Storm cleanup and debris removal hopefully are the worst of your worries after Hurricane Irene paid a visit to the Wilmington NC area on her way up the east coast. Yes, it’s hurricane season in Wilmington. We here at Gunnell Landscaping hope you made it through safely and only had to endure the normal inconveniences of lost power, bored children cooped up in the house too long and no cable TV for a few days.
However, if Hurricane Irene’s visit left you with storm debris on your property or if flooding ruined your landscape or you just need a good general after storm clean up and assessment of your landscaping needs, contact us because we have crews standing by ready to help.
Once these hurricanes and tropical storms blow through and you go out to do your damage assessment, it’s easy to under estimate what you are faced with. Of course you want to secure your home first if it needs attention, but sooner or later you’re going to have to face the mess that once was your beautiful lawn and landscape.
At first you think a couple of hours of raking the lawn and picking up a few downed tree limbs and yard waste will take care of it. 8 hours later when you can’t feel your arms, your hands are blistered, your back feels like you lifted a truck and you’ve got a mountain of storm debris growing by the curb, you realize you should have called for help.
All too often we see homeowners get into these storm cleanup jobs they simply can’t handle, such as cutting downed trees, digging up stumps or removing tree limbs, trees and heavy pieces of storm debris. Plus if the city won’t haul away your storm debris and yard waste, you may still have a problem on your hands after the initial storm cleanup.
So if you are feeling a little overwhelmed and under equipped at the prospect of cleaning up your property or you are half way through and ready to give up, call Gunnell for expert advice and service for your storm cleanup and debris removal needs in addition to your landscape restoration requirements after the storm. We will clean up your property, remove all your yard waste and storm debris and get your landscaping back so you can focus on enjoying your property instead of working on it.
