Frequently Asked Questions
What’s included in a Spring Clean Up?
We offer two Spring Clean Up packages - Standard and Premium.
Each Spring Clean Up package includes:
- Power Raking - Your Yardly Pro will de-thatch your entire lawn, removing all of the accumulated debris and dead grass that prevents it from growing to its fullest potential.
- First Mowing & Trimming - The first mow of the season is crucial. Professional grass cutting of all turf surfaces to standard cutting height of 2.5" - 3" and grass trimming along all of the edges of the turf surfaces
- Leaf & debris clean up on turf - Loose leaves and debris will be cleaned up and bagged from the lawn area.
- Rockbed Blowout - Loose leaves and clippings will be blown off rock gardens or tree surrounds. Please note that this may not catch all the leaves in the rock bed. If you need detailed cleaning of the rock bed, a custom quote will apply.
- Clippings & Debris Bagging - Bagged clippings will be left near your property's waste pickup site for removal by your municipality.
- Core Aeration - Aerate your lawn so that it receives more of the sunlight, nutrients, and water it needs to grow thick and healthy during the summer. Aeration is completed using a plug aerator. Plugs will be left on the turf surface to decompose.
- Fertilization - Fertilization can help build stronger roots and blade, and strengthens the lawn against weed growth. Add a fertilization add-on to have a healthy green lawn all summer!
- Power Edging - Power edging is the mechanical removal of overgrown grass on concrete areas by a metal blade. It uniforms grass lines and give your lawn a professional and clean look around sidewalks and driveways.
