Spring Yard Cleanup Services
Around late March to early April, spring brings the warmer weather, which is when your grass and plants begin to wake from the dormancy of winter. There are vital landscaping and lawn care duties that are specific to springtime, even in warmer Louisiana. Besides the standard services of mowing, trimming, etc., listed above, the following services are important for spring cleanups.
Slow-Release Fertilizer & Weed Control
As the grass starts growing, you'll want to have our team apply a slow-release formula of fertilizer. This will allow the grass to have a strong start and recovery. For weed control, this is the best time to apply a preemergent treatment. During the winter, most of the weeds would have died off and this is the perfect time to stop them from coming back.
Mulching & Bed Preparation
Every year we advise that you have your mulch replaced in your landscaping. Mulch and rock are beneficial for both aesthetic purposes and for protection to the plants and soil in your landscaping bed. We will come, reshape your landscaping beds, and add in the necessary amount of mulch to bring renewed vibrancy to your yard (usually around 2 inches in thickness). Additionally, we will trim and prune your landscaping greenery in preparation for the warmer seasons ahead!
After winter, you'll find leaves, debris, sticks, and more on your lawn and landscaping. Our crew will come in and remove everything that does not belong on your lawn and leave it in a clean state. This prepares your lawn for routine weekly mowing services that are just around the corner!
Fall Yard Cleanup Services
Late October or early November is the perfect time to prepare your lawn and landscaping for the cooler months. The most important task during fall cleanups is by far leaf removal. However, this is also the time when your warm season grass will go into a state of dormancy, and require proper care.
Leaf raking and removal is imperative for the healthy growth of your lawn. Our team will come to rake, blow, collect, and remove leaves from your property before the cool weather settles in. Proper leaf removal is necessary because they can suffocate your lawn and prevent natural photosynthesis from happening. If you don't remove leaves from your lawn, they will:
- block sunlight
- reduce water evaporation
- create conditions for fungus, mold, and disease growth
- can spread insect infestation
- inevitably kill or destroy patches of your lawn
As the growing season comes to an end, this is the perfect time to apply a fast-release fertilizer treatment. This will allow your grass to get that last bit of growth and nutrients before it goes into a dormant state for the winter. When applying fertilizer during the fall, it will improve the growth when it comes out of dormancy in the springtime.
