To Our Valued Customers:

In caring for your lawn, plants, and trees, we use a number of pesticides, which are registered with the Department of Environmental Conservation.  All of these products are applied by or under the direct supervision of a Certified Pesticide Applicator and in strict accordance with label instructions.  Please understand that these materials are significantly diluted before application. Granular products are applied in their original forms as specified on the label.

In conformance with New York State law, we have a list of the pesticides and fertilizers that may be used on your property this year on our Product Label page.

Property Maintenance

We do a complete job including trimming edges and blowing off the walks and driveway. Regardless of the size of your property, we will have it looking great every week. Give us a call. Let us quote you a price.


How often should my lawn be cut?


At times of active growth, lawns should be cut every week to a height of 2 1/2 – 3 inches. Ideally only 1/3 of the grass blade should be removed in one mowing.


Should my grass clippings be collected?


Removal of clippings also means removal of nitrogen from the lawn. It is better to chop up and disperse the clippings so they may return nutrients to your lawn. The leaf blade of your grass is actually 80% water and 5% nitrogen. Mulching can reduce the amount of fertilizer you have to apply to your lawn and it helps provide the soil with increased ground cover to hold moisture. Our company uses special mowers with mulching blades that return the grass clippings to the lawn through a continuous cut and re-cut motion. This process eventually drops the finely cut clippings back into the lawn, not onto the lawn. Leaving clippings does not lead to a build-up of thatch.

Shrub Trimming

The shrubs and trees that accent your property are a living, growing asset to your home and property. We have certified arborists and certified landscape professionals who can prune and trim your shrubs correctly. Whether you like a formal look to your property or a more natural appearance, we can do either. Our team will do a thorough job from recommending when the proper time to trim will be to a complete clean-up of debris.

Edge & Mulch

Michael Grimm Services strongly recommends installing a new edge on beds as well as installing a top-dressing (1″) of fresh mulch over all garden areas on a yearly basis.


Plant Health Care

Taking care of your investment pays off in the long run!

We recommend a 3-year fertilization program for newly planted trees and shrubs. After they are established, fertilization is recommended if plants do not thrive or show a nutrient deficiency. Plants in soils with a high pH may be unable to utilize micro-nutrients even when they are present. In these cases, we sometimes need to micro-inject nutrients or modify soil pH if practical.


Q. How does Tick Free & Mosquito Free work?

A.    The cedar oil acts as a pheromone interruption agent that impairs their mental capacity and is the residual repellent for 30+ days depending on the saturation. Our raspberry bio-solvent eats through the insects exoskeleton and eradicates it. Eliminates the egg and larvae. The fatty soap acts as a sticker to the insect.

Q. How often should Tick Free or Mosquito-Free be applied?

A.     Every 30 days depending on infestation and saturation. If you are spraying for mosquitoes we recommend that you spray the first application then return in 15 days for a second application. Then resume to every 21- 30 days.

Q.   Can  Tick Free & Mosquito Free be sprayed in the rain?

A.     You can spray in light rain conditions. Don’t spray in heavy downpours. The product will just runoff. Even if rain is expected 1 day after an application the product will stay because of our natural soap ingredient.

Q.    Can Tick Free & Mosquito Free be sprayed near ponds or streams?

A.     You can spray near ponds or steams but do not spray directly into any body of water.

Q.    Is Tick Free or Mosquito-Free harmful around children or animals?

A.     Both Tick Free & Mosquito free are non-toxic to humans and most domestic animals. Yards can be used within 15 minutes of spraying to allow drying time.

Q.   Does Tick Free or Mosquito-Free cause discoloration when sprayed?

A.    No, Tick Free & Mosquito Free does not cause discoloration and is safe for sidewalks, foundations, swing sets etc.
