With the arrival of spring, it’s the perfect time to spruce up and prepare your landscape for the months ahead. Our personal gardening crews have a whole roster of springtime services to get your landscape and outdoor living areas ready for spring.

Landscaping Beds

We spruce up and clean landscaping beds, removing loose branches, leaves and clutter.

Weed Removal & Treatment

The removal of weeds in planting and landscaping beds is important for the springtime growth on its way. Visible weeds are removed and treated. Additionally, we apply pre-emergent to create a barrier against future weed growth.

Shrub & Tree Spruce Up

We remove broken or damaged branches from shrubs and trees. Summer flowering shrubs, such as hydrangeas, roses, weigela and spirea are also trimmed back and prepared for their season of flowering ahead.


To clean up perennials each season, we cut back such plants as salvia, hostas, daylilies, coneflowers, catmint and lambs ear. Dead plant material from the previous growing season is removed, leaving the roots intact for future growth. We also clean up ornamental grasses and divide certain perennials at the request of the homeowner or business.


Preparation of your annual beds makes way for a fresh season of plantings. We cultivate the soil in both beds and containers, adding fresh soil if desired.
