Tree & Shrub Pruning
As all plantings get bigger, they need to be pruned for both aesthetic and health reasons. When pruning shrubs, we practice both shape pruning for an exact defined look and selective hand pruning giving a more natural look. Sometimes when shrubs have been neglected during growth (very common), it is necessary to rejuvenate them through selective pruning and thinning.
Nothing sharpens the look of a landscape like fresh mulch. Besides appearance, having the right amount of mulch is critical to the health of your landscape plantings. It helps keep moisture in the ground by the plants root system, while organically decomposing over time giving nutrients back to the soil.
Ornamental Bed Weed Control
There are three methods we use to control weeds in mulch and rock beds. Hand weeding, pre-emergent herbicide treatments and post-emergent herbicide treatments all have their time and place. Most often the best way to control weeds is by using a combination of these three methods or by choosing the most appropriate based on conditions and customer needs. Non-chemical options are also available.
Pre-emergent Weed Control
This herbicide is applied to mulch and rock beds to prevent weed seeds from ever germinating. It is usually applied in the spring, but can be applied any time during the growing season. We usually only make one application per season with this service.
Post-emergent Weed Control
This herbicide is applied to existing weeds in mulch and rock beds. Depending on your demands for keeping your property weed-free, the number of applications for this service varies. We usually set up a schedule (monthly or bi-monthly) for applications to all your landscape beds.
Sidewalk, Curb, and Driveway Edging
This service defines the concrete borders of your property and gives it a clean manicured look. Turf overgrowth (both grass and soil) onto concrete is natural and can take away from the overall appearance of your lawn. Edging removes this overgrown turf and gives your lawn a crisp, clean appearance.
Spring and Fall Clean Ups
We offer full service clean ups, including removal and disposal of all your undesirable lawn refuse. At the time of clean ups, we often encourage our customers to sign up for shrub pruning and perennial bed clearing as it is a good time to prune and clear out beds. Every property is unique in its requirements for spring and fall clean ups and we will come up with a program that best suits your specific needs.
