What you can expect:
Recurring maintenance dues are collected on the same day each month prior to the start of service. Payment cycles coincide with initial payment dates. Payments are collected from a secured server hosted by waveapps.com and stripe.com. Monthly subscriptions auto-renew until cancelled while add-on services require authorization with every purchase. We cannot fulfill requests to authorize remote transactions since KFR Landscaping does not collect payments directly.
Customers are required to provide a 30 day notice before cancellation of services to allow KFR Landscaping time to properly adjust scheduling and close the account. If proper notice is not given, customers may be responsible for paying the full month and/or payment processing fees associated with initiating a refund.
Service Visit Schedules
Growing season is from May 1st through October 31st while November 1st through April 31st is considered off-season. Service visits occur once per week as needed during growing season, and every two weeks as needed during off-season.
Cutting height of Saint Augustine shall be 4-5 inches minimum. Cutting height of Zoysia shall be 2-3 inches minimum. Grass clippings shall not be caught or removed from turf areas unless there are excessive amounts left behind. Areas that cannot be practically cut with power mowers will be clipped with string trimmers. These are areas such as foundation lines, lamp and mailbox posts, etc.
Power Edging & String Trimming
Power edging of walkways and roadways with Saint Augustine shall be performed at every mowing with the exception of Zoysia which grows at a slower rate. KFR Lanscaping shall use its best efforts to establish defined edges around all mulch beds and obstacles.
Hedge, Shrub & Tree Pruning
Shrubbery shall be trimmed as needed, to provide a well groomed appearance. Branches, palms and foliage over 8 feet total height are not included in the monthly ground maintenance plans.
Basic Weed Control
A non-selective herbicide is applied to control weeds in plant beds, in tree rings and pavement/sidewalk cracks.
Additional Weed Control
A prescription of both broadleaf and grassy weed controls, as needed, based on the condition of your lawn. Broadleaf weed control during warmer months will be reduced to spot treatment on lawns as chemical application can be detrimental to turf.
A custom blend of granular and liquid fertilizers is applied, which are balanced and blended for local soil and varying climatic conditions to ensure plant growth, root development and color.
Lawn is inspected for insect infestations and a blanket spray of insect preventative is applied certain times of the year when insect damage is likely.
Lawn Maintainer Care - 6 times annually (every 8 weeks)
Lawn care includes fertilization, full weed control, fungus and insect control for surface feeding insects such as chinch bugs, mole crickets, fleas and ticks.
Shrub & Ornamental Care – 4 times annually
A comprehensive program that helps provide ornamentals and shrubs with essential nutrients and protection against insects, disease and mites. We inspect your landscape on each scheduled visit and apply control products and nutrient-rich fertilizers.
Palm Tree Care – 4 times annually
A granular fertilizer specially formulated for palms is applied with the macro and micro nutrients necessary for optimal growth.
Irrigation checks, adjustments and repairs are not included in monthly maintenance plans and are therefore considered an add-on service.
Removal of debris in excess of a half yard in volume is considered outside the scope of what is included in any of the regular ground maintenance plans. An additional haul away charge may be applied if you require this extra service.
Each property is different. KFR Landscaping may sometimes employ the services of additional contractors that specialize in irrigation, fertilization, weed and pest control. Customers will be notified beforehand.
