As the vibrant foliage of summer transitions to the colorful tapestry of autumn in Maine and New Hampshire, it’s time to prepare your yards for the coming winter. Boulay Landscaping offers a range of fall cleanup services that can help you maintain a beautiful and healthy landscape while ensuring your outdoor spaces are ready to weather the cold months ahead. In today’s blog, let us share with you what we do and what we recommend you or your landscaper do for your home or business property.
Fall Cleanup To Do’s
1. Leaf Removal: The most apparent sign of fall is the dropping of leaves from trees and shrubs. While the fall foliage is stunning, fallen leaves can smother your lawn and create a breeding ground for lawn diseases. Boulay Landscaping can efficiently remove leaves from your property, keeping your lawn healthy and free from debris.
2. Pruning and Trimming: Fall is an ideal time for pruning and trimming trees and shrubs. Proper pruning promotes healthy growth and enhances the overall appearance of your landscape. Our experts can identify and trim overgrown or dead branches, improving the structural integrity of your plants. Proper pruning and trimming also reduce the chances of fallen or broken branches causing damage if we get a bad winter or ice storm.
3. Lawn Aeration and Overseeding: Fall is a great time to address lawn issues. Boulay Landscaping offers aeration services to relieve soil compaction, allowing nutrients and oxygen to reach the roots. We can also overseed your lawn to fill in bare patches and promote lush grass growth in the spring.
4. Mulching: Applying a layer of mulch in the fall can protect plant roots from freezing temperatures and retain moisture. Boulay Landscaping can help you choose the right mulch and apply it to your garden beds.
5. Winterizing Irrigation Systems: Before winter’s freeze arrives, it’s crucial to winterize your irrigation system to prevent damage. Our experts can drain and blow out your system, ensuring it’s ready for the cold season.
6. Seasonal Planting: Fall is an excellent time to plant certain trees, shrubs, and bulbs that thrive in cooler temperatures. Our team can help you choose and install the right plants to enhance your landscape.
7. Gutters Cleaning: Don’t forget gutters! Removing any debris, dirt, and leaves from your gutters and downspouts ensures your gutter system is free of clogs and allows rainwater and melting snow and ice to properly flow from the roof and away from house sides and foundations. Let the professionals of Boulay Landscaping get up on the ladders and roof. Do not risk falling and injuring yourself.
8. Snow Removal Planning: While not part of fall cleanup, preparing for winter means planning for snow removal. Boulay Landscaping offers snow plowing and removal services to keep your driveways and walkways safe and accessible throughout the winter. Make sure you are on our list of customers for this service.
