Landscaping Design and Maintenance

Planting

Planting

Planting new trees and shrubs on your property is a big decision. This can affect your curb appeal and property value. Also, knowing the correct plant to choose is just as important. Our experienced professionals will evaluate your desires, and ensure your selection of plants will meet your needs. Soil composition, water supply, sun light, location, all these will be considered when choosing new plantings and locations. The correct plantings can provide cover from wind and rain, offer a boarder on a property, prevent soil erosion and even hide unwanted mechanicals such as cable boxes. We will prepare your soil and landscape to ensure your new plants will remain healthy for years to come.

Sod & Seed

Sod & Seed

We install the finest topsoil and farm grown sod available. We always supply the correct mixture of seed to ensure that your Somerset, Essex or Union county property receives what is best for your lawn.

Obtaining quality sod is extremely important because there are diseases that spread on sod if it has not been treated correctly. To make sure your sod stays strong we will provide materials that work as a pre-emergent for broadleaf weeds and insects that we will apply to the topsoil before we lay the sod down. Our customers always have green grass to look at once the job is done. It is very important to use the appropriate seed depending on whether the area is sunny or shady. This is why we evaluate your property to determine the correct blend of seed, to give our customers a green resilient lawn. Contact us for a free evaluation.

Drainage & Grading

Drainage & Grading

Solving drainage problems is essential for maintaining or creating an enduring landscape at your home. Too much water in landscaped areas can possibly result in plant diseases and even kill sensitive plants like valuable evergreens. Areas of turf that are too wet are prone to soil compaction and scarring from footprints and mowing equipment. Here at Caffrey Tree & Landscape we design a way to direct the water away from your house and or low-lying areas, to either the street or waterway close by. We will install a French drain or drywells to keep water away from your property. Contact our drainage & grading experts for a free evaluation. Based in Scotch Plains, NJ. we service all nearby towns including Basking Ridge, Short Hills, Summit, Chatham, and more!

Soil Evaluation

Soil Evaluation

Not all soils are the same. What grows well at a nursery may not grow well on your property. We can take a soil sample from your property and have it evaluated to determine deficiencies and compositions. Knowing what type of soil you have helps you to pick the correct plant and improves the chances of it acclimating to its new environment.
