Commercial & Residential

Lawn Mowing

SLC's lawn mowing service includes weekly mowing and trimming. Edging on the sidewalks and driveways is done every other week. SLC maintains the proper equipment to handle any size of both residential and commercial lawns.

Spring & Fall Clean Ups

Spring and fall are the recommended times of the year to have a general cleanup of your property. These cleanups help prepare the lawn and landscaping beds for spring and winter. Often times, customers will combine a cleanup with mulching and/or pruning.

All debris accumulated from the winter will be removed from the lawn area and flowerbeds unless otherwise instructed. Clean up can be detailed to customer’s need and wants, including preparing perennials and flowering shrubs for the spring season. 

All debris accumulated from the fall will be removed from the lawn area and flowerbeds unless otherwise instructed. Clean up can be detailed to customer’s need and wants, including removing annuals, preparing perennials and flowering shrubs for winter season. 

Small Tree & Shrub: Trimming and Pruning 

We offer shrub and small tree trimming as well as small tree pruning. Shrub trimming is performed from June to November. We trim most hedges and shrubs during the summer, although some plants are best pruned in the winter.

By trimming them back they'll grow more slowly. Remember, the slower a shrub grows, the thicker and better it will look! A combination of pruning and trimming will be performed at customer’s request. 

This process varies in accordance with the customers desire or the look the customer wants maintained. Trimming will be done to maintain a neat plant shape. Pruning will be done for the regeneration of new plant development.

Over Seeding 

Over seeding is the spreading of grass seed directly over existing turf. It’s an easy way to fill in bare spots, improve the density of the lawn, and enhance your lawns color. We use a premium grass seed and depending on the area, we use a sunny, sun/shade, or shady seed mix. By using premium seed, we are increasing the seed germination rate and reducing the amount of inert/weed seeds.

New Sod Installation

Repair or replacement of larger turf areas. Due to the severe winter season, this may be necessary to repair/enhance lawn to prevent weeds and crabgrass from filling in bare spots and weak areas.

Landscape Consultation & Design

We can draw a design, suggest plantings (single or multiple), show ways to incorporate landscape lighting for cosmetic and safety purposes, and/or put together a weekly, monthly, or seasonal maintenance package. A fee may apply for consultation, and/or landscape design services.

Gutter Cleaning & Modification

Clean gutters free of leaves and other debris to prevent the following: Water damage: Properly functioning gutters direct water away from the structure of your home, but clogged gutters can cause water to collect around your foundation and, as a result, seep into your basement.

Ice dams: your clogged gutters can cause ice dams. An ice dam is when water flows over the edges of a clogged gutter and then freezes, forcing water into your home. Ice dams can become so heavy they can rip the gutter right off your home, resulting in costly repair bills.

Vermin: Clogged gutters can become an inviting home to carpenter ants, mosquitoes and even rodents. And, if these pests are living in your gutters, there's a chance they'll make their way into your home.

We recommend cleaning them in the spring and fall. In addition, we can add down spout extensions, or install French drains to re-route water away from home. We can also add rain barrels to help conserve water where it can be used to water landscape or lawn areas.

Mulching

We suggest at least a 2” layer. Besides being aesthetically pleasing to the eye, mulch has many benefits, including the reduction of weeds and maintaining moisture for plants and shrubs.

Monthly Bed Maintenance

Includes weeding and edging established beds. After weeding we suggest applying a granular pre-emergent herbicide to help limit weed germination.

Annual Flower Plantings

Add vibrant color to your landscape year around by installing sunny and shade annuals to beds and flowerpots.
