Seasonal Lawn Cleanup
Has your yard been neglected? Are there so many leaves covering the grass that the pH is too high and your lawn has stopped growing — or worse yet — is dying? Spring and fall are perfect seasons for commercial and residential property cleanups. No matter if you’re looking for a quick spruce-up or a major overhaul, we can bring back the overall health of your lawn.
Lawn Cleanups Are Done At The Start & End Of The Season
Throughout the year, the different seasons drastically impact a lawn and landscaping. That’s why it’s important to both clean up after the last season and prepare for the new one.
During seasonal lawn clean-up, we recommend adding 2 inches to 3 inches of mulch to your flower beds. Doing so helps the soil retain moisture, maintain a stable temperature, and have access to nutrients. It's also essential to aerate, topdress, de-thatch, and seed lawns during any spring or fall yard cleanup.
Most home, business, and property owners recognize the need for lawn clean-up during or at the end of autumn. Leaves and twigs litter the ground, covering and killing grass and flowers. And in Florida, the beginning of autumn marks the end of hurricane season which brings heavy storms to the area. At Evergreen Lawn Care, we recognize that many people don’t have the time or equipment to clear leaves and debris left by the changing seasons, hurricanes, and tropical storms. Also, depending on where the debris falls, it can create a safety hazard to remove without professional training.
Fall cleanup occurs after the majority of the leaves on the trees have fallen. Once they do, removing the leaves and soil aeration allows the soil to get the oxygen, nutrients, and water needed for a healthy and growing lawn. It's also helpful to prune shrubs and cut back perennials now.
Spring is another time of the year that we recommend yard cleaning. During the spring, some trees shed their final leaves to make room for new blossoms. Of course, once those blossoms fall, your driveway, walkways, and parking lots will be covered. Spring storms can litter a landscape with limbs and other debris which can encourage fungal growth if not cleaned up. Unwelcome critters may also make their homes in the debris.
Cleanup in the spring helps to repair any winter damage and prepare for warmer weather. It involves removing any leaves and prepping your flower gardens for spring, such as pruning shrubs and removing branches, limbs, and debris.
