Ground cover can also assist in weed control and moisture retention, leading to a healthier landscape.

Tree Trimming

Trees are essential parts of your commercial landscape. Not only do they make your property more beautiful, but they also provide shade which may lead to your employees spending more time outside. However, trees sometimes need maintenance, too. Rivers Lawn and Landscape can trim your trees along with your other routine maintenance.

Brush Removal

In areas like Pageland, Monroe, Lancaster, and Kershaw, we frequently need brush removal. First, we obviously need it in the fall when leaves cover our properties. Then, we may need it throughout the year as storms lead to debris on our properties. Brush removal is particularly important for businesses, as you must maintain a clean property for your employees and customers.

Mowing and Trimming

In addition to landscaping services, we also offer routine mowing and trimming. Although most clients and employees likely won’t pay attention to your grass, they will certainly notice it if it is unruly. Therefore, it is important to have a regular mowing service. Rivers Lawn and Landscape offers biweekly mowing services to keep your grass at its appropriate height.

Blowing and Edging

To add the finishing touches to your property’s look, we offer blowing and edging. Edging will create clean lines that clients and employees are sure to notice, and blowing will help clean up any grass clippings, leaves, or other debris that may be crowding your property.

Weed Control

After creating your beautiful landscape for your clients and customers, it is important that you don’t let weeds take it over. Even if your landscape is perfectly designed and maintained, weeds can take away from its beauty. Therefore, proper weed control is essential. Rivers Lawn and Landscape can provide weed control to both prevent and treat weeds.
