For a better landscape……
A Full Maintenance Program with Johnson’s Landscaping Service, Inc.
Are you able to spend enough time with your family? Can you pursue your weekend hobbies? Play a little more golf? Are you out there pulling the weeds yourself? Not sure if you’re pruning the right branches at the right time of year? Are you doing more damage than good to your plants, trees, and shrubs? Do you sometimes wonder if your home’s appearance could be enhanced? Is the value of your home what it could be with a fully manicured look?
Did you know that your landscape…. Enhances the first impression received by your friends and neighbors when they visit your home? Represents a financial asset and increases property value as much as 15%?
Is an extension of your living space that should be a source of enjoyment for you and your family?
Johnson’s Landscaping Service, Inc. has been caring for properties in the Bethesda, Chevy Chase, and Northwest Washington, DC area for over 50 years. To meet the needs of our most particular clients, our program includes complete care for your yard. Our maintenance staff will care for your property from Spring through the Fall. In the Spring, we will begin with a complete clean up of your yard.
1) Rake up all the winter’s debris from under the shrubs and trees and off the lawn.
2) Edge and prepare all the planting beds and cover them with a 2—3 inch layer of double shredded hardwood mulch.
3) Dethatch, rake, fertilize, and seed your lawn.
4) Prune your shrubs and trees as needed for the time of year.
After the initial clean up, we will next visit your property on a regular basis. Our crews cut the grass, edge the curbs, walks, and driveway. We weed the plant beds weekly, and we do regular fine pruning of shrubs. This gives your home a noteworthy appearance throughout the year.
In addition to the regular maintenance, we will fertilize at scheduled intervals and seed at the optimum times of the year. All you have to do is water the lawn and plantings as needed.
For those clients interested in adding a more aggressive, organic, and “green” approach to lawn care, we do offer an ad-ditional organic lawn care package. For more information about our organic lawn care package, click here.
In the Fall, we clear the leaves off the lawn in order to protect the newly seeded grass. In late November and early December, the whole property is cleaned and mulched so your home looks its best for the holidays.
