Spring Clean Up Rochester MI

Spring Clean Up – Rochester Hills MI


  • Remove any left over fall debris such as fallen limbs and leaves.
  • If any areas of your lawn have been damaged from the winter, prepare these spots for Spring seeding.
  • Begin your fertilization treatment. (Having your lawns ph levels tested first is a great way to know what your lawn is in need of before you begin adding things to it that may be necessary or may cause damage).


  • Remove any protective covering from trees and shrubs as the weather begins to warm.
  • Prune away any damaged branches to allow for new growth.


  • Clean out any left over fall debris such as leaves and fallen limbs.
  • Cut back perennials as needed and pull up any annuals that are left over from the fall.
  • If you notice bare spots in certain areas, now is a great time to transplanting to fill those in. Try to do transplanting as soon as possible after the plant emerges. Plants will recover much more quickly when started early and the weather is still mild.
  • Begin your fertilization, starting now will help strengthen roots and they begin to grow.
  • Mulch & Edge gardens. Fresh mulch adds a much needed protective layer to your garden and also offers a variety of benefits.
  • Edging is the finishing touch and will give your gardens a clean and polished look.
