Drain gasoline on idle power tools for the winter by running the engine until fuel in the carburetor is used up.
Drain and store garden hoses and watering equipment in a readily accessible location. The lawn and plants may need water during a prolonged dry spell.
Protect your lawn from excessive winter damage by providing irrigation during dry periods. This would include a deep watering once or twice a month, if we do not receive any significant rainfalls.
Winter berrying plants, such as hollies, may be pruned now while they can be enjoyed as cut material inside the house.
