There are many advantages to doing complete grounds care (maintaining the grass, trees and landscapes. Snow also.) It is better for the customer (One contact, more familiar with yard and needs, if anything goes wrong you know who to call and also, efficiency) and our employees (which in turn helps the customer again by being able to have more long term, full time employees).
Weather it is spraying, fertilizing or spot treatments, we have the experience and equipment to do each job very well. We spray Commercial or residential, big or small and we know how to do it efficiently. 1776 is licensed and insured.
Mow the grass
Many people think that all we do is mow grass. As you can see there are many different services that are needed all year long. There are even different ways of mowing. In most cases weekly mowing is best. If a customer has bluegrass or Fescue turf and wants it to be nice then it is best to mow the grass one time each week to help keep it thick, healthy and looking neat. There are times in the year when we can skip a week here and there because the grass is growing slow. In Lincoln a nice lawn of bluegrass or Fescue will need mowed around 28 times a year.
Then also there are different situations where a area may only need to be mowed a few times per year. To name a few would be, if you have Buffalo grass, a ditch area that you want better than unkept or a large outlying area. Call us, we will stop out and look at it and offer our suggestions keeping in mind what you want for results.
We take our time and do nice work being sure that nobody gets injured, nothing gets destroyed and the work is done precisely and efficiently leaving a neat and clean appearance.
Landscape Maintenance and Tree care
At 1776 we have a passion for Maintenance and a love for trees. Many times you see a yard that has been landscaped very well but then, they just let it go and it does not look its best. Some plants hardly need any attention but, some need a lot, but like anything it is best to have a maintenance program in place to care for the plants, beds and overall grounds.
We maintain landscapes at associations, business's, acreages and homes all over Lincoln. Like many of the tasks that we perform it is something that requires good record keeping and familiarity with each customer and yard to be there when needed. For example, your lilacs need to be trimmed at a certain time and the weeds need to be pulled or sprayed in a timely manor.
We love to prune trees and are very good at it. When properly maintained most trees only will need 10 minutes of pruning per year. To me, these 10 minutes usually make the difference from a tree being like a wild weed or it being a healthy tree that adds beauty to your yard.
There are numerous specific tasks that we do under the title landscape maintenance, some of them are. Mulching, weeding, pruning, sheering or trimming, bed edging, separating and plantings. We will take good care of ya.
Spot Spraying weeds, brush or Volunteer trees
This is a task we have mastered from our many decades of experience spraying weeds and brush (Been spraying since 1979). With a four wheeler (some on foot) we can get around quickly and spray weeds growing threw the cracks of a parking lot or to close to fences or warehouses. This help the guys that are doing the mowing very much and it makes it much easier for the mowing guys to just stay away and not get so close to things where as they may cause damage.
Also this is a very efficient way to spot spray big or invasive weeds or brush in large open lots or on a acreage. We can spray to kill weeds, poison ivy, brush and undesirable trees. Its easy, we have the know how and it may surprise you how little it costs. Just one time per year can keep volunteer trees from getting out of control but, most places it is best to stop about 1 time per month if we are getting rains to keep the weeds in check. Call us, we would be happy to look at your situation, give a recommendation and do what ever you would like. Trust me when I say, we can provide tremendous value here.
