At Bayberry & Co. there is more to mowing, pruning and cleaning up properties. We make sure that lawns are mowed –never taking more than 1/3 of the grass blade at a time– to maintain maximum lawn health. We also mow lawns to lengths that are appropriate for the season, making them shorter in the early spring and longer towards late summer so they can withstand dryer conditions. To keep lawns looking their best we sharpen blades as often as weekly depending on use. We also employ environmentally progressive and forward thinking processes such as composted top dressings.
Our maintenance team also works closely with our gardeners and arborists, taking careful note of the general health of the property, noticing unhealthy or diseased plants, trees or grasses. This allows us to make recommendations for remediation.
When we work on a property that experiences health or fungal problems, we thoroughly wash and decontaminate our tools and mowers to reduce the chance of transferring these conditions to other properties. We also work closely with licensed professionals to cater a focused treatment that might involve organic treatments when required.
During fall cleanups we remove leaves and debris from the property and note trees and shrubs that may need pruning and then make appropriate recommendations.
We also cut back perennials, remove annuals perform a final mow and prepare the property for winter. To prepare for winter we compost and straw roses, erect deer fences and apply deterrents and tie up boxwoods and other plants that might suffer under heavy snow loads.
