Our Landscaping Services

Weekly Mowing

On a weekly basis, we mow your lawn weekly for optimum health and appearance. All obstacles and edges are string trimmed. To finish all paved areas are blown off. Weather permitting, we start mowing end of april/beginning of May.


We weed all of the beds and remove any additional buildup of mulch necessary. We then give all of the beds a fresh edge creating a clean separation from the lawn. This makes everything look its best, while also being easy to maintain in the future.

Spring Clean ups

Beds are all cleaned and raked by hand. The lawn is then blown off using leaf blowers to remove any leaves and sticks from the winter. We finish with a tine rake of the lawn which is similar to a heavy raking/light dethatch.


We can keep your lawn looking great with fertilizing. This is a 7 step program; 5 fertilizer, 1 grub and 1 lime application.

Fall Visits

Fall cleanups consist of removing all the leaves from your property. This is typically done in two visits because we always expect that more leaves will fall. After the additional leaves have fallen, our second visit will be the most thorough.


Keep oxygen and water flowing through your soil properly. We'll extract cores from your lawn to keep everything healthy.

Bed Maintenance

This consists of us coming to your property on a bi-weekly schedule and weeding, fertilizing, and edging your beds so they look great.

Annual Flowers

Need an extra pop of color in your lawn? We can plant a variety of annuals in your flower beds that work great with your property.


Our team can help your trees and shrubs fight infestations, insects, and diseases with proper pruning.

Very thorough job. Crew is always cordial and fast. I recommend with highest recommendations!

I really thought you guys did a great job with the hedge trimming ! And to be honest, the thing I like most is your responsiveness and honesty. You’ve told me when to spend money and when not to – I appreciate that.

Essential Landscapes has been our landscape company for several years now and we couldn’t be more pleased. They are professional and meticulous in the service they provide. It is always easy to contact Tim when we have a question and he is prompt with his reply. They offer several services that fit our needs. We especially love that they can do periodic weeding for us when we get behind. We highly recommend them and believe they are “essential” to a beautiful yard!

I would highly recommend Tim and Essential Landscapes. Homeowners are some of the most demanding clients, especially when it comes to their property. Tim has been my landscaper for 4 or 5 years now and has always been patient with my requests. His work ethic is honesty with your wallet and quality care of your property. He is always available by phone and will walk through with you to make sure you are comfortable. You will have confidence that he cares for your lawn as much as you do.
