As we showcase our lawn care and snow removal services, we will bring you a yard of interest from our weekly schedule. And don’t forget, for a landscaping or snow removal price quotes, visit our contact page for more information.  We started this lawn care project with some leaf removal, especially from the mulch beds,plants, shrubs, and trees.  Old mulch removal was a “breeze”, with the use of our powerful leaf blowers. The next step is to removal all the weeds that plague humanity into insanity.  With the attention to detail of a brain surgeon, careful consideration was given to the delicate Tulips that we’re trying to make their yearly premiere as an early bloomer. Mulch beds were cleaned and edged with a garden spade. Bed edging makes a beautiful contrast between grass and garden beds. Giving your shrubs a well organized sanctuary for showing off their hard earned blooms.   The Spring Clean job isn’t complete without the first mow. With new mulching blades, and bagging accessories to pick from, we left the lawn looking like a fresh haircut from your favorite...
