Clean ups

Remove leaves from all beds, turf, and paved areas. Cut back perennials. Weed, edge and mulch beds. Haul away debris. Can be done anytime of the year but best if done in the spring.


Removing small cores of soil from your lawn allows air, water and fertilizer to better reach the root zone. This reduces soil compaction and stimulates root growth to create a healthier, stronger lawn.

One time in September.


One time in September, usually when aeration is done.


Liming a yard helps keep the ph level of the soil neutral so the grass can grow. If the soil is to acidic the grass will struggle to grow or not grow at all. Liming yearly is usually recommended because of all the acid rain we get.

Usually done in September with the seeding, fertilization and aeration.

All our services are offered on an a la carte basis or can be packaged anyway you like.
