The kids have been back in school for awhile, the leaves are turning and a chill is in the air. If you’re like most homeowners, fall also means an opportunity to spruce up your yard and cut down on the work you’ll need to do when the weather turns warm again. A little bit of work in the fall will really pay off with spring rounds around. 

  • RAKE THOSE LEAVES - Once the snow flies, an unraked layer of leaves can get matted down over the turf and smother it all winter long. Raking or using a mulching mover in the fall helps avoid dead patches in the spring. But in the garden, don’t worry about getting every last leaf as they help insulate plants, and as they decompose, they provide valuable nutrients. 
  • MOW A FINAL TIME - Trim turf down to 11/4” for the last cut of the season. Disease has a harder time with shorter grass, and fallen leaves blow across the lawn because they have nothing to latch on to. Don’t go too low though. 
  • FEED THE GRASS - Fertilizing in the fall is like a day at the spa for your lawn. Using a slow-release fertilizer allow the grass to soak up nutrients and, just as important, spend the cool days and nights of autumn recovering from summer heat and stress. And building a healthy rejuvenated lawn is one of the best ways to protect against heat, cold, drought, insects and other stresses. 
  • AERATE THE LAWN - If rainfall pools on the grass, it’s time to aerate compressed soil so water and nutrients can reach the roots. A garden fork can do the job on a small yard, or a power aerator for larger areas.
  • WEED ALL ABOUT IT - Weeding in the fall is probably the most valuable thing you can do to prepare for spring, and it’s one many people overlook. 
  • CLEAN OUT YOUR GARDEN - Fruits and vegetables left in the garden can rot all winter long, and provide a comfy home for insect eggs so be sure to clear them out. Now is the time to get rid of diseased plants too, but keep them out of the compost pile so the problems do not spread. 
  • TRIM DEAD LIMBS - Lifeless branches can succumb to winter snow and winds, endangering you and your home. You can take care of the small trees by cutting cracked, loose and diseased limbs close to (but not flush) the trunk. Leave the wounds exposed to heal. Call in the pros for bigger jobs. 
  • GIVE YOUR TOOLS A TUNE-UP - Wipe down your tools and remove any dirt and debris on your tools before putting them away for the winter. You can even apply a light layer of oil to keep them all from rusting.

We are very fortunate to live and work in the most beautiful city in the upper Fraser Valley. Chilliwack is surrounded by beautiful mountains, farmland, lakes, rivers and streams. It offers plenty of out activities such as hiking the many trails around our rivers and lakes or into our local Cascade Mountains. World class fishing, golfing, tennis,lawn bowling ATV and horseback riding and much, much more. Lots of programs and activities to keep the children busy: baseball, hockey, swimming, soccer, football as well as plenty of parks and recreation facilities. As well we have an excellent school system, plenty of churches to become involved in and a variety of social groups. We enjoy a very relaxed lifestyle here in Chilliwack. Far from the hustle and bustle of the big city, just 90 minutes from Vancouver!

 

Chilliwack has a great smaller city vibe but still plenty to do and lots of job opportunities. 

 

Chilliwack is also the gateway to the Southern Interior of our province. You can be in Kamloops in 2 hours, Kelowna in 2 ½ hours and the Shuswap in 3.

Our market is steaming along continuing to outpace residential sales from last year. Sales were up 39% for March over the same month in 2014 and listings are still down with 2.5% fewer than a year ago. The balance of sales to listings continues to edge more to a Seller’s Market. My observations show significant variation by neighbourhood, property type and price range with some neighbourhoods flying fast and furious while others seem to be a little overlooked. Whether buying or selling, for listing and sales information in addition to market interpretation specific to your area, please call me at 604-819-0120.
