Debris Removal And Lawn De-Thatching

It's amazing how much debris can accumulate on the surface of your grounds over the autumn and winter. Spring can be the ideal time to remove this build-up from your lawns, and also offer an opportunity for de-thatching. Dethatching doesn't only lead to healthier root growth, but it can nourish your lawn, giving the soil air and water, and improving its overall look.

Fertilise/Spray Weed Control On Lawns

Weed control is important for your lawns, and the best garden and grounds maintenance services can perform this vital task, as well as run tests on your soil if necessary. Weeds can kill grass if they are left to spread; they require immediate removal and your lawn needs to be treated regularly.

Apply Fresh Mulch To Beds

Mulching is a spring must! This is a process which offers so many benefits. It reduces weed growth, and it can also cut water loss from the surface of the soil, and moderate the soil's temperature, keeping it cooler on hot days and warmer on cool nights. Then there is the soil protection it offers, which reduces soil compaction and erosion.

Plant Summer Annuals For Increased Colour

There is nothing like a garden in full bloom come the summer, but in order for your grounds and gardens to be looking at their best during the fairest month, it is important that your contractor does the planting at the right time. This is a task which can really pay dividends when your garden comes to life.

Prune Dead Parts Of Shrubbery And Trees

Pruning shrubbery and trees' dead and dying parts allows more room for new growth. It also serves the function of protecting passers-by from potential health and safety incidents, while ensuring dead branches do not fall and damage your property. This is a task which can also deter pests, and promote the natural growth of trees and plants.
