Services We Provide:
Fertilization and Weed Control
Rest easy knowing that your landscape is always in the best shape for vibrant growth! We custom tailor a program for your property. From traditional to organic fertilizer, from turf to landscape beds, our experts can take care of it all.
Trees and shrubs are irrigated frequently when grown in the nursery and when first planted so that their roots quickly grow out from the root ball and into the soil in the landscape. It’s crucial that roots grow as quickly as possible so irrigation can cease. The best way to encourage rapid root growth is frequent light irrigation applied to the root ball after planting. Due to relatively shallow roots, turfgrasses typically require irrigation at least once a week to maintain quality. On sandy soils, some grasses may need to be irrigated at least two days a week to ensure acceptable quality.
Retaining wall installation is a beautiful way to set off parts of your yard, or outdoor patio and pool area, but it’s also an aesthetic statement piece for a driveway or entry way. Imagine your home having a custom-designed paver walkway leading up to your entrance, with a concrete block retaining wall to offset your garden and yard from other homes.
Garden Weed Control
Our landscaping maintenance service is designed to stop weeds before they even get a chance to start taking over your landscaping, by using a granular weed pre-emergent. For those tenacious, or existing weeds, we’ll do light hand-weeding on a weekly basis, as well as apply any liquid weed control that might be necessary. We also perform a more comprehensive, once a month, hand-weeding, ensuring your landscape and flower beds look great all Spring and Summer long.
If you trim a rose bush correctly, in the summer, you can increase its late season bloom. The best time for summer pruning is after a flush of blooms. Summer rosebush trimming consists of deadheading, removing dead wood, and shaping the bush.
In a yard, resources are absorbed by the grass and used to grow. By slicing the growth down to a short and uniform level on a regular basis, all of the growth gets an equal distribution of resources. Due to this fact, mowing on a regular basis will allow the lawn to remain consistent in nature, because all of the resources that are gained from the sun and water are spread out evenly throughout the yard. Consistency is important to both health and appearance, so making sure that resources are evenly distributed is very important.
Fall foliage may be beautiful to look at, but think twice before you allow it to accumulate on your lawn. If you don’t keep up with leaf removal, a blanket of leaves can suffocate your grass and block it from getting the sunlight, water and nutrients it needs. A good rule of thumb is that if you can’t see your lawn through the leaves, it can’t grow.
Pruning is really the best preventive maintenance a young plant can receive. It’s critical for young trees to be trained to encourage them to develop a strong structure. Young trees pruned improperly or not pruned at all for several years may require heavy pruning to remove bigger branches to prevent trees from becoming deformed.
Our snow removal services are provided to residential homes. We recognize the importance of having clean, well-maintained, and safe areas to ensure the easy flow of traffic in residential locations and reduce risks of liability.
