The end of summer is such a bitter sweet time. Gone are those lazy weekends of camping, hiking or simply lying around soaking up the sun. The kids are getting ready to go back to school and you are spending your weekends getting ready for those harsh days of fall and winter. For most people preparing for fall with a tarp or two makes that fall and winter preparation much easier.
Tarps come in a wide variety of sizes and shapes. Some are designed for specific uses while others are made for general use. Here are some of the different kinds of tarps that may come in handy as you prepare for that harsh winter weather tarpaulin covers.
Boat tarps come in different sizes to fit different size boats from that small row boat to more luxury models. Boat tarps not only keep the snow and ice out of your boat but also, protects the boat from the harsh winds, hail and sleet.
Pool tarps are a great inexpensive way to cover your pool. Now you won’t have to worry about draining that swimming pool to prevent dirt and debris and excess water from rains and melting snow from getting into your pool. Pool tarps can keep your water free of all these things over those cold winter months.
Leaf tarps can make cleaning up those fallen leaves a whole lot easier. Simply lay the tarp flat, brush those leaves onto the tarp, pull the draw string and take the leaves to your compost pile. No more filling bags or wheelbarrows and running back and forth countless times. Leaf tarps hold a huge amount of leaves which saves you trips running back and forth to that compost pile or where you need to take those leaves.
Leaf tarps are also great in the garden when pulling up those old dead corn stalks and seasonal flowers which means that it will take you less time when preparing your garden in the spring.

Poly tarps are great for general coverage. They can be used to keep that wood pile for your wood burning stove dry and free of snow and ice. They can be used to cover your patio or deck furniture, and multitude of other things when there just isn’t inside space to store them.
You can also use poly tarps for re shingling that roof in preparation for winter. Instead of simply throwing those old tiles on the ground to be cleaned up later throw them on a tarp where they can just be hauled away.

However, with so many different sizes, shapes and styles of tarps that preparation can be made easier than ever before. There is simply no better way of preparing for fall than with a tarp or two or three. Check them out and you will agree.
