Home and Garden To-Do for December

Drain all outside water pipes. First, shut off the inside tap. Then, open the outside tap and let any water run out. Now close the outside tap again. Don't forget to drain your garden hose and any sprinkler hoses.

Clean or change your furnace filter.

Most of your leaves will have been raked by now, but you can still do a final raking before the snow falls.

Last call to hill up roses and wrap evergreens.

Get your snow shovel ready!
