Services We Can Provide
Pruning a tree is not a job for the weekend warrior — if the
plant is to maintain its presence in the landscape. We
provide the technical skill, education, and man power to ensure
your plant is healthy. Based on your expectations, trees
will be pruned to remove dead limbs, thin out crossing and
obtrusive limbs, and their lower crowns raised, as
needed. We will clear structures and service wires to
allow adequate clearance without injuring the plant.
Proper cuts per ANSI Standards shall always be made.
"A monkey could prune a shrub", I once heard a homeowner
say. However, does the monkey know what time of year it
is? How much of the shrub should be removed? Where

shrubs deserve a professionals touch if they are to remain
enhancing the landscape. Don't ruin another weekend (or
your shrub) and let us take care of your shrubbery properly.

topiary shaping. Applebees restaurants with apple shaped shrubs
lining the building, basswood trees turned into squares on
stems, and small shrubbery shaped into hearts — all

NO, we are not coming to fix your mattress!! The beds we refer
to, of course, are your shrub and flower beds. Good gardeners
know mulch is the way to go — to retain moisture,
control temperature, amend the soil, and add color.
Unfortunately, mulch does not last and needs to be refreshed
annually. We will deliver and spread mulch as part of
caring for your flower garden or shrub bed. We deadhead spent
blooms, pull weeds, and return in the fall to ready the beds for
winter. Leave your perrenial garden to us, whether for the entire
season, or to monitor while you are out of town.
Perhaps the most important part of our service, consultation
provides you with the information needed to plan for the future,
your landscapes' future. Building a new house? What plants are
going in the ground? Where are they to be located? What is the
soil like? We can answer all the questions you may have and
advise you on the proper steps to take to ensure a lasting
Don't know what is affecting your plant? We can also inspect,
