Spring Season 2017 is on its way!

The 2017 landscape season is fast approaching. If you would like a price quote for any of our service, please email the office at office@greenerimagelandscaping.net and schedule a property overview with Emir, Chris, or Sean. If you would like to receive the Landscape Services Form, please email your request to office@greenerimagelandscaping.net.

Irrigation work will start at the end of March or beginning of April. We will start scheduling irrigation system turn ons and irrigation service work, such as coring the heads to remove debris and soil build up or irrigation head replacement. If you have a specific date you would like the irrigation tech on your property, let us know via email at office@greenerimagelandscaping.net.

Construction crews are scheduling from late winter into early spring. If you have a project such as new walkways or a patio, or want to add a cobblestone apron on the driveway, cobblestone edging, or add a sitting wall or fire pit to an existing patio, contact Emir or Chris to get on the schedule before the spring and summer season starts.

Landscaping Planning 2017

Winter 2017 reminders for all landscape and lawn services:

If Greener Image Landscaping is providing snow removal services for your property, install plow stakes along the borders of the driveway. If you need Greener Image to install the plow stakes, call the office at 508-495-1181 ask for Sean.

This time of year and into the winter, while working around snow storms, we have a crew removing trees, brush mowing wooded areas and edges of the property, as well as up limbing trees to remove low hanging branches, especially over driveways. Please call the office at 508-495-1181 to schedule an estimate for tree and limb clean up.

Now is also the time to start planning for landscape projects for the Spring of 2017. Any time between now and April, Emir, Chris S., Chris M., or Sean can visit your property and give you construction, landscape, and lawn ideas.

Greener Image is offering garage and basement clean up services for the next few months. Our crew will properly dispose of anything you want to get rid off at the dump. Please call the office at 508-495-1181 to speak to Emir, Chris or Sean with any questions regarding dump run service.

Irrigation Winterization + Fall Clean Up

Irrigation System Winterization

It’s time to make sure your irrigation system winterizing is scheduled. Call our office at: 508-495-1181 to schedule.

Fall landscaping clean ups starts mid November.

If you are planning holiday festivities and would like to make sure your property is cleaned of leaves and debris, call the office at 508-495-1181 to schedule a date.

Gutters should be cleaned prior to winter. Build up of leaves and debris in your gutters can cause standing rain water which will freeze, and can lead to an ice dam which allows water to back up into the house at the gutter line. The gutters can be cleaned at the same time of the fall clean-up.

Protection for all evergreens and other shrubs that hold their leaves year round is an application of trans film. Trans Film applications cover the shrubbery, can not be seen and protects the plants from winter damage. Deep root feeding for shrubs is done this time of year, as well as tree spraying to eradicate the caterpillar eggs that will lead to winter moth.

Lawn Core Aeration and Irrigation Winterization

Lawn Core Aeration for September…

We are currently scheduling lawn core aeration for the the month of September. This is one of the better months to try to tune up your lawn. Due to shorter days coming and cooler nights, the lawns should come back from dormancy. Aeration is done at this time to help your lawn stimulate growth and with added slice seeding to fill bare spots and thicken lawn.

Fall is a great time for planting. The Spring and Summer colors have come and gone, so lets add some new plantings that bloom in the Fall. We like to call it rolling color throughout the season.

Fall is good time for final pruning. Call us to schedule a maintenance crew to come by, shape up the shrubs and up limb any ornamental trees. At the same time the crews could be weeding the flower and landscape beds too.

Irrigation turn off and winterization…

Now that the temperatures are reasonable, it is time to think about scheduling an appointment for your irrigation turn off and winterization. Keep in mind the system should run into the Fall, as the Cape Cod environment is still very dry with drought conditions.

It is very important your irrigation system is winterized properly. All water needs to be removed and back flows drained of water. Any water left in the system will freeze, creating ice, which will expand and crack whatever irrigation parts still have water in lines or heads. If this occurs, all parts will need to be replaced at additional costs in the Spring.
