Bed Mulching & Maintenance
Your landscape maintenance needs are taken care of with a spring cleanup, fall cleanup, monthly maintenance, and colorful seasonal flowers. We customize your landscape maintenance service by performing a site analysis in person and work with you to satisfy your needs.
A landscape clean up is typically performed in the spring and fall. If you have waited and it's summer or winter, we can still perform a clean up for you . A clean up includes: removing bed weeds, mulching beds, pruning bushes and flowers as needed, and removing debris.
Monthly maintenance keeps your landscape looking good all year long! We come once a month and perform a mini landscape cleanup. If you can't stand the sight of a weed, try our weekly or bi-weekly maintenance service.
If you are looking for colorful seasonal flowers, or want a bush or tree planted, we can help you choose options that work best for you. Adding seasonal color around entrances to your property, like driveways and sidewalks, can be very welcoming and visually pleasing. We even design planters for your home's entrance, porch and deck.
Edible landscapes can be fun and rewarding. Add color and interest to the landscape with an apple or pear fruit tree. If you enjoy even lower hanging fruit, add a fruiting shrub to your landscape like thorn less blackberries and blueberries.
Landscape Cleanup Consists of...
Remove Weeds...If you like picking weeds, call us and you are hired! We remove all weeds from mulched beds. Usually we remove weeds by hand, but sometimes we will burn, solarize (suffocate weeds and weed seeds for three weeks by covering them with a plastic liner) or spray them topically with a natural weed mitigating solution. No matter the method used, we keep you weed free.
Beds Mulched...What hardwood mulch do you think looks good and offers a more natural looking landscape? Pine mulch wins us over. Pine mulch often reduces the frequency of flower bed maintenance by holding weeds back and breaking up heavy soil. It even retains moisture during droughts helping to keep bushes and plants healthy. Most of the mulch we apply is in the spring to get ready for summer and in the fall (typically after leaves are removed from beds) to get ready for winter.
Compost used as mulch improves soil quality helping your bushes and flower flourish and burst with color all season long. Or we can apply compost just around bushes and flowers underneath the hardwood mulch of your choice.
Debris Removal...Before we mulch, we will remove any debris not needed in your landscape. For instance, trash blown onto your property and fallen tree branches are removed. Additionally, mulch can build up around the base of plants putting them at risk. If this occurs, we will remove the old mulch before applying new mulch.
Bush Pruning...Depending on the time of the year, certain plants and bushes need to be trimmed and pruned. Proper pruning helps keep plants healthy, blooming to their fullest capacity and prevents overcrowding in the landscape. For more information, refer to our Bush Pruning page.
Soil Fertilized...Feeding the soil with compost in turn feeds the bushes and flowers. Plants thrive from the compost mulch applied, but some may need a little extra love and care. So we apply fertilizers at certain times of the year specifically for those plant types.
Mulching is an organic and natural way to keep your beds looking healthy and lush. It also makes your overall landscape more visually appealing. Turf Clips provides mulching services that will help you be worry free when it comes to bed maintenance. We also remove weeds from existing mulch, trim bushes, add new mulch, and maintain the beds, bushes, and plants as needed.
Leaf Mulching & Removal
The best way to keep your lawn looking healthy the year round, in a completely natural and organic way, is to ask for leaf mulching services. Leaf mulching will help your lawn become more draught resistant, as the leaves will keep the soil humid even during the hotter months of the year. Mulching is a great option for lawns with few leaves, as it is far more cost efficient than leaf removal. To boot, it also helps homeowners save on irrigation costs, since the ground becomes more naturally moist.
In brief, mulching is the natural way to 'feed' nutrients into the soil beneath your lawn, without the use of synthetic fertilizers. Fallen leaves decompose in winter, creating a fertile environment for fungi and bacteria, and then feeding subterranean microbes in spring. Microbes help return nutritive substances into the ground, which, in turn, will nourish your grass, bushes, and trees.
Falling leaves are a natural sight in fall - and the best part about them is that they can be employed to the advantage of your lawn. Turf Clips can mulch the leaves to organically fertilize your lawn starting in October and going all the way into January for lawns with significant quantities of leaves.Some yards have an excessive quantity of leaves because of all the beautiful hardwood trees. When there are too many leaves to mulch efficiently, then we offer leaf removal. In this way, we can stop the leaves from choking or smothering your grass-or simply give your yard a clean, manicured appearance. We offer weekly, biweekly, and monthly service. We can also perform a one time job.
Leaf Removal - For a Clean & Healthy Lawn
Leaf removal is perfect for properties that aim for that really clean, vacuumed look for their lawns. What's more, it's also very healthy for the grass itself. Fallen leaves that are left to decompose on top of the grass in winter will keep out the sun rays and oxygen the grass needs to survive. They will encourage the emergence of weeds in spring and will ultimately smother the lawn entirely. If your property is covered in leaves in fall, Leaf Removal combined with mulching can be the most effective and cost efficient route to a thriving, richly green lawn.
Turf Clips offers Leaf Removal & Mulching Services between the months of October and January. If there are a lot of dead leaves on your lawn, we can start removing them as soon as they begin to fall, in October, and use them for mulch. Then, our technicians can return in November, December, and January, to remove the bulk of the excess leaves. You will be saving both on leaf removal, as well as on fertilization if you choose this option. The benefits of mulching have been proven by numerous scientific studies, which attest to the improved aspect of mulched lawns.
