Spring clean-up is vitally important. It helps remove thatch, leaf litter, vole
damage, sand and gravel that accumulates throughout late fall and winter. This
process is necessary to promote dense turf with deep color and strong roots. Our
spring clean-up service includes: removal of all leaves and yard debris from
lawn and landscape beds, dethatching of turf surfaces and dead grass removal.
Sidewalks and outdoor surfaces will also be blown clean. (Service performed
Removal of fall debris is beneficial to prevent molds and fungi from developing.
Fall clean-up service includes removal of leaves and yard debris from lawn and
landscape beds. Sidewalks and outdoor surfaces will also be free of all debris. (Service performed end of October thru Mid-November)
Mowing is a very important factor in maintaining a healthy lawn. A professional
mower using proper mowing techniques will ensure a smooth, well-groomed
appearance for your lawn. Mowing at the right height and on the proper schedule
helps maintain a dense, smooth, uniform turf and reduces the competition of
many weeds. Service includes mowing of all turf areas, trimming of all edges,
trees, and landscape. All landscape, sidewalks, and driveway surfaces are blown
free of grass clippings and debris. (Service performed May-October)
TURF FERTILIZATION/WEED CONTROL:
We use only the highest quality fertilizers and weed control products. Fertilizer applications are important for
proper disease resistance, weed control, and overall health of your lawn and
root structure. The mixture and application rates are customized to meet your
specific conditions determined by soil type, sun, shade and moisture. Our six
standard applications are as follows:
Spring fertilizer with crabgrass preventative (dry)
Broad leaf weed control (liquid)
Summer slow release fertilizer (dry)
Late summer slow release fertilizer
Late summer broad leaf weed control (liquid)
Fall fertilizer (dry)
* We guarantee your yard to be weed free, and will spot spray as needed.
LANDSCAPE FERTILIZATION/ WEED CONTROL:
Tree, shrub, and perennial fertilization are beneficial for enhanced growth. It
promotes healthy root structure, vegetative growth, flowering and proper soil
acidity. We use a combination of slow and rapid release nitrogen, which will
last three to four months. It is also enhanced with 5% Sulfur for proper soil
acidity. To prevent weeds in your landscape beds, we use a pre-emergent weed
preventative applied once in spring and once in summer. If weeds exist, we spot
spray a non-selective herbicide.
TREE & SHRUB TRIMMING:
Pruning plant material is required to maintain its size, proper growth and
flowering. Each plant has specific pruning requirements that our professionals
are trained to perform. We perform this maintenance in early summer and late
fall. All debris is hauled away unless otherwise specified by the homeowner.
A process of mechanically removing plugs of thatch and soil from the lawn is
called core aeration. It has many benefits including: opening the soil,
reduceing compaction, improving water infiltration, improving rooting, and
reducing thatch which aids in reducing lawn stress. The plugs are left on the
surface to break down (usually within a couple of weeks) and reincorporate soil
into the thatch layer, creating a better growing medium for turf grass. We
perform this service in the fall when root growth is at its optimum.
Aeravation is the latest turf and lawn practice for the home lawn. It is widely
used in the golf and athletic field industry. Aeravating has the ability to stir
and loosen the soil beneath the sod without destroying the turf on the surface.
The vibrating tines penetrate the compacted soil while loosening the thatch
layer creating more of an opening for root growth and absorption of water, air,
nutrients and chemicals. Aeravating is also very beneficial in breaking up the
compacted soils of new construction before laying sod, encouraging a healthy
Over-seeding is the process of incorporating soil and seed to existing lawns to
create denser, more uniform turf. Many times this technique is performed because
the tree canopy has increased creating shady sites where sunny grass no longer
thrives. This is also beneficial on lawns overgrown with weeds. This process is
best performed in early spring or fall because of cooler temperatures and
likelihood of rainfall. Optimal results are achieved when including over-seeding
with aeravation and aeration. [PHOTO OF OVERSEEDING]
Thatch is an accumulation of tightly meshed dead and living stems and roots that
build up between the zone of green vegetation and the soil surface. A thick
layer of thatch may cause a shallow root system with roots growing only in the
thatch, increasing the risk of insects and disease, mower scalping, dry spots,
and reduced tolerance to environmental stresses. This service is performed
during the spring clean-up process.
We can arrange for bulk mulch to be delivered to your residence. We carry the
finest quality Western Red Cedar and Shredded Hardwood Bark Mulch.
Every couple of years natural wood mulches break down, creating the need for
topdressing. Topdressing mulch beds increases moisture retention as well as
freshening the appearance. We recommend 2-3 inches to be installed in the fall
after perennials and shrubs are cut back. This process also creates an
insulation blanket for your plants increasing the survivability over the cold
IRRIGATION START-UP & BLOW-OUT:
Irrigation systems must be blown out in the mid to late fall to prevent line
freeze and damage. We have the equipment to blow out both small residential and
large commercial systems. In late spring our irrigation specialist will come out
and prepare your system for the season. We will start-up your system, adjust
and/or replace nonworking heads, set up your watering schedule and make any
conservation measures to improve your system.
COMPLETE POND MAINTENANCE:
Pond maintenance is essential to keeping your water feature operating and
looking its best. We cover all aspects of pond maintenance. In the spring we
begin by draining your pond, and power washing everything from the stones to the
filters and falls. Next the pond is filled and the pump and transformer is
checked for any deficiencies. Enzymes and bacteria are also added to ensure
proper pond health. After you enjoy your water feature for the entire summer, we
come back in the fall to prepare it for winter. We drain it and remove the pump
for the winter to prevent freezing and damage.
LANDSCAPE LIGHTING MAINTENANCE:
This process begins with a troubleshooting visit by our low-voltage certified
professional. If there is a problem we can replace everything from wiring,
bulbs, faulty fixtures and transformers. A lighting schedule can also be set up
at this time.
CURB & WALK EDGING:
This service is designed to trim grass growing over hard surfaces leaving you
with clean and defined edges. This service is performed as needed, typically in
June and September. We remove and haul away all debris.
We have programs in place to be of service to the residential homeowner as well
as owners or managers of commercial property. Our contracts are set up for the
season, meaning you can set a budget. Snowplowing and shoveling occurs when
snowfall amounts are 1.5 inches or greater. For residences, snowplowing per-time
is another option. We will wait until the snow storm is over to plow unless snow
fall totals are expected to exceed 6 inches. This option includes a
one-time-per-month minimum, which is equal to the price to plow your driveway,
whether it snows or not. The minimum price is applied to the first snowfall of
the month so if there is only one snowfall in the month you will not be charged
for 2 plowings. We can also include some optional services such as shoveling,
roof raking, sanding/salting, and snow hauling. The shoveling option with the
seasonal rate is your walk to the front door and in front of garage doors.
Shoveling per time will be decided by the customer to include, but not limited
to sidewalks, garage aprons, patios, decks, etc...
