HOA Landscape Maintenance
HOA Landscape Maintenance Programs
Native Fields Landscaping offers a full range of HOA Landscaping Maintenance Programs to clients across Northern New Jersey.
Lawn and Bed Maintenance
Our crews will be out on a weekly basis performing specific tasks to maintain the highest standards of quality on your property. Below is a list of services that we offer throughout the landscape season:
- Dormant pruning in the winter to elevate and thin out the branching structure
- Spring cleanup of leaves and debris from the winter months.
- Bed edging in the early spring before we mulch the complex.
- Fertilize the planting beds in the early spring to promote healthy, new growth of shrubs.
- Lawn maintenance on a weekly basis to create and maintain a manicured look.
- Weeding of the landscape beds as needed.
- Sticking edging of sidewalks on a monthly basis to create a crisp line on the sidewalks.
- Summer tree & shrub pruning to reshape the plant material after months of growing.
- Vertical trimming of the landscape beds to maintain the deep bed edge.
- Perennial maintenance at the end of the season so the plants are ready for the winter months.
- Fall cleanup of the leaves and debris off the lawns and out of all the planting beds.
Seasonal Flower Displays
Our enhancement crews prepare planting beds with organic material in the early spring. Then they will plant lush, healthy plants in the spring, summer and fall to create a color flower bed to last throughout the growing seasons.
- Early spring we plant cold tolerant pansies to give your community some color after a long winter season.
- Summer annuals are planted in May so residents can enjoy beautiful colors that will last throughout the summer.
- In the fall, we will change out the plants in the flower beds and install a wonderful display of fall flower mums.
- Late fall/early winter, we install bulbs so in the early spring our clients can enjoy some early season color displays.
- Before winter sets in, our crews will perform one more change of color and install a combination of ornamental cabbage, kale, millet and pansies.
Lawn, Tree and Shrub Planting and Care
Native Fields Landscaping subscribes to an integrated approach to Plant Health Care (PHC). This approach is concerned with healthy plants that are vigorous and attractive. It emphasizes working with nature instead of fighting nature. Our goal is the plant the right plant in the right place.
Our methodology includes six basic components:
- Identify your plants: This enables you to know their cultural needs, likely pest problems, and common environmental problems.
- Determine key problem: Biotic problems; living organisms such as insects, fungi, slugs, and deer and abiotic; non-living factors such as weather, fertility, irrigation
- Landscape Ecosystem: Become aware of climatic factors, such as minimum temperatures, the amount of sun received by various parts of your garden, prevailing winds, and seasonal patterns of precipitation. Understand soils and drainage patterns is a major part of plant health care.
- Monitoring: Inspect, identify, and record your data on a bi-weekly basis. Pay particular attention to signs of plant stress (yellow or wilted leaves, dead twigs, etc.), and be on the lookout for developing pest problems.
- Optimize plant health: Select pest resistant plant species, match plants to the existing climatic and soil conditions (“right plant, right place”), and include a diversity of plant species to limit infestations.
- Employ good cultural practices: Improve soil conditions by using organic matter and mulches, practice correct planting methods, and pay careful attention to watering, fertilizing, and pruning (too much of the last three may be just as bad as too little). Sound cultural practices are the basis of a PHC program. They benefit any landscape, whether new or well-established.
At Native Fields Landscaping, LLC we work with Sprinkler Surgeon's irrigation technicians to maintain your irrigation system throughout the growing season.
- Early spring-Start-up of the season will include turning on and testing each zone. The technicians will make repairs during this process and they will also create a detailed report of any additional repairs or upgrades that they recommend.
- During the summer months, the irrigation team, will visit the site and re-test each zone to make sure all irrigation heads are functioning properly so the turf and plant material stays lush and green.
- Late fall the irrigation crews will be back onsite to winterize the irrigation system before winter sets in.
