Yes, we hold all the necessary State Licenses for New York. We are also fully insured.
Wherever and whenever we can we recycle the clippings back to the turf as grass blades, and leaves being 80% water and nutrients, are the very best compost for building long-term highly organic soil. We only catch when an area is too small or we may get too many clippings in gardens. If we choose not to catch your grass clippings, be assured even if we have to do a double cut based on a 7-day mowing cycle, there will be no extra charge to you, and you will always have a high quality appearance.
Please let us know 7-10 days ahead and we will provide weekly service the day before your party. With 14 days notification we can also provide a detail crew service, mulch, pruning and seasonal color so that your property will look its best before your big day
The size of the mower used is based on the size of each given area of lawn. A good landscape company will have many different size mowers with deck sizes from 21″ to 52″ or larger. The right machine is as important as the qualifications of its operators.
From late April to mid October we use a 3″ mowing height. This is when your lawn is most actively growing. It is also in the recommended range of height of cut by Rutgers University, one of the worlds leading turf research Universities in the world. During early Spring and late Fall we will lower the height of cut to 2.5 to 2.75.
The right height will cause less damage to the blade of grass so the plant is under less stress. This in turn will allow for better vigor which in itself will help shade, fend off weeds and protect against insect damage.
According to appraisers and realtors, a beautifully landscaped home will sell fast and for more money.
Mulch provides the following benefits for planting when done correctly: For shrubs and ornamental trees, a mulch base of 3″-4″ is recommended. It helps to keep weeds in check, retains moisture in the soil and adds organic matter to the soil as it decays. Woody, ornamental and evergreen trees do not need or want their soil cultivated around their roots.
