Mowing & Trimming
A properly mowed lawn is more than a beautiful lawn; it’s a healthy lawn. Proper mowing discourages weed growth, helps to develop a deeper root system, and ensures greater overall health.
When you schedule mowing services with S & M EarthScapes, our crews will visit your property weekly to mow, trim and clean grass clippings from sidewalks and hardscape areas. Our crews mow to a height of just under 3 inches in the spring and 4 inches in the summer. Maintaining a taller grass height discourages weed growth and encourages deeper roots, which help your lawn to survive extended periods of drought or heat. Our crews also take care to mow your lawn in patterns perpendicular to the week prior. By mowing in alternating patterns, we can reduce compaction.
Once our crews have completed mowing, we will get to work trimming grass along all beds, sidewalks, driveways, and other hardscapes. Finally, we blow off grass clippings that may have collected in your landscape beds or hardscapes.
If you desire a cleaner and sharper line than simple string trimming can provide, you may want to consider hard surface edging.
Hard Surface Edging
Hard surface edging, the process of removing overgrown soil and turf from the perimeters of concrete edging and other materials, can give your lawn the crisp and clean look you’ve been after. Utilizing a hard edge machine, crews will cut the soil and turf along the edge of hardscapes. The machine uses a metal blade that spins at a high speed to cut through soil and roots.
While on site, the team will edge all driveways, sidewalks, and curb lines. If debris is minimal, we will blow it back into the turf to return nutrients to your soil. However, if an edge has not been maintained during the previous season, a new edge will need to be cut. This process can result in large amounts of debris, which will be removed from the property.
