Total Lawn Care

Beautiful Lawns


Lawn Health Analysis

Our expert lawn care specialist walks your lawn to assess its overall health and condition.

Auditing the general health of your lawn and turf is part of our full service lawn care program.

We will evaluate the health of your turf and landscape to determine the best methods to make your lawn the healthiest and most beautiful it can be.


Fertilization and Grass Types

Natural, organic nutrients help your grass grow and stay healthy.

Choosing the best grass types and fertilization methods that match your climate, seasonal considerations, landscape and soil type are keys to success.


Aeration and Seeding

To increase air, water and nutrients to a lawn's roots, small plugs are extracted from soil. Our specialists know when the time is right for seeding to thicken turf.

pH and Soil Quality

Great lawns require great soil with the right balance of alkaline and acid. If soil is out of balance, pH is adjusted with lime, potassium or other micronutrients.


Targeted Insect Control

Our targeted services help control turf-feeding insects and prevent them from invading your yard.

Disease Control

Disease could be the reason for spots or patches in your lawn. Holbrook Landscaping has the expertise to determine the problem and treat it.

Hedge and Shrub Maintenance

Hedges and Shrubs


Hedges and shrubs are the perfect anchor for your Landscape. Not only do they look good, but they can also be used to provide privacy or create a natural barrier, if desired. When properly maintained, most shrubbery will provide you with many years of enjoyment.

Well-maintained and beautiful hedges can provide privacy, act as a barrier to street noise not to mention add value to your home. Hedges are smaller shrubs, that when planted in rows, grow together to make a uniform wall or shape.


Besides purely aesthetic reasons, there are other reasons why hedges need to be trimmed. Trimming and pruning is also used to stimulate new growth, to divert energy to flowers, foliage or healthier parts of the shrub, or to allow the bottom-most part of the shrub to receive needed sunlight. It can also be done to improve living conditions in cases where the hedges have become too crowded.


Properly and neatly trimmed and pruned hedges give a yard a nice, manicured look.

Pruning is a horticultural practice that alters the form and growth of a plant.

Based on aesthetics and science, pruning can also be considered preventive maintenance. Many problems may be prevented by pruning correctly during formative years for a tree or shrub.

Mulching Information


Mulch solves so many problems it ranks pretty high on a gardener's list of best friends. Mulch controls weeds, keeps soil moist, and prevents erosion and runoff. Organic mulches enrich the soil when they decompose, adding nutrients and improving soil structure. A blanket of mulch maintains even soil temperature, which promotes healthy plant growth. In winter in colder climates, for example, mulch keeps the soil from the freezing and thawing that disturbs root systems. Mulch also makes a garden look good, giving beds a consistent and finished appearance.


Mulch Benefits

When used correctly, mulches conserve soil moisture. They keep soil cooler in summer and warmer in winter, maintaining steadier soil temperature. Mulches also prevent soil "splashing," or spreading soil-borne diseases or contaminants onto vegetation or produce via water drops. They reduce weed growth too, and help prevent soil compaction. Organic mulches decay into the topsoil, adding nutrients and improving soil structure. Mulched plants produce more roots, which enhances their health.


Pine Needle Mulch

A two to three inch layer of pine needles makes an excellent organic mulch. Pine needles are lightweight and pack loosely, yet they "interlock" and hold better than most mulches....especially on slopes. Air as well as water and nutrients easily penetrate pine straw mulch, but because it breaks down slowly it doesn't need frequent replacement. Using pine needles as mulch is also sustainable, and usually organic; no trees are harvested to produce it. Pine straw mulch doesn't attract pests or termites. It's useful for any plants that do well when mulched, not just acid-loving plants.


When to Apply?

The best time to apply mulch depends on what you are growing and your purpose for mulching. For flower or vegetable gardens it's best to wait until the ground warms up; otherwise the mulch will keep the soil temperature low and inhibit plant growth. Wait until seedlings are a couple of inches tall before mulching around them. If you want to keep soil temperature from fluctuating during the winter, apply mulch after the ground freezes.
