residential grass

Turf/Lawn Mowing and Trimming

What makes us different?  We only use walk behind mowers on residential properties, no big ride on or zero turns.  We keep a schedule, so you know when we will be there, week after week.  We use a stick edger at drive ways and sidewalks to make sure the edge is clean and straight, no trying to balance a weed eater and getting uneven gaps.

fertilizing the lawn

Fertilization Programs

We provide a standard six application process.  Each application is timed based on current weather and soil temperature conditions.  An effort to ensure we are applying the right products at the right time to get the most benefit from each application.

Mulching Applications

We can install regular or dyed mulch and even rock coverings if you prefer.  In existing beds or in new designs.  Understanding the need to keep mulch away from tree and plant trunks to protect against disease.  Please see our mulch tips.

Spring Clean-Ups

This is what will get your yard ready for the season!  Our Spring Clean-Ups include collecting winter debris (trash, sticks etc.) from site, redefining plant bed edges and the installation of the mulch of your choice.

Post Emergent Weed Applications

Post Emergent Weed Applications

Should weeds germinate in your yard, we can apply a pelletized product or liquid weed spray application to help control their growth and/or kill them.

Late Summer Mulching

Late Summer Mulching

Similar to our Spring Clean-Up,  we redefine the plant bed edges, apply a top dressing of mulch and pull summer weeds in plant beds.  Great way to end the season as we come out of summer and keep your plant beds looking their best and prepared for winter.

Blowing leaves into pile

Leaf Removal

Got Leaves?  We can blow them into a wooded area on site, vacuum them up and completely remove them from your property or simply mulch them back into the yard.

Grass Seeds

Fall Over-Seeding

Fall is the time to re-seed your cool season Tall Fescue.  We use a premium Tall Fescue blend supported with a starter fertilizer. Get this done before Mid-October for best results.

lawn aeration


This can be done almost any-time of year.  However, it is normally completed with the fall over-seeding.  The Aeration process is designed to loosen compacted soils, allowing for more air, water and nutrients to reach the root system of your existing turf

Bag of lime

Lime Application

Think your Ph is off?  A soil test is the best way to be sure.  But, liming at a rate of 50lbs/1000 square feet is a good way to get lime into your soil.
