Our Maintenance Services:

Mowing & Trimming

This service is performed as required throughout the season. During a hot, dry summer spell it may be required to skip a mowing visit or two to prevent undue stress to the grass plant. If more mowing visits are required due to a good growing season, you will not be charged for the extra visits. Your mowing contract takes this into account. Lawns will be cut shorter in the fall in preparation for winter. This is to prevent unnecessary raking of the lawn in the spring which would damage the new shoots, weaken the new growth and may also increase the incidence of turf diseases. Shorter grass for the fall also helps prevent fungal or mold growth during the winter. Should you not have the fall clean-up of lawn areas as an option in your program, the mowing season would end around mid-October. Any mowing requested beyond this time would be billed as an extra charge. We highly recommend that you include a fall clean-up as a final visit to prepare the site for winter.

Clean-Up - Spring

To clean up loose debris on lawn and beds and lightly spot rake any matted grass areas. Based on a reasonable amount of debris and damage being present. Should there be additional debris and damage beyond normal conditions (extra snow removal damage, weather related issues) it will be quoted as an additional cost. Service does not include weeding, edging or mulching of beds. We highly recommend this to avoid delays for our mowing crews.

Clean-Up - Fall

Removal of leaves and branches from lawn and bed areas by means of mowing, the use of blowers and hand raking as well as additional mowing depending on seasonal growth conditions. This includes one visit to complete the work as required. Grass areas will be cut shorter in the fall in preparation for winter. This is to prevent unnecessary raking of the lawn in the spring which would damage the new shoots, weaken the new growth and may also increase the incidence of turf diseases. Shorter grass for the fall also helps prevent fungal or mold growth during the winter. Should you not have the fall clean-up of lawn areas as an option in your program, the mowing season would end around mid-October.
