Shrub & Tree Trimming & Pruning

At Meier's Landscape Maintenance, we realize there's more to pruning and trimming than just firing up the chainsaw and getting after it. *It's of critical importance that those who trim trees have a good understanding of the way tree bark heals. *We see examples all over town of tree limbs that have been improperly cut, producing openings that will never heal. *These openings will eventually allow boring insects to penetrate the tree and kill it. *Through years of education in the Landscape Contracting program at Oklahoma State University, we know how to do things the correct way. *We've also made substantial investment in our trimming & pruning equipment. *We have the tools and the know how to give your landscape plants the manicured look you want. *So whether you want a one time trim or you'd like to schedule regular trimming/pruning, we can help.

Autumn Leaf Clean-Up
Most trees in this area start losing their leaves in late November and leaves continue to fall through about mid-January. *Customers can choose to have their leaves cleaned up right before Thanksgiving, right before Christmas or right before the Super Bowl (late January). *Some customers have us come out for all three occassions during the winter months to clean leaves. *Autumn leaf clean up consists of removing all leaves from the lawn and beds and mulching them with our shredder. *We leave the debris in regular 30 gallon trash bags for the next scheduled trash pick up. *Many of our customers use the shredded leaves as mulch in their beds. *It's very good organic matter for beds and because it's been through our shredder, it decomposes quickly.

Grub Prevention
Our grub prevention plan consists of applying a systemic pesticide to the entire lawn area every year in early spring to provide season long protection from grubs. *The material is absorbed by the grass and anything that feeds on the grass will get sick and die. *The advantage in preventing grubs over treating them after they become a problem is that earthworms, which are beneficial to the soil profile, don't feed on grass roots and therefore aren't harmed by our materials.

Winter Overseed
Winter overseed ensures that your lawn remains dark green all winter. *We use only the best cultivars of perrennial rye seed. *The service consists of scalping the lawn and removing clippings in mid to late September. *Seed is applied at the appropriate rates. *Customer is responsible for following strict watering instructions for the first three weeks of seed germination.

Shrub & Small Tree Insect Prevention
Shrub and Small Tree Insect Prevention consists of applying a systemmic pesticide in early spring to soil beneath the plant's canopy. *The material is absorbed by the plant via the roots. *Any insects that feed on the plant for the next several months will get sick and die.

Seasonal Color
Seasonal color can give your landscape the touch of color that really sets it apart from the neighbors. *We use only the finest 4" annuals available. *All plants are treated with a systemmic pesticide at time of planting that will cause any insects that feed on the plants to get sick and die. *Plants are guaranteed to customer's satisfaction when purchased along with our soil ammendment (if needed) and maintenance plan. *Customer is responsible for keeping plants adequately watered.

Seasonal Color Soil Ammendment
Our seasonal color soil ammendment consists of tilling heavy clay and importing organic matter and sand as needed. *For most clay soils in our area, this is a 'must do' procedure for flowering annuals that you'll be proud of.

Seasonal Color Maintenance
Seasonal color maintenance includes the following services: *1.) *Testing soil pH levels once every three months and making adjustments as necessary *2.) * Applying liquid plant food to annuals bi-weekly 3.) *Removing leaves and debris from planting bed bi-monthly and *4.) *Deadheading annuals bi-monthly or as needed.

Landscape Design & Proposal
Our landscape design package consists of first meeting with you, walking the landscape and discussing your goals. *We take measurements of your entire existing landscape, noting all vegetation, sprinkler heads, irrigation valves, etc. *We use your input, along with our education and industry experience to draw up landscape plans custom tailored for you. *Then, we meet with you again to present our design. *As one can imagine, this requires a substantial investment of our time. *That's why we charge for our designs up front. *If you elect to have us install the landscape, we will always deduct the price of the design from the installation cost. *Our design fee does not include making changes to our designs or drawings. *Customers do not receive a copy of the designs until they've agreed to have us do the installation and paid the deposit.
