Spring Cleanup

Give your lawn a healthly start in spring

Not sure if you need a spring cleanup? Not only does it improve the look of your yard, there are also some benefits that can keep your lawn healthier. Leaves that are left over from the fall will prevent the lawn from getting good sunlight, which can cause the lawn to die out in areas. Leaves that are left in the beds can harbor fungal diseases that will affect your shrubs or flowers.

  • Lawn is raked to pick up matted grass and to remove dead debris in lawn
  • Sticks are picked up from the lawn and hauled away
  • Leaves are blown out of landscaped beds, patios, window wells, shrub areas
  • Leaves and dead grass are vacuumed and chopped into powder with mulching mowers
  • This powder is loaded with nutrients that feed the grass and give your lawn a healthy start in Spring.
  • Your yard is left neat and clean, “awake” and ready to green up in a few days.

Dethatching / Power Raking

The thatch layer is a normal accumulation of organic matter that sits on top of the soil, at the base of the grass plant. It is a benefit to the lawn, full of nutrients and full of beneficial microorganisms, it also prevents the lawn from drying out too quickly. In a healthy lawn the thatch layer could be half an inch to 1 inch thick. If the thatch has accumulated to more than 1 inch, which is not very common, then dethatching could be helpful. If the thatch layer is too thick, it may result in a shallow root system of the grass, which leads to dry, disease prone and weak turf. The dethatching should be done early in the season, often with the spring cleanup, before the grass plants fill in. When done at the proper time, the dethatching rake will lift out some (not all) of the thatch so it can be mulched or removed. Core aeration is another method that can be done in spring or fall to reduce thatch.

Thatch is not due to leaving grass clippings on the lawn or from using a mulching mower to chop up leaves. Mulching is a healthy practice, which results in a richer, organic soil and it provides significant nutrients to your lawn. By using a mulching lawn mower, you can decrease the amount of fertilizer you are using on your lawn by one pound per thousand square feet per year.

  • We go over the big areas two or three times with the rakes on the mowers.
  • Smaller areas are hand raked or we use a small power rake.
  • Thatch is then mulched into nutrients that are a benefit instead of a hindrance.
  • Most sunny areas can benefit from having this done every year with the spring cleanup.

Roof & Gutter Cleaning

This is most often done after the tree seeds have dropped in late spring & again with yard cleanups in the fall before it freezes permanently.

Fall Perennial Cleanup

Perennials are cut down and debris is removed so your garden is ready to go in the spring time.

Lawn Aeration Service

Over time the earth on your lawn will become more compact. You may begin to notice how this compaction affects the growth of your grass. Mechanical lawn aeration is the process of loosening the earth by poking a series of holes that allow air, water, and nutrients to seep into the grass’ roots. Penetrating the roots of your lawn will allow your grass to grow more luscious and fuller.
