Spring Clean-up Services
Prices start at $150.00. Call for a free estimate. These prices vary depending on your needs. Spring Clean-ups are our way of saying that we are “tired of winter and ready for everything to green up for summer”.
Spring Clean-ups include: blowing out your flower/shrub beds, raking/blowing leaves and debris, de-thatching the lawn, mowing, and trimming. Then an application of lime and fertilizer, unless the owner requests otherwise. All leaves and grass clippings will be bagged and removed from the property for disposal unless the owner has a compost bin or if mulching was requested.
Thatch is the layer of dead grass and roots that lie between the top of the lawn grass and the soil layer itself. Thatch, if not removed, will build up and not only prevents nutrients from being absorbed into the soil but also causes some water to run off, rather than be absorbed. Removing thatch is a vital part of lawn maintenance. The need for thatching normally comes from poor watering conditions. Sometimes this is a needed service to get a property off to the right start.
Our crews will use a power rake that has three rows of tines that rotate to remove this thatch. Thatch will then be collected and disposed of off-site.
Lawn Aeration Services
Price starts at $90.00 depending on the size of property and if plugs are to be picked up and removed. Call for free estimate. This service is available during spring, summer, or fall.
Aeration is the process of breaking up compacted soil. Our crews will use a walk behind plug aerator that pulls plugs out of the ground thereby breaking up hard compacted soil. This allows nutrients, air, and water to be readily absorbed into the grass root system, thereby producing a much healthier lawn. These plugs can be removed or left to decompose and provide nutrients back into your lawn (recommended). This is a key part of how we create and maintain a healthy yard.
