It will soon be time for strings of colorful lights and colder temperatures. Fall is here! Learn how to prepare your backyard for Winter this year.
🏊♀️ Swimming Pool & Hot Tub Care
Swimming pools and hot tubs are great to have during the summer, but you don’t suddenly get to stop caring for them when autumn arrives. You want to keep falling leaves out of your pool and continue to periodically clean it and check the pH level of the water.
The Richmond area sees its fair share of cold weather during the winter, so it’s best to drain your pool until warmer weather comes back around.
🏞️ Outdoor Furniture Care
There will likely be plenty of pleasant fall days and nights when you want to lounge on outdoor furniture and enjoy the weather. However, it’s less pleasant to spend time outdoors when the air turns icy and snow adds an unwelcome extra blanket.
If you are able to leave your furniture outside, make sure to clean it often to keep dirt and leaves away. Follow instructions for cleaning according to the type of material your furniture is made of. It’s also a good idea to take cushions indoors if your area experiences a lot of precipitation during the cooler seasons.
☃️ Prepare Winter Decor
Few things are as miserable as hanging Christmas lights in freezing weather. Autumn is the perfect time to start prepping your winter decor before the snow is on the ground and you’re starting to weigh the pros and cons of not decorating this year.
