Spring and Fall Cleanups
Spring Cleanups are a very important start to the year for your yard. Good healthy grass requires removing dead leaves, power raking and the first cut and trim of the season. We blow out all your garden beds, grass and areas that are gathering leaves. We power rake (de-thatch) your lawn to get rid of the dead grass from the winter season, hand rake, cut and trim your lawn and remove all the debris.
Power Raking (or De-Thatching) is important because it brings excess dead grass to the surface and requires walking back and forth in a pattern similar to mowing the lawn. The many benefits of power raking includes increasing the effectiveness of fertilization, watering and pest control allowing for thicker and healthier growth of your lawn.
Power raking is only done in the spring before the grass is completely green and has established its rooting system for the season.
When summer comes to an end, the most important step to maintaining a healthy lawn is a Fall Cleanup. It’s important to have some leaves left on your lawn over the winter for protection, but too many is not only harmful, but damaging. Leaves will get wet and mold over the winter which can effect your lawn and how it looks in the Spring.
Pruning and maintenance is important for the health of your trees, shrubs, and hedges. Proper care will increase the beauty and the longevity of your trees. Another reason to properly trim your trees is safety, branches that are dead or obstructive can create hazards on your property. Most hedges and shrubs require seasonal care to either prepare or revive them. Pruning helps maintain the structural integrity of your trees, mitigating the risk of broken and falling branches down the road as well as improving their health and aesthetic.
Yard Clean Up
Yard cleanup is essential to the maintenance and beauty of your green spaces. Beyond the seasonal cleanups for fall and spring, regular maintenance throughout the year is also important.
