Services (click on a service to view description)

  • Routine Mowing & Trimming:
  • Routine Mowing and Trimming: We can set up a routine schedule to mow and trim your lawn. Our goal is to keep your property looking nice at all times. We use quality commercial equipment that does a fantastic job. Our team will leave your lawn with a clean, manicured, look, every time! Never will clumps of grass or any other debris be left on your lawn.
  • Spring & Fall Cleanup:
  • This includes leaf/debris removal, garden care (cutting back "gone by" perennials), driveway sweeping, light chainsaw work, etc. We are very particular about cleanups and we will do as thorough a job as humanly possible.  We also offer general yard cleanup services throughout the year.
  • Bark Mulch:
  • Installation of mulch (any color available) in existing beds, new beds, around trees/shrubs, and anywhere else it is needed. Mulch really spruces up the looks of a yard and is a great weed inhibitor!  We also install and maintain crushed rock beds.
  • Shrub Trimming/Pruning:
  • This includes trimming and/or pruning all kinds of shrubs, hedges, bushes, and small trees. We can trim hedges up to about 14 feet tall and single shrubs/bushes that are taller than that. Usually shrub trimming is done 1-2 times a year depending on the type of shrub and personal preference.
  • Landscape Installation & Plantings:
  • Although our main focus is on maintenance, and we are not professional landscape designers, we can create new mulch/garden beds, plant annuals, perennials, trees, and bushes. If you have a general idea of what you want, we can usually install it! If you want something done that is beyond our capability, we will tell you so, and refer you to someone who can help!
  • Odd Jobs/General Labor:
  • We are quite flexible and can accommodate many different work situations not listed above. We have filled an in-ground pool, installed a play area with a swing set and rubber mulch, built up lawns around newly paved driveways, hauled away un-desirable items, and much more. If you need something "out doorsy" done, there is a good chance we may be able to help!
  • Loam/Lawn Installation:
  • We can fill in low spots, fix bare spots, spot seed, or re-surface/install an entire lawn. We can either seed the conventional way, hydroseed, or lay sod.
  • Bed Maintenance:
  • Either one time or scheduled weeding of flower gardens and mulch beds.
  • Fertilizer & Weed Control:
  • We offer this only to clients whose lawns we routinely cut. We contract with another local company that specializes in fertilization & weed control. We can also provide aeration and over-seeding.
  • Snow Removal
  • Driveways and parking lots. We can also clear walkways, decks, patios, and roofs. Our top priority is keeping your property safely accessible at all times; we will never leave you stuck shoveling!
  • Dock Installation/Removal:
  • Includes installation and removal of aluminum and plastic dock systems.  We also install and remove floats and mooring balls.
  • Property Welfare Checks:
  • This service is geared mainly toward those with seasonal homes in the area. We can do a security check on your property every week or every other week. We check for break-ins, storm damage, over-loaded roofs, and to make sure the furnace is working properly (if heated). After every check we email the customer with a quick report and picture of the home. If we cannot fix the problem, we will put you in contact with someone who can!
