When the season changes, particularly in spring and fall, many of us begin planning out our seasonal cleaning sprees for the inside of our home. Much like the inside, the outside of our home needs seasonal cleanup too. Seasonal yard cleanups are a vital part of taking care of the look of our property and maintaining its good health.
Seasonal yard cleanups are important for allowing new growth, ridding your yard of weeds, and decreases the number of potential health risks in your yard. Here are some reasons why your yard needs a seasonal cleanup in Happy Valley, Troutdale, Gresham, and the surrounding areas.
When winter rolls around, your lawn can sustain some pretty harsh damage due to the cold and snow. A lawn that has not been properly cleaned up by our experts is already in a weakened state throughout the fall, and when winter hits it can devastate your lawn.

Removing the leaves from your yard before your turfgrass reaches its dormancy period allows it time to soak up extra nutrients before the winter. Without these nutrients to help rejuvenate your cool season grasses, you could be looking at a damaged turf come springtime!
If leaves are covering more than 10-20% of your lawn, there is a greater risk of damage to your grass from disease or lack of nutrients.
Hire a professional landscaping company like J&C Lawn Care to come and remove all the leaves from your property. We use rakes and blowers to remove leaves by collecting them on a giant tarp and hauling them away.
Another option for yards that do not have a leaf covering that is too thick, is to use a lawn mower or a mulching mower to break them up over the ground. Breaking the leaves up into tiny pieces ...
