It may still be frigid cold outside on most days, but already we’re beginning to see faint glimmers of the approaching spring. There are few things our local residents look forward to more than those beautiful spring mornings – our reward for having braved another long, harsh winter.
In Idaho Falls, spring lawn care is often looked at not as a chore but a fun and rewarding experience. That said, too many households and many businesses simply don’t have the time to invest in the task.

Dethatching Your Lawn
The first thing to do once the snow has melted is to take a look at your lawn and assess the damage. That is to say, look at how much garbage, dead plant matter, and debris has been matted down on your lawn under a heavy blanket of snow and ice all winter. You’ll likely notice it has accumulated more in some areas than in others. Unless this is cleared up, your lawn isn’t going to come back to life very consistently.
We can start by raking up your lawn so it can breathe again. We’ll bag up all of the unwanted piles of garbage and dead plant matter and haul it off for you.
When it comes to spring lawn care services, Idaho Falls residents usually need to have their lawns aerated. This involves poking various holes in your lawn to relieve the compacted soil. This allows oxygen and nutrients to flow through your lawn easier.
We pull up pockets of soil all throughout your lawn, which come up looking like little wine corks. We leave them on your lawn because they’ll disintegrate in time, which helps keep your lawn fertilized.
Pruning & Trimming
With our Idaho Falls pruning and trimming services we can remove any dead or damaged tree branches, which is something you’re likely to see after a long winter. We can also trim your plants and bushes so they have a fresh start for the new spring weather.
Maybe you’ve had a special project in mind for your lawn all winter and want to see it come to fruition. What better time to start than in the spring?
