Landscaping Care Guide

How do you care for your new landscape?

  1. We recommend that you trim plants as nesessary every 6 weeks during the growing season.
  2. We recommend you spray Round Up on the edges and around plants every 6 weeks in growing season (do not spray when windy and do not spray the plants).
  3. Short Term Watering: Water everyday for the first 10 days by hand in addition to your sprinkler system. Give special attention to hand watering palm trees and any transplants. You are EXEMPT from sprinkler system watering restrictions for 60 days after new landscaping, allowing you to water from 4PM to 10AM everyday. WE RECOMMEND USING THE SPRINKLER SYSTEM 4 DAYS PER WEEK FOR THE FIRST 60 DAYS.
  4. Remember bottom branches on all palm trees turn yellow and die, especially Sylvester palms. If more than 1 row starts dying at a time, now or 10 years later, that means the palms NEED MORE WATER. THERE ARE NO RESTRICTIONS FOR WATERING WITH YOUR HOSE.
  5. Long Term Watering: You're allowed 2 days at 45 minutes per zone. ANYTIME WITH A HOSE.

We do not guarantee any Transplants. Heavy watering is recommended for the first 3-6 weeks.

Plants & Tree Care

We recommend you hire a company to do it. If you want to do it yourself, following steps 1 & 2:

  1. Fertilize and use epsom salts on all palms 4 times per year.
  2. Every time you cut back roses, or any flowering plant, fertilize them, otherwise 3 or 4 times a years is plenty. Remember, all color plants are sporadic & can look good one day and bad the next. If you don't want that, then use only green hearty plants.

What Your Neighbors Are Saying About Mansfield Landscaping

I just had my entire landscape done by Steve Mansfield of Mansfield Landscaping. He did an excellent job, they had a huge job in front on them, because I have styled my scape closer to "up north" look because of the style of my house. Lots of plants, trees and loads of color flowers. This requires constant maintenance, on my part, which I love but not in the heat we had this summer. Consequently, it was overgrown, weedy, and not pretty. Steve and his crew came in, redid each bed, added more rock and/or mulch, and put in a few new colored plants for me. He also trimmed existing trees and shrubs and I'm very picky on what I like, and they did exactly as I requested. This is the 2nd time I've used Steve and I would HIGHLY recommend him.

We are very pleased with the results in both our yard and lanai. Steve warned us some plants were not hardy and when the frosts got them, he replaced a lot of them without being asked, and with no charge. We thoroughly recommend Mansfield Landscaping.

Kit Hughes (The Villages, Hadley)

We highly recommend Mansfield Landscaping if you expect 100+% satisfaction in a timely manner with no hassles. We recently engaged them to make additions and improvements to our current landscaping. We were able to quickly schedule a meeting and have the project completed in a very short time frame. They understood exactly what we were looking for - in fact the results more than met our expectations at which time we requested additional work which was also completed within a few days! They are very professional and an absolute delight with which to do business.

I just wanted to thank Mansfield for doing a great job at our courtyard villa in the Villages. the place looks beautiful and we have had a number of nice comments from the neighbors. The work was done in a timely and clean manner. We got just want we wanted and love the way the place looks. Thanks.

We went out and checked out their nursery recently. We found that not only did they have the best prices of any of the nurseries in the area, but also that their plants were in the best shape of any of the other nurseries. When we begin our spring landscaping in a couple of weeks (we like to do most of our landscaping ourselves), we will be buying all of our plants/trees from Mansfield.

We discovered Mansfield Landscaping through our friends in the Village of Hadley. They gave us a good review of Steve's work, so we decided to visit his showroom/nursery. We are from Minnesota and know NOTHING about palm trees! We were looking for an education and lots of information about Florida landscaping.

Steve was so great with us! He showed us many different varieties of palm trees, along with plants that do well in this area. He also has an excellent display of both stone walls and rock--you can really see the different colors so you know what you are getting.

Later that same day, Steve came to our villa, came up with a plan and gave us an estimate. Three business days later, his crew showed up with a truckload of between 70 and 80 plants and the palm trees we wanted. Steve brings many, many plants to the job so you can select the ones you want--which is a real advantage, in my opinion.

The crew finished the job on time, and did an outstanding job! We had both our front and back yards done, so there was a lot of dirt on our concrete. They cleaned up everything and did a great job at that also!

Our job was completed a week ago, and since then, Steve has been back at least 3 times to check on what we think, how everything looks, and to make sure we are watering like we should be. His follow-up service is excellent.

After contracting with Mansfield Landscaping, they were hard at work the next day. Within three days we went from boring to beautiful. We are the first on our block to have the landscaping changed from the original to something unique. To say it stands out is an understatement. We couldn't be more pleased.
