Trimming of Shrubs
Pruning in winter—during the dormant season—invigorates many trees and shrubs because it leaves the plants with extra root and energy reserves that will support new growth on the remaining branches. Dormant-season pruning is good for you, too, because you can see the branches more clearly without leaves in the way. And it gives you a reason to go outside on mild winter days. Here is a partial list of shrubs and trees you can prune from winter until the long days of spring start sap flowing again. You'll also find here a short list of trees not to prune during winter.
Trimming of Hedges & Bushes
Leggy, woody, scraggly, spindly, yellowish, unkempt, and unsightly. No, it's not roll call for the cast of some dozing-princess fairy story. If you're like most people, it's the perfect description for that sad-looking hedge bordering your yard. Rows of thickly planted shrubs can be a handsome way to define borders and boundary lines, keep children and pets in (or out), and give birds shelter and even food. But like all shrubs, hedges need regular watering, feeding, and pruning to look their best.
Mulch is any type of material that is spread or laid over the surface of the soil as a covering. It is used to retain moisture in the soil,, keep the soil cool and make the garden bed look more attractive.
Spring and Fall Clean up
During our spring clean-up process we remove all leaves, branches and other debris that has accumulated over the course of winter around your property and landscape beds and haul away if your town requires you to do so. Spring is a time of rebirth and reawakening from a long winter's nap.
Fall Clean-Up ServiceDuring our fall clean-up process we remove all leaves, branches and other debris that has accumulated over the course of summer around your property and landscape beds and haul away if your town requires you to do so. This service is a great way for you to prepare your property for winter.As the end of the growing season approaches and prepares for winter, we need to remember the risk of disease each year and remember that most diseases are able to survive the winter within infected plant debris. Fungal material or specialized reproducing structures may exist in the soil, in fallen leaves, or in dead branches still remaining on the plant. This being said, as a professional lawn care company, let us minimize the amount of fungal material that survives the winter months by removing it from your property prior to the first snowfall of the year.
Deep cut edging around the outside of beds
The simplest and most subtle borders that effectively separate your lawn from a garden are 4-in.deep strips of steel, aluminum or plastic. They all bend easily into smooth, graceful curves and stop the spread of grass roots. However, painted aluminum and steel offer the sleekest, most refined look because they almost disappear against the grass and garden bed. The plastic types have a prominent black bulge along the top edge. All work best on fairly even terrain; if you have a lot of dips and rises, it's easier to install a paver border
Leaf removal is important for aesthetic as well as agronomic reasons. Although turf grass growth slows as the temperature drops, photosynthesis continues. The energy from this process is stored to be used the following spring. With leaves resting on your lawn, however, this process is inhibited. Basically, the leaves act as shade, blocking light that would be used in the photosynthesis process. Properly timed leaf removal will allow your lawn to breathe and to be well nourished.
