Adding landscape maintenance services to your budget is an investment in your home, saving you time and money in the long term.

Natural Pest Control and Fertilizers
If there is an eco-friendly solution to a problem in your landscape, we will choose the safest option for plants and people. Our holistic approach when caring for your yard and garden is to enhance the overall health of your landscape and prevent the need for synthetic fertilizers. We utilize slower release fertilizers, organic soil amendments, and compost. Only when necessary do we apply targeted pest and disease treatment from natural products. We also help homeowners with water conservation and plant selection that will transform your landscape into your own private natural space to relax and enjoy.
The Benefits of Soil Amendments
Use of soil amendments, especially dug into our heavy clay soils, helps to improve drainage and can aid in avoiding root problems and fungal diseases. Improved soil also helps plants absorb nutrients, resulting in thriving plants. This organic approach to maintenance gardening can be the most effective resulting in a lush and beautiful landscape.
Lawn maintenance can be a large part of our garden maintenance services. We take special care to suggest improvements to help lawn health where necessary. To maintain a healthy lawn, it is important not to cut the grass too low – only one third of the turf length should be mowed at a time. We use the very best in organic fertilizers to help the grass get all the nutrients it needs to gain that lush desired lawn growth.
Landscape Maintenance with a Sense of Place
It is essential to find the right landscape maintenance company for your yard. Natureworks understands that it is important to maintain a garden in the style that suits the architecture of the home and your tastes. We will maintain your clipped hedges and carefully shaped specimen tree with careful attention to detail. If you prefer your garden a little on the wilder side, we can cater to that. We can prune shrubs for a more natural look as well – you won’t even be able to tell that they’ve been pruned! But their health will reflect our nurturing attention to detail.
