5 Tips to Improve Your Home's Exterior for Thanksgiving

Thanksgiving is here and if you will be hosting the celebrations this year, you'll want to spruce up the outside of your home first. It's natural that you spend time cleaning the inside of our home for guests, but the outside is the first thing people will see and notice as they pull into your driveway. Take a few minutes to look at your home with new eyes, and you'll notice that these things will need to be done, not just for looks, but also for the safety of your guests.

Sweep Your Sidewalks

Keeping your sidewalks clean is a must. If there are any dips, cracks or holes in your sidewalk, piles of leaves and sticks that haven't been swept off will hide these - making it dangerous for guests. If you already have snow in your area, you'll want to make sure that your sidewalk has been properly cleaned and salted to prevent anyone from falling.

Rake and Remove Your Leaves

The leaves look fun and seasonal when they first fall, but after a few weeks of wind, rain and sun - they start to make your yard look unkempt. The sooner you have the leaves raked and removed the better. If you don't have time to do this, don't forget to call the best lawn maintenance team at the Lake of the Ozarks! We can take care of leaf removal, and cleaning off your hardscapes.

Clean Your Gutters

After the leaves have fallen, one of the most important tasks is to remove the leaves out of your gutters. The appearance can be haphazard, and it can be a hazard for your guests. If it's raining and your gutters are full, the rain water will have nowhere to go except down onto your guests.

Wash Your Windows

This chore is easier in the Spring, but after Summer and Fall you can find spider webs, leaves, and dirt. A clean set of windows can make the entirety of your home look clean and organized from the outside - in!

Add Some D├ęcor

Nothing can spruce up your home more than adding a little Thanksgiving cheer! Whether you decide to go the extra mile and get your Christmas lights up, or you just add a pretty wreath to your door - this decision can make a beautiful impact.
