Manage Your Vegetation

You need to manage the vegetation around your home!

Overgrown vegetation around your home provides insects and moisture constant access to your exterior walls and potentially the bottom wall plate.  In addition, during the home inspection, vegetation this dense prevents the proper inspection of the lower portions of the walls.  As a homeowner, you will also lack the easy and daily ability to view your foundation walls and deal with insect or termite issues before they develop.  It is good management to trim vegetation 18 inches back from the surface of your home and to control their height.  Moreover, properly trimming bushes add curb appeal to your home.
