Each commercial lawn mowing service includes:

- Blowing grass clippings from landscaping and hard surfaces (walkways, driveways, streets, etc.)
Our mowing services begin May 1st and continue weekly through October 20th.
Fertilizing and Weed Control
Fertilizer and weed control treatments are one of the most important aspects when taking care of your lawn. Our perfectly timed fertilizing applications give your turf the proper amount of nutrients at optimal times to ensure strong roots and a lush appearance.
The weed control portion of our turf care packages prevents the invasion of pesky weeds to push out your green grass. In Minnesota’s climate zone, crabgrass is our number one invasive weed along with dandelions. Our treatments are scheduled appropriately to eradicate these weeds when they strike the hardest.

Seasonal Lawn Clean Ups
Dethatching and Spring Yard Clean Up
After old man winter’s wrath has finally subsided, it’s time to clean up your lawn and landscape. After being covered by snow for several months, debris such as trash, branches and leaves that were blowing around throughout the fall/winter will accumulate in lawn and landscape areas. Rock or mulch can fall out of your planting areas and snow plows can damage turf. Our lawn maintenance team will be there to clean it all up, dethatch your lawn and get your property ready for the growing season!
We do spring clean ups in two phases; phase 1: April 1st through April 15th (weather permitting) and phase 2: April 10th through May 15th
Leaf Removal and Fall Clean Up
When fall arrives and the leaves begin to fall in the crisp autumn air – it is beautiful to watch, but a pain to clean up. We’ll be at your property with our crews to remove the unsightly yard debris. During this process we prepare your lawn for the bitter cold winter ahead by blowing out out all the leaves, cut the turf one last time at an appropriate height to prepare it for winter and haul away the leaves, sticks and other debris to a proper disposal site.
We complete our fall leaf clean ups from October 20th and continue through November 30th.
Curb, Walkway and Driveway Edging
Create a neat expression where the turf meets pavement within your commercial landscape with curb-line, road/driveway and walkway edging. Edging brings everything together and enhances the overall look of your lawn areas. Sidewalk and curb edging is done twice per year – the 1st from April 10th through May 15th and the 2nd phase from July 1st through August 15th. For older properties in particular, lawn edging is extremely important as a preventative measure before grass and weeds start aggressively crawling over pavement.
Shrub and Hedge Trimming
Keep your trees, shrubs and hedges looking their best throughout the growing season with regular pruning and trimming. Our shrub maintenance crews are well-versed in the proper trimming and pruning techniques to ensure your plants are shaped in a manner that maintains the desired size, appearance (formal design or a natural look), maximizes flowering potential and stimulates the ability for the shrub/tree to naturally regenerate.
We trim shrubs twice per year, phase 1: May 15th through July 15th and phase 2: August 1st through September 30th.
Core Lawn Aeration
Lawn aeration is a method of mechanically creating holes into the turf to allow moisture, oxygen and nutrients to penetrate the soil. There are other methods out there such as spike aeration (holes are stabbed into the turf) but mechanically removing the cores places less pressure on the turf and soil because it removes the actual core of soil, turf and root.
During the process of core aeration, plugs are deposited onto the surface of your lawn, which breaks down over the course of a couple weeks with proper watering. As the cores break down, they provide great nutrition for the existing soil along with increasing the strength of the turf’s roots beneath the surface.
We core aerate from during late summer, from August 15th through September 30th.
