Blow out

Clear all the fallen leaves, branches and debris from your flower beds, shrubs, and lawn.

Power rake

Remove excess thatch and refresh your lawn after a long winter under the snow.

First mow & trim

Healthy grass is frequently cut grass! Removing too much of the blade at once causes stress, and this first mow keeps it in check.

Aerate & fertilize

Aerate to support the deep root system of your lawn, and encourage healthy roots. Add a sprinkling of fertilizer for a jump start on the new growing season.

Tidy & dispose

One more blast with the blower to shake off all the dust. Gather up all the debris and bag it for removal by the city, or we can remove and compost it for you.

Spring Yard Cleaning Service FAQ

When will you do my spring cleaning?
We do our yard clean ups in the order they are booked! We aim to have your service completed within 3-5 business days of you making your booking. We'll notify you a day or two before we arrive and you'll receive a picture notification when we're done.
Why should I aerate the lawn?
Over time, and with lots of use, the soil beneath your lawn becomes compacted, making it more difficult for the grass to access sufficient nutrients and water. Aeration reintroduces more oxygen into the deep root system of your lawn. Deep roots make your lawn more resilient and better able to handle stress, like heat or dry spells. The small holes also create more surface area for healthy soil microorganisms and fertilizer to do their work.
Do I need to aerate the lawn?
If you are not sure you need aeration, take a core sample of your lawn at least six inches deep. If grass roots extend only to the first one-two inches, your soil may be compacted.
When should I aerate the lawn in CALGARY?
In Alberta, the best time to aerate is in May to June and again in mid-September. The cores of soil are best left on the lawn so they can be reabsorbed. Booking our spring and fall yard cleaning services will keep you on schedule!
What is power raking?
Power raking removes thatch, a dense mat of stems and roots, which accumulates under the surface of your lawn. A little thatch is good for lawns, but too much will start to prevent water, air and nutrients from reaching the soil beneath.
What's wrong with thatch?
Too much thatch makes your lawn less permeable to the good things you want it to absorb, like fertilizer and water. Thatch also reduces the effectiveness of pest controls, and since it holds onto moisture, it can create an environment for bacteria and bugs to thrive. If it becomes more than ½ thick, the roots of your lawn will start to grow in the thatch instead of the soil, making it less resilient.
When should you power rake in CALGARY?
In our climate, for the type of grass that typically is grown here it’s best to power rake in the spring. Power raking when the grass is already growing can cause damage, so it’s best to do before the growing season begins, usually up until the start of May.
How often should you power rake the lawn?
For a regular residential lawn in Calgary, once a year is a good habit as it’s a more intense procedure for your lawn. Some golf courses power rake multiple times per year!
What are the benefits of power raking?
Better absorption of all the good things your lawn needs to thrive - water, air, and fertilizer! If you’re thinking about overseeding your lawn, power raking sets you up for better success by allowing the seeds access to the nutrient layer they need.
What is the cost of a spring yard clean up?
Our price begins at $138 for spring clean ups, compared to other companies who begin at $160+. As always, your final price is determined by your aeration, fertilizer and composting preferences.
When does cleanup season start or end?
Spring clean-up season starts as soon as all the snow has melted, usually in early to mid April and runs until the end of May.
