We can ensure your garden landscape remains at its highest level of beauty and health. These include replacement of annuals, routine fertilization, removal of weeds, and mulching of planting areas.
Our garden maintenance services include regular garden maintenance and selective rejuvenate hand pruning. Not only can Cider Mill help you choose the best specimens to use in your landscape design, and professionally install them, we can also maintain your plants. Establishing a new landscape or improving upon an existing landscape is half the battle. From the day your landscape is planted, it will require maintenance to keep your flowers and plants blooming and flourishing season after season.
Our garden maintenance program consists of monthly to semi-annual visits during the year to make sure specimens are appropriately trimmed, fed, nurtured and winterized. These elements are important to keep your plantings healthy and productive.
Many homeowners think that they just plant trees and shrubs and they will simply thrive for years with nothing more than shearing, fertilizer and some water. You can make a huge investment planting landscape materials only to have them appear leggy and skimpy due to overcrowding and lack of pre-planning or routine maintenance. During the appropriate season for pruning, Cider Mill Landscapes uses hand tools and carefully selects which limbs and branches to remove based on the plant type and the shape desired. This is part of our selective rejuvenate pruning service.
In our zone 6 areas of Media, Garnet Valley, Glen Mills, Swarthmore, PA, and Wilmington, DE, landscapes often suffer harsh winters with snow and ice that can wreck plants. In addition the warm season’s high heat and humidity invite pests and disease.
Instead of removing and replacing large specimens and legacy plants, our horticulturists will assess and prune shrubs and trees to reduce their size, improve their appearance to help them become an asset to your landscape.
Our selective rejuvenative pruning works with the natural structure of the tree or shrub so that it maintains its expected/natural shape. Removing targeted branches allows sunlight and circulates air into the center of the specimen to encourage growth from the middle rather than just at the very tips. Foliage then grows evenly through the shrub or tree and gives it a much healthier and natural look. When certain branches are removed, it encourages new growth and budding and it keeps chronic diseases at bay.
In addition to selective pruning, we can also remove diseased or unwanted trees, and replace or install foundation drainage to protect your home and soil and other long-term garden maintenance services.
Our horticulturists can also conduct a soil analysis and cultural survey of your landscape. This information will allow the horticulturist to suggest recommendations on how to improve the soil, as well as where to place plants for the best performance and growth. The experienced crew-members can add any amendments needed to the soil and hand dig and transplants plants to a more suitable area.
