Fall in New England is Glorious, but...

Fall in New England is Glorious, but...

We've had a wonderful Fall so far. Summer eased gently into warm Fall daysGorgeous New England Foliage and gradually have became cooler at night. Great sleeping weather if you're under a down comforter or a few blankets!

The vibrant gold, orange, yellow and red leaves had all of us admiring the breathtaking beauty of nature. Tourists come from all over for "leaf peeping" tours to enjoy the palette of colors.

pumpkins growing in Sharon MAThere are lots of farms and farmstands where families can pick up a pumpkin, gourds and Indian corn to display on front porches. 

Now, the weather is changing again. In the past week, the rainy season started. We need Indian Corn with colorful kernelsthe  rain for next spring's crops and for our reservoirs and well water. Plus, there's nothing like the sound of rain to make you want to settle in under a warm blanket and read or nap!

Still, for homeowners, the rain reminds us that this is no time to slack off from taking care of our homes! Backyards are filled with dead leaves. Whether your home is for sale or not, dead leaves look messy, and can also kill your grass if the rain and sun can't get through.

If you don't use a landscape service, you can use your lawnmower to run over the leaves and bag the chopped up leaves. Don't leave the mulched leaves on the grass or it will also choke the life out of your grass. It does make good mulch for your gardens, though! 

Wet leaves can also be dangerous on your outside stairs. Clear stairs and decks so no one slips and falls. 

Clear the leaves from your gutters to drain water away from your houseCheck your gutters to make sure they are not clogged with leaves and that they can drain into your downspouts. Make sure downspouts have extensions on them to take the rainwater away from your house's foundation.

If you're thinking about listing your home for sale, call or text me at 781-883-3764 to find out how I would price and market your home. I have information that will help you get your home ready inside and out!

Enjoy the days when the sun is shining and the sky is a brilliant blue! Fall in New England is glorious!
