What Services Are Included?
- SPRING LEAF CLEANUP- ONE (1) SERVICE VISIT: Dream Greener will clean-up and remove leaves and debris from the lawn, the flower beds, and on hard surfaces, from trees that continue to drop leaves into the spring. This will prepare both the lawn and/or plant beds for the season.

- GENERAL CLEANUP: All grass clippings are cleaned from lawn and hard surface areas.
- DOUBLE PASS AERATION & OVERSEEDING– ONE (1) SERVICE VISIT: This service is completed in Late August through October. This process enhances both the air movement in the soil and the nutrient base that’s already in your yard. It’s often used in yards that have highly compacted soil or for lawns that aren’t getting the air, food, and care that they need due to thatch.
- PRUNING AND TRIMMING SERVICES – THREE (3) SERVICE VISITS: Hedges, shrubs, and/or ornamental trees under fifteen (15) feet will be hand-trimmed and pruned to create and/or maintain a tidy and desirable appearance. First service will be completed in the spring, the second in the summer and the final in the fall.

One treatment will be completed in the summer, and two treatments will be completed in the early fall. This program includes both pre-emergent and grub control applications.

- LAWN FERTILIZATION: Service starts in the Spring and is performed every 4-6 weeks
- LIME APPLICATION – ONE (1) SERVICE VISIT: The application to the turf will adjust the pH level of your soil and improve its ability to absorb all of the nutrients and other treatments applied to promote a healthy lawn.
- MONTHLY FLOWER BED AND WEED TREATMENTS – EIGHT (8) SERVICE VISITS: Dream Greener’s bed maintenance program minimizes weeds that grow between spring and fall bed cleanups. Our trained applicators will visit your property monthly between March and October to control the germination of weeds.

- FINAL FALL CLEAN-UP: This cleanup is tailored to enhance property appeal and maintain horticulturally correct maintenance of your lawn and landscape. Our service professionals will pick up, and remove all leaf litter from the lawn areas, beds areas and hard surface areas. In addition to weekly service, our crews make a final visit in early December to remove annuals, prune back perennials, remove dead wood and cross branches from small trees.

What does double aeration mean?
- Double aeration provides better seed to soil contact verses a single aeration. It reduces the soil compaction much better than a single aeration. This allows more air, water, and nutrients to reach the subsoil.
