Cedrus Landscaping complies with all recommended maintenance procedures outlined in the BC Landscape Standard Manual.
We offer Weekly Grounds Maintenance Packages both on (10), (11) and (12) month Service Contracts. These packages include the following Industrial Landscape Maintenance Services but aren’t limited to:
- Mowing. Lawns will be mowed on a weekly basis during the growing season and as required during the winter months to a height of (3) inches.
- Edging and Trimming. We will edge plant beds, sidewalks and any other surfaced areas bordered by grass as required during the growing season and clippings will be blown from surfaces.
- Fertilization. Top quality slow release fertilizer will be applied in spring and fall.
- Moss Control. Moss control will be applied in the spring as required.
- Aeration/Over-seeding. These treatments will be done annually in the spring.
- Weed Control. Weeds in lawns will be removed mechanically or using an eco-friendly product as required.
- Overgrown vegetation is very important to have removed such as the woody weeds of bramble/blackberry which can be difficult to eradicate once they have become established. Prompt action can prevent problems and using the right methods lightens the work of dealing with thickets of robust weeds.
- A range of mowing and other mechanical removal equipment is utilized to maintain a desirable vegetation height on open areas, banks, ditches and swale bottoms. Approved herbicides are also applied to control undesirable and nuisance vegetation.
Invasive Plant Removal
- Knotweeds are invasive perennials with four species found in British Columbia; Japanese knotweed; Bohemian knotweed; Giant knotweed and Himalayan knotweed.
- Giant Hogweed have stem hairs and leaves that contain a clear, highly toxic sap that, when in contact with the skin, can cause burns, blisters and scarring
- St. John’s-Wort is a perennial invader of grazed and disturbed lands that creates dense stands, displacing native plant species and reducing available forage.
- Japanese Spiraea can rapidly take over disturbed areas. Growing populations creep into meadows, forest openings, and other sites. Once established, spiraea grows rapidly and forms dense stands that outcompete much of the existing native herbs and shrubs. Seeds of Japanese spiraea last for many years in the soil, making its control and the restoration of native vegetation especially difficult.
All green waste resulting from the maintenance operations at the property shall be removed and brought to the local transfer stations to be composted into bark mulch and soil products which are in turn used back on our sites. These products help to retain moisture and the need for excess watering during hot summer months and keep plants healthy by feeding the plants nutrients during the remainder of the decomposition.
