Trained and certified technicians from Atkins Ground Maintenance have all the resources to keep your residential or commercial lawns and landscapes in pristine condition.
Our approach is personal: “We look after your property as if it were our own.”
Based on our 40-plus years of experience, we can take care of anything you may need in ground maintenance outside your home or commercial building. We strive to provide a personal touch through area managers who strive to know your properties as well as your name and specific maintenance needs.
Our crews are seasoned, some with more than 20 years experience. For you, that means strong capabilities for understanding your area, the weather, local insects and fungal disease pressures, soil types and other conditions that will apply to maintaining healthy, thriving lawn and landscape.
We follow through—and that keeps us a step ahead of our competitors. Our area residential and commercial managers monitor properties throughout the year and they also oversee the technicians. That means your maintenance needs and concerns will be communicated to our crews. Then, the managers check to make sure the results are what you expect.
In addition to standard turf programs, our staff can customize plans for your commercial or residential situations. For example, we can monitor your sprinkler system on a monthly basis and adjust the irrigation controller as the season changes. We also can adjust fertility programs, seeding and aerating. We can diagnose insect and disease issues affecting your lawn and landscape plants to meet your preferences, while adjusting to all the curves that Mother Nature may throw.
We also offer aquatic weed and algae control measures for your pond, lake or lagoon, plus help to improve clarity and odor issues.
