There are plenty of tasks you’ll need to complete in order to keep your yard looking its best over the years, including:
• Trim large trees. This maintains tree health and prevents wayward branches from scratching against your house or roof, potentially causing damage.
• Clean your gutters. Debris-laden gutters can lead to water pooling that damages your eaves and roof over time. Clean them out at least once a year, though you may need to do so more often in heavily wooded areas.
• Keep plants and clutter away from your house. Distance between landscaping and the home prevents pests and exterior damage.
