In Need of Landscape Cleanup & Maintenance Services? Book Before Calendars Fill

As the winter weather begins to thaw, spring is approaching. And while spring may be the time for cleaning your house, the tail end of winter is the best time to book landscape cleanup and maintenance services.

Winter leaves behind debris and will typically leave your landscaping and lawn looking a bit ragged. Not only that, but there’s quite a bit of preparation that must be completed to ensure any spring plantings or perennial flowers thrive this upcoming season.

At Allentuck Landscaping Company, our team provides a full range of landscape maintenance and cleanup services, and March tends to be the busiest time of year to book. Here’s why you should schedule your landscape maintenance and cleanup right away to ensure your home looks beautiful all year.

Clean Up Winter Debris

Fall is typically seen as the major time of year for cleanups, as leaves, sticks, and other dead vegetation accumulate in your yard and flowerbeds. However, the late winter and early spring are also a major cleanup time. 

Winter is a harsh time of year for trees, shrubs, and other aspects of your landscaping. Snowmelt and cycles of freezing and thawing may cause dirt and debris to cover your patio, and there will surely be plenty of leaves left over from last year. (If not yours, then your neighbor’s!)

Scheduling a cleanup ensures you start the year with a blank slate, and we find this often helps homeowners identify what new landscape installations they may want to consider this year. Not only that, but it keeps walkways, patios, and other hardscape features looking pristine.

Get Your Yard and Landscaping Ready for Spring

As we near the growing season, now is the perfect time to complete all the seasonal landscaping tasks needed to prepare your lawn and landscaping for a thriving year. Spring is a critical growing time, and making sure your soil and plants are nurtured is the key to enjoying a vibrant show of flowers and greenery as the weather warms up.

Key maintenance tasks include soil testing to ensure your plants have the right nutrients; lawn fertilization to achieve a green and pristine lawn; mulching to keep weeds at bay and perennials protected; and much more. 

Taking care of these key landscape maintenance services now will give you a great jumpstart to the year.

Calendars Are Filling Up!

Of course, since late February through March is the best time to complete most key landscape maintenance and cleanup tasks, it’s also an especially popular time to book. At Allentuck, our calendar has been filling up as homeowners see the snow melt away and find their yards looking lackluster following the winter.

That said, many more homeowners won’t realize the need for prompt maintenance until later, when it’s even tougher to find a spot in the schedule due to the added season of spring plantings. By booking now, you’ll ensure your chance to get a spot in our calendar—and your landscaping will be well prepared to look its best and healthiest in the seasons ahead.

At Allentuck Landscaping Company, our mission is “Improving Lives Through Landscaping.” That means helping homeowners beautify their homes—and making that process as simple and easy as possible.

It can be a headache remembering when to schedule all the cleanups and maintenance tasks needed to ensure your landscaping looks its best year-round. And if you decide to tackle these tasks yourself, you’ll spend more time working on your garden than sitting back and enjoying it. 

That’s why we provide two complete landscape maintenance programs to remove the guesswork and difficulties of scheduling: TotalScapes or GardenScapes. With these programs, your lawn and gardens will get the care they need, and you’ll never have to worry about finding a spot in our calendar.
