As we move deeper into fall, a comprehensive yard review and clean-up by our experts will ensure a healthy, safe winter for your plantings and a strong revival of your landscape come spring. Your lawn will be trimmed and edged, resulting in a crisp, clean appearance as the growing season winds down. Special attention will be given to clearing out any leaves, dead flowers or vegetables, or other debris from planting beds. Leaving these materials behind creates the perfect environment for critters to move in and diseases to take hold, damaging shrubs and perennials as they winter in the harsh months ahead. One of the most effective strategies to combat these stresses is adding a new layer of mulch, and the professionals at Gerbert & Sons will determine the most appropriate option for your planting beds. When installed at the correct depth, mulch performs a variety of beneficial functions, in addition to being an aesthetically pleasing finishing touch to your property. It helps prevent weed growth and promotes nutrition in the soil, but most importantly, a properly installed layer of mulch insulates the ground around your plants, shrubs, and trees, providing a consistent temperature for their root systems as the temperature begins to drop.
