A Year in Bloom...
Routine garden service is where the real magic happens. Coyote’s team of gardeners tend your garden with loving care. Regular and seasonal garden tasks can be set up on an cycle in accordance with your annual budget. We get started in early spring with a thorough weeding, pruning, and application of a nutritious compost mulch blended with organic amendments. Then regular monthly weeding keeps the gardens looking their best throughout the summer. In the fall we finish any pruning and tuck the garden in for the winter. In stormy winter months, we offer a “storm cleanup” service that cleans up paths, decks, and entryways.
We provide regular garden care on a monthly service route that allows us to perform seasonal garden tasks in the appropriate time. We only work organically, and our staff is well trained in plant identification, healthy pruning and a specific understanding of our coastal microclimate. Local gardens are fighting salt, wind, deer, rabbits, slugs, fungal disease, fierce invasives and a thriving weed population. We have the experience to get better outcomes in this challenging local zone.
Coyote’s thorough weeding of garden beds by hand once per month will eliminate the “seed bank” over time and keep your garden tidy. We advise regular monthly care over seasonal cleanups to keep unwanted plants from establishing themselves. We also use compost mulch to suppress weed growth and strategic planting to out-compete unwanted invasive plants. Gravel driveways, paths, and volley-ball sand pits are kept clean by weeding with a flame torch. Attention in the spring and fall destroys weeds and their seeds without the use of herbicides. There are safe and effective ways to deal with pests such as slugs, snails, deer, and rodents that can cause harm to your garden. We incorporate pest management as needed as a part of regular maintenance.
We specialize in artful pruning of shorepines, maples, ornamental trees and shrubs, fruit trees and shrubs such as hydrangeas and rhododendrons. Our experienced crew knows where to cut to get the desired result. We also have gas-powered saws, hedge trimmers, and a 18’ extension pole chainsaw for harder to reach tree pruning. We can do ladder work, but for climbing jobs we will refer you to a capable arborist. If you are looking for lawn care, we are happy to arrange lawn care services from one of our subcontractors. Or do it yourself with help from our pro-tips on our blog...
