Arlington leaf removal services
Arlington sits across the Potomac River from the nation's capital. This waterfront location, as well as an abundance of trees and rolling hills, add natural charm to a densely populated area. Arlington's architecture includes historical buildings that are several hundred years old, modern structures and many styles in between. Some of these are garden-style structures that incorporate ample greenery into their design. Also, Arlington is ranked in the top cities in the United States for park access and overall park quality.
With a humid subtropical climate, Arlington typically has cool winters with moderate snowfall. Summers are warm or hot with high humidity on many days. Fall arrives in September and extends through November most years. These months have fluctuating temperatures and moderate precipitation. Autumn in Arlington is a beautiful time of year thanks to the area's thick foliage. While large commercial developments and micro-communities are located throughout the area, trees have been interspersed across developed areas as well.
Many species of native trees are abundant throughout Virginia. One of the most prevalent of these trees is the Virginia pine. Other common native tree species are red spruce, bald cypress, red cedar, hickory, hemlock, cypress, willow, cottonwood, walnut, aspen, beech, and numerous others. Typically, pine trees retain their needs for approximately three to five years before the needles fall naturally to the ground. The most common time for pine trees to shed needles is during the early fall months, and they may change colors a few weeks before dropping. Other trees lose their leaves annually in the fall. Before needles and leaves drop, they may introduce brilliant shades of yellow, crimson and orange leaves and needles to the area. This adds beauty to the area's natural landscape throughout the fall season.
Some of the same trees that are found throughout parks and commercial areas in Arlington and beyond may also grow in your yard or on neighboring properties. When the leaves and pine needles on or around your property begin to change colors and drop during autumn, you may appreciate the intense beauty of the seasonal scene. However, once these elements accumulate on the ground, the seasonal chore of leaf removal requires your prompt attention. Leaves and pine needles may take a longer time to decompose naturally. In the meantime, they will prevent your grass from receiving the rain, sunlight, and fresh air needed to thrive. When this happens, death and disease may occur. The best way to avoid damage to your lawn is to remove leaves each fall.
Leaf removal may need to be completed at least a few times each season. In previous years, you may have been astounded by the number of leaves that can fall from your trees. You may fill many bags with leaves every week or two throughout the season as leaves continue to fall to the ground. Some leaves and needles may also venture onto your property from neighboring lawns, so the size of your chore is not always dictated by the number of trees located on your property.
Removing leaves is not as easy as it sounds. You may need to stand out in brisk winds, drizzle and other unpleasant elements for several hours while you rake the backyard and front yard. Bagging vast piles of leaves can create back strain and may take a lengthy period of time.
Fall in Arlington is often exciting thanks to many seasonal events. For example, the area hosts the Front Royal Brew and Blues Festival, the Taste of Freedom Wine Festival, the Burke's Garden Fall Festival, Oktoberfest, Annual Hampton Bay Days Festival, the Virginia Peanut Festival and many other smaller and most important festivals and events. In or close to Arlington, several sports teams host home games, and you may be a fan of these teams. For example, the Washington Redskins play professional football games a short drive away in the fall. Other teams include the Washington Capitals, the Richmond Elite, the Northern Virginia Eagles, the Virginia Cyclones and numerous others. Many performing arts venues host shows in autumn as well. These include Kennedy Center, Capital One Arena, Lincoln Theatre, Sidney Harman Hall, and other beautiful venues.
While there are many seasonal events that you could enjoy in the area rather than raking leaves, there are also year-round attractions nearby that could hold your attention. For example, the Iwo Jima Memorial, the Arlington Memorial Amphitheater, the National Mall, the Smithsonian, the Lincoln Monument, the Thomas Jefferson Memorial, Ford's Theater and others. Arlington is also home to dozens of larger and smaller parks that offer a wide range of amenities for you to enjoy with a group or on your own. Some of the local parks include Lyon Village Park, Gateway Park, Rocky Run Park, Potomac Overlook Park, and several other parks.
These are only a few of the many wonderful ways for you to spend leisure time in Arlington and beyond.
