Pruning

January: crepe myrtles, roses, ornamental grasses, butterfly bushes, hydrangea (we need to know the variety you have so we don’t mess up blooms for the hydrangea)

Mid-April through Mid-September: Shaped plants are pruned as needed to keep a neat appearance. Some will require more than others. Your estimate will list 4 times of pruning this is an average. Some require 6 to 8 some 2 and some only 1. We will prune from the point of the health of the plant. It isn’t always best for the plant to be kept really tight. The plant needs to flush out and grow at certain times of the year. We will stop pruning mid-September to allow the plant to harden for winter. Once there is a good frost we will touch up where needed. 

Late September through October: we will cut back perennials as they brown.

 

Weeding 

February: We apply a pre-emergent at a once a year charge to help with the most troublesome summer weeds. If weather has been warm, we will spot treat any winter weeds that has popped up. Please keep in mind the products designed to burn the weed is very slow to work in cold temps. If it is real cold we won’t spray. It is a waste.

March: We will spot treat weeds if temps are warm enough. Pull weeds that are over 3 inches.

April through October: we will spot treat weeds with bi-weekly and pull weeds as they are seen over 3 inches.

Cumming Lawn Service

Complete Landscape Maintenance Program

Compilation of Services Offered to Our New Area Milton Georgia

 

Our Basic Services 

 

 

Mowing

Prior to mowing we watch for trash and tree limbs or obstructions. Turf will be completely and evenly mown at a height most suitable for the species and sites specific needs. In areas we cannot reach with the lawnmower, we will string trim the turf to the height of adjacent turf. We do not bag grass clippings. Turf grass research shows that by using proper mowers, it is better to return the clippings back to the turf for nutritional replenishment.  This process is called grass cycling and it’s a tremendous help to our environment.

 

Edging

We will edge all concrete borders such as walkways, curbs, and driveways bi-weekly during the growing season with steel blade stick edgers. Bed lines that have an established edge will also be edged during the growing season. Late March –Mid October.

Blowing and Cleanup

All concrete surfaces, driveways, curbs, walkways, patios, and decks will be blown clean of debris from the landscape maintenance process each visit. In the fall we will blow leaves out of plant bed areas, curbs, and driveways into the lawn area to be mulched with the mowers then blown into lawn and back into the bed areas and for natural fertilize. This is our normal process. Leaves will be blown into natural areas where possible otherwise they will be mulched.

 

Trash Removal

Crews will remove as much of the clippings as possible and use the mulch mowers to mulch plant pruning materials for a natural fertilize and clean up any excess the mower misses from your landscape, We police trash on site (paper, cans, glass) and recycle glass and aluminum.  We utilize your trashcan for non-recyclables and paper. Our crews utilize mulching type lawn mowers to process leaves and pine straw from trees on your site. Fall leaves are to be mulched and then placed into beds or natural areas on your property for composting.

 

The above services are included in all our packages.
