Bed Cultivation & Spade Edging

One of the final touches on a crisp, clean landscape is cultivating and spade edging the tree, shrub, and flower beds. Cultivation of bare soil can add a manicured look to any property, and when combined with a defined spade shovel edge the look can be quite stunning.

Fertilization & Weed Control

Fertilizing your lawn is one of the best horticultural practices you can do for your lawn, however it is a tricky science to get right. At Suburban Landscaping we are experts at fertilizing lawns. Our 4 and 6 step programs are designed for every budget and horticultural need.

 

 aeration

Aeration

Aeration is the process of mechanically punching holes through the grass, thatch, roots and soil. These holes allow air and water to penetrate into the soil and reach the root level. The soil plugs that land on top of the lawn contain bacteria and fungi that help decompose organic matter like dead grass blades and thatch. As organic matter is decomposed, nutrients are returned to the soil. Therefore the soil plugs should be allowed to naturally break down on the surface of your lawn.The soil has to be moist in order for the tines of the aerator to penetrate into the soil. We recommend aerating once in the spring and once in the fall.

Insect & Disease Control

Lawn and landscape plants are not inexpensive to replace, regardless of the reason they expire. The job of our trained Applicators is to lower the chances that your lawn or plants will expire from disease or insect infestation. Our experienced crews are certified and licensed by the Illinois Department Of Agriculture and professionally trained. They also have the knowledge and skills to identify any disease or infestation your plants may contract. All of the products we use are registered by the Department of Agriculture and the Environmental Protection Agency.

 

Shrub Care

Fertilization of your shrubs is an often overlooked service that we highly recommend. Shrubs, like your lawn, require nutrients to grow and thrive. Our shrub care service can not only can fertilize your shrubs, but also treat them for disease and insect infestation as well.

 gutter cleaning

Gutter Cleaning

When trees shed their leaves, inevitably some land in the rain gutters of your home or business, clogging the down spouts and causing them to over flow. Our maintenance department can help with this nuisance, as a service we offer the removal of the leaves and other tree debris from your gutters and down spouts. We also can wash out any roof sediment or soil debris as well. 

 Leaf Clean_Up

Leaf Clean Ups

Every fall our decidious trees in the chicagoland area will defoliate and loose their leaves. These leaves are as unsightly as they are problematic. If left on the lawn, the lawn can stress and even die off. Cleaning up the leaves is only half of the work these days, the other half comes in the disposal of the leaves. Suburban Landscaping can handle both parts of the problem for you.
