As Delaware’s weather continues to cool down, home and business owners are beginning to take on seasonal maintenance tasks. Your lawn or garden likely needs some attention before it can be ready to withstand the snow, rain, and cold temperatures that are coming its way, and fall landscape cleanup is a great way to put your lawn’s best foot forward as we enter autumn. Here are a handful of tasks that home and business owners should consider as they organize fall landscape cleanup and seasonal maintenance services.
Debris and Leaf Removal: A Critical Component of Fall Landscape Cleanup
Leaves have not quite started to fall in earnest, but bits of debris can be found on many Delaware lawns. Twigs, leaves, trash, and other detritus should be removed regularly. A thick layer of fallen leaves or other material can wreak havoc on your grass, preventing sunlight, water, and air from reaching the plants. Consult the experts at Paul’s Lawn Service for fall landscape cleanup and leaf removal services throughout the fall season.
Overseeding, Aerating, and Other Grass Upkeep
Many property owners also choose to focus on their grass during the fall season, scheduling aeration, fertilizing, and overseeding services. The fall is a great time to aerate and fertilize your lawn: aeration ensures that air and nutrients can access the roots, and fertilizer helps boost your soil’s nutrients. Overseeding is a popular choice, too. By adding grass seed to thin or bare patches of your lawn, you can help ensure that your grass comes back thick and lush in the spring. However, you must overseed early enough for the grass to develop roots that are hardy enough to withstand the first fall frost. Contact the team at Paul’s Lawn Service to learn more!
Protect Sensitive Plants and Prepare for Fall and Winter
Finally, home and business owners must protect their sensitive plants from frost. Wood mulch, plastic sheeting, and a variety of other tools can help protect plants that are less cold hardy, and a landscaping expert should give your trees and perennials some much-needed attention. Consider pruning back any dead branches on your trees and shrubs, and add a fall annual or two while you’re at it.
