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

Being in one of the new neighborhoods we were seeing a large number of landscape companies doing work in the area. After talking with several people Mansfield was clearly the company that offered the best combination of quality, price and service. In meeting with Steve he not only offered excellent ideas for a design, but personally walked us through the nursery, pointing out plants and trees that would be good for our project, even to the point of allowing us to select the exact trees to be planted. We especially like Mansfield's practice of bringing a large number and variety of smaller plants to our house so that we could see how they looked with existing plants. The workers were very patient and moved plants around where ever we asked and pointed out ones that would be good or not good together. The finished product far exceeded our expectation and we would highly recommend Mansfield Landscaping.

We are delighted with the beautiful landscaping work at our home. The workers were enjoyable to have at our home and the result is even better than we had hoped for. Now we see a gorgeous palm tree and other plantings. It is wonderful to walk in the front door and have our new view. It is a lovely walk through a garden. We couldn’t be happier.

I first used Mansfield Landscaping a year ago after seeing the unique design work Steve Mansfield did at a neighbor's house. The tree specimens used were more impressive than those typically found in our village and this was the result of Mansfield having a massive inventory and variety of trees, shrubs, and other landscaping materials at his huge nursery in Yalaha-about 30 minutes from The Villages and right next door to the famous Yalaha Bakery. After getting over my initial reservations about Steve's quirky personality, I was thrilled to discover the genuine Steve-a truly unusual individual; a caring and considerate character who gives personal service and attention to his clients! My first job turned out so well that I recently used him and his hard-working crew again to re-landscape an entire house, including the fabrication of a magnificent water fall and stream. While there are many companies doing business in The Villages, Steve's knowledge of the landscaping profession combined with competitive pricing and his emphasis on making his clients happy and satisfied is proven by accepting no money until the job is completely finished. Steve "cranks" out the best landscape design and implementation in The Villages.

If you want to see an absolutely FANTASTIC job done by Steve Mansfield and his crew... come by my house tomorrow and you will be amazed.

Steve's been advising me for years to change what I had originally developed into something a little more stylish, but being the hard-headed Italian I am, I kept refusing until this year. I'm sick of our cold winters that kill all my pretty flowers so I let him convince me to change it all to a completely new look. I love to work with Steve, he sure knows his landscaping stuff and he may come off with a gruff exterior, but down deep, the man is a teddy bear and very easy to work with.

Oh Boy, I can't tell you how excited I am. The transformation is unbelievable. Steve and his guys were on the job for 2 days and through their creative talents came up with a wall/bed design utilizing many of my existing trees, unlike anything I have seen in the past.

We made our decision to go with Mansfield Landscaping after seeing beautifully landscaped homes. First of all, we were very pleased with how easy it was to get in touch with them and to schedule an appointment in a short amount of time. Steve was very thorough with information about everything we needed to know on the phone, and our meeting with Ron was very pleasant. He listened to our ideas and came up with just what we were looking for within our budget. The work crew were very courteous and the job was completed in the time agreed upon with no payment until everything was finished to our satisfaction. We have received many compliments about our landscaping already. We especially love looking at the gorgeous triple Sylvester palm as we sit in our lanai.

Thank you for a job well done!

Steve is an incredibly talented landscaper... definitely not a run of the mill type. He selects plantings with care and thought for locations and overall design. An added bonus is his conscientiousness towards his customers and the pride he takes in his work... all with good reason. His workers are polite and efficient about cleanup after installing plants. I do not hesitate to give him my highest recommendation.

I would like to recommend Mansfield Landscaping to anyone who might want some quality work. I called a week ago yesterday and one week later my work was done. I went from having the worst yard in the neighborhood to one of the nicest. Steve is almost annoyingly accommodating and insistent on pleasing. He recommended plants of different colors, something I wouldn't have thought of. My favorite part is the wall - the pieces look like mica. The supervisor was the nicest person and a good communicator. He really knew what he was doing, having worked for Steve for years and due to the volume of work Mansfield does. I feel so happy today, like you would if you just got a new car!
