Fall gently drifts down to us here in the Champlain Valley–the days get shorter, the nights get cooler, the mornings get foggy, and we begin to see a blaze of color, first slowly then surely creep down the mountains and brighten our short sunny afternoons with hues of red, orange, and yellow. One last hurrah before the cold grayness of winter sets in from November till April.
Now is the time to make preparations for fall clean-up service for your property. Your weekend time should be spent out enjoying the last sunny days of autumn not laboring over a leaf rake and a tarp trying to win the war against the fall foliage. At S & D Landscapes we are well equipped to efficiently remove leaves from your lawn and landscape. We have a collection of leaf blowers, bagging systems, leaf plows, and a truck loader that can make very swift work of the largest volumes of leaves. Leaf removal is included in our seasonal maintenance programs and we schedule several visits for each property depending on the tree/leaf cover anticipated on the property. We do have some slots for clients who would just have us do a fall clean-up, but we give first priority to our regular seasonal contracts and we would be happy to sign you up for 2015 landscape maintenance services and we can include the remainder of 2014 services including fall clean-up.
Our fall clean-up services include blowing/removing all leaves from the landscape beds and the lawn areas. We also remove leaves from driveways, decks, walkways, and patios. The property is left spotlessly clean for every fall clean-up visit on the off chance that snow will cut our season short. Heavy leaf debris on lawns can cause some smothering damage and later spring green up if left untended. Leaf litter makes a great mulch for perennials but only hinders clean-up efforts in the spring. We encourage regular mulching so that leaves can be removed from the planting beds in the fall. We cut back all perennials except perennial grasses and remove all the spent tops. The lawns will be mowed as needed and the final cut will be between 2.5″ and 3″. We have a truckloader and can swiftly remove our piles from the curblines. If accessible and appropriate we can also blow leaves into woods areas as well. All of our leaves are composted and recycled back into landscaping and gardening projects.
Don’t let leaves be a hassle this fall–let S & D Landscapes be your one stop landscape maintenance solution–including fall clean-up. After leaf clean-up comes winter……and we switch from leaf blowing to snowblowing.
