SPRING CLEAN UP

FALL CLEAN UP

Spring has finally sprung, but winter left a mess
To start the season off with a bang and get your property in shape, we like to do a thorough once over of your property. We rake compacted beds, remove debris that may have built up over the winter, power blow and hand rake so April showers can get the May flowers popping.

A comprehensive fall clean-up sets the stage for winter
We like to do a thorough rake, vacuum and removal of fall’s glory after it’s hit the decks. We use state of the art equipment to suck up, and recycle what Mother Nature leaves behind. This service is completed after the last mowing of the season, and before November 15th.

Full fall cleanup includes:
Blow leaves and debris from landscaping
Mow lawn
Bag and all organic matter

      LAWNCARE
 

We Try To Vary Your Mowing Pattern

Each time we mow, do it in a different direction. If you always cut your lawn using the same pattern, your grass learns which direction it’s being cut from and begins to lean in the direction you mow. By varying the mowing pattern, we help avoid forming ruts in the lawn. Plus, grass will stand up nice and tall since it will be mowed from all different directions.

Also we set our mower at 3 1/2" high this is a  preferred setting for grass type and only cut the top 1/3 of the grass blades at any one time, even if this means you have to mow again after several days. This is because longer grass blades can grow and support more roots and develop a deeper root system that is better able to find water and nutrients in the soil. Cutting too aggressively, also called “scalping the lawn,” forces grass plants to focus their energy on regrowing their blades, not deepening their roots. Scalping the lawn also makes your lawn more prone to weeds. Taller grass blades shade the soil and keep it cooler, helping prevent weed seeds from sprouting. Plus, there are lifestyle benefits: Taller grass is softer to walk on and helps cushion falls better than short grass.

A full spring cleanup includes:

Mow lawn
Bag and all organic matter
