New Concrete Driveway, Patio or Walks Recently Installed? ………….. All-Inclusive Lawn Repair Help is on the Way!

What better way to compliment your new concrete driveway, patio and walks than by adding professional lawn repair services to your project.

Our team at Pacocha Landscaping Services, Inc. specializes in making lawn repairs by seed that are not only seamless to the eye, but are friendly to your mower as well.

We have the ability to modify (lower or elevate) surrounding soil grade levels to meet new paved surfaces gradually, over large swaths of area (as/if needed).  Depending on location and elevation of new concrete pavement installed, we will also provide professional feedback as to any/all soil grade changes needed to further improve drainage at your property.

Here are just a few of the services we offer to further improve both lawn and landscape after new concrete has been installed.

  • Noxious/invasive weed control
  • Repair of construction related wheel-ruts and debris removal
  • Mechanical roto-tilling of soil
  • Top soil delivery and installation
  • Grading of existing and/or new soil to properly meet top edges of new pavement
  • Granular fertilization services
  • Manual and/or mechanical premium grass seed planting
  • Installation of vegetative establishment blankets

We truly enjoy growing healthy lawns from seed, that once established, look better and better with each passing season!

Please be sure to let us know if we can be of additional help or answer any questions you may have.  We are happy to assist anyway we can.

Thank you for visiting our site and have a great day!

…..no, ….no, ….it wasn’t mice, it was VOLES………….VOLES did it!!

Nothing like nearing the end of a long, snowy winter, only to find your lawn has been feasted upon by some stealthy burrowing creatures, a small rodent called a vole!

Although not too common, at least for the sites we routinely service here in the northwest suburban Chicago area, but earlier this spring we found several lawns that were fed upon by voles.

Network of tunnels, runways, cut across surface of lawn.

The longer snow cover remains, the greater the chance of voles venturing out of mulch or leaf covered beds, gardens, around tree roots, etc.  and begin feeding on adjacent lawn areas.

Depending on severity of damage and specific grass plant varieties effected, lightly stressed lawn areas can “heal” without much of any additional care.  However, in more extreme cases, the addition of clean top soil to fill any/all low areas, application of a granular starter fertilizer, planting of premium site specific grass seed and a light peat moss covering will go a long way to restoring full lawn density in no time.

Please be sure to contact Pacocha Landscaping Services, Inc. with any questions or lawn improvement requests you may have.  We greatly appreciate your time and look forward to being of assistance any way possible.

Have Snow Shovel – Will Travel!

There are so many efficient ways to clear snow nowadays.  Using anything from rechargeable battery powered electric snow blowers to large hydraulic expanding wing snow plows , snow removal has never been easier.  But in the world of detail oriented snow removal, at precarious residential sites in particular, nothing can replace a quality snow shovel for maintaining the cleanliness and tidiness of a property.

PACOCHA SNOW SHOVELING SERVICE: Our standard residential snow removal service includes manual snow shoveling along the base of any/all overhead garage doors, main entry/stoop, stairs, etc. (any area not accessible by plow truck or snow removal machine).

For those of you that prefer to clean your own snow, here is one of our favorite snow shovels……….. The SnowPlow Shovel.  After many, many years of commercial use, these shovels continue to amaze and flawlessly perform for us.  We highly recommend them!!

We Clean Buried Downspout Drains!

Through regular scheduled maintenance, our team at Pacocha Landscaping Services, Inc. can help ensure your existing buried landscape drain pipes are free and clear of foreign debris and remain fully functional for many years to come.

We not only routinely clean existing buried downspout drain systems, but possess the skills needed to repair, modify and install new underground drains as well.  From color-matched custom residential aluminum downspout modifications to complete landscape drainage improvements, we can successfully divert excess downspout water runoff to an alternate on-site location.

PRO-TIP:  Always keep buried sump pump drain systems independent of nearby buried downspout drain pipes.  Never connect the two to a single outlet point!  Buried downspout drains have a tendency to clog over time when not properly maintained, especially those not protected from entry of leaves, tree branches and seed, roofing shingle sediment and other debris.

Please be sure to contact Pacocha Landscaping Services, Inc. with any questions or service requests you may have.  We greatly appreciate the opportunity and look forward to being of assistance.  Thank you for visiting our site and have a great day!

Lily of the Valley………… sometimes a little bit, is too much!!

Lily of the Valley, along with Liriope and Bishop’s Weed, is another one of those fast spreading invasive perennial plants that seem to constantly overstep their original plant bed boundaries.

Lily of the Valley is a perennial groundcover forming plant we find in more mature landscapes (rarely planted on purpose in modern day gardens) and is known to tolerate extreme environmental conditions (drought, clay soil, etc.).

Lily of the Valley GROWS, and GROWS, and GROWS!!

Lily of the Valley seems to withstand full sun once established, but grows very well in deep shade.

Please be sure to contact our team at Pacocha Landscaping Services, Inc. if you need professional help removing unwanted Lily of the Valley plants or any other stubborn vegetation found overtaking your garden.  Thank you very much for visiting our site and have a great day!
