Fall is just around the corner!


Here are some things Fall Cleanups include and why they’re important for your property during the winter months!

  • Clean out fallen debris: Clearing out fallen debris will keep critters at bay and keep your lawn healthy over the colder months.
  • Prune Trees and Shrubs: Trim up dead, damaged, rouge, or diseased branches.
  • Clean out the gutters: Clear leaves and other fallen debris from the gutters and check for proper drainage.
  • Dry everything out: Drain all water from hoses, fountains, and irrigation systems. Schedule a time for us to winterize your irrigation system!
  • Aerate: We can aerate your lawn to break up soil and keep water from pooling. This will help guarantee the nutrients will reach the roots over the cold season.
  • Feed the lawn: One good fertilization before winter will encourage good root growth and give you a greener lawn come next spring.
  • Rake and mulch: Don’t let fallen leaves suffocate your lawn!
  • Give it one last mow: Set your mower to a low setting and give the lawn one last mow.
  • Protect cold-sensitive plants: Adding mulch to the base and wrapping plants in cloth barriers can prevent damage from freezing in the winter.
  • Plant some fall plants for color: Some plants do better when planted in the fall. Fall annuals can also add some color to your yard while other plants sleep for the season.
