For our regular Myrtle Beach residential and commercial customers, we also provide a wide variety of other landscaping services:
Lawn Care Services
All plants require certain chemical elements for proper growth and appearance. Of these nutrients at least 16 are known to be essential elements. If limited nutrients are available in the soil, lawn growth and quality may be limited. However, essential elements can be added to the soil through fertilizer applications.
Shrub & Tree Services
Trees and shrubs are living investments that grow in value with each passing year. When properly selected and planted, trees and shrubs can be expected to thrive with the right care, which may include watering, fertilizing and pruning. Just as certain established drought-tolerant plants may not require water during dry spells, mature trees and shrubs growing in favorable soil conditions may require little or no fertilizer.
All pruning will be done to preserve the natural growth of the shrubs and trees in accord with the normal characteristics for each species. Shrubs such as Pampass grass and Border grass will be cut back in late winter, accompanied by the removal of decayed matter. Non-flowering Evergreens will require two prunings a year. Shrubs such as Oleander and Eleagnus will be pruned as needed for containment purposes. Palm fronds will be cut off when brown or yellowing occurs.
Mulching is one of the most important ways to maintain healthy landscape plants. A mulch is any material applied to the soil surface for protection or improvement of the area covered. Mulching is really nature’s idea. Nature produces large quantities of mulch all the time with fallen leaves, needles, twigs, pieces of bark, spent flower blossoms, fallen fruit and other organic material.

Seasonal Color Services
Pansies, snap-dragons and cabbages in the fall. petunias, begonias, pentas, etc in the spring
Core Aeration Services
Homeowners often overlook problems associated with soil compaction. Insects, diseases, nematodes, improper watering and a lack of fertilizer are often blamed for a lawns decline when the real culprit is compaction. The problem starts when the top 4 inches of the soil become compressed, impeding the movement of air, water and nutrients to the grass roots. This stresses the grass plants, making them less able to compete with weeds and slow to recuperate from injury. In time a compacted lawn needs renovation.
Fire Ant Control
Fire ants are a problem because their sting can cause medical problems, they harm wildlife, and interfere with outdoor activities. The mounds are unsightly and cause problems with land use.
Mole Cricket Control
Successful mole cricket management requires patience and regular monitoring of the situation. It is not a one-time, one-insecticide application. Control is dependent upon an annual, well-timed plan. Timing of controls and cultural practices are as important as the choice of insecticides.
Chinch Bug Control
Chinch bugs are a major problem, mainly with St. Augustine lawns from July through mid September.
Flea & Tick Control
For homeowners with outdoor pets, Beach Landscaping can take care of unwanted fleas and ticks.
