7 Lawn Clean Up Chores We Do for You
At Jamison Lawn Care, we take care of your property to make it healthy going into the winter months. We do the following lawn clean up jobs for your Warwick Township property:
- We remove all of your leaves and haul them away. You no longer have to make numerous trips to the curb with bags filled with leaves. We do all of the work.
- We remove nuts, tree fruit, seeds, and sticks from your property.
- We keep mowing your lawn well into November. We stop mowing just before the ground freezes.
- We put down winter fertilizer to strengthen turf cell walls from bursting and help your lawn’s grass roots develop deep in the soil.
- If you didn’t get your lawn aerated earlier in the fall, we’ll aerate your turf. Otherwise, thatch will continue to grow and contribute to turf diseases.
- We’ll remove all leaf litter around retaining walls and sheltered areas, so you won’t have to worry about mice making a nest anywhere near your house.
- We’ll rake and repair any bald patches on your lawn.

We Clean Up Your Landscape Too
Don’t forget that your landscape and flowerbeds need clean-up services as well. We’ll clear off all leaves and other litter that finds its home in your beds.
We’ll also rake up the old mulch and then put down a fresh batch to give your property a tidy look. Mulch helps regulate soil temperature in the winter and keeps moisture in the ground longer.
We also provide the following landscape and flowerbed clean up services near you:
- We’ll tidy up your flowerbeds by pulling weeds, dividing perennials, and planting spring bulbs.
- We’ll also cut back your perennials, so no dead stems and flower heads are littering your landscape.
- Fall is a great time to add trees and shrubs. We can transplant shrubs to another part of your landscape. We do all of the work of digging the holes for new trees, getting the trees settled into the ground, and putting mulch around them. – Your only job would be to water them regularly.
- We’ll also remove any dead ornamental trees and shrubs. And we’ll trim back any suckers growing at the root line of your trees.
We’ll visit your property throughout the fall season to rake up and haul away leaves. Call us today to schedule your fall lawn and landscape clean ups near you at 267-621-4747 or fill out our contact form.

Plant of the Month: Witch Hazel
If you want fall drama in your landscape this fall and winter, then you need to add witch hazel to it. Witch hazel is a native shrub or small tree, so it adapts to the climate patterns of eastern Pennsylvania.
Witch hazel extract has been used for medicinal purposes and in cosmetics for many years. Your grandmother may have had a bottle of it in her medicine cabinet.
Witch Hazel Fills the Senses
If you are looking for some bold color this fall, witch hazel won’t disappoint you. It’s a deciduous shrub, and its leaves change in autumn. Some varieties of witch hazel bloom in the fall, while others bloom in the winter and into March.
Witch hazel can be a small tree or a shrub, depending on the variety you plant on your property. The woody plant can grow 5′ to 20′ tall and wide. Witch hazel provides punches of bold colors, including yellows, oranges, reds, and purples.
7 Tips for Successfully Growing Witch Hazel
Witch hazel is not only beautiful and fragrant, but it’s nearly maintenance-free. Plus, it’s resistant to many pests and diseases.
Here are seven tips for growing witch hazel in your Chalfont or Horsham landscape:
- Witch hazel prefers full sun. However, it grows as an understory plant in the woods, so it can handle partial shade.
- Witch hazel grows well in healthy soil, but it can also grow in alkaline or acidic pH.
- Witch hazel needs winter chill to bloom fully.
- Most witch hazels bloom between January through March. However, American witch hazel blooms from October to December.
- Native witch hazels are hardier compared to their non-native cousins.
- Prune your witch hazel before summer so next year’s buds can develop.
- Trim away any suckers that grow from the soil line.
