Yard cleanup is usually done twice a year. Once in the fall, prepare your lawn and garden for winter, and again in the spring to clean up anything winter left behind. Is Spring cleanup necessary every spring? We think so; some years, depending on how harsh the winter season is, you may find it more necessary.
In this article, we’ll tell you why it’s necessary to schedule spring yard clean-up or do it yourself.
Spring cleanups clear your lawn of any debris.
Cleaning up your lawn of any debris will leave it open to absorb nutrients. Winds and snow may bring extra leaves and tree branches into your yard during the winter. Leaving those to rest on your grass can end up causing dead patches on your lawn. Doing spring cleanup will help so that the debris will be cleared from your lawn.
Your shrubs, bushes, and ornamental grasses will be prepped for the growing season.
Spring cleanups aren’t just for your lawn. They also help prepare your landscape for the upcoming growing season. Shrubs and bushes are trimmed, and ornamental grasses are cut down to prevent overgrowth. Routine trimming and pruning help shape your plants and keep them healthy by removing any dead or dying branches that could potentially weaken them, making them more susceptible to plant disease.
A fresh application of mulch ensures your beds and soil will be protected.
In spring, we recommend putting in a fresh application of mulch. Mulch should be replenished annually so landscape beds and soil can benefit from mulching most. These benefits include erosion prevention, soil insulation, and moisture retention.
A pre-emergent application helps prevent weeds from growing.
Applying pre-emergent weed control is another way to protect landscape beds. If included in a spring yard cleanup, this application helps to keep pesky weeds out of your landscaping, so they don’t steal nutrients that your landscape shrubs and plants need to thrive during the growing season.
