When you are performing your maintenance in the landscape it sometimes may take several days. Even if it doe not, make sure you are doing everything in the right order. What we mean by this is you don’t want to clean out the beds before you have trimmed the shrubs. If you did you would be left have to clean them out twice. Think through the order in which you attack the clean up. Start at the top and work your way down. If you are adding new mulch or pine straw this is always the last step. Before you blow or rake out all of your trash make sure you are done crating any new debris. Hope this helps!
