Estate Gates

An automatic gate that looks great and opens when you’re going in and out of your driveway can be a great addition to home security but also the design and aesthetics of your entire property. Whether in rain or other inclement weather, an automated gate that can open and close with remote access like a garage or via a code you punch in keeps your security at the forefront.

Fencing Options

An outdated and crumbling fence may line your property right now, but it doesn’t have to remain that way. With so many new cost effective choices to choose from: wood varieties, stone varieties, and other natural looking materials; the only limitation is your imagination. Functional property marking and also great looking choices can really bring a home landscape together.

Invisible Fences

Don’t forget about your canine companions and their safety as well. An invisible fence installation is a great way to effectively and safely control where your dogs can and cannot go. With neighborhoods, roads, and our area becoming busier and busier than ever, this is a great way to be sure your pup won’t be out and about on their own.

Don’t let the summer weather pass by your home landscaping updates and be sure to take advantage of the daylight. For the best in Fencing Company Rockland NY look no further than 30 years of local expertise right here at Pro Cut Landscaping. 845-727-8815

With so many options to choose from when organizing your home landscaping this spring, a retaining wall can make a great looking and functional addition to your outdoor space. Here we’ll look at some of the most obvious if not under used ideas you should be considering for any stone work or masonry projects this year.

1. Form or Function? Both?

Retaining walls have traditionally been made with many materials and for many different reasons. From basic brick or stone walls to advanced walkway siding, you should be considering both form and function when it comes to this sort of project. Understanding the layout of the landscape such as water/rain flow, differences in elevation, and positioning should all be factors you consider before laying out a specific plan.

2. Natural stone? Cut stone? Brick? Blue stone? Other options?

This will depend on the first part, both form and function. Different types of materials can or cannot be used for a wide range of reasons. For example, a wall that uses natural stone will be naturally more porous with gaps that allow water flow to pass through, however this could be a problem down the road depending on volume and erosion. What looks better with your home’s architecture? What looks better with the surrounding wilderness or woods if there is any? You should be looking to work with the environment not boldly against it.

3. Masonry Specialists

These sorts of projects require a fair bit of planning, training, and experience to pull off correctly. Knowing how to work with rain runoff as opposed to simply overlooking it, soil densities based on moisture levels, root structures, pipes and electric lines, as well as proper insurance are an absolute must. This mean you should be looking to work only with a specialized landscaping company who is known for their masonry handiwork.

With even just a few minutes of researching online or from your neighbors in the community you can find a great retaining wall specialist.

With summer almost here, that means: rain, warmer weather, sun, and a lot of commercial landscaping to consider. Depending on the size of your businesses property, you may be needing a singularly focused landscaping regiment or one that can cover an entire district’s business center. Its more important than ever to ensure that the landscaping contractor you’re working with is dedicated, local, and efficient.

Let’s look at some pre-requisites to consider before hiring any landscape company.

1. Size of Fleet / Company

A friend of yours with a pickup truck and a shovel does not qualify as a landscaping company for commercial properties and needs. Be sure that anyone you consider has a large enough fleet that you are part of their weekly schedule and not waiting for work to be done you’ve hired them for. This can simply come down to the size and scope of the landscapers capabilities.

2. Beyond Lawn Mowing

As you may know, lawn mowing and weed whacking is the simplest of landscaping work. Be sure that anyone you’re hiring for this purpose only, has a solid fleet size, up to date insurance, up to date mowing equipment, and is effective in scheduling and time frames for completion.

3. Larger Projects

Landscapers are way more than lawn maintenance these days. For any sort of larger projects (i.e., retaining walls, water features, sprinkler systems, and so on), be sure that you know the questions to ask and what to look for in a landscaping firm. Knowing even just a few of the important aspects of a project can make all the difference in knowing who to hire.

Spring is here, rain has arrived, and so has the warm weather. That means added responsibilities for business owners and business center managers. Be sure to ask questions and get free consultations on any and every landscaping need you have this warm season.

Last┬ásummer had great weather but it has been very hot, with multiple days in the 90’s in a row. If you have a pool, you’re probably getting some great usage out of it this year. But if your pool area is outdated or damaged, with broken tiling, cracks, damaged coping, or other varieties of weathering, it may be the best time of the year for you to consider a remodel.

Pool Remodelling Rockland County NY

In ground pools are more open to the elements and require more upkeep than standard smaller above ground pools. With that said, in ground pools offer the option for truly spectacular designs and pool side landscaping that really create a wonderful summer space for you and your family.

Things to consider may be different tile varieties for example. If your current design has many small tiles that have fallen off consistently over the years and are now damaged, replacement larger more sturdy tiles may be a far more cost effective and good looking option. Cracks and damages in the pools coping? Make an update this year with different stone, different color schemes, and a different look and feel altogether.

Plant varieties and areas like natural stone can really add to your pool side landscaping. Also, you may consider an automated sprinkler system to keep everything well hydrated and vibrant, not only for your pool area but also for your entire yard and any garden areas prone to sun damage.

With cold weather and dangerous conditions really starting to become a regular occurrence, there is no greater way to ring in 2019 then with plans to tackle the sort of ice and cold we’ve been and will continue to experience. As we’ve already seen this winter, temperatures can plummet and roads and walkways can freeze and become treacherous for both cars and pedestrians. Considering this, it’s important to make sure that you are prepared when the worst of the winter hits.

1. Having A Plan

You and your family should devise and stick to a plan when it comes to ice and snow. Whether that means getting out there ever hour in a strong storm to clear paths and shovel or whether that means hiring out a professional snow removal contractor to manage the storms and get rid of ice, it’s something you should stick to. Having some idea of how a snow bound day will go is better than trying to figure out things on the fly. This small piece can make a difference between getting to work on time or being late, having a safe and walkable driveway or not, just to name a few.

2. Being Prepared

Here we’re not referring to having shovels and rock salt, but actually preparedness in terms of knowing what sort of weather is coming. If you are completely taken by surprise when a major storm hits, its a terrible feeling and can leave you falling behind. Recall in the middle of November this year when we had a major storm that dropped a good 10 inches of snow, and it basically shut down the entire region. Commuters who normally got home at 6pm got home past 11pm at night, that is the definition of unpreparedness. Be sure that you know what is coming.

3. Finding A Snow Management Team

Here there are a few ways you can tackle this sort of question, who is the best snow removal and ice management contractor in our area? Who will serve my specific needs be they commercial or residential? Who will offer me the best value for snow removal and who will also be the fastest and on time? These are important questions to ask yourself and the company you are considering. It’s important to not simply leave it to them, you should always ask these basic questions and determine who really does make the best contractor in the area.

Snow and ice have already left our region unprepared, delayed, and dangerous. Don’t make the same mistakes that the highway department and NYC has already-made this year. Do a little bit of basic planning and make sure you’re personally prepared for the worst of the winter, even when the country or whole area may not be. You can in just a few minutes online or even asking around determine the best team for the job in our area. So be sure to get out there now, we’re already into December.

The seasons have changed and we’re starting to experience dangerous snow and ice. Here are some options when it comes to commercial snow removal and ice management for your business.

1. Don’t Do It Yourself

This is an option that seems like a no brainer. It is not fun and unrealistic for business owners to do it themselves. Getting to the office or location early to then plow or lay salt is not something many of us are able to do. So don’t take this option.

2. Who To Hire

Making sure you are considering a local landscaping contractor who has a high number of trucks and who works every day of the year is a must. A pickup truck or two with a plow on it won’t do it. Be sure you’re looking at experienced snow removal teams only.

3. Getting Started

Every opportunity the weather has to make business difficult it will. It’s important to get started right away and if you haven’t mid way through winter, it’s not too late to choose a team now.

Winter Storm Advisory/Warnings Have Begun

A bit further upstate has already had their first major storm. With over 10 inches of wet, heavy, and dangerous snow falling in some towns and counties, it’s a clear sign that winter is already here. Temperatures hovered around 28-32F causing for some nasty and slushy heavy snow to fall that snapped tree branches and felled power lines. This is a statement to the unprepared for this years winter, even though Thanksgiving hasn’t even come yet, its important to get moving on your snow removal and ice management plan.

Snow Removal Contractor Rockland County NY

Things you can do right away to start preparing for this years winter include:

1. Check the quality of your shovels/snow blower maintenance
2. Buy salt for your front porch and walkways
3. Find out the routes for local snow plowing trucks/companies
4. Plan your home and commercial snow removal contractor

This may seem like a rather self explanatory list, but number 4 is the one that many business owners overlook until it is too late. Think about it, if we experienced the 10 inches of heavy snow on a school day, in the middle of the work week, as they’re seeing a bit further upstate, your business would literally be shut down. Not only for the days of the storm, but for the days after when the snow stops falling and people get out and about. Planning your home and commercial snow management is important from the onset of autumn let alone waiting for major storms to arrive.

There are loads of reasons to get this small list done early, and if we’re considering home snow removal, consider getting out there before the sun rises to clear your driveway, just to get sweaty and have to run back to work. You really shouldn’t run a snow blower at 4am in the morning, just like you shouldn’t mow your lawn at 4am in the morning, the neighbors will not take to it kindly. So be sure you’ve considered this. Many of us travel to work and getting out there hours early to shovel or snow blow may not be on your bucket list.
