Collins Lawn and Maintenance has provided lawn care services on multiple properties for myself and my family. The owner, Ed, is a really good, hardworking guy. He or his guys are always there on time, the job is done right, and the prices are good compared to other companies I used in the past. I highly recommend them.

Ed came on time, worked hard all day for a reasonable price, made the yard look amazing and even stayed an extra half hour to help me move some heavy furniture.

Core Aeration and Dethatching

Core Aeration is actually a way of cultivating your lawn by removing "plugs" of soil and leaving behind small perforations in the earth. These plugs are left on the surface. The Dethatcher breaks down the plugs, thereby creating a top-dressing for the lawn with organic matter which allows for root and new shoot development.

Advantages of Core Aeration Increases water and air movement in the soil

 • Relieves soil compaction and allows products to reach the root zone

 • Helps prevent thatch buildup performed in conjunction with overseeding

 • Increases turf development

Aeration is ideal for all homeowners regardless of the condition of your present lawn. This is a fast and easy way to produce a healthy lawn by attacking cultural problems such as soil compaction and thatch accumulation.

Over seeding is preferred with this option. Continuing with the annual treatments is always recommended for producing the best long range results.

Fertilization after core aeration is available upon request for an additional charge. 

All debris is removed from the property.

This service will be available again in the fall. Please email us to get on the fall 2021 list. 

Initial Clean Up/One Time Cleanups and Yard Debris Hauling:

This service is a one time property clean up for the season, events, parties, family gatherings, pine needle/pine cone and yard debris removal.  One time  cleanups vary depending on your needs, but generally remove all debris from the grounds, trimming, edging, mowing. 

The initial and end of year clean ups for weekly clients (if needed) come at an additional charge.


If you are planning an event please be sure to include clean ups in your pre-planning agenda to ensure your property is in the condition you want for your big event. 

This service is available year round, weather permitting.
