Spring yard clean up isn’t just to make your curb appeal tidy. It’s also to keep your lawn grass and landscapes healthy by removing debris that could cause disease or give rodents a place to hide. In this blog post, you’ll learn more about what’s involved in professional spring yard cleanups as well as how you can get your residential property looking well-kept again.
While each company is different, there is a chockful of services you can count on when you hire a lawn maintenance business to spruce up your lawn and landscapes.
Here are 8 spring yard clean up services Lowes Landscaping performs:
1. Take out the trash: Some people are rude and will throw trash out of their car windows or while they’re walking by your home. And their trash may have ended up in your yard over the winter. Windy days and trash collection don’t work well together either, and you may see trash on your property because of it. Our company will pick up trash and dispose of it as part of our yard clean up services.
2. Rake out leaf litter and other organic debris: Did you rake up all of your leaves last fall? Or was there a tree or two that didn’t let go of their leaves until late winter? Whatever the reason, winter storms can bring down limbs and leaves. Our company will rake up this debris and compost it or bag it for you to put to the curb.
3. Clean out flower beds: Your flowerbeds and other landscaped areas need clean up too. Leaves, weeds, and sticks get embedded in the soil or even cover your flowerbeds. Our service will clean your beds so your flowers, shrubs and trees can breathe again. Our company will rake up this debris and haul it off for your convenience.
4. Prune your trees and shrubs: Early spring is a great time to prune your trees and shrubs. If our company provides pruning services!
5. Freshen up your flowerbeds’ mulch: There should only be two inches of mulch in your flowerbeds and under your trees and shrubs. So, the springtime is a great time to add a fresh mulch application.
6. Apply the first dose of fertilizer to your yard: After your yard is cleaned up, your lawn professional will apply the first fertilizer treatment of the season.
7. Edge your lawns and flowerbeds: Create a boundary between your flowerbeds, landscapes, sidewalks and lawns. Professional edging creates clean lines that separate different parts of your yard and landscape. The result—a well-kept property with clean boundaries.
8. Apply pre-emergent weed control: After your property is cleaned up, depending on the weather, it’ll be time to get your spring pre-emergent weed control added to your lawn.
