With summer coming to a close (officially fall should arrive September 23) – we have some work to do getting our homes & properties ready.
With cooler temps, it will be easier to clear all dry vegetation, mulch, and trash from around your home exterior. Remove all organic debris, fallen leaves, encroaching vines, downed branches, firewood, and other combustible or flammable materials within this area.
Not only will this help create a defensible space but will help prevent spaces for critters, bugs and moisture.
