Spring & Fall Cleanup

Spring and Fall Clean-Ups

Leaf Vacuum Services Available.

De-thatching a lawn helps bring the lawn alive by removing old, dead debris, cutting old stolons and rhizomes. I would recommend doing this in the spring. Some benefits to de-thatching are: Helps stimulate root growth Removes barrier so fertilizer and water can reach roots Helps protect your lawn against disease. A Spring clean-up consists of de-thatching and complete clean-up of leaves and debris from lawn and landscape. April is Spring cleanup time, usually starting late in the first week of April and running three or so weeks: depending on the weather. We will run with an extended crew if necessary to complete all Spring cleanups on a timely basis. Overseeding is also recommended at this time.

Generally a cleanup starts with blowing out landscaped areas and then:

  1. Dethatching
  2. Blowing Areas
  3. Loading and disposing into the trailer for hauling

Fire Pits

Fire pits offer an excellent alternative to outdoor fireplaces and may better suit your landscaping needs. A fire pit is often the focal point of a social gathering of friends and family. Fire pits can be designed and custom built us in a variety of shapes and sizes to fit your tastes, space, and backyard landscape needs. Fire pits are often used as accents in a well designed landscape and can be custom built using a selection of styles and materials, including natural stone, pre-cast concrete, slate, bluestone, brick, and stacked stone.

Water Features

Running water has a soothing and calming effect and helps to drown out other background noises such as traffic or neighbors. You can create your own quiet corner, a relaxing and peaceful place to getaway and enjoy the sights and sounds of water. Water gardens can be created in a variety of designs from koi ponds to elegant water falls.

A water garden adds sophistication and value to your property. In addition to increasing your property value and making your property more appealing, water gardens and water features provide habitat for wildlife. Birds, bees, butterflies and other critters will enjoy a refreshing water source.

Other water features include landscape ponds such as Koi ponds, water falls, fountains, and landscape streams. If you have an existing pond, stream or other natural water feature on your property we can improve its beauty and function.

Poison Ivy & Poison Oak

Poison Ivy Removal

Poison Ivy (above) and Poison Oak (below) are most easily removed early in the season before growth begins. Landscaping With Hart can identify and eliminate these irritating plants before they sprout identifying leaves.

Poison Oak Removal

Later in the season, removal of these plants is more difficult when rash-inducing oils are "ripe". Both Poison Ivy and Poison Oak tend to grow among and around rocks, trees and other protective structures, adding to the difficulty of removal.

Weed-whacking these plants explode the oils into a fine mist that can penetrate to any skin covered by loose-fitting clothing and garden gloves. Call Landscaping With Hart to eradicate these nuisances before they come into contact with family or guests, especially children.
