Why aren’t prices listed on your website?
Each of our installations projects and maintenance contracts are tailored specifically to the client’s needs and wishes and require measuring. There is no one-size-fits-all contract, and we meet with each client individually to discuss which services and products will be the best choices. For more information and your free estimate, contact us.
What is your payment policy?
We currently accept cash and checks and credit cards. Our normal installation procedure is 50% upon signing the contract with the remaining 50% due upon satisfactory completion. Larger projects may require draws after completed phases. For maintenance, we bill monthly after services have been completed. At the end of each month you receive an itemized invoice of completed services. Some services are outside and annualized contract; these include mulch, irrigation repairs, and more and are included on monthly invoices after completion.
Do you match competitors’ quotes?
If the quotes and specifications are comparable ‘apples to apples,’ we may be able to match. Often, a large disparity in pricing from one company to another can be due to a number of factors, some of which are not readily visible. Some of these factors may include the level of prep work to be provided or the care you are to receive during and after the project. Be wary of low bids as shortcuts are usually made, poor quality plant material is used, inferior workmanship is performed, and little to no soil amendments are made. At a minimum, you should always check licensing and qualifications as well as comparable references. The term “you get what you pay for” holds true in the landscaping service industry.
What schedule do you use for yearly lawn fertilization?
We provide a 5-part, seasonally timed program in the following order:
- Early to Mid-Spring: A slow-release fertilizer is applied to help awaken the lawn from its winter dormancy. Included in the fertilizer is a pre-emergent control for crabgrass and other annual grassy weeds.
- Mid-Spring/Early Summer: Our second application is a combination of slow and quick-release fertilizers. Micro-nutrients are added to promote deep and healthy root growth. Our first round of post-emergent broadleaf control for dandelions and other turfgrass weeds is also applied at this time.
- Summer: A summer blend fertilizer is applied with included grub control to prevent the damage of grub worms in the lawn
- Late Summer/Early Fall: Our fourth application of slow-release fertilizer with micro-nutrients promotes recovery from the summer stress of heat and drought. Our second application of broadleaf weed control is also applied with our fall application
- Late Fall: We apply a slow-release fertilizer to ensure sufficient nutrients to assist your lawn through harsh winter climates and green up early in spring.
