MOWING & TRIMMING MAINTENANCE
Our Mowing Maintenance program is is very comprehensive and is limited to only certain areas within Sarasota and Bradenton. Mowing the grass; edging the sidewalks, driveways and flower beds; string trimming; and blowing debris off hard surfaces will be done approximately 40 times per year. During the summer months service will be weekly and during the winter months service will be bi-weekly.
Bushes, shrubs, small trees palm trees under 12 feet in height will be trimmed on a regular basis, usually once every 5-6 weeks. Trimming is done using general guidlines set forth by the Florida Department of Agriculture. However, special trimming requests can be made. Trimming hedges over 6 feet in height usually cost extra. Staking trees can be done by the mow crew and usually cost a litlle extra just to cover the costs. Weed control in flowerbeds will be done on a reqular basis, usually once a week if the weather is permitting. We hand pull and use a variety of chemicals to control weeds. Our mowers use mulching decks that return the nutrient back in to the soil reducing the need for extensive nitrogen. Side discharge mowers tend to fill the flowerbeds with unsightly grass clippings and unwanted weed seeds.
We recycle around 50,000 compacted cubic feet of material per year into compost that is used by a third party vendor to create compost.
Equipment We Use
We use state-of-the-art commercial Exmark and Wright Mowers with Mulching blades and mower decks. This pulverizes the cliggings and puts them back into the soil for added nutrients for the turf. Mulching decks also help eliminate shooting the grass clippings into the flowerbeds.
Our trimmers, edges and blowers are made by Stihl. These machines are also top of the line, designed to withstand the rigors of commercial lawn care and the same time taking into consideration minimal carbon and noise polution.
