Overseeding & Aerating

Overseeding in early September is important to a healthy lawn. Summers in Omaha can wreak havoc on grass. A healthy lawn next year starts today.

Furance Maintenance

Before temperatures start to plummet, have your furnace serviced. As with other winter jobs, the sooner you call contractors, the more likely you’ll find them available and affordable.

Plant a Tree or Some Shrubs

In Nebraska, fall is the BEST time to plant trees and shrubs. Visit the Nebraska Forest Service website or a local extension office for tree recommendations.

Replace Smoke Detectors

Smoke detectors should be replaced every 10 years because the sensors wear out. When was the last time you replaced your smoke detectors?

Don't Rake ALL Your Leaves

Leaves are a natural mulch and fertilizer. Studies have even shown that leaf mulch reduces the appearance of dandelions by up to 84 percent the following season.

Organize the Garage

Stop putting it off! About 1 in 4 Americans can’t fit their car in their garage because it’s too cluttered. Consider donating un-used items a local charity.
