Here’s how we can help you with yard work! 7 examples from our activity

Yard work is one of the most important home maintenance services we offer, together with handyman services, staining & painting, power washing, gutter cleaning, junk removal, and backsplash tile install. We are talking about some of the most important chores you could do for the surroundings of your house, both in terms of appearance, as well as cleanliness. However, most people find this job annoying, difficult, and time-consuming. Without further ado, here are 7 examples of such tasks we would be more than happy to perform for you:

1. Raking. First of all, we will help you rake since this should be your top yard work priority. Raking in the early spring will help remove all the dead grass that would otherwise build up and become thatch. While raking, we will examine your lawn for any matted patches, get rid of the damaged grass, and allow the new one to grow quicker and more even;

2. Pruning shrubs. Next, we will remove the shrub shelters around the bushes in your yard and check if they need to be pruned. Removing dead and damaged branches is also part of our work. Then, we will take a look at the live branches, which might also need pruning in order to give the shrubs a more pleasant aspect;

3. Fertilizing. Step three involves fertilizing, an important process regardless of the area’s climate. We will feed your lawn the necessary nutrients for it to thrive and become green again. There are two suitable times to fertilize the lawn – during spring and autumn – therefore it’s up to you when you call us. Before the actual activity, we will check the soil’s pH level, for optimal treatment;

4. Applying herbicides. Our yard work also includes applying pre-emergent and post-emergent herbicides. The first one forms a shield on the grass, inhibiting seed germination, while the latter help combat severe weed infestation, such as dandelions which show up almost immediately after the winter;

5. Planting trees, shrubs, and flowers. We also help you plant trees, shrubs, and hardy perennial flower borders. In warmer climates, this activity is done at the end of January or in February, while in colder climates, it’s recommended right before summer (at the end of May). In other words, this activity should be done only after the last frost date;

6. Checking the sprinkler & irrigation systems. Another important aspect deals with checking the sprinklers and irrigation systems. We will go through each manually, making sure that they don’t malfunction and that they spray the designated places while providing sufficient water for each plant, as well as saving you water in the long run;

7. Cleaning up debris. Last but not least, we will help you pick up debris, including anything from leaves and rocks to twigs and branches. This is important for the overall aspect of your yard, but also to assess any damage that winter left behind.
