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 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.
The end of the Fall season is approaching. One of the final steps for the year, is the final property clean-up. The crews will remove all leaves and debris from the lawn areas and landscape beds, as well as any necessary late season pruning. All perennials and annuals will be cut back or removed. Please keep in mind, if leaves are not removed from the lawn area, this will increase the chance of snow mold and will limit oxygen and sunlight exposure to the lawn.
Due to the long winter last season and large amount of snow accumulated on lawn areas, we are offering a fall fungicide application that will help prevent or at least control snow mold again this season. Please call to have Don come by and give you an estimate.
Lastly, if you choose to clean your own leaves, we can send a crew out to remove the pile of leaves. The leaves need to be left near the road so the truck and leaf vac can park near the pile. Please call Sean for scheduling and pricing.
In our News:
We were honored to be asked to volunteer our bark blower and one of our operators to the Cape Cod Upper Cape Horticulture program. The focus was to introduce the students to some new machinery. The operator himself graduated from this very program five years ago. Greener Image proudly has three students currently doing their co-op with us now.

Due to the large (historic) amount of snow, lawn areas may need extra attention. Power raking and Spring aeration are a must this year. The power raking will help remove thatch that was left from last season and lawn aeration opens up the roots to allow fertilizer, oxygen, and water to reach the roots more effectively. Aeration will allow the roots to spread.
Lawn diseases may be more prevalent this Spring season. One of our concerns this season is snow mold. Snow mold happens as snow melts and appears as a straw like patch in the grass and can either be gray or pink. These areas need to be raked to remove any existing thatch. Damage is usually not that serious, although it looks very bad when you see it. Re-seeding may be necessary to restore the health of your lawn.
First round of fertilizing will start in the next few weeks. Please call Greener Image Landscaping at 508-495-1181 for more information or any questions.
