Spring and Fall Cleanup

Spring and Fall Cleanup

It is extremely important to understand that how your yard looks throughout the season is dependent on the initial clean up at the beginning and at the end of the season. 


The spring clean-up sets the tone for the rest of the year and starts the growing season off right. Basic services performed in a spring clean-up include: debris removal, tree branch trimming and removal, garden mulching, and pruning hedges, bushes or ornamental grasses. Removing all winter debris cleans up the yard and removes any decaying material that may be harboring pathogens and pests which could be harmful to your plant life.


We always recommend spring clean-up to our clients for five reasons:

  • Debris removal: Your lawn and garden is exposed to a lot of breakdown in the winter months. The weight of snow and ice in combination with wintery winds leads to fallen leaves, twigs, and other debris that not only make a mess, but that can also interfere with your spring lawn and garden blooming. We clear it all away so your lawn and garden can breathe and fill out properly.
  • Mulching: Mulch tidies everything up, prevents weeds and gives your garden a “finished” look throughout the summer months.
  • Get ahead of the game: It’s not uncommon to plan to do your spring garden clean up but busy schedules get in the way. We do the hard work so you can get ahead of the game and also enjoy warm spring weather without the worry of property maintenance.
  • Clean slate: If you love beautiful lawns and gardens, you’ll have a clean slate for your summer growth and plantings.




Just like you would tidy and close up your cottage for the winter season, a fall clean up is a necessary service to tidy up your property before the winter. In the weeks subsequent to the last mowing (end of October) and after the majority of your leaves have dropped, we will be conducting fall clean-ups. The main focus of this final clean-up is to clear lawns and gardens of debris and litter and prepare the grass and gardens for a long winter. Topping up mulch in your gardens can also add a layer of protection for your gardens during the winter months. Decomposing plant material can be a haven for insect eggs, fungi and plant diseases, allowing them to take hold in your yard and attack your lawn and plants in the spring. We can also prepare your trees and shrubs for cold conditions by pruning and removing dead twigs and branches..


There are five benefits to starting your garden prep in the fall including:

  • Early start: The clean-up you do now gives you a jump on spring garden maintenance.
  • Preventing pests and diseases: By clearing away debris, you reduce the risk for pests and diseases in the spring. Mould spores from fallen leaves contaminate soil, which can then reinfect shrubs and trees in the spring. You also reduce the spread of fungal growth and bacterial infections.
  • Protects your lawn and allows it to breathe so it doesn’t collect water
  • Keeps your perennial beds and vegetable gardens healthier as temperatures rise
  • If you have fruit trees, helps avoid the reestablishment of pests and fungus from rotting fruit on the ground
