Why Fall Clean-Up is Important

fall-cleanup

Fall brings with it the changing of colors and beautiful landscapes. Eventually those bright leaves fall off the trees creating a fun play environment for children and pets. This also means a lot of necessary clean-up work which shouldn’t be skipped.

Why do you need to clean-up those leaves?

  • Your grass and plants need sunlight to thrive. Leaving leaves on the lawn deprives them of this and will cause brown and/or dead patches.
  • Similar to sunlight, oxygen is vital to the health of your lawn. Leaves on the lawn suffocate your grass plants.
  • Moisture is trapped within the turf underneath the leaves which can create fungus issues.

What else is important in a final fall clean-up?

  • Have your lawn mowed shorter than normal (around 3 inches). This will help to prevent fungus issues.
  • Prevent snow and ice damage to your hedges and shrubs by trimming them one last time. It will also offer a neat winter appearance to your property.
  • Eliminate the likelihood of pest issues by pruning dead wood or cross branches.
  • Remove all leaves, branches, twigs and debris from lawn and planting beds.
  • Help promote growth in the spring by “dead-heading” perennial flowers.
  • Mulch should be turned and roughed up for a neat appearance and to eliminate any mold that may be setting in.

Promote healthy turf growth in the Spring by applying Fall fertilizer. A complete fall clean-up is the key to preparing your landscape for a long winters nap and ensuring that it awakes happy and healthy in the spring. Putting in the time or money for a proper fall clean-up will pay off come spring with a beautiful and healthy yard!

Hiring your Snow Plow Contractor

Snowplow truckTake hiring your snow plow contractor seriously-they are coming to work at your home or business! This should be someone trustworthy, and someone who is insured. The job itself requires an individual who is motivated and reliable. Someone who will crawl out of bed when all others are sleeping and drive in dangerous conditions to ensure you can exit your driveway and make it to work & other engagements each day. Or, someone who keeps your business lot clear so customers can get in. Some key tips:

  • Ask for an estimate so you know what cost to expect in advance
  • Sometimes paths and stairs need to be cleared. Or salted. Talk about it at the beginning of the season & make sure this price is reflected on the proposal.
  • Contracts should spell out if they’re per trip or seasonal. Most contractors will offer both options. They should have a start and end date.
  • Evidence of insurance may be requested.
  • Feel comfortable asking for references!
