Don’t forget to clean your gutters

Fall has arrived in the North Georgia mountains! This means the leaves will begin piling up in your yard and in your gutters! Clogged gutters can cause major problems for your home if left untreated! Some of these problems are:

•Water can overflow onto wood surfaces which will eventually lead to rot and can also cause puddling around the foundation which can lead to damp or leaky basements.
•Water can back up into the walls or be rerouted and come in through the roof which can lead to very expensive repair costs.
•Standing water in your gutters can become a breeding ground for mosquitoes.
•In the winter time when temperatures drop water can freeze into heavy blocks of ice which can cause your gutters to pull away from your home.

Remember there is only a short window between when the leaves start to fall and freezing temperatures so be sure to schedule your next gutter cleaning service ASAP so that you can keep your home looking beautiful and avoid unnecessary repair costs!

Time to beautify your yard!

Winter is over and it’s time to renew and rejuvenate and your yard is no exception. Here are some helpful ideas to make sure your yard is going to be picture perfect this spring:

Lawn care: Your yard might me looking kind of dead after the past few months but with a little work you can bring it back to life. If you can see any thatch (this looks like dead straw like grass) you will need to rake it out before you start any lawn care projects. The reason being is that any thing you add such as new seed or fertilizer will simply sit on the thatch and won’t be able to get down into the soil unless it is removed. Once it’s removed from your lawn you can add your fertilizer application. Fertilizer helps your lawn to green up and recover from winter stress. Weed control and crabgrass preventative should also be applied during this step if you are not attempting to grow new grass.

Planting- April and May are great times to plant those new flowers, shrubs, fruit trees, and evergreens. If you’re unsure what to plant you can always contact us. Complete Home Services can help you design and help you plan your landscaping project.

Pruning- If you still need to prune your trees and shrubs it’s best to do this is before growth starts in the spring. The only exception to that rule are spring flowering shrubs. For those you will need to wait until after they finish flowering (mid season May-July) in order to prune them.

Adding color-  Spring is a great time to plant so take a look around your landscape and decide if you can brighten the place up with a few new plants. Did you know that by selecting a few specimens that have interesting color or texture in their foliage you will have a more lasting visual effect in your landscape? We can help you with updating your landscape and we will even put together a free quote once we determine the amount of sunlight affecting that part of your landscape and what type of shrub, tree or flowers would give you the best bang for your buck.

Complete Home Services is happy to assist you with any questions you may have regarding lawn services or to give you a free quote as our goal is to keep your landscape healthy and beautiful for spring.
