A Riverdale Toronto Spring Cleanup

And So Another Work Season Begins....



After another winter hiatus, I'm back into the garden again. Not mine, of course, since the frost line is still only a few inches below the surface. This post should be titled "A Really Late Fall Cleanup" since the client contacted me only because he wants to put his house in Toronto's Riverdale neighbourhood on the market now for sale and, not surprisingly, feels that several inches of matted leaves from last autumn surrounding the property would put off some buyers!

I usually don't walk around in and around most gardens this early in spring since the soil is still more or less frozen and my mucking around would damage the soil texture. For this property, however, the backyard is comprised of a flagstone patio and raised beds while in the front, the soil was dry due to a slight slope and a sunnier-than-usual scenario since the mature maples haven't leafed out yet. No digging was required (or even possible) for this cleanup, just raking a ton of matted and wet leaves.


Here's the front yard with "before" and "after":

All in all, it was a great day to be working outside. I just hope it doesn't snow anytime soon!
