Lawn Maintenance Signature Services
The lawn is maintained at a height of 2-3″ weekly. Lawn Maintenance is completed on the same day each week weather permitting. Lawn clippings are picked up and removed as needed providing a healthy lawn and neat appearance. Clippings are blown or swept off of all sidewalks and driveways. Lawn edges are trimmed on a weekly basis, or as needed to facilitate good looks. Lawn Maintenance is the minimum service offered. Lawn Maintenance is required to receive additional programs or services.
Fertilization and Weed Control
Six (6) applications of premium Fertilizer and Weed Control are applied at optimal times and soil temperatures throughout the season. Fertilizer applications provide the correct amounts of nitrogen, phosphorus, and potash. The nutrients are applied in granular form to stimulate leaf growth, promote green color, and develop root systems. The first applications contain a pre-emergent for crabgrass prevention. Weed Control is applied in liquid form. Weeds are sprayed as needed and with each Fertilizer application.
Fall Core Aeration
Small cores of soil and thatch are removed from the lawn areas in the fall. The lawn is Core Aerated to improve lawn grass rooting, reduce soil compaction, and enhance thatch breakdown.
The Spring Clean-Up includes the removal of all debris, accumulated leaves, and material at the beginning of the season as weather permits. All material will be removed from around buildings, landscape beds, lawn areas, driveways, and sidewalks, and hauled away.
This service includes the weekly maintenance of leaves on the lawn areas during the fall until the final Fall Clean-Up at the end of the season. The Fall Clean-Up includes the removal of all debris, accumulated leaves, and material from around buildings, landscape beds, lawn areas, driveways, and sidewalks. All material removed will be hauled away. Please note; We will not be on the property if we don’t do the weekly maintenance.

Bed Maintenance Signature Services
Weed Removal eliminates existing weeds in all bed areas including rock beds. Bed material is cultivated promoting moisture in plant roots. Hoes, hand cultivators, and/or cultivator machines may be used in addition to hand pulling of weeds three times per season in the spring, summer, and fall. Flower bed edges are spade edged with each Weed Removal visit leaving a clean appearance.
Spring Pre-Emergent Weed Control
Granular Pre-Emergent is applied in early spring before weed seedlings emerge. The granular application is 60-80% effective stopping weed seed germination thereby reducing weeds throughout the season.
Dark premium hardwood double-processed mulch is delivered and installed twice during the season. Once in the Spring and once in the Summer. Popular in color and smell, our mulch provides moisture retention, breaks down into fine humus. This break down amends soil around plants, shrubs, and trees.
