good balanced nutritional program is only one essential part in the establishment and maintenance of a healthy lawn.

The other necessary factors regarding proper maintenance are proper watering, and frequent mowing with a sharp mower blade at 2″ to 4″ cutting height.  All of these are needed for optimum results to maintain a lush green lawn. Call us today about your lawn care needs.

It is never too late to start thinking about what lawn care maintenance program will be a right fit for your lawn.



Sunshine Landscaping works with you in developing a landscape design that works for you and your property. We effectively plan all the design stages and work with all the spaces in your landscape. Whether your property is a small back yard garden, a peaceful dwelling, or anything in between, Sunshine Landscaping will work with you to achieve a Master Plan that meets all of your landscaping goals.

Landscape design will help to establish the characteristics of the garden space and its relationships to the plantings that you would like to have within the defined space.  All spaces are defined and described by the shape, size, finish materials and the elements found in or around them.


We would set up a time for you to meet with our designer and talk about your design project. He would draw up a Landscape Design that will meet your needs and budget.  Designs range from very basic plans to very detailed, which can include plant material, trees/shrubs, hardscape and waterscapes.

We can design a plan that is right for you, then you can purchase the plan and decide to tackle the work yourself or get the plan for FREE and let Sunshine Landscaping do the Landscaping work for you!

Our design work fee is calculated by the size of the project. That would be discussed with the Landscape Designer, when you meet to discuss the project and all the details.

The Early Spring service provides the required nutrients to start your lawn on the right track after a long winter season. Controlled release nitrogen and potassium are applied for sustained growth, hardiness and green-up throughout the Spring. This treatment also provides pre-emergent crabgrass control, which stops seeds from germinating. Broadleaf weeds will be controlled as needed. To prepare lawns for the first treatment, a light raking of the lawn and removing the sticks will be sufficient. While power raking, thatching or aerating are beneficial, they are not necessary for the fertilizer program to be effective. Pre-emergent crabgrass control creates a barrier on top of the soil that prevents roots from developing when seedlings germinate. Normal raking of the lawn after this application will not alter its effectiveness. However, a mechanical procedure that vigorously disturbs the top half inch of soil could break-up the protective barrier. Since this treatment will prevent seeds from germinating, the barrier should be broken up and new loam applied to successfully grow new desirable turf seedlings.

The Late Spring service continues to provide seasonal nutrient needs and broadleaf weed controls as required. Damaging surface insects will be controlled as needed. Crabgrass control will be applied to problem areas to prevent infestation later in the summer.

During the heat of summer plants require special attention. This granular treatment provides increased Potassium and controlled release nitrogen to help guard against summer drought and turf diseases without stressing the grass plant.

Problems that are dealt with during the summer include Yellow Nutsedge, a warm season perennial weed. Nutsedges have a light green color, upright growth habit and grow faster than the surrounding grass species, resulting in a non-uniform stand of grass. Controlling Yellow Nutsedge is difficult because each plant produces small root tubers. If you try to pull the weeds the tubers will be left behind to produce new plants. Common grass and broadleaf herbicides will not control Yellow Nutsedge; several applications of specialized herbicides may be required for successful control.

Post emergent crabgrass control may be necessary as rainy weather can break up the preventative barrier, allowing seeds to germinate as the weather warms. Outbreaks of spotted spurge are common at this time and we will spot treat for these problems.

Treatment encourages continued rebound from summer stress. At this time of the season turfgrass plants are regenerating both leaf blades and root system expansion. Granular or liquid turf fertilizer will continue to bolster turfgrass recovery. Broadleaf weeds and surface insects will be controlled as required.
  Sunshine Landscaping Company offers a full range of lawn care services designed to provide your lawn with the appropriate services at the appropriate time, ensuring the health and beauty of your lawn.

Sunshine’s Turf Specialties seasonally appropriate services include:

  1. Fall Treatment (R5) The treatment improves stress tolerance to insure winter survival.

Additional Recommendations to the above Lawn Care Program:

  1. Preventative White Grub Control (GP) This preventative service to control white grubs is highly suggested for sunny lawns in the central Massachusetts area.
  2. Fungus and Disease Control Diseases often break out in late spring. Consider scheduling a preventative application to extend the rich, green look of your spring lawn. 
  3. Annual Limestone Treatment (LS) The annual treatment of limestone each spring or fall helps to bring soil pH into the proper range of 6.2-7.0.
  4. Soil Testing Our standard procedure is to test the soil every three years.
