5 Important Tasks To Get Your Backyard Winter Ready
1. Put away the water hose
Living in a 4 season country, our water hose is one of the items that we have to put away during the winter. Putting it away during the harsh winter days will ensure that the hose will last longer.
2. Put away the yard furniture
We don’t have a lot of yard furniture but the ones we do have, we put them away in the shed. If you don’t have a shed, you can also buy covers for the furniture. You can find covers of different sizes that are waterproof.
3. Cover the pool
Goodbye pool! The pool was one of the first things that we put away this year. Demo and his uncle removed the stairs and put the plastic pool cover over the pool. They bought our pool cover at Home Hardware last year, and it held on quite well last winter.
4. Prep your garden
Our garden is by far one of my favorite part of being a homeowner. In the previous four years, we’ve seen it go through a lot of changes. To get our backyard winter ready, Demo and his uncle pulled the dead plants out of the raised garden beds. A few weeks ago we also moved all of our plants inside.
5. Remove the leaves and fallen branches
Colorful leaves are by far the best part about fall! We always do this task as a family. The kids love helping Papa rake the leaves. We keep the leaves in bags and Demo uses them in the raised garden beds in the spring.
Now that all the winter prep tasks are done, we jump in the leaves one last time!
