We have been in the nursery-landscaping business since 1990 and have built a reputation for huge selection and premium quality landscaping plants.
We will work with you one on one to create a unique design that fits your needs.
I want my landscaping to look its best.
In spring, February-May, we will cut back anything that needs to be reduced in size, thin plants as needed, perform corrective pruning, cut back perennial tops, inspect and treat for disease and insects if necessary, spray any existing weeds and apply a preventative weed treatment.
In summer, late July-August, we evaluate how the plants have grown out since the spring trimming. We generally shape plants back up to the size that we had them in the spring. We perform corrective pruning to the new growth, inspect again for disease and insects and treat if needed, spray any existing weeds, and reapply preventative weed treatment. Many of our residential customers choose to do the summer trim themselves after they have us do it the first year.
Most landscapes need re-mulched about every other year. We can provide this service as well as re-edging the landscape beds, which can be done in the spring or summer.
We also do winter tree trimming. Proper tree pruning is probably the most misunderstood landscape maintenance practice. Because trees can get quite large and are capable of living hundreds of years, a person who doesn’t know what they’re doing can cause serious permanent damage. For this reason, we offer corrective pruning services on small trees (under 20 feet).
I want my landscape investment to last.
Some homeowners seem to have a green thumb and keep their landscaping looking great, but let’s face it, we’ve all seen the “hack jobs” performed on some landscapes in the area also. Besides just looking unattractive, these landscapes aren’t going to last long either. Improper pruning practices can kill plants outright or gradually take them down. We’ve seen entire landscapes torn out in less than ten years simply because the plants were never pruned at the right time of the year. Some of the landscapes that we maintain were installed by us in the 80’s. They’ve looked great all this time, they look great today, and they’ll still look great for many years to come.
I hate doing yard work.
If you enjoy your time spent working with your landscape plants and are happy with the results, we certainly understand. We do too, and we’re always glad to offer tips and answer any questions you may have about maintaining your landscape.
--- Perhaps you enjoy doing yard work but simply don’t have the time.
--- For health reasons you just can’t get out to do it right now.
--- Small business owners sometimes tell us they don’t mind taking care of one landscape (at their home) but don’t want to take care of two.
Whatever your reason, we’d love to do the work for you. Our fees are based on time and materials required. We will gladly accept maintenance jobs on landscapes that we didn’t install if we have time in our schedule.
