How Can I Protect My Nashville Yard From Storm Damage?

1/24/2022 (Permalink)

You can expect storms to happen in Nashville in the winter months, and they can cause a lot of damage. You’ll want to be ready for whatever may come so that your property and belongings will be safe. Today we’re going to talk about a few ways you can prepare your home and surrounding property for storm damage:

What Are Some Important Steps I Should Take To Prepare My Property For A Storm? 

You may not think about your yard when it comes to storm damage, but it can actually be the area that is most affected when bad weather blows through. Here are some points to consider:

  • Landscaping. This is probably one of the most potentially dangerous parts of your yard when it comes to storms. Large trees that come down unexpectedly and branches that break off and are thrown in the wind can wreak havoc. Your windows, vehicles, and even your loved ones can be hurt by this kind of activity. Make sure the trees in your yard are properly cared for and trimmed back in anticipation of heavy weather. If a tree looks unhealthy, have it removed before it hurts someone. 
  • Trash. Larger items to be disposed of by the city should be in an area where they can do the least damage if winds pick them up. When these items are being piled up for disposal, place heavier items on top of lighter ones to lessen the chance that they get carried off. 
  • Lawn furniture. Designate a secure place to store your lawn furniture and umbrellas if bad weather is coming. A lawn chair can easily become a danger if it is carried about by high winds. 
  • Roofing. Inspect your roofing, rain spouts, and rain gutters before heavy weather hits to make sure everything is in good shape. High winds will tear off anything that is not secure and can lead to large leaks and long-term issues. 
  • Sheds. If you have a free-standing shed in your yard, give it a good once-over to ensure that it can withstand bad weather. If it is not secure, it could actually be blown across your yard or into your neighbor’s.
  • Tools. Remove yard work equipment, such as shovels, rakes, and hand tools, and place it in a secure spot ahead of bad weather.
