When you look out onto your lawn, there might be a mixture of different textures and colors. Ideally, the grass should have a uniform color in almost any neighborhood, including Leslieville and Birch Cliff. To maintain your lawn in top form, it’s critical to hire expert landscaping staff on a weekly basis. Take a cue from the professionals, and read over these professional tips that will help your lawn thrive through the seasons.

Adjusting the Sprinklers

The first step to any good landscaping practice is proper watering. From Birch Cliff to The Beaches, every community has sprinklers that dot their lawns. Professionals can adjust these sprinklers in order to direct the water across every grassy surface. Watering Leslieville or West Hill sidewalks isn’t the goal when the sprinklers activate. Because servicing Scarborough with landscaping expertise is our goal, our professionals will always evaluate the sprinklers as a lawn-care component.

Cutting One-Third at a Time

Servicing Scarborough, Birch Cliff, West Hill and Leslieville means that our professionals cut a lot of grass. However, we don’t scalp the lawn with every pass. Expert landscaping workers only trim about one-third of the grass’s height at a time. This cutting strategy encourages rapid growth while still preserving the photosynthesis process. Whether professionals are performing interlocking or sod laying processes at a West Hill or The Beaches home, grass-trimming rules are always followed.

Strategic Fertilizing and Aerating

The Beaches, Birch Cliff, Leslieville and West Hill homes will always require yearly fertilizing and aerating. The lawn needs the extra nutrients from specific fertilizers, even when servicing Scarborough and its well-kept grasses. Aeration is the process of pulling cylindrical soil sections from the lawn as a landscaping improvement. Birch Cliff, The Beaches, Leslieville and West Hill lawns might have a dotted appearance for a few weeks, but the pulled soil allows critical oxygen to reach those grass roots. Schedule aeration when you have other landscaping needs at the property, such as strategic tree planting or tree removal.

On the Lookout for Pests

Although servicing Scarborough, Leslieville, The Beaches and Birch Cliff on a regular basis rarely turns up any problems, pests can move in at any time. Excessive ant populations, grubs and other pests might burrow into the grass and cause spotty dieback. Allow professionals to evaluate the grass in order to devise an eradication plan. Professionals can remove the pests without damaging the lawn.

Keeping it Green

Expert landscapers servicing Scarborough and other areas might use other tactics to care for your lawn. Thatch removal, for example, is the process of weeding out the thick sections of lawn that might be hindering its growth. Your lawn may also need seeding or sodding at some point after winter. Expert care means that the grass will be green for most of the year.

Contact Sullivan Lawn and Snow Services today for all of your lawn service needs. Servicing Scarborough, West Hill, The Beaches and more, our team will be pleased to evaluate your residential or commercial lawn. Our goal is to keep the grass healthy for many years into the future.

Landscaping can add beauty, warmth and value to a home and the best news about landscaping is that it doesn’t have to be expensive or time-consuming to make it happen. All it takes is a plan, some outside work and a desire for a great looking yard.
One landscaping tip that many like is planting evergreen shrubs. Evergreen shrubs are beautiful and their leaves and needles remain on them all year long. Placed near your home, such as in front of corners, they can soften the lines of a home and give it a more inviting appearance.

An attractive walkway can make going up and down your lawn, easy and make your backyard look beautiful. Use material that is the same or similar to what is on the exterior of your home such as stone or brick. This will connect the path to your home in a beautiful way. Another landscaping tip is to add an outdoor seating area. How about installing a patio near the edge of your lawn, away from your home? You could build it near trees or tall flowers. This will create a lovely, private area where you could read, take a nap or entertain family and friends.

Giving your backyard a rustic look is another landscaping tip. Garden centers often sell old-fashioned wagon wheels and split-rail wood fencing that give a rustic and old-time look. Add a few great looking rocks and pretty flowers and you’ve got a look that is old-fashioned and appealing. Another landscaping tip that many like and have been using for years is illuminating walkways and other areas in your yard. Many landscaping lights are affordable, make a home more attractive and provide safety to steps and sidewalks. They come in a variety of sizes and shapes and can instantly highlight your backyard!

Adding outdoor container plants can add interest and beauty to doorways and patios. Container plants, especially large tropical plants, look great and make the outside of a home look colorful and inviting! Touching up the mulch is another backyard tip. A fresh layer, applied to your garden beds, looks colorful, neat and clean. In addition, mulch is cheap and easy to apply. Areas like The Beaches, West Hill and Birch Cliff are examples of lovely landscaping. Check these areas out soon!

Power-washing outside dirty surfaces is an easy and affordable way to make the outside of your home look clean and refocuses the beauty of your home on your landscape. Power washers can be rented or purchased. They can clean paved surfaces, fences, brick and vinyl siding. Planting some instant color next to a garden patio or around a water fountain can add beauty and ambiance to your backyard and most importantly, it is affordable! With the many plants available, you are limited only by your imagination. In addition, no matter the season, it is always a good idea to do some pruning chores. Dead branches can take away the beauty of a home; however, by pruning these areas, your home will look neater, organized and lovely.

To conclude, creating a scenic backyard is important and can make a huge difference in the overall look of a home. Try one or more of the above tips and enjoy the great outdoors!

No matter how perfect a person’s home looks on the outside, it will be impossible for them to have a perfect looking home if they don’t have a perfect yard. When people drive past a person’s home or pulls into their driveway, the landscaping is something that is very hard to ignore. Most people want their yards to look good, and many of them even take some time to try and make them look good, but they are often unsuccessful because it takes a lot of landscaping work to make a yard look good. This is why many people make the smart decision, and decide to let Sullivan Lawn and Snow Services do their landscaping for them.

Correctly laying sod

If a person wants to move into a place that has a dirt yard, and wants to quickly get at great looking yard, the quickest way for them to get this is by sod lying. If a person decides that they want to lay sod, in order for this to be done properly, they have to know how exactly to prepare their yard for sod laying; they have to know which type of sod they should be using; and they have to make sure that they lay the sod down correctly. These three things are all things that most people are not familiar with, but Sullivan Services is an expert on this matter.

Tree removal

Sullivan Services is especially useful to people that decide they want to remove a tree from their yard. Removing a tree can be very dangerous, because if a person wants to cut one down, they have to know exactly which angle to cut it at on multiple sides in order to guarantee that it falls in the direction that they want it to fall in. In addition to having to cut the tree right, once this is done, they then have to remove the stump of the tree, and this is something that can be very difficult for a person if they don’t know how to take a tree up by its roots. If a person does not know what they are doing, it can take them days just to remove a little part of a tree stump from the ground. If a person let’s an expert do it for them, they can stay out of danger, and they can have the expert do some landscaping to fix the hole in the ground that is left once a tree is removed.

Tree Planting

If a person doesn’t have any trees, but wants to get some, the best thing for them to do is let an expert plant them for them, because there is a science to planting trees. If a person gets even a little thing wrong when it comes to tree planting, they can end up with a died tree. This is the reason why a lot of commercial businesses use Sullivan Services to get their trees planted. If a person lets an expert handle landscaping for them, they will know for a fact that their landscaping is being done correctly.


If you have a commercial business or a residential home, you will need professional tree removal services at some point. We can help you tackle this task effectively and efficiently because our removal specialists are highly trained. Locals contact our company for a number of reasons. However, there are ten reasons why most business owners and homeowners use our services regularly.


The main reason why many people in West Rouge contact our company is because we employ certified arborists. Our specialists understand how to maintain trees and care for them. We also help our clients plant their trees in key locations.

Before our workers can receive a certification, they must pass a test, which is issued by the International Society of Arboriculture.

Emergency Tree Removal Services

In emergency situations, you can contact our company for additional help. We help locals remove various trees and branches after a severe storm, such as a hurricane. Expert advice is very valuable following a dangerous weather event. Our technicians can pinpoint specific trees that can be repaired and trees that must be cut down.

Tree Planting

If you plan to build a home or a facility on an empty lot in West Hill, additional trees may be needed on the landscape. Our specialists understand which trees are ideal for certain weather conditions on a property. Depending on the project location, we will select trees that can handle heavy rainfall, intense sunlight, or certain soil requirements.

A Variety Of Soil Options

Besides the traditional services, our specialists can provide other services too. We understand how to aerate soil, brace trees, prune trees, and remove trees in the safest way possible.

Disease Diagnosis

Whenever a sick tree is noticed on the property, you must contact a professional arborist immediately. A skilled arborist can examine the problem and determine if a tree will spread on the property. After a thorough inspection, several procedures will be implemented to solve the issue.

Preventative Maintenance

Our employees can spot infections before they are extremely noticeable. As a result, if you hire one of our specialists regularly for check-ups, your trees can remain healthy throughout the year. Trees should never be pruned by someone who lacks the proper knowledge because incorrect trimming procedures will damage the tree. By hiring a professional, the trees will not be at risk; trained technicians always use specialized tools during advanced projects.

Professionals Comply With Regulations

In some cases, there may be local regulations for traditional tree removal on a property. Our professional arborists understand theses regulations. Our clients in East York appreciate this because improper removal procedures can lead to a hefty fine.


When we tackle tree removal projects in Beaches, we always offer insurance. Insurance is important because accidents can occur during the removal process.


Spring is coming and with it the mess that has been hiding in your yard under the snow all winter long. That last fall mowing you never got to. All of the kids toys forgotten outside pressing davits in your yard. Those leaves that the first snowfall covered. Every tree branch snapped off by a storm. They all will soon be coming to the light of day.

Now is the time to start thinking about what kind of landscaping you are going to want and need once the snow finally melts. At a minimum you will need a reseeding for your lawn. More than likely you will have to have some maintenance done. Trees will need to be trimmed, decks will need to be refinished and flower beds will have to be planted.

Scarborough’s Choice

Sullivan Landscaping will help your Scarborough, West Hill, East York or Beaches home or business look great for the summer. We can clear the debris away and prepare the lawn for a spring seeding. If you want a really lush lawn right from the start we can even re-sod your yard.

Moving up from the lawn, the next thing on your landscaping list is probably your flower beds. A small retaining wall around your flower beds will help keep the soil in place instead of scattered across your side walks and lawns. With a wide assortment of stone types to choose from you will be able to find the perfect look to suit your needs. Have us pair the retaining wall up with some designer paving stones and you will be the talk of the neighbourhood even before your flowers grow.

After the retaining wall and paving stones are in place our landscaping specialists will start on the flower beds themselves. We will be sure to prepare the beds with the very best worm castings and soil to ensure the health of your perennials and annuals. Our specialists will even help you choose the best plants and flowers to bring out the beauty of your yard.

Take a look at the hedges and shrubs around your property. They will need our attention too. An overgrown hedge can give a building an almost derelict appearance. We will remove the dead trigs and branches and trim them back to their former glory. A properly maintained hedge is the perfect highlight to your yard.

Of course there are the trees that dropped all those leaves last fall and the limbs that damaged your lawn over the winter. The broken stubs and dead limbs will have to go, not only for appearance, but to ensure the health of your tree. We can trim and prune all of that away. If it is too late for your tree or it is blocking your view we can remove it from your property right down to the roots.

Call Sullivan Landscaping to add Tree’s

Or maybe you want to go in the other direction and add a few trees. We can work with you to decide what trees will look best in your yard. With a minimum of fuss for you that shady back yard will soon be ready for summer.
