Lawn Services

 

Our mowing season begins late winter as we see it is needed,  then our visits continue weekly as the season progresses.  In the fall, we blow leaves off the hard surfaces such as walks, patios, driveways, and the lawn.

Year round weekly lawn visits to your yard include:

    • Mowing as needed
    • Edging the walks, drive and street with an edger
    • Weed eating small areas
    • Blowing off the hard surfaces including patios and porches
    • Picking up sticks from the lawn area
    • Shrub beds are not included
    • Blowing debris off the catch basins in the yard
    • Blowing fall leaves off the grass and paved surfaces, into natural areas and shrub beds
We offer lawn care in select areas.  Please contact us to see if you are in our service area.

Leaf Clean Up & Removal

We provide this service exclusively for our Lawn Maintenance customers.

We have two methods of leaf clean up in the fall.  Which one we use will depend on the volume of leaves in your yard.

We cannot predict how the leaves will fall.  Each year is different and weather plays a huge factor in the amount of time needed to clean up and dispose of leaves.  Sometimes we get lucky and they fall all at once making collection time minimal.  On the other hand, if we are getting a lot of rain, wet leaves take much longer to blow, collect and dispose of.  Any estimates given are general and can vary year to year, even in the same yard.

Weekly mowing visits are a time where mowing and blowing the leaves usually can keep them under control up to a point.  This is included in the weekly mowing charge provided the leaves are not excessive, taking more time than an average lawn visit and can be chopped and blown to natural areas with a mower.  Our priority during the fall is to keep the falling leaves from smothering the new grass that is coming up in the lawn.

This is blowing the leaves out of the entire yard or some parts of the yard where heavy leaf accumulation occurs including natural areas and shrub beds.  Usually this is required two times in the fall, once in the middle of the season and again at the end.  It is best to decide if there are natural areas in the yard that we can blow leaves into or it will be necessary load them onto a truck and haul them off.  This type of clean up is charged on an hourly basis for man hours and leaf vacuum truck if needed.

Winter & Early Spring Clean Up

Winter is a great time to clean up your property and get a fresh start for spring!

Just because the weather has turned cold and the grass has stopped growing doesn’t mean there’s not plenty to do.  Here are some good housekeeping items to consider:

  • Major pruning that requires ladders, pole saws, chainsaws and larger loads of debris removal (landfill fees may apply).
      • Pruning of shrubs
      • Removing lower limbs off of trees
      • Pruning to shape large shrubs and trees
  • Cleaning out shrub beds of remaining leaves, dead plants and dormant foliage
  • Edging shrub beds to keep mulch in place
  • Spreading fresh pine needles or mulch

This is best done in the winter because the leaves have come down and pine needles have fallen off the trees in the fall.  In other words, you are getting the best pine needles in the late fall and winter.
