There are so many wonderful things about the fall season. The weather is cooler, football has resumed, and the holidays are just around the corner.
But we’d bet that one thing you don’t love about the fall is leaf clean up.
If you have trees on your property then leaf clean up is inevitable…but it’s certainly not enjoyable. In fact, cleaning up leaves can be back-breaking work. For that reason, you might be thinking about professional fall leaf clean up services.
You just don’t want to spend your free time dealing with leaves.
In this article, we’re talking about your options for fall leaf clean up services in North Texas so that you can decide if they’re right for you.
Before we get into additional details like the cost of fall leaf clean up and what it entails, let’s talk about why it’s so important. Yes, there’s a huge aesthetic factor involved. Your yard is going to look a lot better when all of those leaves are cleaned up.
But there’s more to it than that.
When not cleared in a timely manner, a thick or matted layer of fallen leaves can block sunlight from the lawn and actually begin to kill it.
A layer of fallen leaves can also become a “home” to unwanted pests who might try to seek shelter under them. This is particularly concerning around the foundation of your home, where these pests may try to make their way inside.
While we understand that it can be tempting to put off leaf clean up, these are some very good reasons why you don’t want to take that risk.
If you are thinking about hiring a professional fall leaf removal service in North Texas you might be wondering what’s included.
At Grassperson, we can actually customize these services to your wants and needs (and budget).
We could leave yard debris at your curb for the city to pick up. Or, we could blow leaves into piles, bag them up, and haul them away for you. We have a large number of Total Maintenance clients who do not want to see or deal with leaves at all.
We know that leaves can be a hassle and the Total Maintenance package is all about removing hassles and burdens from your plate.
With that in mind, we can also handle leaf removal from gutters. Unfortunately, if you have a property with many trees, you might find that your leaves aren’t only ending up on the lawn, but also in gutters.
Clearing leaf build-up out of gutters is important as it can cause serious water woes when water has nowhere to go but over the edge. In fact, this can actually cause foundational or siding damage.
The truth is, getting up on a ladder or on your roof is dangerous, so this really is a service best left to the pros. At Grassperson, we do a lot of safety training on ladder use since our crews also frequently climb them for holiday lighting.
Since we customize our fall leaf clean up services we charge by the hour (and have a one hour minimum). We provide these fall clean up services in and around Flower Mound and Highland Village, TX.
Just to give you an idea, the cost of fall leaf clean up for an average-sized yard (3,000 to 5,000 square feet) is going to likely start around $200.
It typically takes a crew of 3 people about an hour to complete the work for a yard of that size.
For fall leaf removal service (where we actually haul-off the debris), it starts around $45 for an average-sized yard.
While fall leaf clean up is undoubtedly an important fall maintenance service, at the end of the day, it’s one of many.
In reality, there are a number of essential fall clean up tasks that should be completed if you want to keep your property looking its best.
We find that many homeowners really want to have a great-looking property but they don’t have the time (or maybe energy) to invest in all of the work involved in achieving the best results. Frankly, it’s a lot of work and chances are, you’re pretty busy.
You have a lot of other ways that you could be spending your free time.
That’s why you can leave not only your leaf clean up, but ALL of your fall maintenance services to the pros, and spend your time in a better way.
If you truly want the best-looking property on the block, then you can make a number of fall clean up services part of your Total Maintenance Package. We can completely customize it to you and your property’s needs.
