Garden Cleanups and Soil Amendments

Wether your garden is out of hand or you’re simply looking for an improvement, we have you covered. We can give your gardens a reset by fully removing all weeds and digging in a nice new edge.

Compost and mulch are the most effective soil amendments to achieve a brighter and healthier garden. They create contrast, suppress weeds, release nutrients and retain moisture.

Fertilizer is another great tool, and when used correctly it can drastically improve an entire landscape. We know when and how to fertilize to get the best results.

Invasive Species Removal and Management

We love removing invasive species! We use environmentally friendly methods to ensure your Himalayan blackberries, English ivy and Scotch broom will never come back. These plants take over land and choke out native vegetation. If not dealt with quickly they can damage ecosystems and reduce property value.

We will first remove, excavate and treat the invasive species, followed by 1 to 3 subsequent visits to ensure the plants do not regrow - all of which we provide an upfront price for. We handle all sizes of removal from acres of affected area to small patches. For large patches an annual program may be necessary to completely eliminate the problem.

We are experienced in eliminating Thistle, Daphne, Holly, Hawthorne, Shiny geranium, Knotweed, Hogweed, Himalayan blackberries, English ivy, Scotch broom and Bamboo. We also offer native species restoration to return your land back to its natural state.

Grounds Maintenance and Contract Services

We take care of everything needed to produce and maintain a vibrant landscape. Maintenance contracts can be structured with a fixed or variable price. We take the time to understand our customers' needs so we can provide the best and most effective service for every situation, from simple to comprehensive maintenance.
