100% Organic Lawn Care:  Aquidneck Landworks is proud to offer complete lawn care that is organic to the core. We’ve studied grass inside and out and have come up with a method of growing that reduces water requirements, Reduces the amount of phosphorus-rich fertilizer dumped on the property, Better serves the immune system of the plant, and Increases its tolerance to compaction. This option can be factored into any of our maintenance packages and does not include Herbicide, insecticide, or fungicide solutions.

Conventional Maintenance: This type of maintenance has been practiced for centuries. Large areas of lawn featuring specimen trees and ornamental plants are predominant.

  • Lawn care – Mowing, Fertilizing, Aerating, Thatching, Annual Over seeding, and Irrigation
    • We create a custom annual maintenance package for our clients, this ensures every property is treated efficiently and effectively.
  • Foundation plantings – Hedges, Flowering shrubs, and small Trees will be found in these gardens
    • Regular weeding, pruning, and training is performed to keep plants away from the house, and health
  • Garden Beds – Weeding, Edging, Pruning, Pinching, Deadheading, Irrigation and Fertilizing
    • Regular attention is given to sculpt resident plants into a picturesque landscape element and ecological feature.
  • Cleanups –  Spring and Fall
    • Preparing and recovering from winter is essential to optimize the beauty of a property.

Naturalized Maintenance: This style of maintenance varies dramatically from conventional maintenance. Most recognizable is the diminished lawn area. Leaf litter and debris create the ground covering and can be mulched to aid in the breakdown season to season. The most successful examples of Naturalized landscape celebrate existing conditions such as light, moisture, soils and topography instead of imposing unfit plants ill-suited to the site.

  • Woodland

    • If you are building or living near / in the woods, or looking for an alternative maintenance strategy from conventional maintenance. Aquidneck Landworks customizes maintenance packages to employ permaculture, organic fertilizing, to aid natural processes resulting in a beautiful woodland landscape. Common characteristics of a woodland landscape are dense shade, Forest communities, under story gardens, mature trees, natural features (creeks, mires, bogs, ledge)
  • Wetland / Vernal

    • Living near a wetland or vernal ecology can be incredibly rewarding. Aquidneck Landworks strives to keep naturalistic areas of your garden looking their best and functioning as effectively as possible. We understand plant communities and can transform engineered drainage solutions, and natural wet areas into beautiful, functional, low maintenance, gardens.  Pollinators are being threatened, wetland and vernal communities are imperative to maintain populations of pollinators for generations to come.
  • Coastal Feature
    • Properties near the coast that are regulated by Coastal Resource Management Coalition (CRMC) have a unique opportunity to use plant material as a buffer from storm surges and salt spray. Aquidneck Landworks is certified to work in these sensitive areas and have done so on many jobs of Aquidneck Island, Narragansett, Warwick and Little Compton. Turn your buffer planting into something that produces fruit for family and friends, unique flowers and wind blown forms on plants.
