All litter we create, we take away.

Landscaping

Our educated Landscape Designer will assist you with any landscape needs. Yard Essentials specializes in smaller landscape plantings and designs such as flower or shrub beds.

Snow Removal

Yard Essentials offers two types of snow removal options.  
    For optimum snow removal services, Yard Essentials offers winter contracts beginning in October and ending in March.  For a monthly price, depending on lot size and desired snow removal, we will take care of any snowfalls within the time declared on the contract.  This means your snow will be cleared as early as 6am the next morning depending on how much snow fell.  This way you can rest assured that your driveway and sidewalks will be cleared as quickly as Yard Essentials can remove it.  Another pro/con to contracts is that no matter how much it snows the customer pays the same amount each month.
      Another option for our customers is to call in when you require snow removal.  This option is not as dependable as we will always put our contract snow removal customers first.  This means that your snow may not be removed until a couple days after it snows.  In a winter with heavy snowfalls, this method may get expensive. In winters with light snowfalls this method is quite affordable.
