I’m looking to have a bit of yard work done and am needing a recommendation. Here’s the deal: we have a lot of plants/bulbs etc. that I don’t want destroyed by someone who thinks it’s all weeds (because there are a lot of those, too). So I want to go with someone who knows a bit about what they’re doing. At the same time, I don’t need like a full-blown “arborist” per se, as this is all pretty easy stuff (pruning hedges, weeding, mowing/edging, etc.) We just want kind of an end-of-summer blitz and clean up.
Anyone have any good companies/people to recommend? Does this fall under “lawn care” companies scope? Or…what exactly should I be looking for?September 3, 2014 at 6:20 pm #812947
How large is your yard/garden? My friend/gardener would be great, but she’s pretty busy and can’t always fit one-time jobs in the schedule. Any way, I’ll ask and let you know.
I would look for “full-service maintenance” or “gardener” rather than “lawn care,” but that’s probably not much of a distinction. Northwest Botanicals is a good WS company, especially if you are looking to build a relationship for the ongoing health/maintenance of your garden. (Maybe not so much if you just need this one-time service.) http://www.northwestbotanicals.com/Home.html
Plant Amnesty has an arborist/gardener referral program, trained people who know/care about the integrity of plants. If you don’t get any specific reccos here, they should be able to hook you up.September 3, 2014 at 7:58 pm #812948
Another shout out for NW Botanicals. They are great to work with and very knowledgeable as well as being a local WS business!September 4, 2014 at 12:29 am #812949
Our yard is pretty large, I think the lot is around 7500 sq feet, but including house. Most of the yard is grass though, the areas with bulbs/plants are not large. Does that help, Seaopgal?
Thanks, I will look into NW Botanicals.October 10, 2014 at 3:14 am #812950
I don’t have any bulbs in the ground and could really just use some help with weeding. Does anyone have any good recommendations for just that? Thanks!October 10, 2014 at 4:01 am #812951October 10, 2014 at 10:41 am #812952
