There are many details to consider in keeping your lawn and landscape in top condition. For example, most properties have a wide variety of trees, shrubs and lawn areas, along with flower and mulch beds in all sizes, shapes and kinds.
Including all of these areas in a master maintenance plan can help to make sense of it all, and will lead to a better-organized program. Plus, this usually means fewer problems and less money spent in the long run! The key is to plan for the right maintenance services at the right times.
