Weekly mowing consists of picking up all the trash in the lawn and landscape beds; mowing at an appropriate height to prevent any scalping or clumping - usually around 3-3.5 inches depending on the lawn; trimming around all the trees, edging and curb lines; blowing all the grass clippings back into the lawn for a nice clean look and pulling any weeds in the landscape beds. Round Up will be applied to all weeds on the property as needed.
Spring Clean UpIt is important to do a spring clean up to clean any sand, trash and debris that has accumulated over the winter from the lawn. De-thatching, aeration and fertilizing will be done to help water, air and nutrients enter the root zone and will give your lawn a healthy start to the season.
Fall Clean Up
It is very important to clean all the leaves out of the lawn and landscape beds to prevent any disease from occurring and to make it easier to do a spring clean up. Any leaves remaining on the driveways, patios or sidewalks could leave stains.
Core Aeration is done in the spring and/or fall. It reduces soil compaction and helps control thatch in lawns while allowing water, air and fertilizer to move into the root zone resulting in a strong healthy root base.
We make sure your lawn is getting just the right amount of nutrients it needs to achieve its full potential.
Your property will be fertilized three times a year using dry, granular fertilizers sold by a professional grade distributor. We do not use phosphorus based fertilizers. The granules will be blown away from any hard surfaces and back onto the lawn to help prevent runoff.
Two liquid herbicide applications will be applied to your lawn each year. The second herbicide application will include a crabgrass inhibitor. Herbicide applications will be applied during favorable weather conditions to maximize its effectiveness.
Pruning the shrubs at least once each year is important to help maintain their size and shape. Some faster-growing shrubs may require additional pruning. We are thorough in picking up all the clippings out of the landscape beds to give you a nice clean look. Any trees in the landscape that need to be pruned will be done professionally upon your request.
For large fields, we do field mowing with a Toro 16 foot mower.
