The long term beauty of your lawn is important to our success. We follow best management practices to keep your lawn healthy and vibrant. For example, we follow the 1/3 rule that dictates that you should never remove more a third of the grass blade at any given time so as not to cause unnecessary stress to the lawn.
Each time we visit your home, we carefully trim around all obstructions at the height of the lawn. We go the extra mile by using a stick edger to leave a sharp crisp edge wherever your lawn meets hard surfaces. Finally we blow off all hard surfaces, leaving your property with that manicured look that you will love!
A great looking lawn requires a consistent program of maintenance & renovation. Most soil types tend to compact and harden over time, preventing water and nutrients from reaching deep into your root system.
One of the best ways to give your lawn a makeover is the combination of aeration and reseeding. An aerating machine pulls plugs of soil and thatch out and deposits them on the surface to break down. In the meantime, nutrients, water and fertilizers can more readily penetrate roots more deeply.
This is the perfect time for overseeding, preparing your lawn for a great season!
Mulch or stone are key to creating a beautiful, well- manicured landscape. Mulch & stone often ties together the various aspects of the landscape creating a finished and uniform appearance.
In addition to looking great, mulch provides other essential benefits to your garden. Mulch helps to lock in moisture, minimizing evaporation. As organic mulch breaks down, it adds organic matter to your soil.
Perhaps the best part of a thick layer of mulch is the fact that it significantly reduces weed growth, minimizing time spend weeding and minimizing the need for toxic, chemical weed control.
Proper plant pruning and shrub trimming can enhance both enhance the appearance while increasing plant health and longevity. Some plants are not appropriate for mechanical sheers. In those cases we utilize hand pruning.
We are experienced at identifying areas of need and the proper technique required to trim and prune shrubs and hedges to achieve the desired effect while maintaining plant health and safety. Some gardens are more formal with tightly cropped plantings while others strive for a more natural growth pattern.
Pruning and trimming are two of the most valuable skills of an experienced landscaper, Improper pruning can do significant damage to a plant’s health and appearance.
