BACK TO TOP
When it comes to landscape management, we do it all. We do installation, renovation, maintenance, irrigation, floriculture, erosion control, and hardscapes on commercial and residential properties.
We will take the time to determine a realistic price for the scope of work that you request. The cost for our work depends on your property and your unique specifications. Our goal is to give you value for your dollar–we won’t provide you with services that are not needed, nor do we want to exclude services which are required by your landscape.
We would not be in business if we relied solely on large-scale landscape projects. We have the ability to handle projects that range from installing a few shrubs to maintaining a multi-acre commercial property. Because of the size of our company, we can often offer the most cost-effective way to take care of any and all of your landscape needs.
Between account managers, cutting crews, shrub/tree pruning crews, floriculture crews, and fertilizer technicians, we are on site very often. We try to schedule your visitation on the day that you request; sometimes due to weather and holidays it might be forced to change.
It is said that spring and fall are the best times of year for the installation of plant material. Being in the south that means we can install plants almost year round. Hardscapes (i.e., retaining walls, water features, etc) can be installed and designs can be created anytime of the year. No matter what season, we would love to hear from you!
Perennial plants are those that grow and bloom in the spring, summer, or fall, then go dormant for the winter months. The benefit of perennials is that they return year after year, often times putting on a better show with each new season. Annuals, on the other hand, are plants grown for their “instant” impact, usually producing a single-season period of bloom. There are cool season annuals and warm season annuals–they should be planted accordingly.
All of our plant material, hardscape materials and labor are conditionally guaranteed with proper client care. We do a final walk-through with our clients to be sure that they are completely satisfied with the results.
A properly designed irrigation system is insurance for your landscape investment. It efficiently delivers adequate water to the plant material–allowing the plants and your entire property to look its best.
We stay busy all year long. Mulch is applied between January and April. Summer annuals are planted in May. Grass is cut, shrubs/trees are trimmed, and pesticide/herbicides are sprayed in spring, summer, and fall. Aerating and over-seeding starts in late summer. Leaf removal begins in October. Winter annuals are installed in November. Spring flowering bulbs are planted in December. All year long we do what it takes to keep our customers looking good.
Typically we plant annuals around the first of May and at the first of November; the actual date depends solely on the weather. For summer flowers the weather needs to warm up; a frost (which is different than a freeze) can kill summer flowers. For pansies and other winter annuals, the weather needs to cool down. Warm weather in the fall will make pansies “stretch” and will leave them more susceptible to damage from cold weather.
The cold of the winter in the south tends to be milder than the heat of summer. By aerating and seeding in the fall the grass seed is allowed to establish healthy roots before being subjected to the stresses of heat and drought common to our summers.
Though the grass and trees aren’t growing as readily, for our maintenance crews it is “business as usual” to make sure that your property continues to look neat throughout the winter months. Our construction crews work, too—they can schedule certain types of projects for winter. We are able to retain our staff when other companies have to lay theirs off; we have the ability to take care of your landscape needs year round.
We trim certain plants at certain times of the year because of their growth habits. Our trained personnel know when to prune the different varieties of plant material to insure that they will look their best.
