Spring is officially here! While spring brings the promise of warmer weather, spring break and summer vacation in the next few months, it’s also the perfect time to start thinking about your lawn care and lawn maintenance needs for the upcoming season. However, prior to getting started on a regular lawn care and maintenance package, we highly recommend a spring clean up. A spring clean up is a necessary first step towards a beautiful, green lawn and immaculate yard. If you’ve never hired a company to complete a spring clean up on your property, we wanted to share a breakdown of the standard services we provide to our customers. We want to be sure that you have the facts to be able to compare service providers and understand what type of services you should expect when hiring a professional lawn care and maintenance company.
Clean Up of Entire Property
Although this may sound like a no-brainer, it is often overlooked. During a spring clean up, the whole property gets cleaned up. Although you think not much is happening during the winter months, there are often weeds and other debris, including leaves and even garbage, that have accumulated throughout the winter that must be removed. With those unwanted items removed, the property is left with a fresh, clean look that’s ready to take on the fresh start that spring provides.
Redefine Plant Beds
The winter months can be harsh on bed lines. Each spring the bed lines need to be redefined. Redefining the bed lines allows for the mulch to meet the sod and create that fine line between lawn and bed that creates the crisp, finished look at the start of the season to be maintained all season long.
Fertilize All Plants and Shrubs
During the spring clean up is when we fertilize all plants and shrubs on the property. The best time to fertilize during the spring season before new mulch is installed - adding the fertilizer right to the soil around the roots. Fertilization during the spring clean up gives the plants a jump start for the season and provides a consistent time to fertilize each year.
New Mulch Installation
Once all of the weeds and debris are removed and fertilizer is applied, we install new mulch to complete the spring clean up for a fresh and clean look. For us, there’s just something about the bright green grass and buds on trees combined with fresh mulch that makes us happy throughout the spring season. And, we’ll admit, it’s tough to make a property look better than it does in the spring right after a clean up.
