The change of seasons can have a profound impact on your landscaping and the health of your lawn. Excess debris, leaf litter, and other organic materials that aren’t dealt with in a timely manner can be more than just unsightly. These materials can cause dead spots in your turf, impact soil chemistry, promote diseases with your trees and other plants. Some of these unwanted organic materials can even harbor mold spores that are dangerous to the health of people and pets!

CM’s offers professional cleanup services for the spring as well as the fall.

Spring Cleanup

Spring is an exciting time full of promise and things quickly turning green. Leftover leaves that have partially rotted or developed mold spores, sticks that were trapped under winter snow, and other debris can be bothersome as well as time-consuming to clean.

At the same time, the harshness of winter and potential lapses in fall preparation can lead to issues with the health of your turf. Areas of dead grass, compacted soil, thinned grass and pet damage can quickly lead to other problems. Bare spots can host difficult weeds, and compacted soil issues can make it hard for your grass to thrive in the warm sun of summer.

CM’s offers a broad menu of spring cleanup services including:

  • Clearing away organic debris like old leaves, branches, and assorted clutter

  • Turf Aeration to help address problems with thatch and soil compaction

  • Reseeding bare spots and thinned areas of grass

  • Updating and realigning edging

  • Redefining borders

  • Cleaning flower beds and clearing garden debris and flower beds

  • Pruning and trimming trees and shrubs for ideal summer growth

  • Planting new softscape features such as annual plants and flowers

Fall Cleanup

Fall is often spent with friends and family. From Labor Day to Halloween, we gather together a few last times before the cold ravages of winter settle in. It is during this time that we often look upon the red, orange, and yellow foliage of our trees and can’t help but appreciate the beauty. Fall also means there is work to be done in the near future. Raking leaves, picking up sticks, and preparing your plants for winter all move up the to-do list during this time of year.

CM’s fall clean-up services include things like:

  • Raking and composting leaves

  • Protecting perennial plants, trees, and flowers

Spring and fall can be times of frenetic activity in your life as well as with your lawn and landscaping. In these times you can always lean on CM’s seasonal maintenance service to give your outdoor space the professional care it needs.
