Apples are ripening, the neighborhood kids are charting out paths to the houses with the best loot, and the leaves are piling up on your lawn. No doubt about it, autumn is here, and with it your appointment with Algiere’s for a fall clean up!

It’s important to get those leaves up and off your grass. The shading caused by leaf litter can potentially damage and even kill your turf grass. Those leaves can do a lot more good in your compost heap, stuffed in your favorite flannel shirt to make a spooky scarecrow, or glued to some poster board as a school project with the kiddos.

And fall clean up isn’t just about raking leaves. A slow release fertilizer will give your plants the extra nutrients to make it through the long winter. Getting rid of weeds and other invasive plants now will slow them down when they try to make a comeback in the spring. Trimming back your bushes, relining your planting beds, and getting those spring bulbs planted now will mean a lot less hassle when the snow begins to melt.

Let Algiere’s  help you with your fall clean up. We offer the convenience of offsite disposal of your leaf litter to save you time and money. Call us up for an appointment today, so you can get back to all those Halloween parties and apple picking trips waiting for you this October and November.
