Every yard is different. We take the time to listen to you and discuss what you
would like to have happen in your yard offering advice when needed or asked for.
We are flexible and can cater any job to your desires
When mulching beds we take the time to pull the weeds, clean out the leaves and cut
nice edges before we start to lay the mulch. It takes more time and costs a bit more
but it is well worth it in the long run.
I see trimming bushes as an art form and after 14 years in this business you learn
a thing or two about trimming. A bad hair cut for your bushes could be a death sentence.
- Flowering bushes should be trimmed after they bloom. Any other time of the year
means you are cutting off blooms for the next blooming season
- Azaleas should generally be trimmed before July 4th in this area.
- Other non flowering shrubs can generally be done any time. I generally recommend
late June and later as this is when the peak growing season is past.
-If you want to trim a bush back hard do it between mid September and early May.
You want to avoid burning up a bush in the hottest part of the year.
- Never trim into the hollow center of an evergreen or holly as it may not fill in
and you may end up removing the bush at a later point in time.
We have a chipper and stump grinders to make this work simple. If you have a number
of large shrubs over whelming your house or just a couple small shrubs that have
seen better days. We can make the job easy.
Fall Leaf Clean-Up
Generally we come twice to correspond to the county’s leaf collection and pile the
leaves up on the street. We have excellent blowers so we can get into bushes and
places a rake could never reach. Yes, we blow the leaves out of the bushes. Our goal
is to remove as many of the leaves from your lawn as possible.
This service is generally restricted to customers for whom we are cutting grass.
I do make some exception so it may be worth asking.
Hauling Junk to the Dump
It could be a couple of items, cleaning out the garage or even clearing an entire
house. No job is too large or small. OK I could be wrong, we do not haul elephants,
tanks or other extremely large items that you most likely do not have.
We have large trailers and can move a good deal of junk at one time.
Be aware that we do not haul hazardous items:
- Gas and oil, pesticides, oil based paints, most chemicals, old fertilizers, propane
tanks, plus other items the dump will not take. The county does have special times
and locations to drop off these items.
Other Odd Jobs
During my years in this business I have done so many different things to provide
service to my customers. From removing antennas, moving an office out of DC, changing
light bulbs, and many things I won’t mention as I do not plan to do them again.
If you have a special need or desire that I might be able to fulfill just ask. If
I can I will. If I cannot I might be able to refer you to some one who can. It never
hurts to ask
The Over Grown Yard
Don’t be ashamed just contact us. We can do wonders. Cutting back, pulling out, trimming
up, it doesn’t matter. We work miracles.
We just don’t do the design or planting. We know what we do best but we will refer
you to a great horticulturist.
