PLEASE NOTE: That there are many unlisted details that go into a beautification project.
I have broken this down into some general categories. As you personally witnessed and experienced as you worked with me on the camellia, it was the cumulative effect of the little things I did, and my team will do, that will make the big difference in your properties value. With that thought in mind, I barrow this fitting quote.
“Trifles make perfection, but perfection is no trifle.”

Restoration trimming. Trim or prune all installed landscaping as needed. This will result in a renewed landscape without the expensive plant removal and replacement.

If performed with other tree services ALL OTHER SERVICES ARE DUE UPON COMPLETION. You may pay for the stump(s) separately, but you may not hold the payment for other completed services while waiting on the stump grinding and utility location service. We will grind the stump 4 – 6 inches below the surface. We use the best machine on the market for minimizing or eliminating lawn damage. It is self propelled verses being drug around with a truck. It travels on rubber tracks to cross your lawn. It can also expand for stability or shrink down to 35 inches wide for improved access. If no itemized price was listed and the stump grinding was included, then you will be reimbursed at a rate of $15 per stump. The resulting mulch will be left outside the hole. You may put it in the hole to fill it or use it around your plants. We will spread it for an extra charge of $30 per average stump and more for larger stumps. Expect your stump to be about 6-8 inches high until stump grinding takes place. This prevents our saws from becoming dull quickly. We reserve the right to not grind any stump if the operator points out a problem in grinding the stump. NO STUMPS WILL BE GROUND UNTIL YOU CALL AND GIVE US PERMISSION TO GRIND THE STUMPS. Utility location is a free service. The number is 770-623-4344, for Utility Protection Services. Utilities must be marked, LOOK AND SEE IF THERE ARE ANY UTILITIES IN THE WAY OF THE STUMP TO BE GROUND if there are utilities in the way of the stump then it can not be ground. PLEASE CALL US AS SOON AS THE UTILITIES ARE MARKED AND ALL IS CLEAR SO WE CAN SCHEDULE TO GRIND THIS STUMP. We DO NOT assume any liability for underground utilities. If the utility is marked or is not marked either way, if it is damaged it will be up to you to handle the matter.
