Total Lawn Care’s 21st Season!

If you are considering an enhancement or renovation project this year, please help us to give your project preference by calling early to plan with one of our staff professionals.

Updates as we prepare for our 21st season!

Lower fuel prices mean that there will be NO price increases to the services contracts and we will not apply fuel surcharges unless gas rises above $3.20/gal. We continue to explore viable, alternative fuel sources and new technologies to help keep prices down and lower fuel emissions.

Phase 2 of the landscape installation project at Mahle’s World Headquarters is complete and was awarded The Farmington Hills Beautification Award for the ‘creation of a beautiful place to work and live’.

We took in over 750 tons of compostable material and processed it into rich, fertile and repurposed compost, which was thereby diverted from our landfills.

We remain steadfastly committed to the promotion of The Healthy Lawn Care Program. See enclosed program details.

There are four MGIA/Professional Land Care Landscape Certified Technicians, one International Society of Arboriculture Certified Arborist and one Michigan Nursery and Landscape Certified Green Industry Professional on staff this season and we continue to promote furthering education, training and development for all of our team members.
Looking forward to seeing you this spring!!

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.
