Changing leaves, cooler temperatures, warmer clothes—with fall right around the corner, it’s time to get your commercial landscape prepared for the season before you miss your chance.

If you’re unsure what that entails, it begins with fall cleanup services, which tend to your plants and lawn, so you can expect green grass and bright flowers come spring.

Find out more about maintaining your commercial landscaping with cleanup services and maintenance and why you should.


Fall is a good time to prune back trees and remove any dead or dying branches. A clean and beautiful landscape reflects well on your business and looks inviting.

Not all landscaping companies offer the same services. Make sure you find a company that provides pruning if you have any trees on your property.

Debris Removal

Autumn means falling leaves, which might be pretty but can make your property look unkempt. Plus, leaving a thick layer of leaves can smother your grass over the winter.

That said, chopped-up leaves actually work great as a natural fertilizer.

For large piles of leaves, ask your landscaping services company what the best course of action is and what they provide.

Landscaping companies can also check your drains to ensure that leaves and other debris haven’t gathered there. Any green waste stuck in grates or pipes can cause flooding once the snow melts.

Applying Fertilizers

Autumn is the best time to fertilize the lawn, as it strengthens the roots of your grass and plants, which helps them thrive in the spring.

A commercial landscaping company knows the right fertilizer formula to use for the type of grass you have, the type of year, and the needs of your lawn.

Additionally, fall is the time to fertilize perennials to ensure you have stronger, healthier flowers next spring.

Preventing Weeds

Nothing can ruin the image of your property quite like a ton of weeds. Not only does this make the lawn look unkempt, but weeds can contribute to seasonal allergies, which your employees or customers won’t appreciate.

Using pre-emergent will help protect your commercial landscaping from weeds. Pre-emergent weed control stops seeds from sprouting from unwanted plants.

A landscaping company can apply pre-emergents in fall and early spring to reduce unwanted weeds. It’s all part of fall lawn and landscape maintenance.

Updating Seasonal Flowers

If your commercial buildings have seasonal flowers, you might want them replaced for fall. Your flower beds also benefit from fall cleanup services. Landscapers can perform edging and cleanup to refresh those flower beds and prepare them for the winter.

Lawncare professionals can take a tired landscape and refresh it for the fall season.
