A landscaping company in Fayetteville NC can help with fall maintenance.
Taking care of your lawn and garden in the fall is essential. Maintenance done now will help keep your yard healthy year round. There are several things that need to be done during the fall and a landscaping company in Fayetteville NC can help.
Lawn mower maintenance: It is important to maintain your lawn mower to keep it in good working condition. At the end of fall, get your lawn mower ready for winter by emptying the gas tank, draining oil, cleaning the undercarriage, changing the air filter and sharpening the blade. Before performing any maintenance be sure to unplug the spark plug to prevent the mower from starting accidentally.
Composting: Fall is a great time to start compost that will be ready to use in the spring and summer. Good compost requires nitrogen (kitchen scraps), carbon (yard waste), oxygen and water. Compost is beneficial in potting soil, mulch, base soil for vegetable gardens and more. You can build your own compost bin or purchase one. Compost can include leaves, eggshells, coffee grounds, grass clippings, fruit scraps and vegetable scraps. A landscaping company in Fayetteville NC can answer any question you have about composting.
Grass repair: Fall is the best time to repair summer damage to your lawn. A landscaping company in Fayetteville NC can repair any damage and fertilize your lawn. Taking care of the lawn in fall guarantees healthy and beautiful grass come spring.
Leaf removal: Many homeowners rake their leaves, but this is the most labor-intensive method. If you have to rake, make sure you’re careful not to over exert yourself and hurt your back. Blowing your leaves with a leaf blower can be an easier option. Blow your leaves from your yard and garden into a large pile on a tarp. You can then move the tarp roadside for pickup. Another is to mulch your leaves. Mow your yard, but keep chopped leaves on the grass for fertilizer or use the leaves in compost for the spring.
Sprinkler repair and maintenance: Having maintenance done on your sprinkler system in the fall guarantees that it’s ready to use come spring. A landscaping company in Fayetteville NC can service your sprinkler system and make any repairs. Some common issues are broken valves, broken sprinkler heads, clogged nozzles, broken pipes and malfunctioning control units.
