We’re still in the heat of summer, but just like back-to-school came in the blink of an eye, autumn will be here before you know it. Here are the home maintenance chores you can Takl right now to jumpstart your autumn.

Plant for Fall/Winter

If you want to enjoy some fresh veggies this fall or winter, now is the time to prepare. Here’s are some crops you can have planted and when:

· 10–12 weeks before first frost — Plant carrots to harvest by autumn.

· 8 weeks before the first frost — Plant lettuce and turnips. You can also plant kale from seed or seedling.

· 6 weeks before the first frost — Plant broccoli, cabbage, cauliflower, Napa cabbage, and Brussel sprouts from seedlings.

A Provider on Takl can assist you with lawn and garden chores such as picking your late summer harvest, clearing the garden for new plantings, and planting those fall/winter crops.

Organize an Easier School Year

This Takl user had hooks added to their mudroom. Now everyone knows where the school bags go.

The school year means more than catching the bus each morning. For many families, school includes sports, clubs, bake sales, PTA meetings, and a very full schedule. Make your school year easier by cutting down on clutter with these back-to-school organization tips.

Clean and Protect Gutters

These gutters are looking good after a Provider cleaned them out.

If your gutters are already clogged, the fall leaves to come can worsen water-related issues. Have the gutters cleared out ahead of autumn rain. When your gutters are clean, prevent future debris from creating clogs by having gutter guards installed. A Provider can assist with both cleaning and repairing your gutters. Have leaf shields installed using Build Your Own Job.

Install a Smart Thermostat

A smart thermostat can help you save money on cooling costs now when the temperatures are still warm, and then help you save in winter by monitoring heating throughout the house. Book your smart home chore on Takl at the time you choose.

Put Away Summer Decor

Have the garage organized like this Takl user did. Now there’s plenty of room for storage!
