If you are lucky enough to have a pool, be sure to have a fence surrounding it that’s at least four feet high. For extra protection, you might consider pool covers and alarms for extra monitoring.
Make sure that any related gas for grills and barbecues tanks are stored out of reach. The same goes for any gasoline you may store for your lawnmower or any other lawn maintenance tools.
If your garage is full of tools, heavy boxes, and car care equipment, now is the time to organize and declutter.
Begin by moving toxic substances, like antifreeze, or sharp items, like saws and tools, out of reach or storing them in locked storage containers. Ensure any stacked boxes or containers are stable and unlikely to tip over.
A driveway can be prime real estate for breaking out the sidewalk chalk and creating an artistic masterpiece. However, it is also a place you will want to keep an extra eye on your little one.
When you do use the driveway for play, keep the fun as close to the house as possible. And when you have finished for the day, be sure to remove any toys, scooters, or bikes, to reduce the allure of this high-traffic area.
