Seasonal Garden Care

Ask The Experts

We offer garden maintenance programs to care for your landscape and provide seasonal plantings that have colorful possibilities! Our residential and commercial clients enjoy our lush and vibrant displays in pots, containers and annual planting beds. These can be transitioned to fall and winter arrangements, as well.

We recommend yearly maintenance plans for optimum care of your gardens, however horticultural services may be purchased individually throughout the year. The ideal timeline is to have us service your gardens at least once a month and for complete care, twice a month. Services can be estimated in advance and are purchased on an hourly basis, plus materials & debris disposal.

Call and ask for Katie Casci, our Garden Care Leader and Estimator. Schedule a time to meet at your home to discuss your needs. Get to know Katie here.

Trimming and Pruning Methods

pruning-bushOur trimming methods involve mostly hand pruning and shearing. We prune out dead or diseased branches, thin out old woody stalks to create more light openings for the younger/heather stalks, and shear off an adequate amount of foliage to create the desired shape. Each plant has different needs. We prefer not to prune shrubs into “hockey puck shapes”, since it does not follow the natural growth pattern of most plants.

Trimming is completed in accordance to the month and plants needs. In the Spring we cut down appropriate shrubs that will quickly rejuvenate for the summer. After the lilacs are done blooming we prune the old blossoms off to allow for next years buds to begin growth. In mid summer the spireas are trimmed after the blossoms are spent. Evergreens are pruned mid summer in a way appropriate to the variety. As you can see there are many factors involving the correct timing of trimming. We will recommend the best times for us to do your trimming according to your plant specimens.

Weeding

weeding-stock-photoIt’s usually the best scenario to have us maintain your gardens on a bi-monthly basis to consistently stay ahead of the weeds. As the summer progresses it will take less and less time to maintain your gardens because of the proper care they’ve received early on.

We are also willing to tackle a garden with more extreme weeds. If you just need a few hours or a whole day to get your garden back on track, our garden care service is a good fit. Sometimes a person just needs a little help to catch up. Be assured that your garden will be transformed by the time we’re done with it.
