Landscape Maintenance

Regular maintenance is the key to keeping any landscape looking its best. We offer full landscape maintenance services and always keep our properties looking their best. Different landscapes require unique maintenance plans and we will develop one to best suit your individual needs. Call us today to find out how you can bring out the best in your landscape.

Tree & Shrub Pruning

As all plantings get bigger they need to be pruned for both appearance and health reasons. All of our major tree trimming is done by a certified arborist. When pruning shrubs, we practice both shape pruning for an exact defined look and selective hand pruning giving a more natural look. Sometimes when shrubs have been neglected during growth (very common), it is necessary to rejuvenate them through selective pruning and thinning.

Mulching

Nothing sharpens the look of a landscape like fresh mulch. Besides appearance, having the right amount of mulch is critical to the health of your landscape plantings. It helps keep moisture in the ground by the plants root system while organically decomposing over time giving nutrients back to the soil. Beds should be topped off each season with a thin layer rather than mounding up the beds every few years. Three to four inches is usually desired in most beds. Mulch also helps prevent weeds from germinating and becoming eye soars. To further prevent weeds, pre-emergent weed control can be applied before installation (see next item below).

We will install any type of mulch you desire: Light hardwood, dark hardwood, dyed dark oak, western red cedar and dyed red. Additionally we can also install a variety of river rock ground cover providing significantly less maintenance over the years. Delivery only or installation is always available.

Ornamental Bed Weed Control

There are three methods we use to control weeds in mulch and rock beds. Hand weeding, pre-emergent herbicide treatments and post-emergent herbicide treatments all have their time and place. Most often the best way to control weeds is by using a combination of these three methods or by choosing the most appropriate based on conditions and customer needs.

Sidewalk, Curb and Driveway Edging

This service defines the concrete borders of your lawn and gives it a clean manicured look. Turf overgrowth (both grass and soil) onto concrete is natural and can take away from the overall appearance of your lawn. Edging removes this overgrown turf and gives your lawn a crisp, clean appearance. The more often you edge, the less overgrowth there is. This makes is easier for us and is why we offer edging as a monthly service at drastically reduced rates. It also keeps your edges looking good all season, rather than once or twice a year.

Spring & Fall Clean Ups

One thing is for certain-the leaves always fall! We offer full service clean ups including removal and disposal of all your undesirable lawn refuse. At the time of clean ups, we often encourage our customers to sign up for shrub pruning and perennial bed clearing as it is a good time to prune and clear out beds. Every property is unique in its requirements for spring and fall clean ups and we will come up with a program that best suits your specific needs.
