Bush Trimming

We are well trained in trimming all bushes, hedges and shrubs. We can trim on a scheduled basis per year including annually, bi-annually, 4 times per year, monthly or as needed.

Mulch Install

Installing mulch has a number of benifical factors. It crowds out weeds from growing in landscape beds and most importantly retains moisture to maintain healthy flowers, shurbs and trees. Too much mulch will often result in root rot and disease. Give us a call and we will help in estimating how much mulch you will need. We provide a variety of hardwood mulch colors as well as river rocks and pea rocks

Aeration

Lawn aertions take thousands of tiny holes out of the lawn. These holes relieve compacted soil and allows air, moisture and nutrients to penetrate the grass roots. This helps roots grow deep and produces a stronger thicker lawn. The more dense your lawn is the less weeds will grow. Your lawn is a good canidate for aeration if:

  • Your lawn has heavy traffic from kids or pets. This leads to soil compaction

  • Your property has been newly built. Often times the new sod does not have very thick roots yet and the soil under the new grass has been compacted by heavy machinery.

  • Thatch is a build up of dead vegitation between the grass and soil. Take a shovel and remove a slice of the lawn 4" thick. If the thatch layer is greater then 1/2 inch, aeration is recommended.

Aeration is also recommended over dethatching because dethatching a lawn damages the grass and leads to more dead grass. Aeration safely dethatches the lawn and allows the dead grass that hasnt been removed a place to decompose.

Overseeding

On average a blade of grass lives for 45 to 60 days and after several years the grass plants slow down their production rate. This makes the lawns thin with grass and more full of weeds. The best time to over seed is in the late summer/early fall. That way the new grass has will develop better roots before the temperature drops too low. Spring is also another time to over seed but if done so, no pre-emergent fertilizer can be applied as it will kill the grass seed.
