Winter/Spring Complete Property Clean Up – Cutbacks and winter pruning. Clean out beds of any debris and excess mulch and pull weeds as necessary. Apply pre-emergent to control weed growth as necessary, edge out beds, remove edging debris, and spread fresh mulch. Fertilize plant materials to prepare plants for the coming growth cycle using organic fertilizers and those specific to different plant types.
Monthly/Bi-Weekly/Weekly/Daily Maintenance Visits (Including Mowing of Grass Areas) – Weed all beds, prune plant materials, dead-head perennials as required, and touch-up mulch as needed. Keep grass area mowed to a maximum height (determined in the Contract), String Trim all edges (including sidewalk growth and any parking lot islands), and blow off clipping from all hard surfaces. NOTE: Leaf Removal will be included in our service on a continuous basis but may require a heavier more concentrated effort depending on Leaf fall. Service includes disposal of leaf matter unless directed otherwise.
Seasonal Color Rotation – NCI generally replaces annual flowers with seasonal color and plant selection. NCI tests for vital nutrients and the Ph in the existing soil and add amendments where necessary. NCI then removes all old plant materials, debris, and weeds. Lastly, we install new seasonal plant materials in a style, plant type, and color that we have agreed upon with you. Seasonal rotation is performed in the spring and the fall, but depending on your watering/irrigation practices a summer visit and Holiday Decorations may be arranged.
Pots generally require some design and Client preference. We have designers who specialize in Pots, Planters, Holiday Decorations, and special event preparation. These services can either be included in contracts or stand-alone.
Enhancement Services – In the event our QA/QC Program identifies something outside our scope of contractual services our Project Manager will verbally notify your point of contact and will provide a copy of our QA/QC Report. A cost proposal will be issued upon agreement with the scope of services required. NCI selects plant materials by visiting nurseries in order to select plant materials based upon both aesthetics and plant health to match (as closely as practicable) the plants being removed in type, size, and shape.
Hardscape & Masonry Services – NCI employs a full-time masonry/hardscape division that is capable of working with natural or manufactured stone products. Our services include stone, concrete, and brick repairs to the installation of patios, walkways, fireplaces, retaining walls, and outdoor classrooms.
Porter Services – Available to pick up trash around your facility and empty trash receptacles in your designated dumpster(s). Maintenance Services include policing of planting beds (including discarded trash), downed small branches from storms, or normal shedding of organic matter.
Landscape Design – The NCI staff of seasoned, talented designers will carefully listen to your goals and will provide you with drawings that accomplish the project within the budget established. We bring a residential flare to commercial enhancement projects and hand-select the trees and miscellaneous plant materials for the projects that NCI performs. NCI designs beautiful landscapes using native selections and cultivars to add color.
Snow Plowing/Removal – The approach NCI uses to keep your property clear from snowfall is based on the principle of ‘plan your work, then work your plan’. NCI will access your property for areas to be marked, areas to stage piled snow, and those areas requiring special attention (i.e., Medical Facilities, Day Care Centers, Entrances/Egress Areas, Delivery Areas & Dumpster Areas). NCI will conduct an interview with you prior to the Snow Season to ensure that all of your priorities are anticipated to be met and that our Customized Plan is acceptable prior to snowfall. The final step is for NCI to visit your property with our Estimator and Supervisor to ensure that all equipment is staged and ready, the property is staked properly and all personnel have been assigned to accomplish the plan.
Drainage Construction – Whether it is an enhancement project, pavement patching, a complete drainage system overhaul, or Freeze/Thaw considerations during the Winter Months we can address your needs. NCI has experience with underground springs, typical pipe trenching and placement, rain gardens, and bio-retention pond design, establishment, and planting.

A word about the NCI approach to mowing:
NCI performs regular maintenance on all of our mowing equipment two times weekly. This is to ensure that not only is the equipment functional but that the blades are sharp, the height of the deck is properly adjusted, and the equipment is free of contaminants from other properties. This effort on our part will ensure that lawn areas will be uniformly maintained and ‘striped’ for a neat and clean presentation.
WHAT SETS US APART? Quite simply, our People, Management, and relentless attention to detail in all we do!
