Spring Lawn Cleanup

Importance of Spring Cleanup service for healthy year-long lawns …

Spring Cleanup is an important and essential service that should be performed every year right after the snow has melted from the ground.

As the snow has melted off the ground your lawn has became compacted from the weight of the snow it carried all winter long. Alberta winters are long and thus is even more important to get your lawn a grooming and uplift service before warm weather of spring and summer stimulate new growth.

In addition to giving your lawn more breathing space, the spring cleanup and in particular power rake, will remove dead vegetation, decomposing debris, pests and other contaminants that have accumulated over the winter and have worked its way into the thatch (the insulating area between an active growth area of your lawn and root network just below the surface that is nurturing and providing nutrients to your lawn.
