AMS Landscaping Services Disclosures

Weekly, Bi-Weekly, or 4 Week Basic Maintenance Service Under Monthly Maintenance Agreement

  • Mow and edge turf area (If applicable). Mowing height to be determined by technician.
  • Trim bushes on property up to 8ft level. Trimming is done on as ‘as-needed’ basis and determined by our technicians. We will keep plants off of walk ways, away from each other and off of structures where possible. Our trimming is done keeping the plants health in mind, we strive to retain color where possible while maintaining a clean appearance. We DO NOT trim every bush every visit but rather focus on sections of the yard each visit. Cutting back shrubs beyond the regular pruning is additional and fees are added for the additional work and hauling that is incorporated with cutting shrubs back beyond the color of the leaves.
  • Trees (Except Citrus/Fruit) will be skirted or ‘decked’ to the 8ft level. This allows a clean and neat appearance and allows walking under the trees. Our crews are not equipped to trim branches over 2″ in diameter as part of skirting. This may not be done every visit but is done as needed by our arborist per your request.
  • Weeds will be treated chemically in non-turf areas. We do sometimes use a dye indicator (Color) in our weed mix to indicate where our crews have sprayed. During the winter months this color may take 5 – 7 day’s to completely disappear; during summer months it is typically gone by the end of the day.
  • Property will be blown to remove landscape debris. We do our best to blow the property thoroughly, there are things that may contribute to the quality of the blowing; such as wind, rain, patio furniture, yard debris, and quantity of plant material. It is common for leaves to end up on patio furniture due to being blown and not falling to the ground before cleanup.
  • Crews will adjust timers seasonally and report any sprinkler issues.

*cactus is not included (usually separate)

Things to look out for:

  • It is important that the gate is unlocked and dogs are restrained BEFORE our crews arrive. We recommend hiding a key or investing in a combination lock to prevent the skipping of service. If the gate is locked our crews will skip the backyard, however you will be charged the full amount for service. If we are unable to service the backyard at our regular interval additional charges may apply once we are able to service the backyard.
  • Our crews will skip any areas with dog poop. If an area is unserviceable you will be charged the normal rate, if continued additional service charges may apply once the area is again serviceable. We do offer pet service; please ask us about the cost to manage this with your service.

Available at an additional cost:

  • Fertilization. Strong healthy grass can only be achieved through property nutrient supplementation. Arizona soil and low rain fall contribute to the necessity for additional nutrients to be added.
  • Winter Rye Over seeding. Winter over seeding allows you to use your grass area at the time of year when it’s bearable. With thousands of yards over seeded you can rest assured we can provide a beautiful winter lawn.
  • Pre-emergent. Pre-emergent guarantees against broadleaf weeds for 6 months in all granite areas. We subcontract this service out to a licensed weed applicator. We recommend this service every 6 months. (exceptions are bermuda and nut grass)
  • Aeration and Dethatching. Aeration provides the root system of your lawn access to deeper watering and nutrient availability. It’s suggested very 2 – 3 years, either deep root plug aeration or simple surface aeration.
  • Tree trimming. We recommend a professional tree arborist to trim all trees above 8ft to keep trees healthy and safe during the monsoon season.
  • Tall Shrub trimming. We do have equipment available to maintain plants above 8ft in height just let us know and we can provide the additional pricing necessary.
