A Breakdown of Our Spring Commercial Lawn and Landscape Management Programs

Our spring lawn maintenance and landscape management crews start preparing your property for the summer season.

In March, we focus on your flowerbeds, tree, and shrub pruning, and other landscape trimming needs, including

  • Finish cutting back all liriope and ornamental grasses.


  • Deadhead flowers as well as fertilize and weed landscape beds as needed. We only work with bed plants that we installed on your property.


  • Continue with mulch applications that include cleaning out landscaped areas of last year’s mulch, weeding, and putting down a fresh batch of mulch.
