Fall is nearly upon us and that means leaves begin to fall and lawn clean up begins! There are many reasons why you should get your yard ready for winter, but in this article, we will focus on the top three reasons in our opinion. It is also a good idea to hire a professional team of experts to help prepare your outdoor spaces for the upcoming winter months. It will give you a head start when Spring arrives!
Fallen leaves provide a home to insects
Pests are always looking for a warm comfy home for the cold Winter months. Fallen leaves that are ignored give them a great place to hunker down. Removing the leaves when they fall means you will have fewer unwanted pests in the Spring.
Bushes and trees are much easier to trim without leaves
We all have one or two (probably more) bushes that make us a little bit crazy because of their explosive growth in the Spring and Summer. Fall and Winter are great times to get in there and dramatically cut them back while their leaves are gone. Professional arborists are experts at keeping bushes and trees trimmed. They will make sure it is healthy and under control prior to the growing season. The missing leaves allow them a much better view into the internal structure, meaning they can easily make the precise cuts needed for healthy growth.
Less debris in the yard means a cleaner house
If you have kids or dogs, you know that leaves will find a way to track into the house during the winter. Keeping the backyard tidy and clear of debris means your backdoor entryway remains free of potential invaders that create a mess inside of your home. This is especially true after a snowmelt when remaining leaves, pine needles, etc., become wet and attach themselves to our shoes and our dogs’ paws!
Hire a lawn cleanup company this fall!
If you are like many people, busy beyond belief, then it makes sense to hire a lawn clean up company that can also handle more complex projects to come out and handle all these things for you. Cleaning up your yard is more than raking leaves. Properly pruning trees and shrubs makes all the difference in how they grow back in the Spring. Take advantage of this time! It is a great opportunity to get ahead of the game.
