Whether you have residential or commercial property,
Earthscapes, Inc. will be glad to help provide any or

Spring & Fall
Mowing includes cutting, bagging if requested. String
trimming around planting beds, trees, walkways, and
driveways. Blow grass clippings off sidewalks and
driveways. Our mowing services can be done weekly or
De-thatching helps remove thatch or grass clippings from
your lawn. If the clippings can not decompose fast
enough then thatch builds up on the surface. This can
stunt growth and result in a thinner lawn. De-thatching
helps remove the cut, decaying layer of dead grass.

Aeration is a process to improve air exchange between
soil and atmosphere by removing small plugs of thatch
and soil. Aeration also enhances soil water and
fertilizer up take, reduces soil compaction and water
run off or puddling. This improving resiliency and
cushioning. Aeration leaves little plugs of thatch and
soil. These break down after a week or two.

Fertilizing is essential to a healthy lawn. Fertilizing
not only helps a lawn during the growing season but in
the winter as well. Earthscapes, Inc. uses a 5 step

and strong roots. Contains slow release nitrogen.

Pruning is an important part of maintaining and
extending a plants life. Pruning actually helps a
plant to grow. Pruning vigorates growth, removes
dead or diseased tissue and allows more air to
circulate through the plant.
Time of pruning is an important factor to consider.
Spring flowering plants should be pruned after they
bloom. The flower buds are formed the previous fall,
therefore should not be pruned after that time.
Fall Clean Ups
Spring & Fall are important times of the year to
clean out those planting beds!
Spring – Before bulbs begin to push up, there can be
a lot of debris left over from winter. Remove any
leaves that are remaining, cut back any perennials
to allow for new growth. It is also a good time to
top dress the beds with bark mulch.
Fall – Before the snow flies, clean up & remove
fallen leaves and debris before they pile up too
deep. Also cut back any perennials that you may
need. Doing some of this now makes the task in the
Spring a little easier.
Does your sidewalk and driveway look narrower than
before? Grass will start to creep onto your walks
and drive. The solution is to power edge which cuts
off that unwanted grass.
