Seasonal Clean Up
In early spring, it's time to clean up winter leaves and debris and get ready for your landscape to thrive in the growing months. A thorough spring clean up is important to prepare the yard for the best growing conditions while minimizing the exposure to fungus and disease. Fall clean up removes all leaves, branches and other debris that have accumulated over the course of the summer season cleans and prepares your property for the winter, however, more importantly, it helps protect your landscape from disease that may persist in the soil, fallen leaves, or dead branches remaining on the plant. Clean up helps minimize the amount of fungal material that survives winter by removing all debris prior to the first snowfall.
Bed Edging & Weeding
Edging and weeding is done to keep your beds maintained throughout the season and preparing them in the spring is essential to your landscape looking it's best, allowing for seasonal maintenance to keep them that way.
Mulch is a very important part of your landscape. It not only provides an esthetically pleasing look, enhancing the beauty of your landscape, but it also provides cover to the beds to control weeds and reduce moisture loss to plants.
Soil Analysis & Amendments
Every component of your landscape has a natural optimal environment in which to thrive. Soil testing determines the soil conditions, microbial activity and nutrient levels. Through diagnostics, soil amendment recommendations are provided to adjust the nutrient levels through the seasons, to achieve a healthier soil environment for your landscape to grow.
We create gardens of distinction to accent your landscape and enhance the appeal of your outdoor space. Our service includes installation and maintenance of annuals, perennials, and seasonal bulbs, placing pops of color where it will have the greatest impact and creating a great first impression.
Proper irrigation is critical to the health of your landscape. Improper watering can cause disease, stress your lawn, trees and shrubs, and lead to a general decline in the appeal of your landscape. We closely monitor your irrigation system, changing the amount and frequency of water in response to the current weather, time of the season, soil conditions, and plant and lawn needs.
Snow Removal & Ice Management
In the winter months, when snow and ice come our way, we provide snow plowing, shoveling and ice management to keep the path to your home safe.
As seasons come and go, the landscape changes too. Our crews are experienced in all aspects of landscape installation, working with Landscape Architects to complete the design you're are looking for. Whether you are doing a complete landscape design, a small addition to your current landscape or just transplanting your plants to a different area on your property, we have the knowledge and experience to complete the project.
Great landscapes start with personalized planting plans that work for your property, your lifestyle and your area. We are skilled in both formal and naturalistic planting designs that combine horticultural and ecological knowledge to create beautiful year round landscapes.
Lawn Care Program
Our 8-step lawn fertilization program, which includes fertilization, weed and insect control, is designed to help improve turf performance. It is the basis for a healthy and beautiful lawn, feeding your lawn when necessary and controlling weeds and insects you don't want. Our goal is to have your lawn look its very best!
Mow & Trim
Most believe we mow to keep our lawn and edges looking neat and clean. However, mowing is one of the most important components to keeping your lawn healthy. It's simple - mow it frequently. While height is important (too low and it will scalp the lawn, too high and a host of other problems arise), mowing more often simply results in a healthier, better-looking lawn! The fact is, if all other factors are equal, the lawn that is mowed most frequently will be superior to all the others. Mowing should be done from early spring through mid-fall
An important procedure in lawn care, mechanical core aeration allows increased oxygen to penetrate the root zone of the turf, encouraging microbial activity and helping to relieve soil compaction. Core aeration also provides more room for root growth and increases drainage to help your lawn look its best!
Top Dress & Overseed
Using a broadcast seeding method, new seed is planted directly into the soil. This allows the lawn to recover from the previous season and prepares it to tolerate stressful conditions in the upcoming season. It encourages a thicker turf, which discourages weeds and helps with rejuvenation. It is best done on an annual basis, generally in the fall.
One of the most important ingredients to a healthy landscaping is proper irrigation. Too much or too little water can cause disease and stress on your lawn, trees and shrubs. We monitor your system, changing the amount and frequency of water in direct relation to the current weather, time of the season, soil conditions and plant and lawn needs.
Tree & Shrub Care
Winter Shrub Protection
During winter, the weather can be especially unpredictable; ice, snow, low temperatures, high winds can all play havoc on our trees and shrubs, which can be expensive losses. To protect your investment, we tie and/or wrap plant material to protect your landscape from harsh winter weather, minimizing winter damage.
Tree & Shrub Care Program
Our 8 step Tree & Shrub Care Program is designed to help improve and maintain the health of your trees and shrubs, which includes insect and disease control. It is the basis for healthy and aesthetically pleasing plants, providing nutrition and insect control at the right time of the season.
Ornamental Tree & Shrub Pruning
In order to maintain or improve tree health structure, pruning is necessary, for both young and established trees. Young trees benefit by ensuring a strong framework for future growth, while mature trees benefit in overall health maintenance and safety. Pruning also assists in maintaining the shape and form of trees so they stay looking their best and maintain their structural integrity.
Trimming is essential to keep hedges healthy and looking their best. Regular trimming minimizes gaps that take care and time to rectify. For young hedges, it is tempting to leave them to grow upwards, however, trimming will encourage the hedge to become dense and compact for privacy, as opposed to thin and sparse.
Tick & Mosquito Management
Ticks and mosquitoes are a nuisance, as well as a health concern, so it's important to control their population and activity in season. We provide a comprehensive tick control program with applications carefully timed to keep the risk of tick-borne disease to a minimum. Mosquito control is also provided as a program, and can also be applied on an as-needed basis.
Once the deer find a food source, they are very persistent in returning, damaging your trees and plants while eating their latest meal. To protect your investment and control the deer activity in your yard, we provide deer fence installation, as well as deer repellent spray. Deer repellent is offered as a seasonal program or as needed.
