Fall cleanup refers to maintaining your lawn as the seasons change throughout the year. During the fall, the leaves can fall in higher quantities than they would any other time, due to the trees’ preparation for winter. This means that you’ll see more and more leaves building up on your lawn, porch, driveway, deck, and even along your storm drains. It’s vital that you keep these areas clean and free from leaves to avoid unnecessary flooding during a rainstorm or more difficult cleanup once the temperatures drop even further.
Leaf raking is likely the first step to your fall cleanup routine. Raking your leaves can seem like a tedious process, only because once you remove some of the leaves, new ones can continue reappearing throughout the fall season until the trees are completely bare. While leaf raking is a great way to consolidate all of the existing leaves on your lawn, it’s not a sustainable way as the leaves can easily keep building up and building up. For our fall cleanup services, we recommend scheduling them towards the end of the fall season when most or all of the leaves have completely fallen, so only one job is needed to remove the leaves. If you have lots of trees and need the leaves removed in bulk sooner, we’d be happy to help with our leaf raking services that aim to remove as many as possible in one session.
Wondering what happens to the leaves once we rake them? Well, you can rest easy knowing that we’ll dispose of them for you! What usually happens is that we’ll see how many leaves you actually have in your lawn and determine the best way to remove them. This can be done two ways, either with raking and bagging or by using an attachment on a lawn mower that filters the leaves and shreds them during the mowing process. Whatever method is chosen, you can be sure that we’re using your leaves for sustainable purposes, typically mulch and gardening nutrients that can be re-used in other gardening and landscaping projects.
Tree trimming or pruning, is the process of removing the tops and tips of your trees’ branches to prevent excess debris from falling and to keep your trees healthier for future growth. Tree pruning can provide several benefits from reducing the crown of your tree to thinning it out so there are less insects and pests attracted to its interiors. It can also reduce the amount of leaves that fall during the rest of the autumn period.
Miscellaneous Debris Removal
Other fall cleanup materials that have a tendency to drop on the lawn or patio in bulk include branches, acorns, and other seeds or tree bits. To avoid stepping on an acorn, pine-cone, or a branch, we offer miscellaneous debris removal to help scoop up those items and remove them as well. Miscellaneous debris removal doesn’t just need to be done during a fall cleanup, as these kinds of items have a tendency to drop throughout the year, so we can easily schedule miscellaneous debris removal even during our weekly landscaping and lawn care services.
