Ground Maintenance


Garden maintenance can be as simple as trimming shrubs once or twice a year and periodic weeding. However the more perennials, ground covering plants and shrubs you have will require more maintenance. Generally our most intriguing gardens we take care of require every other week weeding and selective trimming as well as flower pruning. These gardens generally need a trained professional to know what and when to cut back plant growth.

What is the yearly schedule? What months are grounds maintenance necessary?Lawn maintenance is done on a weekly basis usually between mid to end of March through October depending on weather as well as type of large trees that are on property. Oak trees hold on to their leaves till late November.

Always check with a professional or local nursery to know what plants are suited for your area. Do not depend on what you read or the Internet, this info is often wrong and misleading.
