It's time to clean up your compound! Do you know how to go about it?  It might seem like a daunting task because there are so many things that need to get done. 

There is no need to worry, though, because this blog post will provide easy ways for you to get started--from mowing the lawn and trimming hedging, cutting off a few trees, repainting the exterior of your house, and many others! Read on. 

Mow Your Lawn and Trim Hedges

The first thing that you want to do is mow your lawn. It's vital for many different reasons, but the main one is if you do not cut it, then it will grow too high, and that means over time, all of this extra grass becomes weeds that are going to make your property look very unkempt. 

The second step in keeping up with yard work would be trimming hedges. This can have two purposes. One purpose could be to keep them maintained so they don't become scraggly looking.

Another reason that you would want to trim hedges could be just because they are growing over the top of something else like another bush or a tree and causing it not to get enough sunlight, which in turn is going to cause those other plants to die off. 

Cut Off a Few Trees 

If you are going to plant another crop, it is time to cut away a few trees. This can be done by either cutting them down and girdling them – which means choking off their nutrients, so they wither and die. You may also want to consider having a professional tree services company to get the job done. 

However, in larger areas where tall trees provide shade cover over your entire garden throughout the day without affecting growth rates too much, it might not matter that much what happens with very young plants during the first season after planting. It's advisable, though, to try removing smaller pines before chopping up bigger ones. 

Repaint Your House's Exterior to Reduce Mold Growth 

The exterior paint on your home can have a direct impact on how long it takes for mold to start growing in and around your house's foundation. And if you want that foundation to last as long as possible, then repainting is something you'll need to do every few years or so anyway! 

If you're feeling adventurous with this one, consider doing all of the trim first before getting into other areas like shutters and doors. However, just because they are less evident than these things doesn't mean that they should be ignored either. Make sure to clean up small cracks where water may get behind them and scrape away any grime from previous paint jobs.

Once you have these areas looking good, it'll be time to start on the exterior of your home and get rid of any old paint that is not holding up its end of the bargain in terms of protecting against moisture damage!

In conclusion, there are many ways to clean up your compound. Whether you're looking for a quick fix or need something more involved, the tips listed above should help get things moving in the right direction.
