Landscape Maintenance

Customized maintenance plans to keep your property looking its best and preserve the health of your soil and plants.

A maintenance program for your gardens will be tailored just for you. Generally, the program will include weekly monitoring and care including pinching, deadheading, and cutting back. Such practices are required to maximize flower blooming, vibrant color, and growth. For annual flowers, the care includes frequent fertilization. Our technicians are trained to national standards in order to provide the best care for your property. Our practices are honed and refined to leave the smallest footprint possible on the environment and your home.

Greener by Design is a licensed (through the New York State Department of Environmental Control) applicator of tree and shrub treatments. We use no toxic chemicals, a well cared for garden should have minimal disease and insect infestations. When the right plant is selected for the right spot, and its needs are met, stress and vulnerability become mitigated.

Two-Year Complete Care© Warranty

We warranty all new plants for two years. No other company supplies this warranty. We will even take over other companies’ plant warranties if conditions and materials are met first.

Healthy plants and gardens start with healthy soil, the right amount of water, light and air.

We test soil and amend it to the needs of the plants.

What is Healthy Soil?

Soil culture is the basis for healthy plants. Many people think of soil as having a sponge-like capacity where moisture and nutrients are stored. In fact, much like our digestive systems, healthy soil is an organism that takes organic materials and transforms them into a form that plants can absorb. Different plants utilize different soil cultures. Soil testing is the first step to knowing what to feed the organism or adjust it to the needs of the plants. We use organic fertilizer and compost to insure healthy soil for a healthy garden.

We offer the highest level of soil testing, fertilization, turf grass maintenance, aeration, seeding, and sodding.

We also offer the following Property Cleanup services:

Spring Clean-up

Includes cleaning flower beds, dethatching lawns, removing fallen leaves and any dead herbaceous material to avoid potential fungus and molds. We cultivate flower beds, apply pre-emergent weed prevention & garden fertilization, and prepare beds for mulch installation. Work scheduled to begin mid-March (weather permitting).

Fall Leaf Removal

Includes removal of leaves and dead wood from lawn & garden beds, hardscapes, and roadways surrounding the property. Removal of leaves is important because it prevents the formation of fungus and overwintering insects. All debris are collected, removed from property, and disposed of offsite. Work scheduled to begin early November.
