Residential Property Maintenance

This agreement confirms the services supplied by Assiniboine Landscapes and Lights. Weather does play an important role in our ability to service your property properly. We would appreciate your patience in providing us grace time to attend to the services scheduled.

Spring Clean Up (April 1 – May 31 approximately)

Spring clean up services are provided during one visit and are booked on a first come first serve basis. It is the customers responsibility to mark any sprinkler systems and all dog fences must be cleaned up prior to the crews arrival. A failure to do so will result in a cancellation of the scheduled appointment and a charge of $20 will be billed to the customer. Removal of bags is included with all services.

Power Rake – (de-thatching) prevents too much organic matter from collecting at the base of grass stems a thick layer of thatch can prevent water, fertilizer and pesticides from penetrating the soil, can be a haven for lawn pests
Aerating – punch holes to a depth of 3 inches into soil so that air and water can penetrate the surface. Water logging after rain, unusually rapid browning in dry weather and bare patches are signs of the need to aerate.

Lawn Maintenance (May 15 – October 15)

Lawn maintenance is provided on a weekly or bi-weekly basis unless otherwise agreed upon.

Weekly maintenance – our crews will cut and trim your lawn at your residence once a week on a pre-determined day. Due to extremely wet conditions the couple of years, only weekly maintenance will be available from May 15 – October 15.

Bi-weekly maintenance – our crews will cut and trim your lawn once every two weeks. This service starts July 15.

Vacation Cuts – available upon request

Cancellation Policy – It is the clients responsibility to: notify the office 48 hours prior to scheduled cut day to cancel a cut, ensure no feces are present on the property and to turn off sprinkler systems on the cut day.

Scheduling – If weather is an issue on your scheduled cut day your cut will take place on the next weather-permitting day. If you decide to change from bi-weekly service please inform the office 48 hours in advance and please note there is a difference in price for weekly and bi-weekly maintenance. Extra long grass will be charged as a double cut.

Fertilizing

Fertilizing is an important lawn care practice, as it influences grass color, ability to recover from stress and helps prevent weed invasions and disease. We use a quality granular fertilizer with controlled nitrogen release that feeds the lawn gradually over 2 months for a deep green color.
Single applications and a 4-step process are available.

Fall Clean Up (October 15 – November 15, weather permitting)

Fall clean up is a one time service to prepare your property for the winter. Services are provided on a first come first serve basis and weather permitting.

Invoicing

Invoices will be emailed once a month and will be deemed correct and non negotiable after 10 days from the date of the invoice. Any cheque returned NSF will result in $20 service charge. A credit card number is required for all service bookings.

NOTE: all prices are based on an average sized property. Changes in pricing may occur if property is found to be outside of the norm.
