Landscaping and Lawn Maintenance in New Canaan

Whether or not we did your landscape design, we will carry out installation with ultimate care to create something stunning. Once the plantings, trees, shrubs, and other landscape accents have been decided on, our landscape designers will assess the plants existing in your landscape to see if they should be removed or seamlessly integrated.

After identifying installation site challenges and measures to curb them, our installation process commences. This starts with site preparation for soil amendment, completing any grading, and completing pre-installation work. After this, our managers and designers work hand in hand with installation experts to make your vision a reality.  We install trees shrubs, large plants, sod, turf, grasses, and flowers, and water features. After we are done with the installation, our follow up includes mulching, watering, and site clean-up.

  • Weeding

We remove weeds, thatch, and moss since they prevent sod and lawn vegetation growth by blocking nutrients and air from the soil. We use a process called scarification to remove thatch and deal with conditions such as shade, clay, poor drainage, drought, and high thatch quantities that could lead to moss development.

  • Improving Drainage

If your yard has a poor drainage, it could become waterlogged and adversely affect your lawn’s health. We change the nature of your soil to help in getting the desired levels of drainage and work on your garden’s topography to drive away water from unwanted areas.

  • Aeration

We aerate by creating small holes in the soil on different depths and intervals to allow better water and air penetration.

  • Over-Seeding

We over-seed to rejuvenate worn out and tired lawns by covering the entire space with large quantities of mixed fertilizer seeds. As a result, damaged and thinning areas are filled

  • Mowing and Edging

We do more mowing in summer, and less during colder weathers since grass grows s quicker when its warm. We maintain borders and edges based on your specifications.

  • Feeding

We use a variety of grass feeds and fertilizers based on your lawn’s soil. We recommend treating the lawn two times a year; one time on spring with a lawn feed rich of Nitrogen, and once more on autumn with a fertilizer that has high potash and phosphate levels.

  • Watering

A lawn that lacks water changes its color and loses its spring, resulting in its grass staying flat once walked on. We water our client’s lawns based on the soil characteristics and weather conditions. We recommend watering in the morning in cooler temperatures for best results.

  • Top Dressing

We do this to build the existing soil and improve its quality. We also check the type of soil in your lawn to know the right materials and consistency we should do a top dressing with.

“Affordable Experts”

All I can say is, my wife and I were a bit hesitant to accept a deal by Fairfield County Excavation that was priced half of what two previous quotes from other companies were, fearing that the quality could reflect a lesser price. The team came and entirely revamped the backyard, which was formerly concrete and followed up the plan we gave them without skipping a detail. They decomposed granite pathways, installed sod, created three paver patios and compost flowerbeds. No one could please us better. Thank you!
