Spring and Fall Clean Up

Spring and Fall Clean Up

No one can stop the season from changing. No one can ever control how this change can affect the entire outdoors. But there's something that can be done to manage any change in the landscape. After the winter, spring clean-up services help prepare the soil for the hot summer ahead. After summer ends, fall clean-up services prepare the landscaping for the chilly winter. While these projects are necessary for proper landscape maintenance, they can be a lot of hassle to do on your own. With Dean's Pools & Landscaping in Indiana, there's no need to take on the exhausting chore only to end up devastated with the final result! Schedule our local landscapers for your spring and fall clean-up needs!

At first, it may seem that spring and fall clean-up are just the same. They have similar goals, but with different specific needs. And that's because the two clean-ups happen before and after different seasons. Spring clean-up is cleaning the winter aftermath while preparing for summer.

It's easy to miss the significant mess on the landscape when it's completely covered with snow. Once the snow melts, you'll be able to properly see what the winter has left behind. Leaves, garbage, twigs, weeds, and every little bit of unsightly debris have to be removed — and it takes more than just raking to do the job. It takes careful and precise spring clean-up.

Sometimes, leaving a little natural "waste" is a good idea. They will turn into natural fertilizers for the soil. But don't just leave everything as a left-over. Fertilize the soil for real. Better yet, have a total spring preparation for the entire landscape. Spring is the best time to grow new flowers or nurture edible plants. It is also the perfect season to reshape topiaries. Plant beds have to be fixed also so that your outdoors will be ready to impress all through the next seasons.


Fall is the time when green leaves turn yellow, orange, red, and brown. It's the time when the lawn can get completely covered by fallen leaves. Although kids love to jump in a pile of leaves, these leaves can become a big nuisance for adults. Don't feel so sour about fall clean-up, though. Rake the leaves and turn them into compost. Sure, winter still has to come before spring. But by the time spring comes, your compost will be ready to give the soil its R & R!

But a more important step for fall clean-up is preparing all the living things outdoors for the winter. Some plants can take care of themselves during the colder months. But some plants and species, like fish in the pond or plants that aren't native to the area, have to be kept safe from the winter weather.


Fall and spring clean-up is much more complicated than just raking and winterizing.
