Policies & Terms of Service

Bushes and Trees
Maintenance service includes trimming the bushes as needed to maintain a well-manicured appearance. We are not responsible for any dead plants. For tree trimming, the maintenance plan includes pruning the trees six feet from off the ground. Tree trimming and thinning more than six feet off the ground is an extra cost, please call or email to find out if we offer these services.

Maintenance service includes mowing and edging the grass at every visit. We are not responsible for any dead grass. Re-seeding and fertilizing the lawn can be done for an additional fee. Weeds found in the lawn can be treated for an additional cost and are not included in the maintenance service.

Winter Grass
Winter lawn is seeded during the month of October.  Winter lawn installation includes scalping the grass, applying perineal rye overseed along with a fertilizer treatment.  The germination period for winter seed is typically two weeks, we will make all necessary adjustments to the watering system during this time and we request that you limit the traffic on the lawn.  Depending on the thickness and thatch of your grass we may recommend de-thatching the lawn to help aid in the germination of the winter seed.   Winter lawn overseed is an additional fee and not included in the maintenance plan.  Please call or email for a free price quote.

Maintenance service includes adjusting the irrigation watering times according to the season.  We are not responsible for checking your irrigation system on a regular basis; if you need it checked, please let us know.  Any irrigation leaks or repairs will be done for an additional cost.  Broken sprinklers can be replaced or repaired at an extra cost as well.

Maintenance service includes spraying the weeds in the dirt and gravel areas at every visit. Maintenance service does not include pulling the weeds but weeds that are taller than six inches will be removed. The weed killer contains a colored dye to help us see where we are spraying; this dye will dissipate within a few days. If severe weeds problems occur we may recommend a pre-emergent treatment. Maintenance service does not include pre-emergent treatment; this is offered at an additional cost. Pre-emergent herbicides do not kill any existing weeds; it is used for preventive maintenance of weeds. Pre-emergent herbicide prevents the seed of the weed from germinating and is typically effective for up to four months. It also contains a colored dye that usually fades away on it’s own within a few days.

Pets and Gates
It is helpful if all pets can be indoors at the time of your regular maintenance service.  We are not responsible for any lost or injured pets but we do take necessary precautious to prevent this from happening.  We are extremely cautious to close gates as we enter and exist a gated area; we also tug on the gate to make sure it is secure.  Unfortunately, we cannot guarantee that a pet will not escape from the yard therefore you agree to accept our service with this in mind.
