What is a spring yard cleanup?

Mar 10, 2021 | Landscaping, Residential


s the weather is getting warmer, it is becoming more and more important for your property to look nice and clean and be well prepared for the growing season. People want to spend more time outdoors and can enjoy the sunshine in their beautiful backyards.

With a four-season climate in Canada, outdoor spaces greatly benefit from a comprehensive spring cleaning. The harsh winter snow mixed with salt and debris accumulated on your lawn from plowing can leave your property looking very unhealthy and can hinder your turf and flower beds, over the summer months.

Why Should you perform a spring yard cleanup?

 As mentioned above, the winter weather can have a drastic impact on your lawn and landscaped area’s health.  A good spring cleanup is performed prior to the high growth season of your lawn, late in the month of April or early in May.

First of all, you need to think about what needs to be cleaned up. There may be leaves leftover from the fall on the ground. If you live in areas with heavier snowfall and ice rains, you might be experiencing more broken branches on the ground. Those need to be collected, bundled up, and discarded. Moving forward, you need to think about what needs to be done in order for your yard to be green and healthy in the upcoming months.

With all the planning, equipment, and techniques it requires, this might sound daunting to you. But you don’t need to worry as we have got you covered at EDPS. Our spring cleanup list consists of a wide range of services including but not limited to:
