Maintaining vibrant, ever-changing perennials and annuals, shrubs, vines, herbs and vegetables is a blissful labor of love for avid gardeners. For others, not so much. If you have limited time, travel a lot or just don’t “dig” gardening as much as you enjoy looking at the garden, you might consider having us handle your landscape maintenance for you. After all, even the lowest of low-maintenance landscapes will need some upkeep.
Art of Stone Gardening will develop a landscape maintenance plan tailored to your particular property and the specific plant varieties on it, and we’ll care for your plants as if they were our own. A low-maintenance landscape may only require minimal seasonal clean-up and mulching. Larger landscaped areas with more elaborate or fussy plantings will need more frequent attention to continue to be a source of enjoyment or to provide curb appeal.
Our maintenance services can include: pruning and shaping trees and shrubs by a ISA Certified Arborist; weed control; mulching; clean-up of garden debris; even dividing perennials and seasonal re-planting of annuals.
We can also help turn things around if your home’s landscape has been unloved for a while and needs to be revitalized. Overgrown or sick shrubs or trees may need hard pruning or other expert care, or they may need to be removed. Diseased or insect-infested plants may need to be replaced. And we can identify the sources of landscape problems that caused your plants to decline in the first place. We’ll be happy to consult with you to determine what can be saved and what needs to be overhauled to achieve your goals.
