    Every landscape job we sell we always try to get the maintenance with it. It goes hand in hand. Before you know it you will have 2 people that all they do is go around and pull weeds, plant annuals, prune, general upkeep, remulch, etc. There is good money there. People spend thousands of dollars on their landscaping and they want it to look good for a long time.

    I INCORPORATE MAINTENANCE INTO THE BID...I WILL GARUNTEE PLANTS THAT I INSTALL LONGER IF I MAINTAIN THEM.. IT IS A GREAT SELLING POINT, MOST PEOPLE BUY THE MAINTENANCE AS KIND OF AN INSURANCE POLICY, OR EXTENDED WARRANTY IF YOU WILL.

    We offer 6 month guarantee on woody landcape plants only.
    Then we take 10% of the job cost and offer another six month of "maintenance agreement" which covers one feeding, site inspection and further reccommendations.
