Even though the sun is out and the heatwave is finally here, you might be noticing those leaves starting to drop around you. Now is the perfect time to start thinking about booking your fall maintenance package from Landscape Away. Our special fall package includes fall thatching and re-seeding for only $99!
Unsure what thatching is? Thatch is the building up of material that can include things like dead grass, leaves and stems. The removal of thatch involves using a rake or power rake depending on the size of your lawn and pulling the material out from the grass. This is important because a build up of thatch in your yard can prevent growth of grass and can cause your grass to become unhealthy. When thatch is removed it encourages grass to thicken and helps to make it stronger!
Re-seeding is a vital part of helping your worn out lawn return to tip top shape! Re-seeding is just simply spreading grass seed over an existing lawn. As your lawn gets older, thinning is normal, especially if it’s used quite often. Re-seeding helps to encourage growth and thickness with your grass.
If you’d like to read some tips on the re-seeding process check out this quick 5 step program on Reader’s Digest.

At Landscape Away we see a lot of backyards and one thing that dates a home, no matter what you have done to update the inside, is dated landscaping. Recently a client asked us to remove the 90’s style landscape ties to update the look of their worn out staircase to match the rest of their renovations. It was a pretty straight forward job, removing the old landscape ties that screamed 1990’s, replacing them with updated square ties that fit much better and create a cleaner look.
We cleaned and re-used some of the existing concrete stone and re-surfaced the steps with sand and a level. We took the opportunity to re-compact the staircase as preventative maintenance and to ensure a strong finished product. What a difference the staircase has made to their back yard! No longer a dated eyesore, the new staircase will last for years to come. A job like this took half a day with our crew and was well worth the time and effort.
It’s always a good time to start thinking about updating the landscaping at your home.
Give us a call and see how we can help bring your landscaping from the 90’s to the present day!
What does time mean to you? It means a little something different to each of us in terms of how we use it and want to spend it. Time can be measured in money, we have all heard the term “time equals money” and there is some truth to that. It can be measured in the most literal way by the ticking of the clock. One of the most meaningful ways to measure time is through moments, moments with family, moments doing things that ad value to our lives, moments enjoying life and moments carved out of your day to share with someone you love.
So when I get that call to come out and quote on a job what I often really hear is “can you come out and show us how we can spend more time doing things that matter most to us.” There are only so many hours in the day, with work, kids, family and other obligations taking up most of the day it becomes difficult to find that time that is so important to each of us to spend doing meaningful activities that ad value to our lives.
It is part of the reason I love what I do. Besides the love of working out doors and creating beautiful spaces, I am so rewarded at the end of the day knowing that someone came home after a long days work and was able to sit on the deck and share some time with family, loved ones & friends in a yard or garden that Landscape Away looks after. Knowing that my clients got to spend a little more time doing what they love because we took care of the yard that day is a great feeling.
