Landscape Maintenance Like No Other

As Cleveland’s premier landscape company, we’re highly skilled and experienced with a variety of property types.

Maintenance Services

Weekly Lawn & Bed Maintenance:

From April through November you’re assigned one lawn crew that will visit your home on the same day each week to properly maintain your property. We can’t guarantee a time of day, but we pride ourselves on consistency and we never end the day until our job is done. We always bag grass clippings during weekly mowing and finish the yard with custom stick edging to provide definition on landscaping beds.

These beds will be maintained, cleared of debris and weeded once you have received your Spring Cleanup and Mulching.

Spring Cleanup & Mulching:

Our Spring Cleanup starts with the clearing of leaves, branches, and clutter leftover from the late winter and early spring. We re-edge all landscape and flower beds to help with rainfall, prepare for mulching, and most importantly look better. We then apply the appropriate yardage of triple shred mulch to your beds. Reshaping and trimming trees and shrubs promotes healthy growth and helps your property look beautiful all season long.

The crew performing this work is not your assigned weekly lawn crew. Please reach out to your account manager to confirm your Spring Cleanup and mulch date.

Mid Season Pruning:

Mid-season pruning is typically performed in the month of August. During the summer, pruning is important as most plant life is rapidly growing. Our crewmembers will perform ‘thinning cuts’ or ‘reduction cuts’ and ‘deadhead’ flowers and plants as needed. This time of the year is ideal for shaping hedges as well. This helps the continued growth and appearance of your landscaping.


All fertilization services are performed by Custom Lawns. While they are a separate company of Ground Works, they share the same values in customer service and property maintenance. Most fertilizer programs consist of six applications, with the first in early spring and the last in November.

Please don’t be confused or concerned if you happen to see Custom Lawns uniformed workers on your property.

Irrigation Maintenance:

We’ve upped our irrigation services by adding an extra visit to your contract. Our sister-company, Irrigation Works, will perform a backflow test and turn-on in spring, an early summer checkup to ensure your system is efficient for the most critical time of the season, and finally a blow out and winterization in the fall to prevent damage in the cold months.

Fall Cleanup:

Your leaves will be maintained by your weekly lawn crew. When leaf fall becomes heavy in November, additional crews will begin to assist with the cleanup at your property. In addition to cleanup, these crews will also help complete fall pruning, which consists of trimming shrubs, grasses, and cutting back your perennials. Leaf cleanup will continue even after mowing has been completed for the year. All leaves will be blown to the curb for your city to pickup. If necessary, Ground Works will haul away additional debris after city pickup has concluded.

One Crew all Season

From April through November, your assigned lawn crew will visit your home on the same day each week to properly maintain your property.

If poor weather conditions, we shift our weekly schedule accordingly. We will work on Saturdays if needed and you will be notified about any type of schedule adjustment.
