Description of Services

Landscape Design/Build:

This service ranges from site planning to the implementation and construction of detailed designs for outdoor living spaces. Including, but not limited to, plants, pergolas, patios, walks & driveways, fire pits, fireplaces, water features, retaining walls, seat walls, decks, fencing & screening, and outdoor lighting.

Turf Grass Mowing Service:

Turf height shall be cut at the discretion of The Turf Boss, LLC. Depending on rainfall, temperatures, dew, and frost the turf grass could be mowed as low as 3.25” or as tall as 5.5”. This service will alternate the mowing striping patterns, when possible, on a bi-weekly basis. This service typically ranges from 28-35 weeks out of the year (April - December). In this service we include: hand-string trimming of all mulch beds, tree rings, concrete, and other non-accessible areas to the lawn mowing equipment. Last but not least, we will blow off all the grass clippings produced, from your driveway, sidewalk, landscape areas, etc.

Eco-Friendly Turf Fertilization and Weed Control Applications:

We offer an Elite (6 apps), Premier (5 apps), and Basic (4 apps) Turf Grass Programs. EARLY SPRING-Application (#1) consists of a pre-emergent crabgrass control treatment along with a complete fertilizer application containing Nitrogen, Phosphorus, and Potassium. This application feeds the turf as well as provides season long control of crabgrass. SPRING-Application (#2) consists of additional crabgrass control and a heavy “slow release” fertilizer application containing Nitrogen, Phosphorus, and Potassium, along with a complete broadleaf weed control.  This treatment feeds the turf prior to the summer “hot season” and eliminates any broadleaf weeds that are present. SUMMER-Application (#3) consists of a preventative grub control treatment, heavy “slow release” fertilizer application containing Nitrogen, Phosphorus, and Potassium, and broadleaf weed control as needed.  This treatment is timed to effectively control grubs and give the turf a boost during the summer heat. EARLY FALL-Application (#4) consists of a heavy “slow release” fertilizer application containing Nitrogen, Phosphorus, and Potassium, along with broadleaf weed control as needed.  This treatment will help the turf to recover from the summer heat and drought stress. FALL-Application (#5) consists of a complete broadleaf weed control application.  This treatment targets hard to control perennial weeds and will eliminate any other broadleaf weeds attempting to establish in the turf. LATE FALL-Application (#6) consists of an extra heavy Nitrogen fertilizer application.  This treatment restores turf root reserves and helps to maintain its color through the winter as well as an earlier Spring “green up”.

Turf Grass Hollow Tine Core Aerification:
We usually perform this work in the fall. The service involves puncturing the turf via a coring machine. This is an important part to caring for your lawn, as it will provide access for nutrients, air, and moisture. This work is typically performed September - November, weather pending.

Pre-emergent herbicide application to all related landscape areas prior to mulching or following a mulching service to control for annual broadleaf weeds.

In addition to Landscape Bed Maintenance, this service will provide grounds cleanup to parking lot areas, sidewalks, and curbs, as well as other non-turf or landscape areas owned by the customer.

This service is typically performed on a bi-weekly basis (projected 14 weeks), but maybe performed as needed or as requested.
