FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Can you match my existing brick for my new masonry project?

We can match or compliment any existing brickwork.  We match brick as well as mortar color to give your new masonry work great continuity with your existing brickwork.

How long should I water my lawn?

Shade, site conditions, and temperatures can dictate irrigation duration. Grass-type can also affect the appropriate length of watering times.  We can help you determine the best length of time to irrigate your lawn.

How long should I water my shrubbery?

We recommend trimming once per year, time for pruning can vary based on plant material.

How often should I water my lawn and shrubs?

The season of the year, temperatures, and rainfall totals determine how often you should be irrigating.  As a general rule irrigation should begin in early spring with twice a week watering.  The frequency should increase as the temperatures rise throughout the spring and summer.  Daily watering may be necessary during the extremely hot and dry months of the summer.

What can I use to clean my concrete or masonry?

Concrete can be cleaned with a light detergent as well as a pressure washer.  Masonry can be cleaned with a light diluted masonry detergent or acid.

What is the best time of year to trim my shrubbery?

It depends on the plant types in question, but generally, fall or late winter before new growth appears in the spring.  Contact us for more detailed information.

What is the best time to water my lawn and shrubs?

We recommend that watering take place early in the morning when the wind and heat are at a minimum.  This will help to make sure that your irrigation system performs at peak coverage because of a minimum of wind interference.  The early morning time also ensures that the maximum amount of water is absorbed, and not lost to evaporation.

What strength of concrete do you install in most driveways/walkways?

For most applications, 3000 psi concrete is used with fiber reinforcement.  This concrete mixture gives an extremely durable and cost-effective product to last for many years to come.

What thickness concrete are most driveways, walkways, and patios installed?

Most concrete slabs are installed at a 4-inch thickness.  This depth helps to maximize cost-effectiveness and does not greatly affect overall strength and durability.  The 4-inch thickness is suitable for most residential applications.

What type of base is your masonry installed on?

Most masonry paving is installed on a 4-inch concrete slab.  This ensures a level setting bed as well as prolonging the life of your masonry project due to the increased strength from the concrete base.  We do occasionally install masonry paving on a “sand setting bed”.  This method is chosen if a concrete sub-base is not recommended for the specific situation.

What type of fertilizer should I use?

Fertilizer type can vary based on the time the fertilizer is applied as well as the plant material that it is applied to.

When is the best time to fertilize my grass and shrubs?

We recommend a fertilization schedule based on your specific grass type as well as soil type.

When is the best time to replace the straw or mulch in my planting beds?

We recommend a through bed cleaning and reapplication of straw or mulch in late winter after leaf debris has finished falling.

Will my new concrete driveway or walkways crack?

Yes all concrete will crack.  Concrete is designed to crack to allow for expansion and contraction.  We do our very best to control the cracking in your new concrete paving.  We saw cut all of our expansion joints to allow the concrete to crack in unperceivable locations.  This practice keeps your new concrete looking like you and we intend it to.
