7 Ways to Go Green Now

1. Cash in on the barrel-head

Let us connect one or more barrels to your rain gutters and you can use your roof runoff to cut down on water use.  Some municipalities will even give you a rebate for your barrels.

2. Go native

Let us convert some of your high-maintenance lawn to a low-maintenance planting bed using native shrubs and perennials.  Native plants are often more drought resistant than exotic ornamentals and they also stand up better to deer!  Using natives also preserves the natural character of the Virginia landscape. 

3. Garden in the rain

We can design and install a rain garden to capture and filter roof and pavement runoff. Why let all that precious water go down the storm drain when it can recharge your watertable?

4. Try tree-conditioning

We can help you save on heating and cooling costs by siting and planting deciduous trees that shade the house in the summer, and evergreen trees that block cold winter winds.

5. Replace high-maintenance shrubs

Do you have overgrown foundation plants that require constant pruning and attention?  Let us replace them with a correctly sized shrub so you can save wear and tear on your electric clippers.

6. Take it slow

Our SloGreen program can cut down on lawn mowing and shrub trimming.  A few applications of growth inhibitor each year is all you need to keep plants under control.

7. Compost, compost, compost!

No landscape is complete without a compost area. But it does not need to be a mess. We can help you find a suitable location and build a compost bin that will be the envy of the neighborhood.

Bed Transformation!

Once again I am very pleased with the excellent work H&G did on my property.  They turned a section of my ugly front yard with invasive Bermuda grass into a beautiful and simple flower bed with mulch and many small bushes.  This striking transformation adds greatly to the house’s curb appeal.  I look forward to them coming back out this fall and replacing the rest of the front yard with sod and removing all the undesirable Bermuda grass.  Brian was easy and pleasant to work and plan with.  He always responded to my questions immediately.  Jon and his crew were likewise very nice, efficient, and perfectionists in planting my new yard.  Many thanks and accolades to H&G once again!

Drainage Help

I would like to let you know how happy we are with the service we received recently.
We had a drainage issue in our yard and did some research, learned your company was highly recommended and decided to see what your company could do.
From the first contact, we had a great experience as the lady that answered the phone was very nice. She put us in contact with Brian Kemp who we also liked from the start, and we made an appt for him to come and take a look. He was right on time, very thorough, and just a very nice fella who we both liked right away and had confidence in. We really liked how he gave us options and listened to what we wanted. We scheduled the work, it was done right on time, and it looks great! Brian was even nice enough to do a video walk through for us afterwards as we weren’t in town. Just great service from start to finish! Thank you Brian

We will definitely be back with more projects in the future.

Thank You

Just a short note to thank you for all the help you gave us with our garden this year. Jonathon again did a wonderful job doing the bed detailing this summer, as did the mulching crew in the spring. I don’t know the name of the woman who supervised the mulching crew, but I want to let you know how professional she was. In fact, the entire crew was pleasant to work with, especially to experience the care that they took with their work.

Thanks also for being so flexible with the changes we requested for our mowing schedule.

Always Helpful

Brian came out last week to try to assess a problem we are having in our yard.  He arrived on time, was extremely courteous and took a considerable amount of time analyzing our situation.  While he was unable to reach a solution, he did take the time to research and recommend another business that might be able to help us.  That kind of customer service will make us more likely to call on Hertzler & George if other issues arise.  Thanks, Brian!
