Seasonal Maintenance

From sunshine and Summer showers to the first frost of Winter, your lawn and garden require some maintenance, regardless of the season. The changing seasons can undo a lot of earlier lawn care if you do not take precautions. Applying cold-weather fertilizer in the Fall can save you some work come Spring, and it is never too early to check for mole holes.

Mulching and pruning are good preventative measures to help ensure the health of your flower beds and trees. Mulching in the Spring can retain moisture, provide nutrients and help regulate soil temperature. Pruning throughout the Summer and early Fall can ensure that your bushes and trees have stronger growth next year. Whether the ground is frozen or your garden is in full bloom, our experts can help you determine the best way to preserve all the hard work you put into your lawn care and maintenance through the seasons.
