Year Round Lawn Maintenance

At Mow By Design, we provide lawn maintenance services year-round. If you’re looking for a manicured landscape all year long, you’re in the right place. We’re able to mow, trim, and maintain your lawn multiple times during the season. We understand that no matter the season, your lawn needs to look presentable; this is why we can offer our maintenance services throughout the year. This will help to provide continued growth, optimal health, and your best looking landscape. See below for examples of the maintenance that we provide throughout each season:

Spring Lawn Maintenance: The Spring months are typically when we will begin mowing. We will also ensure that all beds are healthy. Spring is a prime season for adding mulch and for herbicide services as well.
Summer Lawn Maintenance: Summer months are more maintenance-based. We will mow your lawn and perform trimming services as needed.
Fall Lawn Maintenance: Due to the nature of the season, our primary focus in the fall is leaf and limb removal. We will also maintain your lawn as needed and check for any funguses that may appear (applying fungicide as needed).
Winter Lawn Maintenance: Many people have a misconception that lawn care is not necessary in the winter. However, it is especially important to make sure that your lawn is well cared for during these cold months! We also prefer to lay pine straw in the winter months.

Lawn Mowing

Lawn mowing is an essential task that needs to be done at any home with a front, back, or side yard. HOAs are getting stricter and stricter when it comes to grass height and lawn appearance, and your front lawn is often your first impression when friends and family come to visit your home. Don't you want it looking its best?

Many people try to maintain their lawns on their own. However, this can prove to be a daunting task, because high-quality results from lawn mowing take time and effort. Many people don't have the time to dedicate to maintaining their grass, which is why we're here to help! At Mow By Design, we understand that a beautifully manicured lawn is hard to achieve on your own. Our mowing and edging services are sure to have your lawn looking its best!

Mulch and Pinestraw

Mow By Design provides mulching and pine straw services year-round for both yearly replenishing and one-time needs. We offer installation, maintenance, and removal of mulched areas. We only use quality mulch and pine straw, and can help suggest types of mulch and places in your yard that would benefit from mulching and the addition of pine straw.

Keeping up with the mulch and pine straw requirements of your trees, shrubs, and flower beds is a year-round proposition. Hiring a professional lawn care company frees up your time and keeps your plants healthy. Other benefits of hiring a lawn service for installing mulch and pine straw include:

- A professional landscaper brings everything, including the mulch itself. This means no trips to the garden store or running out of straw before finishing your project.
- A landscaping company will keep mulching on schedule without you having to think about it or carve out time from your busy week.
- If problems arise with your lawn or beds, your professional will be able to advise you early on. An expert eye will nip the issue in the bud (pun intended) right away.

Trimming Services

Nothing quite sticks out in a front lawn than an overgrown hedge. Not only do they look bad, they can grow to block windows and walking paths. Trimming trees, bushes, and hedges also helps to promote a healthy growth rate. Think of it like getting your hair trimmed; bushes and hedges that go untrimmed for too long can begin to get unruly and grow in unflattering directions. Bushes and trees that grow fast need frequent trimming services.

No matter what your lawn looks like, we are here to help make it the best it's ever been! We’re able to trim hedges, bushes, and shrubs multiple times during the season, or on an as-needed basis. This will provide continued growth, optimal health, and your best looking landscape.

Leaf Removal

Nearly every type of tree begins to shed its leaves at the beginning of autumn. Trees that produce the most leaves include Sycamore, Oak, and Maple trees. Coincidentally, these are some of the more common trees in this region. Leaves begin to fall around October and continues until early January, peaking in late November.

At Mow By Design, our leaf removal process includes leaf blowing and leaf collection. It is also helpful to have an area of your yard designated for leaf collection and decay. Many homeowners designate the back portions of their backyard for this, but it could also be located in your side yard. Leaves take 6-12 months to decay and help to add nutrients back to the soil.

Limb Removal

Most people are quite shocked to see just how many limbs can fall off of a tree in any given season. Fallen limbs are typically most abundant after a storm, a windy day, or after a snowfall weighs them down.

At Mow By Design, our limb removal method involves taking limbs off-site or placing them in a designated area, much like the designated areas for leaves.
