With the chance of severe wind and rain on Sunday from Hurricane Irene, we wanted to offer a few tips to protect the investment you’ve made in your outdoor space:
- Bring in or secure any outdoor items that might be damaged or become projectiles in high winds.
- Move containerized plants and window boxes to a protected spot so they won’t be overturned.
- Prune branches away from windows, and have any dead branches removed from overhanging trees.
- Make sure sump pumps are working and soil is sloping away from the house to minimize basement flooding.
Our crews have offered to make themselves available to help customers prepare for the hurricane, so feel free to call our office if you need assistance.
