5 Must-Know Benefits of a Spring Yard Cleanup
After the fall and winter seasons, turn over a new leaf with spring lawn care. Cleaning up your yard refreshes the space and prepares it for a vibrant growing season.
Professional services can optimize conditions for the year’s landscaping. Learn about the five must-know benefits of a spring yard cleanup.
1. Remove Debris That Fosters Mold, Mildew, and Fungi
During winter, trees and shrubs can become heavy with winter ice, causing branches to break off. Along with leaves, these branches and sticks can accumulate in your yard. Debris can become a hotspot for mold, mildew, and fungi growth. A lawn care specialist will remove this debris to encourage healthy growth.
2. Remove Dead or Damaged Wood From Shrubs
Many types of shrubs shouldn’t be pruned in spring because the process might accidentally remove dormant buds. But removing dead or damaged wood allows the plant to receive more sunshine and lowers the chances that the whole plant will become diseased. It will also give your shrubs a much neater appearance.
3. Aerate the Soil for Healthy Roots
The third must-know benefit of a spring yard cleanup is that it refreshes soil. When soil is tightly pressed together, it’s compacted, which is not good for roots. A landscaping contractor can put holes in the soil to bring air, water, and nutrients to roots. In the spring, aerate the ground before weeds germinate.
4. Protect and Nourish With Fresh Mulch
Sometimes people let leaves remain in their yard to decompose and supply the grass with organic matter. But most of the time, these leaf layers are too thick and can smother the grass instead. A landscape specialist can determine the ideal mulch type and apply the right amount to nourish the soil.
5. Prevent Weeds
Spring is the perfect time to apply a pre-emergent herbicide that prevents weeds from sprouting. The herbicide eliminates weeds without harming other plants, leaving you with a beautiful yard that requires less effort to maintain.
