With the damage caused by Hurricane Isaias, many people are scrambling to get their landscapes back in functional condition. While storms may pass, they leave giant messes in their wake. It can be too much for someone to handle on their own. That’s why it’s often best to seek help from a landscaping company that is trained in the best methods for restoring your landscape. Here is what a landscaping company can do for you to help your landscape recover from damage caused by storms.
Inspect Your Trees
Storms have a tendency to weaken your trees, so it’s best for a landscaping company to take a look at your trees after the storm has passed. Trees pose a significant safety hazard to your property because of the potential branches that can fall. If they determine that your trees have problems, you can speak with your contractor to find out what the next step would be.
Pick Up Debris
Storms cause a huge mess around your outdoor landscape, so getting a landscaping company to clean up all of the dirt and debris is recommended. Leaves that have fallen off trees can be converted into compost for any plants you have. You can also use dry branches as firewood. This way, most of the debris that falls around your landscape can be put to good use.
Address Puddles That Developed On Your Lawn
Sometimes, storms can bring heavy rain with them, and water can accumulate more quickly than your lawn can absorb it. This is an indication of a water runoff problem. A landscaping company can help you handle puddles of water that have formed around your property.
Clean Up Your Branches
If your trees only drop small branches, you can often handle these with little trouble if they are within a ladder’s reach. For branches that are too high to reach, or are otherwise too large, the help of a landscaping company is often needed. With their help, you’ll have the tools needed to prevent future problems with pesky branches. If left unchecked, branches could dangle from high up in your trees and potentially fall on something later. They can also cause problems on the ground, for if you don’t detect them, you could cause damage to a lawnmower or tractor by running over branches with them.
