Landscaping Tips

When preparing for spring, take some time to give your landscaping a good look over. What plants, trees and shrubs should stay? Which should you pull and fill the soil with something new? Next, take some time to prune your plants and trees. This will help them grow and flourish when the spring arrives. When pruning, the Independent Mail explains in the article Reasons for Pruning Vary, But Almost Every Plant Benefits From It, that it can help with the overall size of the plant or tree and allow it to bloom or generate new growth. They add that is helps light reach the center. Last, it is time to plan for mulching. Take some time to find the best mulch for your yard and your plans to accomplish the task.

Seasonal Roof Checklist

A new season is a new beginning. With new beginnings, it is the optimal time to check the outdoor structure of your home and roof to make sure everything is intact. During your inspection, you can review the overall quality to see what items you need to fix or hire someone to help with. When walking around your house, you will want to look at the siding and overall structure for cracks and abnormalities. Next, look at the gutters and downspouts. When there are cracks, leaks, clogs or damage done to these, it can lead to a great deal of issues. Why? They direct water off your roof and away from the foundation of your home. If water pools around the foundation, it can lead to serious issues. Last, inspect the roof. You will want to look for cracked or missing shingles, damage to the flashing (placed at the corners on a roof, such as chimneys), and then for leaking inside the attic or highest level that may be a sign of damage to a roof.

Maintenance Tips and When to Hire a Professional

When you have clogged gutters, a couple missing shingles or debris on your roof, these are all minor issues you can have taken care of quickly and simply without major costs. It is best to make sure you have a professional examine any space which is in need of maintenance to make sure a larget issue does not exist. Once a problem gets to be too large, it can compound everything - including your overall costs. This is especially crucial if your home is 20 years or older as that is typically when you need to consider roof replacement.
