Spending Every Night and Weekend on Yard Work Isn't Easy
With so many entertainment choices to keep you busy, it's difficult to find the energy to focus on yard work. Though it demands a lot of your time and attention, you care about your home. After all, it's the center of your family life, and you understandably want to keep it looking nice.
Keep Your Lawn Green All Year with These Tips and Tricks
With the beautiful weather we have in Los Angeles all year long, we get extra landscaping challenges. If you want your lawn to look top-shelf, you may want to consider rotating your lawn seed mix, using cool-season grass seeds like Ryegrass, Bluegrass and Fescue during the fall and winter. Rotate to warm-season grass seeds like Buffalo or Bermuda grass in the hot summer months to ensure your yard looks green even when the temperatures begin to climb.
Using warm-weather grass seeds will guarantee that your lawn is more environmentally sensitive, which we all know is an essential factor here in LA. Consider incorporating some xeriscaping into your garden, so that your yard needs less water to thrive and continue to look lush and beautiful. We recognize that keeping your home and lawns looking their finest requires a serious commitment of time, energy and hard work. After all, there's more to keeping your grounds looking nice than merely regular lawn mowing. There's gutter cleaning, and leaf removal that required are every fall. You want to be sure that your gutter cleaning is completed before the rainy season of winter starts.
Yard Work Requires Strength and Climbing Ladders
We realize that many people prefer not to perform the arduous yard care tasks that require climbing a ladder and wielding heavy equipment. Gutter cleaning is crucially important for many reasons. Having a gutter filled with moldy, slick leaves both looks bad and creates a hazard for your home. If your house gutters remain clogged, it can lead to much more severe problems, like improper water drainage. You want to clean your home gutters twice a year, at a minimum.
Gutter Cleaning Should be Done Twice a Year in Spring and Fall
Gutter cleaning twice a year will ensure that your house looks lovely. More importantly, you protect your real estate investment. Clearing the gutters ensures that your home's roof and foundation are protected from water damage. When gutters remain filled with leaves and debris, it creates the perfect environment for mold and pests to take hold.
How to Clean Your Home's Gutters Yourself
To clean the gutters, you want to use some sturdy garden gloves and a ladder. Be sure to scoop out all the dead leaves and debris. It's best to have a plastic lawn bag to catch all of the debris, as it creates two tasks for you to complete if you throw the leaves onto your lawn. After you finish clearing a section of gutter, you want to use a garden hose to run water through the gutters. Check and see that the water can flow through the channel freely, and be sure to check your home's downspouts as well.
Don't Overlook Downspouts
It may prove necessary to disconnect your house's downspouts to clear them fully. After the downspouts are clear, reattach them and check your work. Run water through the gutters and downspouts, making sure that your water is running several feet away from your house and directed away from your home's foundation.
Patch Water Leaks with Gutter Caulking Compound
The last step to gutter cleaning correctly is to check your gutter's surfaces and seams. If there are any leaks, you want to use gutter caulk or silicone to seal the leaks. You can purchase caulk that is made explicitly for house gutters at your local hardware store or lawn and garden center.
Use a generous amount of caulk and make a heavy bead of caulking compound on the leak. Be advised that it takes up to a full 24 hours for the caulk to cure completely, so it's prudent for you to apply it one day and test whether it's watertight the next day. If there continue to be any water leaks, apply a second coat of gutter caulk.
