Must Dos For Fall Cleanup

Sharing is caring!

Removing Debris is Critical for Future Lawn Health

 

The simple act of removing debris is the first thing to consider when making a battle plan for residential landscape property maintenance in Massachusetts. Removing branches, weeds, pet waste, and leaves, is critical in order to not smother and suffocate your lawn. Grass is a living organism, and proper air flow will spruce up any lawn. When landscaping in Massachusetts where so much debris builds up over the year it’s essential to work with a company that recognizes the basic principles of good lawn care.

 

Clean Gutters to Allow for Optimal Drainage   

 

One of the most neglected aspects of Fall clean up is attention to the gutters. Leaving foliage and debris in the gutters will quickly clog water pathways which will overflow down the siding of your home and cause damage, and a big mess. A lot of people simply do not want to navigate their roof which can be quite dangerous, so when considering a commercial landscaping company in Massachusetts make sure to choose one that doesn’t mind getting a little vertical to get the job done.   

 

Trim Snow Vulnerable Branches to Avoid Costly Damage and Injury

 

Every year property is damaged, and people are injured, from falling branches that should have been trimmed before winter. Most people do not have the tools or know how to get the job safely done. Like navigating roofs, pruning large branches can be a dangerous task.

Preparing Lawns in the Fall Insures Fantastic Looking Spring Grass

 

Preparation is half the battle when it comes to residential landscape property maintenance in Massachusetts. Aerating soil will promote healthy root systems and allow them to receive nutrients when they’ll need it most. In addition to aerating you’ll want to feed the lawn with the appropriate nutrients to help your lawn survive its winter sleep. One last mow to get the grass down to a short length will encourage soil to dry quickly come spring.

 

Tie Up All the Loose Ends Before the First Cold Snap Hits

 

When the freeze comes, things take a beating if not properly prepared. Make sure to drain water from all hoses, fountains, and irrigation. All tools should be cleaned and stored in a water proof area to insure they make it to Spring rust free. If you have plants that will be exposed, you’ll want to protect them by adding mulch and wrapping them in cloth or plastic. If you’re planting fall or winter plants, make sure to plant bulbs and annuals that do well in the cold seasons.
