Monthly: Drive/walk edging, the first cut of every month or prior to holidays.
Landscape care: Begins with Spring clean-up and proceeds every 5 to 6 weeks.

Special events: Let us know, and we will schedule around events and see to it that your guests envy your beautiful yard!

Additional Notes

Weather is our big variable. There are sometimes 30 cuts, sometimes 34.

Even irrigated lawns have trouble with 100 degree temparatures and will be skipped.

Other times, rain will force us to cut twice in one stop (additional charges apply).

Trim work is done by bloom season and variety, so temps and rain influence this a great deal.

Our focus is to do it when it needs to be done, not in July just because we are scheduled to be there. Likewise, the perennials and annuals are tended "as needed" to encourage blooms and healthy growth.

You'll definitely notice the difference our 5-6 annual visits make versus the 2-3 other landscapers offer. We do targeted work projects with more flexibility to the seasonal requirements.

Better care = better value to you!
