Spring Cleanup – Time to revitalize and refresh!

We pick up debris, get rid of unsightly weeds, remove leftover leaves, and prepare your beds for mulch as part of our regular spring cleanup. We'll also be glad to perform other lawn and property maintenance – just ask for an estimate. Our clients take pride in their homes and say that our work adds value to the property and the neighborhood. We agree.

Fall Cleanup – Get ready for Old Man Winter...

Unless you love cold-weather sports and lots of snow, the end of summer comes way too fast, doesn't it? But never mind, because SMLandscaping will batten down your hatches (well, not literally) in preparation for those stark winter months. You can rely on us to blow out fallen leaves, cut down your ornamental grasses, pick up debris, take care of minor pruning, and haul everything away while you work or play.

Seth's Tips & Tricks

  • Stop weeding! Unless you really and truly like to spend your days weeding around your flowers, have us apply a commercial strength pre-emergent weed control product. You'll be amazed at how much less weeding is needed.

  • De-stress your lawn. Stay off lawns that brown out in the hottest days of summer. Those lawns will likely recover, even if it's next season. But don't mistake drought stress for insect or disease damage. In that case, ask SML to repair.

  • If your lawn has turned brown, avoid walking or playing on it as much as possible until it is no longer stressed and it has started turning back to green. Don't mistake drought stress for insect or disease damage...lawns typically recover from drought stress but may need extensive repairs from insect or disease damage.

  • Grow bigger fruits and veggies. Let us take a soil sample from your garden and send it off for testing. It's possible that a few natural amendments will do wonders for your blueberry or tomato crops.

  • Shear your sheep, not your shrubs. Save the power shearing for your sheep and ask us to prune your shrubs by hand. Yes, selective hand-pruning takes more time and effort, but you'll love the more natural look. And your shrubs will thank you.

  • Lighten up! Landscape lighting adds not only a wow effect to your property at night, but it also provides an element of security. And with low-cost LED lighting, there are no bulbs to change.

  • Be edgy. You can clean up the edge between your lawn and mulched beds if you turn your string trimmer upside down and run it along a defining line to cut off bed encroaching grass. Too difficult? Ask SML to do it instead.

  • Go easy on the mulch. If you mulch yearly, make it only about 1 inch thick. More mulch can't break down and, instead, builds up to the point where it damages plants and trees. Also, too-thick mulch can actually promote weed and mold growth.

  • Be kind to your pavers. Sealing pavers helps to intensify the color and protects them from wear and staining. We can even use sealants that give your pavers a "wet" shine when the surface is dry.
