Spring Clean up

Spring Clean Up


What is a Spring Cleanup & Why Does my Lawn Need it?

Spring Cleanups can be easily overlooked. They save you from future unwanted costs, improve the health of your lawn, and even prevent weeds. Here at Unicutters we add two bonus services: Power Edging and Power Vacuuming. We believe that both really add something special without raising the costs of the service substantially which is why we include them by default. As with all of our services, any customizations can be requested.


The Ultimate Spring Cleanup Package:

A spring cleanup is crucial to setting the path for the overall health of your lawn throughout the season.


If your not sure what your lawn needs, this is not a problem. Check out:

Benefits of Deep Core Aeration

Simply put, it’s pulling nickle sized diameter, 2-3 inch plugs out of the turf. These plugs will contain turf, thatch, and soil. Although, it may look funny for a bit, these plugs will biologically decompose back into the ground to provide more nutrients to make your lawn thick and lush! But that’s not the only benefit! Aeration should be done twice a year (spring and fall) and is a fantastic way of getting nutrients to the lawn faster. Click “Deep Core Aeration” above for more information.

  • Better gas exchange between soil and atmosphere
  • healthier and more effective hydration
  • Greater access to the air, nutrients and water improves the overall health of the lawn! keeping you and your lawn happy!
  • improved resistance to diseases and pests due to a healthier root system
  • Relieves soil compaction. Essentially, by removing the cores, it makes more room, in turn decreasing the soil density making it easier for roots to grow, water to be absorbed and organics to be decomposed and absorbed.
  • Benefits Over-Seeding applications. It is beneficial to aerate before over-seeding. Pulling plugs, allows the seed-to-soil contact to be greater, in turn increasing germination rates, and creating a moist, protected environment for the optimal growth and development of seedlings.


Benefits of Power Raking


Power raking is a lot like it sounds. Most people believe raking to be important for just getting leaves off the grass. But, the part that is commonly missed is that raking is important to get out all the dead (detached) grass & thatch in order to make room for new grass growth. The reason this is included in spring cleanups is because thatch build up is a common problem for us since we live in a winter wonderland for half the year. Learn more by clicking “Power Raking” above.


The Benefits of a Power Vacuum

A service that is commonly not included in Spring Cleanups or any other company’s services is Power Vacuuming the entire lawn area. We do this mainly to pick up after the Power rake which pulls up bags of thatch from the ground. However, it also brings with it a few other benefits including: 
  1. It cleans up debris from the lawn area including leaves, dead compacted grass (thatch), acorns, pine and all sorts of unwanted material.
  2. Allergies: Thatch has a tendency to hold on to tons of allergens like dust, organic matter, and mold. By power raking we are able to pull out these debris. Here at Unicutters we also include a power vacuum which further cleans all the dead matter, and debris helping alleviate allergy sufferers while also really kickstarting your lawn for the season. 

  3.  Soil Exposure: By using a high powered vacuum we are able to suction so much more debris then with the mower alone allowing for more soil exposure. We then pair this with a mow to giving stunning results. This allows for new grass to grow by itself, and increase grass seed germination when over-seeding increasing the rate germination and success.


The Benefits of Power Edging

Power edging is another service that is sometimes not included in spring cleanup packages which is a shame. More often then not,  it does not take much time to complete therefore the costs are marginal just like power vaccing in comparison to the results. Power edging is the process of cutting off overgrown turf that has begun growing overtop of sidewalks & driveways. The end result leaves a beautiful clean polished finish to your lawn that really separates yours, from other homes.
