Get Your Kitchen Ready for the Holidays


Now is a good time to consider taking care of some tasks around the kitchen to ensure that you are ready for the holiday season.  This will make your kitchen organized and prepared for holiday party planning and meal prep.  Follow these steps:

  • Give your kitchen a deep clean – clean the interior and exterior of cabinetry organizing the contents of the cabinets as needed, clean countertops and appliances including the oven and dishwasher, and launder and press table linens and cloth napkins. Also dispose of expired items in the refrigerator and wipe down drawers and shelves.
  • Declutter the pantry – take an inventory of the items in your pantry. Remove pantry items, wipe down the shelves, dispose of out-of-date and seldom used items and organize spices in alphabetical order. Check on commonly used holiday spices (nutmeg, sage, rosemary, etc.) and replenish as needed.
  • Sharpen knives – consider having your knives professionally sharpened so they are ready for additional cooking during the holiday season.
  • Wash dishes, pots and pans that are only used during the holidays – these seldom used items tend to gather dust when sitting idle.
  • Make sure you have an ample supply of kitchen basics like salt, pepper, trash bags, dishwashing detergent, aluminum foil and plastic wrap, paper towels, and napkins.
  • Check the smoke detector – test your smoke detector to make sure it operates and install a fresh battery.

Prepare Your Lawn and Garden For Winter


Now is a great time to consider tackling some tasks that will get your lawn and garden ready for winter, setting you up for success next summer.

Lawn: This fall, while your grass is still green be sure to have your lawn aerated and fertilized to ensure vigorous growth next spring. Pull/remove any visible weeds throughout your lawn to save yourself time next spring.

Vegetable Garden: Pull up plants that are no longer growing and producing. Assuming that the plants are not diseased, work the plants back into the soil so that they compost over the winter months. Fallen leaves and dead annual flowers may also be tilled into the garden to add additional organic matter.

Trees/Shrubs: Though trees and shrubs may be going dormant for the year, they may still require supplemental hose watering over the coming months if precipitation isn’t adequate. Water may be needed every 3 to 4 weeks, and it’s best to water when temperatures are above freezing and the ground is not frozen. It’s also best to water early in the day so that water is absorbed and doesn’t freeze during the night.

Perennials: Once overnight temps have gotten below freezing and perennials die, cut back the dead brown stems to a couple of inches above ground level.

At Pradera, we offer new luxury homes on large .6 to 1.5 acre homesites in a gorgeous Douglas County setting. Many of our homesites back to either open space, or the award-winning Club at Pradera golf course. Take an aerial tour of the community here.  Homes at Pradera are priced from the $900’s.

Fall To-Do List For Your Home

praderaimage2Fall is always an exciting time of year as the hot days of summer give way to changing leaves and cooler temps of fall.  Now that the kids are back in school, it is a great time to take care of some to-do items around your home to dust off summer and prepare for fall and winter.  Consider these tasks:

1. Launder slipcovers and curtains – if you’re not sure whether or not they can be laundered, take them to the dry cleaner.

2. Give the kid’s rooms a deep clean – bedrooms can collect a lot of dirt and grime during the summer. Wipe down all surfaces and move and clean beneath furniture.

3. Edit your home library – remove books from shelves (clean beneath them) and give away books that are no longer of interest.

4. Deep clean the kitchen – this can be the most daunting of all tasks.  Break it down into smaller jobs and complete them over a series of days.  Clean out your pantry and dispose of out-of-date items, remove everything from your cabinets and give them a wipe-down, inside and out.  Also clean the interior and exterior of all appliances for a fresh start.

5. Clean carpeting and floors – consider having a professional clean all of your rugs and carpeting.

6. Clean the exterior of your home – empty pots that are no longer blooming, store yard tools and supplies for the winter, and clean up kids toys and find a good storage place for them until next year.

We hope that this list proves helpful for you as you transition your home for fall. If you are ready to move into the home of your dreams, consider Pradera. Now is a great time to sell your home and buy a new home as interest rates remain historically low, and homes are selling rapidly in the Denver area.  At Pradera we offer new homes in our European Hillside Collection from the $900’s. Homes in this collection are situated on large lots, many of which back to either the award-winning Club at Pradera golf course, or open space.

Summer Tasks for a Smooth-Running Home

The long days and warm temps of summer make it the perfect time to get caught up on routine home maintenance tasks. Take some time over the coming weeks to make sure that your home performs its best this summer, and also prepare it for fall. Here are some jobs to consider:

  • Check smoke and carbon monoxide detectors to ensure that they are functioning. Also replace batteries as needed.

  • Give your barbeque grill a deep cleaning. Check out this informative video from Weber Grills.
