Fall is upon us. Curb appeal is still important; rake up fallen leaves and other fall debris in your yard. Don’t forget to keep sidewalks, driveway and walkways clean as well. Trim and prune trees and shrubs, especially away from the house, this will also let more sunlight into the house. Replace spent summer flowers with colorful fall plants such as marigolds, kale and pansies.
