“I got the number of this company from a trailer on the way to work. I called with low expectations as we rarely have had any luck with landscapers/ yard maintenance people in the past. Finding Dave at Jim’s Mowing has been amazing. Fast service, accurate detailed quotes and a great guy to deal with. Good price, good reliable service from a nice guy. Highly recommend this company!”
“We have used Jim’s mowing for several years now. Stu, Connor and Gareth all provide outstanding service and very fair prices. This year besides cutting the grass and general care of our lawns they also helped us with some landscaping. Our gardens now look spectacular thanks to Jim’s Mowing fine work.”
“I have been using Jim’s Mowing for many years and have always been extremely happy with their service. Today my roommates and I were absolutely blown away by the AMAZING job Daniel & Brooklyn did clearing away a spectacular amount leaves from the flower beds, lawn and curb. Perfection! We highly recommend Peter and his Team.”
Fall Cleanup in Sooke!
By now in Sooke, the weather is getting chillier, the season’s colors are showing, and you’re stuck wondering what you are supposed to do about your yard. Have no fear because our Jim’s Mowing Sooke family has you covered. A fall cleanup is a great way to ensure the long term health of your garden and lawn.
By the end of the summer, branches or stems of various shrubs and plants might have died or developed disease. Perhaps the summer’s growth has blocked pathways and larger plants overtake smaller plants. Moreover, the trees and shrubs are shedding their dead foliage above, leaving dead branches and debris, and overwhelming amounts of leaves. If these aren’t removed during your fall cleanup, it can choke out your plants and leave dead spots on your lawn.
Property Fall Cleanup Service
When we come in to do a fall cleanup in Sooke, we will use our expertise to help prep your plants for optimal winter survival. We’ll remove the dead or diseased branches, stems and foliage. This is the cleaning method of pruning, one of four methods we use to properly prepare your plants for the various seasons. There is also the reducing, thinning, and raising method. To reduce means to cut back any growth that has started to block paths or cover unwanted areas. The thinning method is for your bushiest of plants and this method thins out the excessive branches in order to let more light hit the core of your plant, which promotes stronger growth for the remaining foliage. The last method is the raising method, and this looks to lift all of the unwanted stems and branches near the bottom of your plant or tree to a more desired height. Perhaps you have a bamboo plant that has grown leaves and stems across the entirety of their shoots, or perhaps the branches growing from the bottom of your tree have made it too hard for you to walk through your yard. This method cleans up the bottoms of your plant, lifting it to a safe or desirable height.

Fall Cleanup: The Pros For your Garden
Fall in Sooke is a great time to clear out your weeds or dead plants in your garden, or even just prepare your plants for the next growing season. With our fall cleanup, we’ll appropriately cut any plants that need to be down to the ground, we’ll remove your weeds, dead plants, and especially the fallen leaves, and we can refresh your soil to promote optimal nutrients and water absorption for your plants moving into the chilly months.
Another service we would recommend for your garden is a bark mulch installation during a fall cleanup in Sooke. Spring is typically the season most people think of for a bark mulch installation, but there are actually many great reasons to do it in the fall! For one, it can help create a protective layer for the soil and roots of your plants, which can help with those nasty, soil damaging frosts. It also helps lock in moisture, and if you live in areas that are particularly cold, this can keep your soil healthier for longer. Besides the health of your plants, a fresh bark mulch installation always brightens up the look of your garden, a blessing to look at on those chilly Sooke days.
Why Fertilizer and Lime with a Fall Cleanup?
As fall progresses in Sooke, the growth of your grass begins to slow down. It might be harder for it to retain nutrients, or perhaps the pH level has become too acidic. This is the perfect time to prepare your lawn with some simple, cost effective solutions during your fall cleanup. For one, we highly recommend a lime and fertilizer treatment, and we recommend this throughout the year in Sooke every 6 weeks if you want the healthiest lawn. But even once per season is better than nothing.
We always offer lime treatment with our fertilizer services because without it, your money wouldn’t be put to good use. Lime treatment helps correct acidic lawns, raising the pH of your lawn to the optimal levels to receive nutrients. This in combination with fertilizer, the nutrients for your lawn, optimizes its chances of growing and staying healthy. Later in the fall, a good aeration can help as well. Our Jim’s Franchisees are trained on how to best prepare your lawn for the winter and can deliver a well-rounded fall cleanup!
