Lawn Care and Landscaping Solutions
Lawn Care Maintenance Solutions:
At the end of your workday the last thing that you want to do is mow your lawn. Here at Loudoun Landscaping we try to make it as easy as possible for you – the customer.
We offer solutions for every situation – from a one-time cut, to longer term care solutions; we have programs available to fit your needs. If it’s just cut the lawn once when we are on vacation, to take care of it all year long, we will perfectly groom your yard so you can sit back and enjoy.
Mowing programs typically include the following:
Mowing is done with top of the line commercial equipment. Our equipment is well maintained (i.e. the blades are sharpened on a regular basis to ensure a nice clean quality cut lawn; the engines are tuned up regularly so they do not make unnecessary noise, etc.)
Mowing height will be according to grass type to ensure you lawn looks great (3.5 inch setting normally). In the summer heat, the grass height is typically a little longer to ensure optimal health, and so you lawn does not burn out.
Grass clipping will be removed (as necessary) from sidewalks, curbs, and roadways immediately after mowing, and/or edging. We do not sweep, blow or otherwise dispose of clippings in sewer drains, or places the clippings should not go.
We will string trim tree rings, plant beds and all buildings, sidewalks, fences, driveways, parking lots, and other surfaced areas bordered by grass during each visit, or as needed.
We will close any gates opened for service.
Edging is done as needed along curbs, sidewalks, driveways, and patios to give your lawn a professional appearance.
Work will be performed between the hours of 8:00 am and 7:00 pm, and we do our best to keep noise to a minimum and respect yours and your neighbors’ property at all times.
We perform on a regular schedule so you always know when to expect us.
Everyone on our staff will be clean-cut, professionally dressed in a uniform, and ready and eager to assist you with any questions you may have with a smile!
We are fully licensed and insured, and will provide proof to you on request. For larger properties we do offer discounted rates.

We offer full service mulching programs. We can use any mulch you desire to make your yard look top notch.
Typically mulched areas are replenished/rejuvenated once a year during March and/or April or at start of services – if started mid-season using compatible mulch. Mulch should be maintained at a depth of 3 inches.
Isolated trees and shrubs growing in lawn areas should require mulched areas around them (minimum 2-foot diameter) to avoid bark injury from mowers and filament line trimmers and to reduce root competition from grass. In some instances, customers may request gravel, or alternative ground covering to be used around trees / shrubs, buildings, etc. in the property.
Turf Care Management / Fertilization:
A green and healthy turf grass doesn’t just happen. Our company utilizes a knowledgeable and well-trained team to resolve turf care needs. We design the right fertilization and weed control programs for you. Complete fertilizers shall be granular in composition and contain 30% to 50% or more of the nitrogen in a slow- or controlled-release form. After fertilization, a minimum of inch of water must be applied by the client and a regular watering schedule should be maintained.
Tree / Bush Pruning:
Shrubs will be pruned with hand shears and/or mechanical hedge trimmers as needed to provide an informal shape, fullness and blooms. No pruning will be done during or immediately following growth flushes, branches will be pruned just outside the branch collar, and pruning paint will not be applied. Sucker growth (ground level) will be removed by hand from the base of trees. No herbicides will be used for this purpose.
Tree and Shrub Installations:
Our team can consult with you to design and install plantings that bring both enhancement and beautification to your property. Our professional team can work with your budget to ensure you get the most bang for your buck.
Seeding & Aeration Services:
We also offer full service seeding aeration services to keep you lawn looking top notch all year long. Our team will work to make sure your lawn is ready for the new season.
