Fall Project Reminder: Clean those gutters!
Don't forget to get up on a ladder and clean out your rain gutters. Now is a great time to get rid of the leaves and gravel that build up so that your rainwater collection remains clean. You might want to install a simple filter before your downspout to prevent leaves from going into the barrel. An old screen or some wire mesh will work. A clogged downspout into a rainwater barrel is no fun to clean out in the middle of the fall rains.
