Benefits of Finishing Touches Fall Yard Cleanup Services
Fall yard cleanup is the first step for the preparation of lawns to withstand cold temperatures in winters. We provide the best fall yard care services to prepare your lawn for the cold winter season, to help it grow green and lush come springtime.
While you might think of leaf removal as the core of fall clean-up, you might be surprised to discover that it has many other steps to follow. Essentially, fall clean-up is winterizing your outdoor space.
Other than raking and removing leaves, some other elements of fall clean-up include:
- Shutting down sprinkler systems for the winter
- Adding another layer of mulch to your flower bed.
- Removing annual flowers that won’t grow back next year.
- Covering ornamental ponds and shrubbery that doesn’t winter well.
- Lawn or Core aeration
Increases Soil Aeration
As you know, soil aeration is vital for the lawn to improve soil conditions for better plant growth. During our fall cleanup yard process, the soil is perforated to increase the aeration.
After the removal of debris, including leaf removal, dead branches, shrubs, or any other waste, aeration is performed. Aeration creates better airflow and irrigation to your soil, so it has the nutrients it will need over the winter season.
Perforating of the soil will break it up, allowing more oxygen and nutrients to the soil and then to the plants. As a result, your plants will grow and blossom better next spring.
Prevents Diseases and Infestation
Excess of fallen leaves form a layer over the soil and prevents the sunlight from reaching the soil. This reduces evaporation, which enables the growth of fungi like mold, mushrooms, and even breeds certain types of diseases that could seriously harm your garden. Not only does this affect the beauty of the lawn, but it will also affect the health of all plant life. No one wants moldy plants.
If fungal diseases do invade, this will result in discoloration of grass, and, if left, will actually grow mold between the blades. If your kids and pets are in this grass, the presence of mold can drastically affect their lungs, creating health issues.
The only way to prevent this is through doing a thorough fall yard cleanup. Finishing Touches understands the science behind a healthy lawn. Call us today for a beautiful lawn, totally free of disease, and perfectly safe for your family to play around in.
Enhancements for Next Season
Pruning and trimming trees and shrubs also leads these plants to bloom much better in the next season. We carefully prune the shrubs to remove limbs that pose a risk of falling and causing damage, which also improves the health of the whole tree.
We also do edging around your flower beds and trees to maintain your garden’s shape and prevent the grass from taking over your flower bed, and vice versa. Clean lines like these make your whole yard look like it’s well-maintained and cared for. Not only will your neighbors be jealous, but it also keeps the local HOA happy, too.
Then, an extra layer of organic mulch around the trees and flowers for several reasons. The main reason for mulching in the fall is to create a protective layer over the soil for the upcoming winter.
We look forward to the opportunity to help you with your upcoming project in these local areas:
