Lawn Services

Lawn Cutting Big Guy Landscape utilizes top notch Walker brand mowers. We completely mow and trim all grassy areas as well as place a vertical edge on all beds, patios, and walkways for a nice clean crisp look. All grass clippings created are bagged and removed from your property.

Fertilizing Each and every property is different. Therefore Big Guy Landscape can arrange for on-site -free- assessment that includes the following:  Turf Density, Grass Variety, Thatch Depth, Shade, Apparent Insects, Weeds, Turf Diseases, Square Footage of Lawn. Based on the results, a customized program of fertilization, soil conditioning, weed and pest control will be devised for your property.

Core Aeration is the removal of small cores of soil to allow air, moisture, and fertilizer to penetrate the root zone. This is extremely essential to our lawns which typically have a lot of clay present in the soil. Core Aeration should be considered two times per season - once during the early summer months, and once during the fall. If you are going to aerate only once during the season, we recommend aerating in the fall. A third aeration will not hurt, it will only help.

Lawn Dethatching Controlling thatch is one of the most important - and most overlooked - parts of lawn care. Thatch is simply the layer of dead grass, roots, and debris that accumulates between the soil surface and the green grass blades above. Over time, it forms a thick mat, hindering water and air from reaching the soil and providing an environment that can encourage pests and diseases. Dethatching can help prevent these problems. Almost every lawn needs dethatching about once a year, or whenever the thatch reaches a thickness of about 1/2 inch. Big Guy Landscape utilizes both manual and power thatching methods to achieve the desired results.

Irrigation Maintenance

Big Guy Landscape offers programs geared towards the maintenance of your existing irrigation system.

  • Spring Irrigation Turn On is a complex process to ensure irrigation systems are working correctly. The process includes checking proper coverage of the property, checking for leaks throughout the system, and setting the systems run times for the current weather conditions.
  • Mid-Season Check Up is typically performed in August and consists of a visit to your property to ensure your system is running properly, assess the system for repairs and adjust the timer depending on the current weather patterns.
  • Fall Irrigation Turn Off consists of a step by step process in which Big Guy Landscape visits the property to fully winterize the Irrigation system in order to properly survive the cold winter months ahead.

The process consists of:
