Shrub trimming has a number of positive effects for the shrubs 1) by removing dead leaves and branches you make room for new growth. 2) You are able to maintain the desired height and width, or shape if you so desire,  by staying on a regular maintenance schedule with your bushes. This also helps to keep shrubs/trees from growing into the side or roof of your home/garage before it’s too late. With the recent storms we have experienced many homes were damaged unnecessarily by dead limbs.

When to Plant Perennials and Annuals!

Annual and Perennial Garden Flowers in Troy, Birmingham, Royal Oak, Bloomfield, and Rochester MIThinking about planting Annual and Perennial flowers this year? Middle to late Spring is the most opportune time to plant perennials and annuals in your garden. By planting them in mid to late Spring, you ensure that any late night frosts do not effect root growth, or plant health. You also ensure that the heat waves of summer do not effect the plant early in it’s growing cycle. Summer planting can also be very successful if proper watering is observed during the planting process.

Watering is crucial to newly planted annuals and perennials. Water the plants immediately, right after planting. Water a minimum of once a week for the first two weeks to keep plant roots moist and improve root vigor.

Garden PLants - Royal Oak, Birmingham, Troy, Bloomfield, Rochester Hills MIPerennial and Annual maintenance is fairly easy. Be sure to remove dead flowers as soon as possible to encourage new growth during spring and summer, prune off any dead tops in late winter, and apply insecticide as needed to control any pests as soon as noticed to help avoid spreading them to other plants.

Lawn Fertilization and Weed Control

Spring Is Almost Here in Metro Detroit!

It’s March Madness already, aren’t you glad you have time to sit back and watch the final four instead of raking the leaves and picking up sticks? That’s why you hired Total Lawn Care from Troy, so you can spend your weekend at Buffalo Wild Wings instead of in the cold.

Erin Go Bragh! Whoops, what do you mean it’s already the end of March? I haven’t had time to get any of my landscaping services ready for the season! Don’t Worry Total Lawn Care went into to business to handle just such a crisis, while you look forward to Cinco De Mayo, TLC will be out making sure your property is in tip top shape.

Our basic spring cleanup includes the removal of leaves and debris from grass areas and landscape beds, removal of all perennials from the previous fall, lawn cutting, bed edging and grass trimming.

For an even grander revitalization, we can also weed the beds after removing the leaves, trim the shrubs, and add mulch to give the beds a great manicured look.

We can leave the debris for city pickup if you prefer, or take it with us. All the plant material we remove from properties finds a fresh start on life. Leaves are added to a compost process at our shop. Sticks and branches are shredded and then join the leaves. All other plant debris is added to the appropriate composting stage to ensure we recycle every last bit.

We always make sure to recycle all the leaves and debris we remove.

If your lawn is already looking less than stellar, Total Lawn Care can come out and power rake dead thatch to invigorate the grass, aerate to allow important nutrients to get where they need to go, and over seed in areas that just seem to never fill themselves in.

Of course springtime also means turning on the irrigation systems and making sure those heavy plows didn’t break off any heads. It also means the first application of fertilizer in the process of making your grass look like Comerica Park’s.

Don’t be a stranger, give us a call at 248-588-1694, email us at info@totallawncareinc.com, or Click Here to use our Online Request to get more information.
