Residential and Commercial
HOW NCI WORKS WITH YOU
Project Manager: An NCI Project Manager will meet with you to go over plans, match expectations, and provide clear time sheets to you as often as you require.
Supervision/Crew: The NCI Project Manager will relay instructions to our Foreman and crew based on meeting with you and/or the commercial representative
Quality Assurance and Quality Control Program (QA/QC): The Project Manager will complete a QA/QC inspection of work performed, and share the report with you. Any questions or additional work suggested from the review will begin with a conversation.
Office Staff: Provides detailed billing and will serve whatever need you may have.
Landscape Design: The NCI staff of seasoned, talented designers will carefully listen to your vision and provide you with renderings that accomplish the project within the established budget. We bring a residential flare to commercial enhancement projects and hand-select the trees and miscellaneous plant materials for the projects that NCI performs. The NCI team designs robust landscapes using native selections and cultivars to add color.
Hardscape & Masonry Services – NCI's talented masonry/hardscape division is skilled in working with natural or manufactured stone products. Our services include stone, concrete, and brick repairs, as well as the installation of patios, walkways, fireplaces, retaining walls, outdoor kitchens, outdoor living areas, and outdoor classrooms.
Lawn Mowing Services/Groundskeeping: Mow grass to a maximum pre-determined 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. NCI performs regular maintenance on all mowing equipment. This assures us that the blades are sharp and the equipment is free of contaminants from other properties. This effort ensures that lawn areas are uniformly maintained and ‘striped’ for a neat and clean presentation.
Property Maintenance (Including Mowing of Grass Areas) – Weed all beds, prune plant materials, dead-head perennials, and touch-up mulch as needed. Leaf Removal is included in our maintenance service, but may require a heavier, more concentrated effort depending on leaf fall. Service includes disposal of leaf matter unless directed
Porter Services – Available to pick up trash around your facility and empty trash receptacles in your designated dumpster(s). Maintenance Services include quality control of plant beds, downed small branches from storms, or normal shedding of organic matter.
Winter/Spring Complete Property Clean Up – Cutbacks and winter pruning. Clean out beds of any debris and excess mulch and pull weeds as necessary. 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.
Container Planting and Holiday Decoration Installations – NCI has designers who specialize in Pots, Planters, Holiday Decorations, and special event preparation. These services can either be included in contracts or stand alone.
Seasonal Color Rotation – NCI generally replaces annual flowers with seasonal color and plant selection. We test for vital nutrients and the Ph, adding amendments where necessary. NCI then removes all old plant materials, debris, and weeds. We install new seasonal plant materials in a style, plant type, and color agreed upon. Seasonal rotation is performed in the Spring and the Fall, though a summer visit may be arranged.
Snow Plowing/Removal – NCI will interview you before the Snow Season to customize your priority areas before snowfall. A crew member will assess the 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). Commercial Snow Removal: NCI will also visit the property with to ensure that the property is staked and all equipment is staged and ready.
