Mowing, Trimming, and Edging:  Performed between April to October (27 Weeks)

More than 90% of all our properties are double mowed for evenness of lawn.
Change pattern weekly – Removal of trash, No visible clumps, Trim all un-mowed areas, Mow at 3” Mechanical edge all curbs and walks. No Asphalt will be edged. The last two cuts of the season will be spread out into 10 day cuts; we will knock down the lawn ½” as well.

Spring Cleanup: Performed 3/14 to 4/21 (Weather dictates)

Clean turf and landscape beds free of leaves and debris.  Cleaning of perennials is extra.

Fall Cleanup:  Performed 10/16 to 11/22 (Weather dictates)

Full Maintenance clients will have leaves removed (3) three times (1 with last mowing of season-leaves to be picked up from the turf only this round)

1st Cleaning: Performed in early November (leaves will be picked up from the turf only)

2nd Cleaning: Performed in mid November after 90% of all leaves have dropped (includes beds and turf) ALL MATERIAL IS REMOVED AND DISPOSED OFF LOCATION.  Cleaning of perennials is an extra cost.

Pruning (Seasonal):

Performed two or more times per season. (See contract)

Pruning of low growing shrubs to a proper shape. Pruning of Ornamental trees (Less than 10 feet) Hand pruning will be performed where necessary.  All debris will be disposed offsite properly.

Landscape Bed Maintenance:

Performed every 3 weeks

We will manually pull all weeds taller than 2” and spray with weed killer all weeds less than 2”. This provides weed free landscape beds and parking lots for maximum curb effect. This does require us to have special license.

Bed Edging:

Usually performed while installing mulch

Mechanical edge landscape bed edges to give a clean, crisp, and well defined edge.  Removal of built up dirt and mulch (may be an additional cost) and disposal of material properly.  Giving the cleanest look possible.

Bark / Mulch Installation:

Performed 3/1 to 6/1

We will lay a Pre-emergent (for weed control) under the new mulch. The use of color enhanced mulch for maximum color retention is recommended.

Over Seeding:

Performed all year except in the winter season. This will promote a heavier root system which makes the lawn less susceptible to problems with diseases and heavy drought periods. The best results will require a fertilizing and weed control program along with plenty of water. Turf will be aerated 3-4 times to loosen soil compaction.

Perennial Care:

Dead heading of all perennials (Hostas, Daylily’s, and Ornamental Grasses, etc.). This can be done in the spring or the fall – this is best to do in the fall while doing the fall cleanups. This will make all blooming plants grow better simply because they are not trying to grow through the dead plant material. This will make fall clean up’s easier and cleaner.

Lawn Dethatching:

This will promote a healthy root system and allow water to better penetrate to the roots.  Some thatch is always good, but too much is harmful for the turf. Best in cooler months
