The typical Fall clean up includes blowing the leaves out of the beds and into the lawn, then bagging or blowing leaves to haul away or wooded area on your property if available. Along with the leaves we clean up any other debris such as sticks, litter, and perennial clippings.
Most of our customers get 2 rounds of fall cleanup to get their property in shape for winter. Some clients opt into weekly fall clean ups in replacement of their scheduled weekly mowing for an additional fee. Often this time of year, grass is growing slow enough, if you replace your weekly mowing with a weekly clean up visit, the cost is similar to a mow or slightly higher depending on the property. Most times we are able to keep your yard looking great straight through until the first snow.
During your fall clean up most perennials should be trimmed because they typically die back each year and it leaves a bit of a messier look in the beds when there is no snow to cover the dead plant matter. It is not uncommon for those who do not care about the appearance to leave the plant there to act as “insulation” to the root system during the early frost season in the spring, but it is standard practice for us to clean up the perennials during your visits as needed.
It is also important to remove leaves and pine needles from your lawn so that they don’t decompose and damage the grass. Removing the leaves from beds before they break down and stick to the mulch and become an eye sore keeps things looking tidy. Also, to much debris compost causes a higher soil acidity as it breaks down and leaves the wrong type of nutrients for your lawn and beds. High acidity levels cause a stunt in growth of the grass roots and thus creates a thinner, less lush turf.
