Introduction: My service stands out because I am NOT a landscape company...we DON’T mow. We don’t require a high-priced contract from you. We are gardeners with an environmental bent; we recycle & reuse whenever possible. I have a local nurseries I use to source New Hampshire grown perennials, bushes and small trees. I only work locally in NH, the Keene/Concord/Manchester area is ideal.
We will weed, divide perennials, plant and trim small trees and bushes, and redesign an overgrown garden using the clients own plants, keeping costs to a minimum. The labor rate is $40-$45 hr/pp for weeding/cleanup and re-design, $45-50 hr/pp for pruning shrubs and small trees, and $50-55 hr/pp for a garden rescue. We really work it!!
A big part of my business is perennial garden maintenance on a weekly or bi-weekly or monthly basis. This keeps a perennial garden looking fresh, since we can deadhead and trim the plants and shrubs as they need it.
Spring and Fall clean -up is also an important part of my business . We usually start spring cleanup as soon as the snow is gone, and work fall clean-up until it snows; the end of Nov-beginning of December. We can trim shrubs and cut down spent perennials at this time, ensuring a fresh spring start!
We also lay mulch down on existing perennial/shrub beds, and either throughly weed by the root or lay landscape paper after weeding for long-lasting weed prevention. We NEVER lay mulch on existing weeds!
Pics are of mulching and gardening jobs, then two before & afters of a garden rescue/perennial installation and a stone stairway rescue. There are more pics under “recent jobs”.
I love all the aspects of gardening, but there are two types I enjoy most.
The first I call "garden rescue" for lack of a better term. Garden rescues occur when an established garden has been neglected for 2-3 or more years...it happens in less time with some invasive species like Kudzu vine or thistles or bamboo. I love a garden rescue because the transformation is stunning, both to the gardener and the homeowner. It just makes you smile!
The second is tree and bush trimming when the plant has not been pruned for years. The planning and execution of the trimming makes the plant healthier and the look is symmetrical. The before and after pics tell the story!
