  • Mowing: Turf areas are mowed weekly during the growing season and as needed during the dormant season. To preserve the environment we practice “grass-cycling” whenever possible. Cutting heights are raised to a maximum of 3” during droughts to help your grass tolerate the dry conditions.
  • Mulch: Besides making your beds neat, a defined mulch helps to protect plants from drought and cold. We suggest a spring and fall mulching.
  • Edging: Curbs, walks, and beds are edged twice monthly during the growing season. For the remainder of the year services are provided as needed.
  • Fertilization: Young shrubs and trees are fertilized with a micronutrient-balanced fertilizer in the spring and fall. This promotes deep green color vibrant vigor and winter hardiness. Lawn areas are fertilized four times per year.
  • Weed Control: Turf areas and shrub beds are treated with a pre-emergence herbicide in early spring to control summer annual grasses and broadleaf weeds. Post-emergence herbicides are used as needed in summer months to control unwanted grasses.
  • Insect and Disease Control: When necessary a licensed applicator will apply fungicides and insecticides. Color Burst Landscapes practices I.P.M. (Integrated Pest Management) on all properties to reduce the need of chemical use.
  • Shrub Pruning: Shrubs are trimmed as needed and trees may be pruned up to 15 feet above the ground. This encourages healthy growth and creates a neat appearance during the growing season.
  • Aeration and Overseeding: We contact our clients mid-summer concerning the benefits of aerating and overseeding. Fall provides the most stable climate for seeds to germinate.
  • Leaf Removal: Leaf removal from focal areas is performed on each visit during the fall with a final clean up after all leaves have fallen.
