Tree Pruning

Tree Pruning

Pruning trees and shrubs helps to maintain and improve a plants health and safety. Our Massachusetts and Internationally certified Arborist adhere to the national standards for pruning. There is not just one way to prune a tree. It all depends on what the objective is. It can be pruning for hazards, to reduce wind load from storms, or for a vista to the ocean. We can perform the work to the desired affect. Sometimes, a tree or shrub may need to be supported with cables or braces to improve the structural integrity. Proper placement is key to the strength and longevity of anything installed.

Tree Removal

Unfortunately, some times trees and shrubs must be removed. We like to feel that this is a last resort. Some can be transplanted or pruned and not removed. Something that has died or is in decline, can be hazardous and in need of removal. Other reasons, can be an addition to the house, let sunlight on the yard or thin out a stand of trees, can be a few. G. Bourne Knowles & Company has the experience and trained personnel to surgically remove and size job no matter what the location, to insure the surroundings not get damaged. All that will be left is a stump and the wood if you want it.

Seasonal Approach to Landscape Design

Winter is a great time to evaluate your landscape from a design perspective as the "bones" of the landscape are apparent. Masonry features, are especially important in the winter landscape as they define spaces. Contact our Landscape Designer to create your custom landscape this winter.

Spring is heralded by blooms on trees, shrubs and emerging bulbs. Are you happy with the spring color in your yard? We can help you plan for next springs's color.

Summer is the time to evaluate, if your landscape is meeting you family's needs for recreation and entertaining. Perennial beds enliven the summer landscape with vibrant colors.

Fall is the perfect time to add plants to your landscape. Trees and shrubs planted in the fall, develop strong root systems. Plant spring blooming bulbs now, to enjoy next, year.

Lawn Maintenance

Lawn Maintenance

A well maintained lawn includes irrigation, fertilization and mowing. Proper mowing practices are essential for landscape turf to flourish.

Correct cutting height, mower speed and sharp blades are vital to lawn care health and really make a difference. G. Bourne Knowles & Company crews still use locke reel mowers that provide a much higher quality cut than rotary mowers. Enjoy your weekend and leave the cutting to us!

Masonry

Masonry

Building stone walls, patios and walks has been an art dating back to the pyramids. Any stone work is only as good as the foundation it’s built on. For masonry to last a lifetime, proper installation is the key.

Stump Removal

Stump Removal

Stumps can be a nuisance for lawn mowers or children playing in the yard. A stump can be removed in 2 ways. It can be ground into wood chips, usually 8-12 inches below the surrounding grade. This will allow for grass or small flowers and mulch to be put in its place. If the desire is to plant another tree, the stump will need to be dug out and pulled with heavy machinery. This will allow for another plant to be installed back in the same location.
