Lawn Services

"Thanks so much - I enjoy someone else doing the work!" ~Meri A., Sept. 2014

 

Spring cleanup – Lawn thatching, hand raking, blowing most garden or rock areas and driveways, vacuuming and bagging thatch, leaves, and sticks, liming and fertilizing. We use a high nitrogen fertilizer (22-11-11) and a pellet lime for an even application.

Weekly lawn mowing and trimming – Performed on specified weekday. Please realize we work rain or shine. Skipping one day because of rain will put us sixty lawns behind. It will also disrupt the following days of scheduled lawns, and their trash pickup. Grass can be dumped on customer’s compost, or bagged and left for trash pickup. We are very reliable and show up when we say we will.

Liming and fertilizing – Usually applied during spring cleanup. It can also be applied later in the season upon customer request. If you would like us to automatically apply product mid summer please let us know. Customers who apply fertilizer themselves often over do it. An extra charge may be applied to the weeks with excessive growth.

Weed control – Dandelions, clover, and plantain are the most common weeds we encounter. Upon request, these can be chemically treated. Treatment is most effective after weeds have surfaced. Treatment for moss is also available.

Fall cleanup – 95% of our customers choose to have us continue mowing on the weekly schedule into late fall. This way we cut the slower growing grass and vacuum leaves at the same time. This leaves a neat and clean looking lawn on a weekly basis. It will be billed as a weekly lawn mowing, unless there are a higher number of bags than normal and more time is involved.

Gardening - This includes spring bed preparation, planting in beds / hanging baskets, weekly weeding, fertilizing / watering, and fall cutting. Our gardening rate is $45/hr. Our gardener is very knowledgeable and a hard worker.

Additional services – We also provide edging of drive and street, aeration (plug removal), and hedge trimming. Tree trunk protectors are available upon request for a minimal install charge of $5.00. Trees larger than 4" in diameter will require an additional protector (s), at a charge of $2.50 for each additional protector. We recommend these protectors, as the trimmer string sometimes nicks the tree bark. They are light tan in color.
