Landscape Maintenance Services
Please view the complete list of landscape maintenence services we offer below:
We recommend pruning of shrubs a minimum of twice per year. Perennial care consists of trimming perennials such as ornamental grasses and hostas back either in the winter or early spring prior to mulch installation.
Flower Bed Maintenance
Weed control: Service consists of pre-emergent applications to the landscape areas twice per year. These act to prevent weeds from growing. Any weeds that do grow would be either hand pulled or sprayed.
Mulch Cultivation: A new service that we offer is mulch cultivation which helps to rejuvenate the mulch beds. Over time mulch can become compacted, preventing air and water from reaching the root zone of the plants. This process will break up any clumps and allow the air and water to pass through to the root zone of the plants. It also rejuvenates the color of the mulch.
Edging: Edging of the mulch beds help define the landscape area from the turf area. This also helps to contain the mulch in the bed, whether it be adjacent to the turf area or a sidewalk. This is accomplished by gradually sloping the mulch bed to be below the level of the grass or sidewalk.
Seasonal Color - Spring and Summer
Bring your landscapes to life with a splash of color. For early spring-Bulbs such as Tulips. For the summer-Annuals such as Begonias, Petunias, Impatiens
Begonias: Begonias are known for their red, scarlet, pink, rose or white flowers with either green or bronze leaves. Bronze-leafed varieties tolerate heat and sun best, while the green are more suitable for shady areas.
Petunias: These are low growing spreading plants that have flowers that vary from funnel-shaped single blooms to densely ruffled double blooms. There are many colors available including pure white, cream, yellow, and the entire spectrum of reds and blues. Plants will bloom throughout summer until first frost and will even work well in hanging baskets.
Impatiens: Impatiens work well in the shade. They come in a wide variety of colors, from nearly blue to deepest red, salmon, orange, pink, white, striped, speckled and bicolor. They are striking when mass planted, but are also effective in containers or as filler.
