Bob Vila's 5 "Must-Do" October Projects

Now that fall is here, it’s time to get serious about home heating. That includes sealing off drafts with weather stripping and caulk, making certain your attic is properly insulated and that your furnace has been serviced. If you have a fireplace, insert, or stove, you’ll want to have those inspected as well. This is also the ideal time to ready the yard for winter—mulch beds, trim shrubs, plant spring bulbs and properly stow away outdoor furniture, grills, and yard equipment. But don't overlook the pleasures of the season. Leaf peeping, apple picking, and creative pumpkin carving await.
