for your landscape
WE DON’T JUST MOW.
In Lincoln, lawn care is a broad term that can be used to describe many different services ranging from lawn mowing and lawn fertilizer, to pruning bushes and aerating. That’s why we’ve made it a dedicated point to show that when you get lawn care from Summit, you have so many more options than what you may have originally thought. Although our Premium Mowing and Premium Fertilization/Weed Control Programs are our most popular services, take a look below and see if anything else we have to offer suits your fancy!
Cleaning up your property during spring and fall is a big job. We understand that your time is valuable and limited. Leaves start dropping the same time of year you probably tend to be the busiest: between Halloween and Christmas. We can help take care of the lawn and leaves this time of year so you can focus on the rest of the seasonal hustle and bustle.
WHAT’S INCLUDED IN A CLEAN UP?
Every property is different and has different needs when it comes to spring clean up and fall clean up in Lincoln. Some homes require multiple visits each week to make sure leaves are continually cleaned up. Others may not need any plants cut back in any landscape beds. We discuss your specific needs with you to create your custom maintenance plan. In Lincoln, a standard spring clean up or fall clean up will include the following services:
- Leaves removed from lawn and landscape beds
- Cutting back of seasonal and perennial plants
- Mowing the grass
- Pruning and trimming bushes and shrubs
- Clear branches and twigs
- Haul off and disposal of all debris, leaves, and plant material
STAY OFF YOUR HANDS AND KNEES. STAY ON THE COUCH.
LINCOLN LANDSCAPE BED WEED CONTROL
One of the most common add-ons to our Mowing and Trimming Service is Landscape Bed Weed Control. When our crews show up to mow your property each week, they check all the landscape beds for weeds. Weeds are pulled or sprayed, and kept in check all year long. It’s that easy!
Believe it or not, improper pruning can ruin your plant’s health or lose an entire year’s worth of blooming/flowering cycle.
Just like treating a lawn requires a scientific understanding of soil and grass, hedge trimming requires an eye for artistic design. Our detail crew is highly trained to perform hedge trimming, pruning, shaping, and sculpting at the appropriate times of the year with professional skill.
A FOCUS ON PLANT HEALTH
At Summit Lawns, we always strive for optimal health for your lawn and landscapes. Our experts have the knowledge and education to prune correctly and in the correct season, always ensuring that your landscape looks incredible and your plants are at their healthiest. We understand that trimming incorrectly or pruning too much of the plant can kill it or cause it to grow improperly. Professional, frequent trimming is highly recommended.
For customers seeking a manicured landscape all year long, we’re able to trim many hedges, bushes, and shrubs multiple times during the season, or on an as needed basis. This guarantees continued growth, optimal health, and your best looking landscape.
MULCH IS AN EASY AND FAST WAY TO INCREASE CURB APPEAL AND PREVENT WEEDS. BUT NOT EVERYONE CONSIDERS HOW HARD IT CAN BE TO GET EVEN COVERAGE OF MULCH TO EVERY NOOK AND CRANNY AROUND THE HOUSE AND LANDSCAPE BEDS. IN LINCOLN, WE HELP YOU GET THE LOOK YOU WANT. PLUS YOU DON’T HAVE TO WORRY ABOUT ALL THE HASSLE OF SPREADING THE MULCH AND CLEANING UP THE MESS AFTERWARDS.
WHY ADD MULCH?
Adding mulch to your landscape is a great proactive way to prevent weeds in your landscape bed. Unfortunately, we often hear horror stories of Lincoln homeowners going out of their way to apply mulch to their lawn and landscape.
Two things end up happening:
- The job turns into a headache, mulch isn’t properly applied, and by the end it doesn’t look how they thought it would.
- The homeowner ends up making multiple trips to the store to buy additional tools like wheelbarrows, shovels, extra bedding, and by the time they add everything up they spent more money than they wanted to.
THE POWER OF MULCH:
Although landscape beds are always susceptible to weeds and a Landscape Bed Weed Control Program should be considered, mulch is essential to preventing a severe weed problem in your landscape beds. Bare, exposed soil is a goldmine for the seeds of weeds to take hold and begin growing. Using mulch to cover the soil can be very effective. Mulch can also be very powerful when it comes to protecting your soil. Mulch insulates your soil and acts as a shield from extreme weather conditions. Mulch also helps your soil retain water which keeps roots moist. And since mulch comes in a variety of colors, shapes, and textures, you can add a lot of character to your landscape. Our experts understand the importance of mulch when it comes to lawn and landscape care and know exactly how to properly apply mulch to your landscape.
