Leaf Removal

Autumn has arrived and as the beautiful fall colors of autumn foliage begins to fall, it is time to begin the process of removing leaves from your yard. Some wonder if there is actually a legitimate reason for all the work involved with removing leaves, or is it simply for aesthetics? Well, leaf removal goes far beyond the curb appeal of your property. Removing fallen leaves is an essential part of landscape maintenance and maintaining a healthy lawn.

The Importance Of Leaf Removal
Leaf removal is an essential aspect of maintaining a healthy lawn.

When your lawn becomes buried in layers of leaves, it becomes smothered and is deprived of water, air and nutrients it needs to survive. Without proper leaf removal your lawn will also become a breeding ground for fungi, disease and insects. Additionally, when leaves shade the grass they prevent it from receiving the sunlight it needs to thrive. Sunlight is a necessity for cool-season grasses such as Kentucky bluegrass since their prime growing season is during the cooler months. During the fall your lawn absorbs sunlight to store as energy in its roots. While a few scattered leaves on the lawn won’t do much harm, a heavy thick layer will. Leaves left in place over the winter often become compacted and cause extensive damage to your lawn which can lead to increased costs and maintenance in the Spring. Want to leave the fall clean-up work load for someone else? Berns Landscaping Services offers both leaf removal and fall clean-up services. These services help ensure your landscape is clear of debris and fallen leaves are removed, preventing mold and fungus from growing.

While this long cold winter continues to drag on, one thing is certain sunny and warm Spring days are on there way. Spring is a time of growth and renewal, spring bulbs will soon start popping up and tree’s will begin to bud.  However, before we can reach the growth and renewal phase we have to address the repair phase. The harsh elements of winter can leave behind a whirlwind of problems – broken limbs on shrubs and trees, sparse mulch, misplaced bricks from walks and walls, moldy leave piles, squashed grass and lots of debris. It is essential to address these problems before our landscape and gardens can shine this spring. Below are some of our favorite spring clean up tips.

SPRING CLEAN UP TIPS

LAWN
  • Remove any left over fall debris such as fallen limbs and leaves.
  • If any areas of your lawn have been damaged from the winter, prepare these spots for Spring seeding.
  • Begin your fertilization treatment. (Having your lawns ph levels tested first is a great way to know what your lawn is in need of before you begin adding things to it that may be necessary or may cause damage).
TREE & SHRUB
  • Remove any protective covering from trees and shrubs as the weather begins to warm.
  • Prune away any damaged branches to allow for new growth.
GARDEN
  • Clean out any left over fall debris such as leaves and fallen limbs.
  • Cut back perennials as needed and pull up any annuals that are left over from the fall.
  • If you notice bare spots in certain areas, now is a great time to transplanting to fill those in. Try to do transplanting as soon as possible after the plant emerges. Plants will recover much more quickly when started early and the weather is still mild.
  • Being your fertilization, starting now will help strengthen roots and they begin to grow.
  • Mulch & Edge gardens. Fresh mulch adds a much needed protective layer to your garden and also offers a variety of benefits. Edging is the finishing touch and will give your gardens a clean and polished look.

 

Top dressing is a process of applying compost, soil and sand over the surface of your lawn. It has been preformed on golf courses since the sport was invented in Scotland, but has only recently become popular on home lawns. For the best results on residential lawns, a top dressing should have a higher content of compost.

Good Soil is living soil. One tablespoon of soil can contain billions of microorganisms. This practice is a way of restoring the balance to home lawns, building good soil and increasing soil flora.

Benefits Of Top Dressing

  • Significantly increases soil water retention.
  • Adds organic matter to soils.
  • Compost top dressings with the right biological components can help reduce lawn diseases.
  • Adding compost helps reduce traffic stress.
  • Compost incorporated into sandy soils helps with water retention.
  • Can help reduce thatch.
  • Neutralizes soil’s pH.
  • With core aeration, it helps change soil structure.
