    The reason I ask...
    I have a few people that have requested them this year and everybody has a different idea as to what it is. I do alot of "Fall clean-ups"...not so much in the spring.

    This is something only the perspective client can answer. It's usually the same in the fall....leaves blown out of bed and collect off the lawn.

    It's just a general cleanup. Get all of the leaves, cut down any ornamental grasses, pick up any deadfall from the trees. Just make the property ready for mulching and or lawn mowing.

    My spring clean-ups consist of cleaning out all the beds, thatching the lawn and giving it the first cut and follow up with aeration and overseed. I also suggest adding edging and mulching.

    My spring clean-ups consists of picking up any remaining leaves that fell or blew around during the winter and picking up twigs and branches that fell on the yard. Basically just getting the property ready for mowing.

    Here is my ideas...
    - pick up sticks etc.
    -blow out all beds etc.
    -de-thatch whole yard.
    -suck everything up with your mower.
    -edge beds,sidewalks,curbs etc.
    -mulch

    Same as above but we also include power brooming at least first 12 feet of road frontage to remove road sand.

    Blow the leaves from the beds, and vacum the lawn. THATS IT. Mulch and trimming is separate

    Same as a fall cleanup. Blow out the beds and fencelines. Bag it all up. Get it ready to be cut in a couple weeks.
