Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

What’s your work area?

We service areas from Boca Raton down to Fort Lauderdale.


 What is the best day to have my property maintained?

The best days to have your property maintained are Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursdays for homeowners (Monday for corporate clients). Why Wednesday? Well, except for approximately 6-8 weeks in the Spring when turf is at its peak growth, there is very little difference in cut appearance come the weekend. With 99% certainty, we will never have to show up on Saturday to provide service due to few days of rain earlier in the week.


 How often should I water?

Turf grass should be watered 3/4″ – 1″ per week. Shrubs and trees should receive deep watering 1-2 times per week. Annual and perennials should be watered 2-3 times per week. This is for established landscapes.

 How much water does my lawn need in the summer?

Approximately 1″ of water from your sprinkler, irrigation system or Mother Nature or a combination per week.


What size mowers do you use?

The size of the mower used is based on the size of each given area of lawn. A good landscape company will have many different size mowers with deck sizes from 21″ to 52″ or larger. The right machine is as important as the qualifications of its operators.


Why is mowing at the right height and alternating patterns of cut so important?

The right height will cause less damage to the blade of grass so the plant is under less stress. This in turn will allow for better vigor which in itself will help shade, fend off weeds and protect against insect damage.


If you design my landscape, how will I maintain and care for it?

Any designed or installed work AnR provides can be maintained or serviced by AnR. This includes full landscape planting, sod or seed, lawn irrigation or installed lighting systems.


What can I expect to spend landscaping my entire property?

Assuming your asking for all key components, hardscape, fencing, drainage, irrigation, lighting, plant material, etc., a realistic range is 10%-15% of your home’s value. This can be higher or lower based on site conditions, access, plant selection, etc.
