Gardening / Garden Work

Whether you've got too much time on your schedule to give your garden the attention it deserves, or when you've got a project you're planning that needs some outside expertise. If you need a gardener our gardening services are the ones you'll need! General Gardening, Weeding & Pruning: When to prune is important. While it can technically be done at any time of the year, arborists recommend trimming trees in the late winter or early spring while they are dormant (i.e. not growing). This helps reduce or eliminate the amount of sap flow from the stump, allowing the tree to retain more of its nutrients.

Rotary Hoeing

We can rotary hoe your section or small block in preparation for a new lawn or large garden. Advantages of rotary hoeing The rotary hoe can be used to control weeds that emerge shortly after planting when rainfall has not been sufficient to activate pre-emergence herbicides. The rotary hoe causes very little disturbance of crop residue, thereby enhancing infiltration and preventing erosion. Herbicide use may be reduced if the hoe substitutes for chemical application. It buries little crop residue and doesn't compact or till deeply. Thus, impact on erosion and water quality issues is minimal. It can maintain crop residue coverage, break up a crusted soil, and offer weed control while limiting compaction and saving fuel or an additional herbicide treatment. So consider using your rotary hoe, or give us a call and we can do it for you.

Hedge Cutting / Hedge Trimming

New hedges should be pruned from

an early stage to establish a shape

and prevent leggy, unhealthy

growth. The amount you prune

back will depend on the type of

hedge.

Start shaping the hedge as soon as practical - a formal hedge whether new or established, should be tapered so that it is wider at the bottom than the top, ensuring the lower part will get the sunlight it needs for healthy growth. Once the hedge is established, regular maintenance will ensure it keeps healthy and neat. Hedge cutting season and the frequency of cutting depends on the species, but as a rule of thumb, formal evergreens like box hedges should be trimmed around two to three times a year during the growing season (around October to February); and some fast-growing conifers like Leylandii may need trimming more frequently to keep them in control. Do not cut conifers after the end of March. Stocky deciduous hedges like beech or hornbeam should be cut in late March, and if major trimming is required, do that in late August whilst the plant is still dormant. Always remember, it is important not to cut too early in the year so as to avoid disturbing nesting birds.

Wood Chipping

Wood Chips—The Secret to Effortless, Inexpensive Biodynamic Gardening Why wood chips? You can actually use virtually any organic material for mulch but wood chips seem to be one of the best, as they are concentrated sources of carbon that serve to feed the complex soil ecology. Typically, carbon is one of the nutrients that is far too low in the soil. Additionally, by covering the soil around your plants and/or trees with mulch, you mimic what nature does naturally, and in so doing, you effortlessly maximize the health of the soil. And soil health, as I’ve discussed in many previous articles, is the key to growing nutritious food. Actually, the effortlessness comes after you do the hard work of moving the chips to where you need them to be. But once there, over time they work their magic and virtually eliminate the most concerning garden tasks, which is weeding, watering, and fertilizing. We can supply good quality Wood chips.

Mulching

‘Mulch’ is a protective layer of material that is spread 3-6 inches deep on top of exposed soil between plants. Mulch is by far the best way to preserve the water in your soil and can be a very effective way of feeding your soil and regulating growing temperatures. Mulch can be almost anything: straw, grass clippings, corn cobs, pea gravel, chipped bricks, bark chips, leaves, peat moss, seaweed, wood ashes, sawdust and so on. Bark chips can be purchased at most garden centers. They can be a bit pricey and do not decompose very rapidly but they will preserve soil moisture and eventually help your soil – and they look awfully nice in the garden. We can supply good quality mulch delivered to your place at very reasonable prices.
