Seasonal yard cleanups and overgrown property cleanups in Happy Valley, Troutdale, and Gresham, OR areas.
Seasonal (spring and fall) yard cleanups are a necessary part of ensuring the health and growth of your lawn and landscaping throughout the year. Here in the Portland area, when the seasons change, there are specific tasks that need to be done on your property.
Besides spring and fall yard cleanups, we also offer cleanup services for overgrown and distressed properties in Happy Valley, Troutdale, and Gresham areas.
What’s included in a yard cleanup?
At J&C Lawn Care, part of our yard cleanups include your basic mowing and maintenance. Spring cleanups start your mowing season, while fall cleanups end your mowing season, so we perform all our usual routine maintenance for your lawn at that time.
For both spring and fall, there are a number of areas your yard needs some extra TLC. Our professional landscapers tend your property to make sure everything is properly handled including leaf removal, reshaping of landscaping beds, trimming of plants, weeding of landscaping beds, laying fresh bark dust, applying a pre-emergent that will keep weeds away for up to six months, and debris is picked up and removed. Depending on the season, we may also recommend some additional services.
Yard cleanups are a bunch of lawn and landscape services put together, such as mowing, trimming, weeding, mulching, and more!
Spring Focused Yard Cleanups
During springtime, our team focuses on getting your grass ready for the growing season. We recommend that you begin with our lawn fertilization treatment package, the first treatment of slow-release fertilizer will be applied in early spring and the start of the mowing season will begin. In addition, spring is the perfect time to get that landscaping looking its best! We’ll handle trimming/pruning your non-flowering shrubs, but we also recommend laying fresh bark dust with an application of pre-emergent to help control the weeds throughout the summer.
When considering mulch, many homeowners in our area choose Medium Hemlock or Cedar Mulch, but various Bark Dust and Fir Nuggets/Pebbles are also a popular choice.
Fall Focused Cleanups
The most important part of your fall cleanup service is leaf removal. Allowing leaves to remain on your lawn throughout the cold months will have a number of consequences to your property, including:
- Leaves prevent your grass from going through photosynthesis properly, which results in lawn suffocation.
- Leaves reduce water evaporation, which leads to mold, fungus, and disease.
- Leaves repeatedly left on the lawn can completely kill your grass over time.
- Wet leaves are a breeding ground for pests like mosquitoes.
At J&C Lawn Care, we rid your property of leaves by blowing them into piles and using tarps and bins to manually remove them. For smaller yards, we do some raking as needed.
