Step of Green
While developing the creative garden designs for our clients at Wilson WARE Group we have found two things to be true. Good design and good construction are not always hand in hand and often construction and craftsmanship are not either. To alleviate these problems we developed our sister company Step of Green to assist in building and maintaining the gardens we designed or designed by others. Step of Green, handles the two biggest questions our clients have, who can build the garden and who can help me maintain it? We offer a variety of services within Step of Green see below to find out how we can turn your problem into and asset.


Spring/Fall Cleanups
Seasonal cleanups are important to every garden. It is the time when one can both clean and refresh the garden for the growing season to come or prepare the garden harshness of winter. We at Step of Green offer seasonal cleanups to all our seasonal maintenance clients as part of their packages, but are also available to those that want to maintain their garden, just need a little help doing the heavy lifting.
Spring Clean-up (Performed during late March to Early April, depending on weather)
  • Cut all lawn planting edges to assure cleanliness and shapes are properly maintained.
  • Hand work all mulch areas to reduce winter compaction.
  • Spade edge all planting areas to maintain current shape.
  • Remove all erroneous leaves, branches and vegetative debris throughout entire property.
  • Rake lawn areas as needed to reduce matting due to snow build up.
  • When applicable, assure irrigation is working and all heads are working properly. (This may be in conjunction with existing irrigation contractor)

Winter Clean-up (Performed in November, depending on weather)
  • Mow lawn to a height of 2" maximum to protect and prevent winter diseases
  • Cut back all perennials as agreed upon by client.
