Seasonal Maintenance Tips for Lakefront Homes

Spring and Summer:

  • Landscaping and Erosion Control: With homes close to the water, managing runoff and preventing erosion is crucial. Native plants and strategic landscaping can help stabilize the soil and absorb excess water.
  • Deck and Dock Care: Regular inspections and maintenance of decks and docks ensure safety and longevity. Look for signs of wear, such as loose boards or corroding fasteners, especially after winter.
  • Window Care: Legacy South homes feature expansive windows to capture the stunning views of Tims Ford Lake. Keeping these windows clean enhances your view and protects the glass from water and mineral damage.

Fall and Winter:

  • Gutter Maintenance: Keep gutters and drains clear to prevent water damage and ice dams. Proper drainage is essential in protecting your home’s foundation and landscaping.
  • Heating and Insulation: Ensure your home is well-insulated to withstand the colder months. Lakefront homes, especially those with the scenic views offered by Legacy South, benefit from efficient heating systems to keep interiors warm without compromising the view.
  • Preventative Weatherproofing: Check for and seal any drafts around doors and windows. Proper weatherproofing keeps the cold out and reduces heating costs.
