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

Steve Mansfield and his AMAZING crew just finished landscaping our yard. We sat down with Steve on a Sunday evening (yes, he came out on his day off!!), designed the concept of the yard, we went to his nursery on Tuesday and they finished the entire project the following Monday (it would have been sooner but it was over Thanksgiving weekend and they didn't work that Thursday). Steve personally picked out our Queen palms and put in the most beautiful triple Sylvester Palm we've ever seen. As other posts have stated before, he brought out almost double the plants used in the yard to ensure we had plenty of choices. They lay everything out in the beds before they plant so we had an opportunity to move things around to our liking. After everything was completed my husband and I have agreed that Mansfield Landscaping went WAY above and beyond or expectations. We live on a street that is highly traveled (across from the Charlotte Pool and mailbox) and so many people have stopped to tell us how beautiful it is. We recommend Mansfield Landscaping to anyone interested in working with a company that produces professional results and cares so much about his clients.

I wanted to take a minute to personally thank you for the great job you and your staff did on my back yard at my house. Everything turned out so beautiful. Every time I call you, I receive great, on time service at a fair price. You cannot ask for anything more than that.

Thanks again for having your staff stop by and put out the colorful annuals, just in time for Stephanies wedding. It really added that finishing touch to my already beautiful yard. Thanks for everything.

I recently had my villa landscaping done by Steve Mansfield and his crew. They worked hard for 3 days and did an excellent job. I am very happy with the job and everyone who has seen it has told me it looks great. I was quoted 20-30 plants but was given many more to make my property look great at no charge. I was so surprised when Steve called to tell me he was having my driveway, walkway and patio power washed so that the dirt from their work would be cleaned up. True to his word, he sent someone over to do the work and not only does my property look great, but he also cleaned the street where there was dirt from the rock piles. I would recommend him to anyone looking to have their landscape done immediately and done well.

INCREDIBLE WORK BY MANSFIELD LANDSCAPING!! After obtaining numerous landscaping estimates to help transform our extremely large, unattractive corner lot in the Village of Largo we hired Mansfield. We sure made the right choice!! The owners, Steve and Ron, were extremely professional and prompt and spent a lot of time talking with us on the phone and in person to make sure we got what we wanted. As promised, they started the work 10 days later and COMPLETELY transformed the look of our entire home!! Our property went from the "eyesore of the neighborhood" (a quote from one of our neighbors) to stunning!! I am not exaggerating one bit. During the time Ron and his excellent crew were planting the 11 very large palm trees and countless plants and flowers and the past week when we've been watering all the landscaping at least 100 people have stopped by in their cars and golf carts to comment on what an amazing job Mansfield did!!! We couldn't be happier and can 100% recommend them to everyone.

We hired Mansfield Landscaping recently and were pleased with the results. Steve,Ron and their crews showed up when they said they would and finished when they said they would. The selection of plants, shrubs and trees were numerous and all were very healthy. They assisted with the design and wanted to make sure we were pleased with the final product, which we were. I would use them again and highly recommend Mansfield Landscaping to anyone who is considering an upcoming landscaping project.

My husband & I are very pleased with both the staff and the work done by Mansfield Landscaping. They are very hard working and knowledgeable people who have given us a wonderful, relaxing new water feature and yard. Their work ethic is second to none and our job was completed in a very timely fashion - from our first visit to the nursery to the estimate and the eventually completion of the job! We want to thank Steve, Ron, John and all of their employees for creating our new look! We love it!

I am extremely pleased with the landscaping just completed by Mansfield Landscaping at my residence on Janeann Terrace. This is the 2nd time we’ve used Mansfield—shortly after we moved to The Villages in 2007 and this recent job. They know what they are doing, listen to and work with the customer. Steve Mansfield is one fair and honest person to do business with, his landscaping team is diligent, hard working with polite, pleasant personalities. I would highly recommend Mansfield to anyone interested in doing any landscaping. There is no longer a concern as to which lawn mower will be in my yard—and and I really like my ‘LESS IS MORE’ LANDSCAPING. Many positive comments have come from my neighbors. Thank you Mansfield Landscaping.
