Fall Clean Ups in Warsaw In & Syracuse IN

WLM Landscape Maintenance Crew

We are well under way on getting our clients fall clean up completed in Warsaw, Syracuse, Leesburg, Winona Lake, Culver, Columbia City, and Ft. Wayne. Fall Clean ups in Warsaw, IN should include not only cleaning up the landscape beds but trimming/pruning of the plant material in the landscaping. It’s also a good idea to edge the landscape beds to separate the lawn/turf from the landscape beds. Sometimes getting rid of the debris can cause homeowners a problem if you live in Warsaw or Syracuse so if you need some help, please give us a call at 574.268.2566 and we will be glad to help.

Some of the benefits of a fall clean up for your Warsaw landscape include reducing the size of plants if they have grown too large. Performing a fall clean up right now in Warsaw will make the work load smaller in the spring time.
