The 2017 landscape season is fast approaching. If you would like a price quote for any of our service, please email the office at email@example.com 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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
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 email@example.com.
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.
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.

Summer has arrived and along with hot weather comes dry conditions. To ensure your lawn and planting beds are getting enough water and to make sure the irrigation heads are aligned and working correctly, Greener Image Landscaping recommends a mid-season irrigation system tune-up. The irrigation technician will run your system to make sure it is operating properly and adjust the zone times as needed to help any dry areas. If you are noticing dry areas of grass or plants that seem to need more water, please call Marlis in the office at 508-495-1181, to schedule a property visit from the irrigation department.
If you do not have an irrigation system and have questions about installing an automatic irrigation system, call us to answer any questions and schedule a site visit.
Mid summer also means the shrubs generally need pruning. Look at the planting beds and let us know if you need shrub pruning.
Now is also the best time to think about fall plantings and fall seasonal color for your planting beds. Greener Image is currently scheduling fall planting for September. Call Josh in the office at 508-495-1181, for any new planting ideas or to upgrade or change current planting beds.
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.
