1. Lawn Maintenance

It’s amazing how you can transform the look of your home with a few simple landscaping chores like mowing, weeding, mulching and trimming. Your lawn is one of the first impressions that the guests will notice. With proper care, your lawn will look and feel great for all the barefoot holiday traffic.

 

Mowing tip: set a mowing schedule so you never remove more than one-third of the total leaf surface of a single blade of grass.

 

2. Enhance Landscape

By adding fresh greenery and colorful flowers, you can enhance the curb appeal of your home. In addition, by planting marigolds, lavender, and basil, you can naturally drive away unwanted mosquitoes.

It’s safe to say that most guests won’t be leaving the party until dark, after the much-anticipated fireworks show. If you have any obstacles in your yard, lighting will be key for everyone’s safety on their way out. Kill two birds with one stone by creating outdoor mood lighting with tiki torches filled with bug-busting citronella oil.

4. Gutters

Poorly functioning gutters can cause water damage to your roof, siding, windows, landscape, and foundation. Additionally, standing water in your gutters attracts unwanted pests and can become a health hazard.
