Maintenance

Eco Harmony strives to create well-balanced, low-maintenance landscapes that let the plants do the work.

We offer a variety of maintenance options and programs to best fit your lifestyle and property needs:

  • Spring and fall property cleanup: Prepare your yard for summer/winter
  • Prune trees and shrubs
  • Lawn Maintenance:
  • Restoration:
    • Seeding or sod
    • De-thatch: Encourages a deeper root system to allow water and nutrients to penetrate the soil, leaving you with a thicker, hardier lawn.
    • Aerate: Reduces compaction; increases water and oxygen infiltration
  • Mulch: Wood mulch serves as natural weed block, retains water and adds organic matter to soil
  • Plant and maintain vegetable gardens
  • Weeding
  • Control invasive plant species
  • Use of environmentally-conscious fertilizers, herbicides, and pesticides in moderation and when necessary

Water Conservation

Eco Harmony utilizes thoughtful design and construction to create rain harvesting systems that become functional yet beautiful components of your sustainable landscape.

water drop Rain Gardens:

Rain gardens utilize water runoff from your roof, driveway, sidewalk or lawn.  The deep rooted plants allow for more efficient water uptake and the shape of the garden allows time for the plants to soak up the excess water and seep into the ground. Rain gardens add many benefits to your yard and the surrounding community.

  • Prevents polluted runoff and excess water in sewers, reducing pollution in lakes, rivers and streams
  • Recharges local aquifers
  • Creates native habitat for wildlife and butterflies
  • Perennial, native plants add lasting beauty to your landscape

water circle Rain Barrels:

Rain barrels can be an artful design element, not an eye sore! Advantages of rain barrels include:

  • Fast and easy way to collect and store rain water until you are ready to use it in your landscape
  • Inexpensive rain water harvesting solution
  • Saves you money on watering costs

wave Underground rain water harvesting systems:

Underground rain water harvesting systems are a great way to store and use water

  • Allows for maximum water storage
  • Maintains the natural beauty of your property
  • Encourages self-sufficiency from municipal water systems
  • Adds the dynamic element of running water to your scenery, e.g. streams, ponds and decorative origin sources

Arborist & Tree Services

treeHabitat for wildlife. Oxygen. Relief from the summer sun. Trees are vital for our environment.

Eco Harmony understands this. We take pride in landscape design that includes healthy, attractive trees that add natural beauty and considerable value to your property. That is why EcoHarmony has an ISA certified arborist on board. Our experienced staff addresses and eliminates any issues early in a tree’s life. With our help, your trees get the proper care they deserve. In return, they sustain your landscape with natural splendor for a lifetime.

Arborist services include:

Consulting: Our ISA certified staff evaluates your property for available sunlight, water, effective drainage and available nutrients. We select trees that thrive in your habitat.

Pruning: Proper pruning is preventive health care. It protects trees from harmful insects, diseases, decay and broken limbs. Pruning creates stronger silhouettes that reduce hazards on your property and promote tree longevity.

Planting: It’s not just about digging a hole! Our consultation ensures we plant the right tree in the right place. Our hands-on experience guarantees those roots will properly anchor and nourish your tree.

Removals: Safety, structural damage and disease are just a few reasons to remove trees from your landscape. Our certified arborist helps you decide if removal is necessary. We then bring the professional skill and equipment to remove your tree safely and effectively.
