The season is just getting started and I feel like I am already way behind with my gardening. Every day more weeds appear and my shrubs are looking wild! I think it's going to be out of control soon, and I don't know anything about pruning...I need help! - Mary


Professional Property Maintenance Hi Mary,
Call the Sprigs & Twigs Office Manager, Robin, at (860) 235-0752 and she'll help you make an appointment for one of our staff to visit you and take a look at your property. We are maintenance professionals and in a few hours, our team can take the guess work and physical work off your hands. We can do an initial Spruce-Up and you can take over maintenance of the garden from there or we can schedule additional periodic maintenance visits; weekly, bi-weekly or monthly throughout the season, if you'd like.

A Spruce-Up is a one-time visit to your property to get your garden and yard in shape. Each Spruce-Up is customized for your property and needs, but generally consists of removal of weeds from the garden beds, patios and walkways; cutting back perennial debris; expert pruning and thinning of shrubs and rose bushes; organic fertilizing of all plant types; edging garden beds, walkways and patios and mulching garden beds or fluffing your existing mulch. We will blow off or sweep all hard surfaces, including the debris hiding in the corners, and remove ALL debris from your property. Our expert pruners do not shear shrubs into balls with electric hedge shears, but hand-prune shrubs into their natural shapes.

Additional services include perennial division and/or transplanting; tree planting and pruning, regenerative shrub pruning and soil testing with recommendations for amendments to start a healthy, beautiful and lush green lawn. Organically!
