Yard Cleanup After Storms Cumming, GA
yard clean up

Many Georgians are facing the aftermath of Hurricane Irma. While most of our state was spared the extensive house damage and flooding, many homeowners experienced the effects of the high winds in their yard. Your landscape may be covered with broken tree limbs, fallen trees and scattered debris. While you may be anxious to clean up the mess due to its poor appearance, it is important to know the safety risks of a post-storm clean up and why you may want a lawn care expert to handle it.

Once a major storm subsides, you can follow these safety precautions as you conduct your yard cleanup:

  1. Access the Damage Carefully: Walk around your entire property. Before you start picking up branches or bagging debris, take pictures of the damage first (in case you need it for insurance documentation). Never touch a power line that may be dangling or touching a tree)
  2. Wear Protective Gear: It’s best to wear gloves and even protective eyewear when tackling storm clean up in your yard so that you avoid unsuspecting sharp objects or other causes of injury.
  3. Take Time to Know Your Tools: You may be anxious to pick up the chainsaw and get to work after a storm. However, be patient enough to follow the instruction manual first and work at a steady pace. It may take weeks or months to get your yard back in shape.
  4. Prune Damaged Trees: If you don’t take care of a damaged tree correctly, you may leave it vulnerable to disease and insects. Make sure you know how to properly trim or prune trees with broken branches.
  5. Replace Trees, Plants and Flowers: You may have areas of your landscape that are unsalvageable. This often warrants a trip to the local nursery to buy more. Make sure to consult with an expert to ensure you are buying the appropriate sized plant or tree as well as the variety that will do well in the specific area of your lawn. Mulch or other groundcover will likely need to be replaced too.
  6. Consider Hiring an Expert: If your storm damage is too overwhelming to do yourself, or if you simply aren’t sure how to properly repair the tree injuries, call an expert. A landscaping professional will understand how to properly clean your yard as well as rebuild the landscape design for optimal appeal.

What our clients say about us

Katherine M.

Would give 10 stars if I could. Pannone Landscaping exceeded our expectations and was such a pleasure to work with! Brad set reasonable expectations for the timing of the work (leveling, drainage system, fire pit, and sodding), and was the best priced quote with quality material and labor. We cannot speak highly enough of Brad and his crew, from their professionalism to expert advice to skilled work! Our yard went from ugly mud pit to lush golf course. Looking forward to working with Pannone and his team again!

Alex D.

Brad and his team did a wonderful job for us! Our backyard was overgrown and a mess after we moved in. Brad helped us come up with a plan to turn it around that would work for our family. He was quick to respond, reasonable priced, and our yard looks fantastic. We’ve gotten so many compliments. Hope to work with him again in the future and would highly recommend him to anyone that needs some landscaping help!

We had the best experience working with Pannone's Lawn Pros & Landscaping! Brad guided us on every aspect of our exterior renovation from hardscapes to the annual color. He worked to find exactly what we were looking for even when items were difficult to find. We greatly appreciate his responsiveness, honest guidance and professionalism throughout the entire project. Thank you Brad!!
