Alberta is famous for its white holidays and snow! With such a fabulous reputation, there is no denying that when winter rolls around here, the season tends to leave its mark! Unfortunately, these harsh temperatures can drastically damage your property if not addressed beforehand. So, if you own a property, you should begin to prepare for cold temperatures and snowfall. There are 3 services you shouldn't skip. Schedule an irrigation winterization service to protect the pipes in your irrigation system, schedule a fall cleanup service to protect your lawn, and lastly, schedule a snow removal service to get ready for when the streets are blanketed in snow!

1. Irrigation Winterization

Irrigation winterization blow out in Calgary, AB.

Here in Alberta, freezing temperatures can cause the water in your irrigation system to freeze! This can destroy your irrigation system because when the water freezes, it expands and can damage pipes. This means professionals here in Alberta need to remove all the water to protect your irrigation system.

Before winter, it's vital that you take the time to schedule an irrigation winterization service to prevent pipes from cracking. If this service isn't completed, the risk is huge and could end with you not having a way to water your plants in the spring — yikes!

Schedule a professional irrigation start-up service in the spring to get your system back up and running again.

2. Fall Cleanup

Before winter enters the chat, you should tidy up your property to prepare it for harsh weather elements, like freezing temperatures and snow! The perfect way to achieve this goal is by scheduling a fall cleanup to fix up your lawn. A fall cleanup typically includes a number of services. It's really a package for property owners looking to get that last makeover of the year in!

Here are a few vital services typically included in a fall cleanup:

  • Leaf and debris removal: Leaf and debris piles create dark, moist areas on your property that can attract pests, lawn disease, and even smother your grass. During these services, professionals remove the leaves and debris to help your lawn stay healthy and strong.
  • Mowing: Your grass needs to be mowed before it goes dormant in the winter to stay strong. The last mow of the year is key to maintaining a healthy turf during cold winter months, and it can tidy it up for the holiday season, too.

3. Snow Removal

In Alberta, up to 100 to 150 cm of snow can fall on average each year! To prepare for this, you should look ahead and schedule snow removal services early for your residential or commercial property — or both! By scheduling ahead, you can lock in a company to clear out the snow immediately and save yourself from needing to shovel snow in the freezing cold. Stay prepared by being an early bird!
