Lawn Mowing

Collection of Lawn Clippings (vs dispersing them on lawn)

Specialized Expert Services

Lawn Fertilization Service

•Core Aerating – We double and triple pass with the core aerating machine whereas other companies only do one pass. We use a garden weasel tool to hand rake in the corners and along belguim block to work the seed down into the soil. Our competitors don’t do this as its very time consuming.

•We use high quality, more expensive products for fertilizing the lawn to ensure results. These products have organic components which are designed to release the nutrients gradually over a longer period of time rather than a cheap product which makes all of the nutrients available over a short period of time.

•We apply 2 applications of pre-emergent weed control rather than the industry standard of 1 application.

•We spot spary all of your weeds to utilize as little herbicide as possible and be environmentally friendly. Our competitors save time by broadcast spraying the weeds with a huge rig negatively impacting the environment and health of the lawn.

•Our program is designed to guarantee results! Expect results within a 1 year process after we do the first Fall Core Aeration and Seeding.

•We spot spray the visible weeds during every lawn care visit, whereas other companies may charge you a separate, extra fee for doing so.

•Our lawn care technicians are cross trained in shrub and insect diseases resulting in a comprehensive insurance policy on your entire landscape rather than just lawn care.

•We pay to retain our best employees to ensure we have high quality workmanship and employee retention. Large national chain business models are based on a high volume, low cost strategy which results in high employee turnover.

Tick Spraying Services

•Our spray truck is a high pressure, 35 horsepower, 1000 gallon tank designed for effective killing of harmful ticks. Most of our competitors are using 5 horsepower, 200 gallon tanks that don’t give you the correct pressure to get under leaf debris nor the correct volume to kill the ticks.

Irrigation Adjustments

•Our scheduled multiple irrigation adjustments allows us to adjust water for correct lawn and shrub requirements. Over or under watering is one of the most destructive influences on a landscape. Our competitors don’t normally include these adjustments as part of their service contract.

Fine Gardening Program – 7 Visits

•Expertise: Our Crew has the expertise to prune shrubs at the correct period to avoid damage and loss of bloom. The majority of other landscapers do not have this expertise.

•7 Visits: We visit your property seven times throughout the year to achieve Fine Gardening. The majority of competitors only offer 2 basic pruning visits rather than the 7 visits Putnam offers for the Fine Gardening Program. Less visits results in lower quality.

•Roses and Perennials: We dead head and trim the roses and perennials constantly to allow for reblooming. If not dead headed multiple times, you will lose over 50% of the color from your landscape. This is essential for Fine Gardening. Most competitors don’t possess the expertise or understand the essential timing for these visits.

•Avoid Spreading Disease: Boxwoods and other plants will have fungus or disease issues. To avoid spreading the disease, Putnam’s is extremely careful in sanitizing equipment.
