The following is a brief description of each of our Estate Services.
Spring & Fall Clean-ups
Spring Clean-ups are always performed entirely on the same day. Fall Clean-ups can be done in a single day(s) or as part of a weekly gardening service contract schedule.
Clean ups can include; leaf removal, disposal (if required), water garden winterization and cleaning, selective tree and shrub pruning, cutting herbaeceous perennials to the ground, new plantings, winter lawn fertilization, mulching, landscape repairs, annual flowers planting or remove, protecting non-hardy plants, bulb planting, dividing perennials (should be done before mid October), outdoor furniture storage and tarping, boat removal/delivery, vegetable garden tilling.
Lawn mowing is performed on a weekly or ten day contract basis. We do not bag and remove grass from accounts with 10 day mowing cycles. To determine the cost of mowing, we will bill you hourly for the first mowing. Following the first mowing we will give you a seasonal contract price based on mowing time, trimming time and amount of bags of clippings disposed of on each mowing day. We charge $3.00/bag for clippings disposal. If you have a disposal location on site, there is no charge for bagging.
We provide garden maintenance on an annual contract basis. The contract can be on a weekly, bi-weekly or monthly schedule. The gardening service can include any or all of the following service;
