SPRING CLEAN-UP & MULCHING
Spring Clean-Up is one of the most important parts of your yard maintenance regiments. The essential importance of performing a spring clean up is to maintain the health of flower beds, mulch beds, tree beds or anywhere that requires a new application of mulch. A good thorough clean up is the secret to a successful garden. Applying a fresh application of mulch to the landscape beds helps prevent erosion to the soil underneath, helping to reduce weed growth and insulating all plant roots.
BUSH & SHRUB TRIMMING
Shrub trimming and pruning are essential for proper growth. Maintaining your shrubs will add to the design of your landscape. Proper trimming requires knowing when and how, to achieve the best results for your landscaping. Simply by removing dead branches or shoots, it is possible to stop the progress of disease that can kill the entire tree or shrub. Many shrubs need a seasonal trim to look good for the following year.
Fall foliage may be beautiful to look at, but think twice before you allow it to accumulate on your lawn. If you don't keep up with leaf removal, a blanket of leaves can suffocate your grass and block it from getting the sunlight, water and nutrients it needs. A good rule of thumb is that if you can't see your lawn through the leaves, it can't grow. Proper leaf cleanup will give your grass enough room to breathe and help it come back healthier in the spring. Remove thick layers of leaves - especially those that are heavy and matted from rainfall - before they damage your lawn.
Spring may be special, but fall is fine for planting. Turfgrass, spring-blooming bulbs, cool-season vegetables, perennials, trees, and shrubs can all be effectively planted in the fall. Fall has distinct planting benefits. Autumn's cooler air temperatures are easier on both plants and gardeners. The soil is still warm, allowing roots to grow until the ground freezes. In spring, plants don't grow until the soil warms up.
Aerating does exactly what it sounds like and more. Air is critical to healthy root growth, so it shouldn't surprise you that aerating is a good thing. Aerating your lawn breaks through a thatch layer, enables the roots to breathe, and improves water and nutrient penetration. If that's not enough, aerating helps break down thatch by providing a better habitat for the microorganisms that do those sorts of things. Aerating annually is one of the best things you can do for your lawn, thatch or no thatch.
