Sunrise offers a range of garden maintenance services for retaining the health and beauty of your McLean landscape. Our Spring and Fall Cleanup services will help you with the maintenance of your landscape. These services may include mulching, edging, aeration, or overseeding. We also offer horticultural pruning as well as lawn care. All of these garden maintenance services can be customized to meet your individual needs as a garden maintenance customer.
Keeping your property green and well-nourished is something our lawn technicians excel at. Aside from regular mowing, your lawn will require periodic care in the form of fertilization, and disease and weed control at different times during the growing season. We also provide lawn renovation which includes top dressing, reseeding and slit-seeding. Our IPM practices prevent grubs from moving in. Core aeration promotes good soil structure and liming, applied in the form of pellets, ensures that pH levels are acceptable for plant nutrient uptake. Let us help you with your McLean garden maintenance so that you can relax and simply enjoy it in all its verdant luxuriance.
Spring cleaning in the McLean garden is a time for preparing planting beds. Soil and mulch need to be turned over to maintain soil structure, landscape edging needs to be re-established, bulbs transplanted, grasses and perennials cut back. Lawns need to be cleared of leaves and other debris scattered by the winds of winter. And while spring may be a time for renewal, fall is a time to get things in order before the onset of the dormant season. This means that leaves need to be cleaned up, plants cutback, and bulbs planted for the following year.
Cherry trees blossom in March yet Crape Myrtles don’t flower until summer. This is because each species has a different accumulated light threshold (think internal clock) which triggers it to start budding and growing
leaves and branches. As a result of these different triggering times, each species starts growing at different times of the year. Plants also differ in the speed of their growth and in their branching patterns. Pruning, therefore, is a tailored process and not a one-time event. Our horticultural experts are carefully trained to prune trees and shrubs according to advanced pruning techniques and with the uniqueness of each species in mind.
Our garden maintenance services can include garden visits. Signing up for this service, which includes twice monthly visits, will keep your McLean landscape pristine year round. Issues or problems such as weed control and disease can be treated on the spot before they become out of control or costly. Ornamental trees, shrubs and groundcover will be pruned or deadheaded as necessary. Hard surfaces, like patios and terraces and parking lots, will be blown free of leaves and debris. This high-level attention removes the tedium and hassle of managing your landscape and gives you time to enjoy it.
Just like people, trees and ornamental shrubs need a little bit of sculpting to look their best. Fertilizer, applied to the roots at strategic times of the year, builds up food reserves. Pruning needs to be selective and species-specific so that flowering is maximized and plant structure is respected and enhanced.
Sometimes pests become an obstacle to plant health. IPM (Integrated Pest Management) is the method used by Sunrise to control pests in an environmentally responsible way. Using knowledge of the life cycle of the perpetrating party (be it an insect, weed or rodent) and combined with a predetermined threshold at which pests become a problem (a single pest does not always warrant extermination) we can ensure pesticides are not over-used or used needlessly.
In addition to our Landscape Management Services, Sunrise also specializes in Landscape Design. We design and build hardscape and structures, gardens, water features and landscape lighting to enhance your entire landscape.
