Lawncare and Landscaping
Lawn Fertilization and Pest Control
Tony’s Pest Service takes care of fertilization, insecticide, and weed control. Upon request to the Property Manager, Tony’s will spray for fire ants on private property. They do not cover fleas, ticks, grubs, nematodes, woody weeds, wild Bermuda or carpet grass, and fungus. In addition, they do not do interior pest control. Here is the treatment schedule:
Lawns: Six (6) liquid weed/fertilizer control services (every other month) and two (2) granular fertilizer services (Spring and Fall)
Shrubs: Four (4) liquid pest control services (Quarterly)
Palm Trees: Two (2) root drenching services (Spring and Fall). Note: Excludes certain types of palms, e.g., cabbage palms
Each home is visited twelve (12) times annually because some treatments are combined.
Lawn and Landscaping Maintenance by M&M
M&M mows, edges, trims hedges, sprays for weeds (in planting beds and driveways), and does the irrigation maintenance and lawn sprinkler adjustments for the community. They do not trim hedges or palm trees that are over 12 feet in height, as part of the HOA contract. Any additional work is at the owner’s expense.
Please note the following:
Irrigation schedule is subject to change with inclement weather.
Times represent start time for zone.
M&M maintains the planting beds that were originally established when the home was built. Any additional planting beds are to be maintained by the homeowner.
Homeowners are advised to maintain mulch or HOA-approved stone in planting beds visible from the street or a neighbor. M&M will mulch plant beds and charge accordingly. Helpful Tip: Stones can be used instead of mulch. Check with the HOA Office before putting down stones and read Stone Guideline.
Looking to add plantings to your existing landscape? Consider Native Plants. Native plants create habitat necessary for wildlife and sustaining biodiversity. In addition, native plant communities create resilient landscapes by buffering the impacts of extreme weather events such as severe flooding and prolonged drought.
Jensen Beach Golf & Country Club Architectural Control Committee Guidelines require a minimum of 50% of proposed tree and plant species to be native. The following native plants are recommended based upon their suitability to the area.
Red Maple (Acer Rubrum} American Holly (Ilex opaca}
Sweet Gum (Liquidarnbar styraciflua) Sweet Bay (Magnolia virginiana)
Red Bay (persea borbonia} Southern Magnolia (Magnolia grandiflora)
Sycamore (Plantanus occidentalis} Slash Pine (Pinus elliottii}
Live Oak (Quercus virginiana} Laurel Oak (Quercus laurifolia}
