This Client wanted to put his property on the market. But first they wanted to add some curb appeal. When trying to sell your property curb appeal is one of the most cost effective ways to add value to your property. The first thing prospective buyers see when arriving is the yard. Trimming bushes, removing bushes, planting bushes or flowers, edging, mulching adding sod for an immediate beautiful lawn are a few ways to make your property more appealing to a home buyer.

On this property we removed a couple out of control bushes and planted some beautiful Rhododendrons and

green wave yews. We used a Toro Dingo to remove the old bushes and an auger bit to dig the holes to plant the new shrubs. After the shrubs were properly in the ground. Yes there is a proper way way to plant shrubs. We edged the bed with our EZ-Trench Bededger then Mulched the beds.

Now it was time to prep the ground and lay down some sod. We had to remove all vegetation. Some use a vegetation killer, dig it up or till everything and rake it up. We decided using our Turfco Kiscutter sodder was the best and quickest way for us. We then got to try out our new

Husqvarna DRT900H tiller. We tilled the area and removed any leftover vegetation and rocks anything that would prevent the grass roots from thriving. Now it was time for the Ford to drop some organic loam compost mix. This will give the grass nutrients and good drainage. Not done prepping yet we graded out the area with our razor back rake grader. Finally before laying down anything we put down some fertilizer and adjusted the Ph. Now we wait for the sod delivery. You have to time everything because you want to lay the sod as soon as it arrives. When the sod arrived we immediately started meticulously laying and cutting. After that we set up a simple watering system and stood back to enjoy the

  Bush Removal and Bush Planting Nantucket Privet in Brookline, Ma Cullins Service

Today Cullins Service is in Brookline, Ma. We have been working on this property for a little over a year, and have almost completely redone the whole property. The client is great and likes to work alongside us at times.

When we first came to this property the bushes were kinda out of control, but we have since tamed them down. These bushes seem to have rubbed our client the wrong way because every time we showed up for landscaping services she wanted them cut shorter until she decided to just remove them alltogether.

No problem Cullins Service can handle that. So with that we cut them down and removed the root system. Cant have roots were your going to plant.

First thing we had to do is match up the bushes to the rest of the hedge. We wanted a uniform look all the way around. We were lucky with these as they were a pretty common hedge,  a Nantucket Privet hedge.

Now we have to line up a straight line and space the bushes so they look good.  They will grow in and come together to form a hedge so you don’t want them to far apart. You also don’t want them too close because the roots need space to grow. About a foot and 1/2 to 2 feet is good. Make sure you plant them correctly and give them plenty of water so they can establish themselves. So far I have not lost any flowers or bushes that I have planted, and I’m not planning on loosing any.  We had organic loam, fertilizer, peat moss and much to properly plant these bushes.

With all the bushes in place in the ground we made a well around the roots to keep water in then we put more fertilizer down and covered all around the top w/ peat moss. Now to finish the project we covered the row of Nantucket privet bushes with about 3 inches of mulch. Not only is it decorative and make the property look nice. There are also a few practical reasons for this as well. The mulch will hold water better to keep the bushes roots wet of moist on hot days. Especially when they are first planted they need all the water they can get. Mulch also keeps away weeds, and breaks down into the soil to create a compost that turns into food for the bush.

Finally we installed drip irrigation around the bushes to keep them watered. So the client can just enjoy the new bushes and not have to worry about them drying out. We had fun on this job and we are and so is the client very pleased with the results.

  Spring Clean up Edging and Mulching in Needham

This was a spring cleaning w/ edging and mulching from a great customer we did leaf removal for last fall. We removed leaves from a wooded area in the back and pine needles from all over the yard. Anyone who has tried to remove pine needles knows it’s not easy, but the results turned out great. That is what this job is all about. We cleaned out all the beds and under the bushes.

After the spring cleaning we edged the bush, border and flower beds. I like edging it really defines the beds, it looks great, holds the mulch in and prevents weeds from creeping into the beds. The black mulch looks great in contrast to the green bushes and bright colors of the flowering bushes on this property. Mulching always looks good and you can’t go wrong w/ black. Other colors of mulch are good, but you have to visualize the mulch colors and the surrounding colors. Anyway I was happy w/ the results of this landscaping adventure and so was the client. Cullins Service hopes you enjoy this gallery and the video. Click here to see the full gallery and check out some of our other content.

This gentleman was a neighbor of the house next door. He needed a landscaper and we were in the right place at the right time. He wanted to sell his house and his realtor recommended some curb appeal. Look it up curb appeal helps to sell your house. If your home’s curb appeal makes a great first impression, everyone — including potential home buyers will want to see what’s inside.

This client didn’t want to go crazy, but he wanted it to look good. We started trimming the trees away from his house. You always want to keep tree branches at least 12 – 19 inches away from your house. You could scratch and damage the house and insects and rodents can easily get into your house, just to name a few. We also removed some branches of the neighbors that was coming over into his yard. We also trimmed a tree to open up his driveway area. Finally we removed a dead pear tree that his grandfather had planted many years ago, and that was it for tree work. Of course we used the echo CS 330T and our new Stihl MS 193T.

We then removed all leaves, debris and bushes that were to be removed. We also trimmed up some bushes and tied some ups well. We weeded out the flower bed and god rid of all the clutter. I wanted the flowers and bushes to pop, not be lost in a mess. After the cleanup we started planting the flowers and bushes. We wanted to add color to the flower beds.

The realtor didn’t want anything done to the grass, so we could only mow it. Oher than 4that the house looks great and is now on the market.

This is part 2 of our edging and mulching job at our massive Wellesley property. We already trimmed and shaped the bushes on this area now we were ready to clean out leaves, dead plants and other brush. Cullins Service also cleared overgrowth and dirt from the stone steps on the hill. We had to be careful not to disturb and cover the ground cover and large stones. After the edging and putting down the black mulch it made the hill look great.

We also had an overgrown island that came out beautiful. The island really didn’t have any defined lines. So when we edged Cullins Service landscapers were able to give the flower bed island a unique shape. After we weeded cleared it out and edged it it was starting to shape up

nicely. This is the kind of landscaping I like to do. Basically taking something like this and making it look great. After we put down the mulch Cullins service placed rocks randomly throughout the bed. The light colored rocks really popped against the dark mulch. That and the green hostas the island bed looked awesome.

This was a beautiful property in Needham that needed just a little work. Cullins Service trimmed and shaped the bushes and edged the front and sides in the back. We put down black mulch in the edged beds. Then we cleaned out some flower beds and put down mulch in them as well. Cullins Service finished it off by removing some built up dirt from some of the brick walk way on the side. When it was finished the property looked great. It’s always the little things.
