Nothing makes a better first impression about your home and landscape than a healthy green lawn. In fact, in most landscapes, both residential and commercial, much of the estate is taken up by turfgrass. When planning a lawn, we need to consider the proper balance of lawn versus other landscape treatments, the benefits of lawn, and the type of turfgrass that's appropriate for your area based on soil conditions, light and climate.

Hurricane preparation should take place ideally from January through May, before the season even starts. Reducing wind resistance by thinning a tree is vital. The massive amounts of rain hurricanes bring, quickly saturates the soil and makes it very difficult for even the strongest of roots to hold on. A tree must be properly balanced based on its diameter, in order to support the root system and the weight of its trunk.
Proper pruning also is essential for tree health. The weakest part of a tree is where a limb attaches to the trunk, and if the top of the branch is too heavy it will snap at that junction. When a big rip happens, a tree generally does not have to have the capacity to heal over the damaged area and can become infected. Cuts should be made with care to prevent such damage and to insure a speedy healing process.

We believe that one of the most important components of any properly created lawn maintenance program is its fertilization program. Using fertilizer enhances grass growth and gives grass a plush texture and rich, green coloration. In order for your ground to look their best, we will determine the proper types and amounts of fertilizers to best compliment your plant material. Our programs cover turf, hedges, shrubs, flowering plants and annuals as well as trees and palms.
