Weed Control: All bedding areas will be maintained in weed-free condiition. Pre-emergents and spot-spraying will be used to assist in this process where appropriate. Beds will be raked and grooed as needed.

Litter: All litter will be removed from landscape areas each service call and taken to an approved dump site.

Tree/Shrub Pruning: All landscape trees and shrubs will be pruned once annually according to good horticultural practices. In addition, plantings will be tip-pruned during growing season to maintain proportion. Debris will be removed to an approved dump site.

Leaf Pick-Up: In the fall, all leaf drop will be removed as needed to keep landscape neat and clean.
