Keep Your Shrubs Looking Beautiful All Season Long!

Shrub trimming should be done twice per season on average after the first round of growth in June/July and late in the season when the shrub is done growing for the season usually around September or October.

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.

Keeping your bushes trimmed can help on both sides of the fence when comes to security, it can be used to create a nice privacy barrier for your backyard with a nice arborvitae hedge.  Pruning/trimming can also be used to your advantage to keep views from your windows unobstructed and give you clear line of sight to all areas of your property.

Lawn Fertilization and Weed Control

Nitrogen Lawn Fertilizer and Weed Control

        The constant rain of April is giving way to the first wave of Crab Grass! This means it’s about time to start fertilizing your lawn! If you want greener grass in your lawn, a nitrogen based fertilizer is your first step. Total Lawn Care uses Nitrogen fertilizer because of it’s life-giving properties, as Nitrogen is a vital element in turf’s growth process. Too much Nitrogen fertilizer, however, can seep through groundwater and into Michigan’s waterways! This is why we recommend having a MDA Certified Spray Technician apply ANY chemicals or fertilizer to your lawn. Total Lawn Care Inc. is a Healthy Lawn Care Provider for Watershed Protection, and we care about our environment!

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.
