Fall is a great time to examine the exterior of your Phoenix home in order to prepare it for Winter weather. A great first place to start is with your landscaping. Winter means the onset of most plants' dormant phase, almost like hibernating for the botanical world, and Fall is a great time to cut back plants, trim trees and shrubs, and get everything ready for new growth in the Spring. Not only will this neaten up the appearance of your landscaping but it is also an essential element of boosting healthy growth in the future.
Fall is also a great time to put away the yard tools. Do not forget about your garden hoses, as many areas of the Country experience freezing temperatures in Winter months, which can burst pipes if any water has been left in your hose or the exterior water lines. Likewise it is a great idea to schedule your sprinkler lines to be blown out.
Peruse the exterior of your home and tighten up what items appear to need repair and make a list for what you might want to do come Spring, perhaps a new paint job, deck expansion, plant a new tree, or fence the yard. The change of seasons can often bring a desire to clean and organize and after looking outside don't forget to look inside your Phoenix AZ home. Preparing for a Winter climate ahead of time can help you avoid getting caught off guard, as well as save you from some avoidable expenses.
Of course Arizona winters are much, much milder than the rest of the country, but the slight season change is still a good time marker to check your Phoenix home for repairs.
