Fall clean-up landscaping
A thorough fall clean-up includes pruning, protecting plants, and clearing drainage areas of debris. It also means applying pre-emergent herbicides to stop weed seed germination while temperatures are moderate.
Tree and Snow Removal Service LLC ensures you get the most out of your yard next year by following our fall clean-up checklist.
These perennial grasses can make a mess on your property in windy conditions. Snow also adds extra weight to it, stressing them.
Consider cutting your grass before it is dormant. Your lawn will grow again in spring, increasing its height and volume.
In winter, your dwarf perennial grasses can be at risk, for their tops will freeze and die back.
We recommend mowing the lawn before the first frost, most likely between mid to end of October.
Prune your ornamentals to remove dead or dying twigs.
Do some selective hand pruning if necessary.
Unless you need to remove dead branches from your evergreens, don’t prune them because their wounds won’t heal, leaving the tree vulnerable during cold winters.
Removing leaves will provide an aesthetic and a clean appearance to your landscape.
The leaves are a great source of phosphorus, and it is essential to reincorporate this into the soil when possible. You can try composting leaves, as this organic matter will benefit soil health.
Oak, magnolia, and pear trees hold their leaves during winter. So you shouldn’t worry about them.
We ensure that all drains on your property are debris-free.
Leaves can pile up, suffocate the turf, and clog the drainage.
We constantly monitor your drains to make sure they are free and clear.
Leaving weed seeds unchecked in the fall can result in weed sprouting in spring. For that reason, we ensure to apply a pre-emergent herbicide to stop further seed germination.
Another way to stop the germination is to cover your soil with sun-blocking organic or synthetic mulches.
Save this tip: Weeds don’t like nor want any competition, so they will wait until no other living plants are around before germinating. So, one option would be to plant cover crops.
Drain all water from hoses, drip irrigation systems, fountains, and other features.
This step will keep the leafcutter ants at bay. Keep focusing on rose beds, as their foliage can foster disease over the winter.
Use mulch for young trees, shrubs, and flower beds to boost nutrients, control weeds, and keep roots warm.
Prepare your lawn with nutrients to survive winter in a healthy condition. Apply fertilizer during fall and enjoy a lush, green lawn in spring.
Prevent mold and mildew by giving the deck a good power wash, dry well, and add a weatherproofing stain to protect the wood from moisture damage over the winter.
Eliminate all leaves, twigs, branches, and debris from lawn and planting beds.
Prune during fall for a neat winter look and prevent snow damage.
We hope you enjoyed these fall cleanup recommendations to get a green, healthy, and lush lawn next year.
