Seasonal Clean-Ups

Spring Clean-ups

Following the winter months, your yard will require more maintenance than just a typical lawn service. Repairing the damage done by snow and ice and removal the protective barriers naturally occurring over the Winter is essential to ensuring your lawn’s health throughout the warmer seasons.

Some Spring Clean-up Services Include:

  • Removing Fallen Tree Limbs and Debris
  • Removing Any Trash or Litter
  • Cleaning Salt and Sand from Driveways and Walkways
  • Edging of Flower Beds, Gravel Beds and Walkways
  • Pruning Overgrowth from Trees and Shrubs

Summer Clean-ups

Summer is big for lawn care. This is the time when the grass flourishes, and it needs to be mowed at least once a week. Hot summer months also call attention to irrigation. Lawns and gardens need one to two inches of water once a week. This process can be done twice a week depending on the climate. This season also requires keeping an eye out for weeds and insects. Some insects, such as aphids, can be removed organically with a healthy dose of ladybugs.

Trees and flowers still need attention during the summer. It’s important to prune dead flowers once a plant starts blooming to encourage further flowering. Hedges also require trimming as new growth starts to appear. Mulching may be required around trees and flower beds, but it’s important to keep it a couple inches away from tree trunks. Other parts of the yard, such as flowers and vegetables need to be fertilized monthly. As vines and climbing vegetables grow, take the time to train them around their supports through tying or pruning. Outside of yard work, use free time in the summer to weed in between the cracks in walking paths. Other work, such as painting and staining the exterior of a building may be required after months of steady sunshine.

Fall Clean-ups

Fall clean-ups get rid of leaves and organic matter that build up when the weather turns cold and leaves start falling.  It is good to get the debris off the lawn because it is not ideal for it to sit there all winter covered by snow.  The leaves start to rot and get moldy.  It could also lead the the grass being killed if not taken care of early enough in the spring.
