Spring & Fall Clean Up

Spring Clean-Up

After a long winter, home owners have a lot of work to do to clean up and prepare for the spring season.  Removing winter-kill and old annuals & pruning dead branches  promotes clean growing conditions and reduces the opportunity for fungus and disease to become established.

Spring is also a good time to aerate your lawn.  It will ehlp loosen compacted soil and break up large soil clods, creating a mroe uniform texture with greater pore space.

A Spring Clean-Up is important for the overall health of your grass.  Weather permitting; we artart Spring Clean-Ups during the month of April.  Spring Clean-Ups consist of cleaning of all flower and shrub beds, the driveways, walkways, and property lines of all debris and such as leaves and branches.

Fall Clean-Up

Fall foliage is very beautiful in New England, that is until the leaves start falling.  A yard full of leaves is overwhelming to most home owners.  It could take a whole weekend to collect and bag all of your leaves.  We can take care of collection, removal, and disposal of your leaves thoroughly and efficiently.  Leave the hard work to Valley Lawn Care.

A Fall Clean-Up prepares your lawn for the winter season ahead.  Typically, Fall Clean-Ups are completed in November.  Fall Clean-Ups consist of cleaning all flower and shrub beds, driveways, walkways, and property lines of all debris such as leaves and branches.

Fall is also an excellent time of year for the following services provided by Valley Lawn Care:
     *  Feed the grass.  Fertilizing in the fall is excellent for your lawn.  Using a slow-release fertilizer allows the grass to soak up nutrients and – just as important – spend the cool days and nights of autumn recovering from summer heat and stress.  And building a healthy, rejuvenated lawn is one of the best ways to protect against heat, cold, drought, insects and other stresses.
     *  Remove thatch build-up.  A build-up of above ground roots called thatch prevents sunlight, oxygen and moisture from getting to the nutrient-hungry soil below.
     *  Aerate.  Heavy use throughout the summer can cause soil to become compacted.  Perforating your lawn with small holes helps reduce compaction and lets water, air and fertilizer get down to the soil, which strengthens the grass plant’s root structure.
