Grass and turf in the Mid-Atlantic Region requires a little more attention than just a mow and blow service. Our Crews at T.A.P.’s will mow to a height of 3 ½” to 4 ½” depending on thickness of grass and growing conditions. Lawn will be manicured in opposite directions to deter ruts and scalping. Obstacles will be trimmed around and hard surfaces will be power edged. All hard surfaces and flowerbeds will have grass clippings blown or swept.
Mulching is one of the best things you can do for your flowerbeds. This is the act of placing a protective barrier (mulch) around your plants and over your bare soil. Mulching prevents soil erosion, controls weeds and retains moisture to help your plants during hot and dry periods. At T.A.P.’s, we edge all beds and remove old mulch as necessary. All mulch is hand spread and installed for a neat, clean appearance.
Mulch choices include;
Black dyed Hardwood
Brown dyed Hardwood
Red dyed Hardwood

Annual Flowers & Color
Throughout the seasons in the Mid-Atlantic Region, different annual flowers are installed at different times to maintain color and appeal to your property. T.A.P.’s can help you maintain a colorful property all season long.
Trees throughout spring and summer may look beautiful, but once the leaves come down in the fall your yard may look like a brown sea of disrepair. Leaf removal is actually important for the health of your lawn, as the layer of leaves prevent sunlight and could cause mold during the wet winter months. Here at T.A.P.’s, we have the resources to remove the leaves from your property and leave you with a clean, neat appearance.
Aeration & Overseed
Aeration and overseeding is an often overlooked service to maintain and improve the health of your lawn. Aeration involves “plugging” the soil with small holes to allow air, water and nutrients to penetrate the grass roots. The main reason for aerating is to lessen soil compaction. Lawns with high traffic areas especially, are in need of aerating once a year. This helps the roots grow deeper and produce a stronger, healthier lawn.
Just like anything else, grass has a lifespan. Over time, your lawn may look “worn out” or bare in some spots. Overseeding helps rejuvenate lawns every year. Overseeding is the planting of grass seed directly into existing turf, without tearing up the turf, or the soil.
T.A.P.’s crews can take on the task of aerating and overseeding your lawn when the time is right to help maintain a healthier, beautiful looking lawn.
