Maintenance Services

There are two parts to a successful landscape, the construction and the maintenance.  Both are equally important.  Although as a rule, we program minimum maintenance into any one of our designs, there is always the grass areas and maintaining those clean crisp lines in the landscape.  That is where our experienced crews can help.  We can make your yard look like a million bucks!

Lawn Mowing
For optimum turf health, lawns are never cut more than one-third of blade height.  We collect clippings and always keep nice, crisp, clean edges on lawn and bed areas by string trimming.  If requested, we will leave the grass clippings in a compost pile on site, otherwise we remove them from your property.

Pruning
We will prune small trees up to 12 feet off the ground.  We will also hand prune your shrubbery to maintain your desired growth patterns and shapes and forms.  This is all done while maintaining the highest horticultural practices.  Our pruning tools are sterilized after every project with alcohol so as to not spread any potential plant disease from one job to the next.  Pruning is a science and an art … and we treat it like that.

Yard Clean-Up
Whether it be the spring or the fall, generally you want to give your landscape a little boost during that time of year.  Your flower beds cleaned out, winter clutter removed from your yard in the spring or revamping the beds from a long hot summer, believe me your yard will love you for it.  We will hand edge your beds, clean your garden beds, add pine bark mulch to those beds, and fertilize your trees and shrubs.  In general, a real “spruce-up” (no pun intended).

Seasonal Color & Decorating
We call it color-scaping, but really it’s adding seasonal decorations to your landscape.  We stock a huge assortment of containers for adding some vigor to your yard. Early spring, it’s cold tolerant annual flowers.  In mid-May it’s an array of annual flowers, including Proven Winners.  Our flowers always look so great, because of both slow release and quick forms of fertilizer we use.  Early fall we decorate with mums, kale, pumpkins, corn stalks and more.  In the winter, our dedicated staff has the critical eye to make your home a showcase with balsam wreaths, swags, containers, and yes. even Christmas lights.

Lawn Fertilizing
Your lawn should be fed four times per year.  The first application should be put down in April, and the last just before the late fall sets in.  We use different types throughout the year.  Knowing just the right type of fertilizer to employ and the optimum rate of application is what makes a well fed lawn look so much better than one of those tired lawns we’ve all seen.  Is there anything more attractive in a landscape than a rich dark green lawn that is well manicured?

Mulching & Specialty Items
We use only the finest double-ground aged pine bark mulch from Maine.  It is dark brown in color, and void of any large strips or foreign items. Our pine mulch supplier only carries bark in his large trucks.  Some suppliers also use their trucks for hauling debris or trash, and some of those items are bound to make their way into your mulch…not with ours.  We also carry crushed clam shells for mulch, crushed stone in various sizes, and topsoil.  A complete line of specialty soils and mulches in the Coast of Maine line can also be seen at our garden center.
