monthly activities at a glance. You should include family event, test dates & other important information. Try adding a inspirational quote to the top every month. 

3) Make a designated area for school backpacks. A mudroom is an excellent place to keep backpacks. This way, they are out of sight to your guest yet your family knows exactly where to look for them the next day.   

4) Prep lunches. Its a good idea to have designated areas for school lunches in the refrigerator and pantry. This way you can grab the items you need to make a quick lunch. 
    Refrigerator: Make designated area for juice boxes (school drinks) in the door.

    Pantry: Designate a shelf or drawer for school lunches & store single serve                        snack items in different baskets or containers.
