*Leaf Removal is in November/December and is an available add-on to the program
Our goal is to install between 1″-2″ of fresh mulch during our spring and fall mulch applications. If you go too deep with the mulch it can damage the plant material, and if it’s too thin it won’t provide enough protection. 1″-2″ is generally accepted as standard for our area (See the USDA Plant Hardiness Map).
Spring, Fall, and One Time Cleanups include a certain amount of freshly installed mulch per your property size. If your property needs more than the allotted amount we charge $40 per additional cubic yard of mulch installed during the cleanup and will be billed upon completion of the service.
Please see allotted amounts below:
Yes, we trim all shrubs and hedges less than 12' tall. Please note that certain plants should not be trimmed prior to bloom and the crew will determine on-site if any are to be skipped.
*Most trimming is performed during your spring and fall cleanups because those are the heaviest growth seasons.
Tree trimming is not included with our cleanup services. Small tree work can be performed at an additional fee and upon request only. For larger tree work we can refer you to a tree contractor.
Spring cleanups include a pre-emergent herbicide before applying mulch: SureGuard SC Herbicide. During bed weeding we try and hand pull as many weeds as possible. We may also use Finalsan Herbicide to treat weeds. It's our goal to use as little synthetic chemicals when servicing lawn/landscapes.
You don't need to be home for the services to be performed. That's what's great about the service notifications we have in place here at A Cut Above. You'll receive an email notification before and after we perform each service, so you'll know when we're coming.
As we approach each upcoming service it's our goal to give you as much heads up as possible before we arrive. It's our goal to give you at least 1 week's notice via email notification. You'll also receive a post service email notification upon the crew wrapping up the route for the day of each visit. Aside from the email notifications, you can use our client portal to view your past and upcoming job info.
Please remove toys/hoses/etc. from the service area before each visit (A Cut Above is not responsible for damage to any man made object left in the service areas prior to service). Our crew leaders inspect the services areas before each visit but we really appreciate your help with this. Also, please unlock any gates on the property so our equipment can get through.
