Seasonal Cleaning

We’ve all heard of Spring cleaning. It’s the time of year, after things are stored and accumulated in the winter as they tend to be, when people are most motivated to clean things up. It makes sense that the biggest yearly cleansing ritual takes place in the Spring. Although the calendar year begins in January, it doesn’t always feel like a new beginning because it’s the middle of winter. Temperatures start to rise, nature begins to change and come alive again in the Spring and it feels more like a new beginning.

While Spring cleaning might be first seasonal cleaning that comes to mind, each season change is actually a perfect time for cleaning. When you clean at the start and finish of each season, it has the added bonus of making the big Spring clean that much more manageable. With that in mind, and with it being the beginning of a new fall season, here is a look at how some Barberton residents are cleaning up.

 

Home Interior

 

Cleaning up the interior of your home or apartment is probably the first order of business for seasonal cleaners. In Ohio and throughout the Midwest (unlike, say, California) the seasonal shifts can be pretty dramatic. What this means is people tend to accumulate things that are of specific use for a particular season. In the summer, your house is strewn with tank tops and flip flops. There are fresh tomatoes and corn on the kitchen counter. This is alright if you’re moments away from heading outside to lounge by the pool or about to take a picnic to the park. But as the seasons change, that stuff that is so last season (to borrow a phrase from the fashion industry) starts to become a hassle. Seasonal cleaning is a good time to put things in storage or to evaluate your things and decide if some could be thrown away, recycled or donated.

 

Lawn Care

Of course, it is outside and not inside that is really affected by seasonal changes. Though it seems sometimes like your lawn is just part of your house, it’s also a part of nature. As a result, it changes with the seasons and requires a different type of care. Obviously, the grass needs mowed less and less frequently as the weather gets cooler and the Spring and Summer rains cease. But that doesn’t necessarily mean your lawn doesn’t need as much attention. There are actually things you can do in the fall to better prepare your lawn for next year’s warmer months.

Car/Office Cleaning

 

If you’ve cleaned inside and outside your house for a new season, congratulations. You’ve already done the hard work. Sometimes, that momentum inspires people in Barberton to finish the job and clean up the rest of the spaces they live in. For most people, after their house, they spend the most time in their car or office. Since changing weather can affect your vehicle, a thorough inspection by a professional each season is a good habit to cultivate. Cleaning your office each season may motivate you to stay productive and provide the fresh start necessary to avoid feeling like you’re living the same day over and over again.

Perennials Vs. Annuals: The Pros and Cons

When the time comes for you to plant your flowers, you’re probably unsure of what to plant and when to plant it. If you are trying to find the perfect flowers that come up every year or if you just want them to last one year, you must know exactly what flowers to choose. This can be hard for first time gardeners and it can get frustrating if you do not know the terminology that goes along with planting. Not to worry, the things that you need to know about perennials and annuals can easily be learned, and professional landscapers can direct you. There are many pros and cons to both and your local landscaper will help you to choose the right ones for your yard and garden.

Perennials For Your Garden

Your local Barberton landscaping company can gladly give you more information about the differences between annual and perennials when you schedule an estimate with them. However, there is a lot to know and learn about perennials. Many homeowners will plant perennials in their gardens and landscaping because they will bloom each and every year after they have been planted. Most fade, or go dormant over the winter, but when spring comes back around, they are growing and blooming once again. There are a good number of perennials that are low maintenance and require very little upkeep.

 

Annuals For The Home

When you are considering lots of bloom and a myriad of colors, annuals are generally what homeowners choose. Annuals will only last for one year and they do need to be replanted each year. They are a favorite of gardeners and landscapers because they spread quickly and display beautiful colors that really make an impact. However, annuals require moist soil, but nothing too soggy after they start growing. When their flowers start to die, it is important that they are clipped or deadheaded in order to keep the plant healthy and happy.

 

Both of these flowers can improve the look of your landscape. Most professionals recommend a mixture of both. Perennials that are allowed to become established and flourish will steal the show when it is their time to bloom. Annuals spread fast and show off their bright colors, truly setting off any area that they grace. It truly depends on what type of flowers you prefer and how long you want to keep them, considering factors like soil makeup and light requirements. Your local landscaper will direct you in the way that best suits the needs of your lawn and garden.
