Our maintenance lawn services will vary from season to season and from lawn to lawn. We adapt our seasonal maintenance based on several factors: time of year, customer’s wishes, and the needs of the property. These visits may include weed control, fertilizations, pruning of shrubs and trees, pest control/prevention, mulching, general clean-up and upkeep of landscaping. In some landscaping plans, this may also include removal and replacement of annuals, re-sodding bare lawn areas, fertilizing your lawn, and other specific upkeep as desired by the customer.
Winter yard maintenance usually includes winter leaf clean-up and disposal. This is also the time for rose and fruit tree pruning and the application of dormant oil for the prevention of disease and pests.
