The key to a green, lustrous lawn in the spring is proper maintenance during the fall. Learn why fall cleanup service is a key contributor to beautiful landscaping year-round.
Protect Your Landscaping With Seasonal Maintenance
In the fall, your lawn needs more attention than you may think. As temperatures drop, warm days and cool nights make fall the perfect time to establish new grass and strengthen your existing lawn. Several proactive measures help your commercial property stand out from the rest after the fall and winter. Hire a professional landscaping company to perform fall cleanup services that lead to healthy, vibrant grass once spring rolls around.
What Is Fall Cleanup?
Fall cleanup services are more than just leaf removal from your commercial property. As the seasons change, so do your lawn care requirements. Prepare your site for the upcoming cold weather. Fall cleanup services offer the following benefits:
Water damage prevention
Weed and pest control in the spring
A lush and green lawn for your commercial property can be achieved with thorough, streamlined procedures performed by professionals. In depth services include:
Leaf and Debris Removal
Leaf removal gives your commercial property a professional, clean-cut image. Avoid major pile up by implementing leaf removal during the fall every other week.
Leaves and other green waste including sticks and brush can get caught in drainage gates and inlet or outlet pipes. When they are left there, the moisture in the winter causes blockage and flooding in severe cases.
Landscapers leave a small amount of organic matter, as this is beneficial to your soil’s health. However, too many leaves on the lawn during extreme low temperatures or the winter suffocate the turf. Leaf and debris removal as needed prevents dead spots on your lawn come spring.
Fertilizer and Pesticide Application
Fall is a great time to apply pre-emergent fertilizers to prevent weed seed germination later on, which leads to weeds in the springtime. Proper fertilizers establish a healthy, green lawn for your commercial property. They nourish the soil and plants while keeping weeds away. Fertilizers also protect the surrounding landscaping.
Pesticides keep insects away and prevent disease by using safe, natural methods. When pesticides are applied properly, they’re most effective, less harmful to the environment. That’s why it’s important to hire professionals to perform this task using industry-trusted supplies and chemicals.
Prune and Trim Shrubs
Professional landscapers control the growth of trees and bushes around your commercial building. Waiting until the spring’s growing season has already started limits the plant’s potential to flourish. Trimming and pruning in the fall removes the branches that are diseased, dying, or already dead. This keeps your plants healthy and helps them stay strong during the fall and winter, increasing their lifespan. That’s because pruning creates a healthier plant and helps it focus on newer growth and stops decay in its tracks. This contributes to a stronger and healthier plant in the spring.
Compacted soil hinders proper root development, and limits oxygen intake. Fall aeration eliminates this issue with a strategic process that places small holes in the lawn by removing small plugs of soil. Then the soil breaks down on the surface, while the holes help air, water, and nutrients soak into the roots.
Aeration minimizes the likelihood of your commercial property needing total lawn renovation for the next spring, which is necessary when lawn damage is beyond spot treatment. It also triggers healthy root growth despite the upcoming turf stress of the wintertime.
