"We have been using Contour Landscaping for several years and find the service and skill to be the best. Ed treats our lawn like it was his and is always finding ways to improve it. Even something basic like lawn mowing is treated with innovation. One week the yard is mowed in a horizontal and vertical pattern. The next week it is mowed on a diagonal. We constantly receive comments about how great our yard looks. And it does, thanks to Contour and the great team of landscaping experts."

"Have been working with Ryan at Contour Landscaping for a couple of years now and he is awesome! He came highly recommended by my most discerning and diligent friend/neighbor and she wasn't wrong about him. He's incredibly knowledgable and has worked through multiple landscaping projects with me, patiently helping me make decisions along the way (and I can be quite indecisive). The results have all been fantastic (planting of various trees and shrubs, reseeding, 120 ft of reclaimed railroad ties as landscape edging, various cleanups) and we are so lucky to have found Ryan and Contour! Highly recommend. A++"​

"I am the Facilities manager for my company. We started using Contour starting last year and are very happy with their services. These guys take their job seriously and are very on the ball. There was great communication and clarity of what was expected to take care of the property before they even started. Couldn't be more happy with our snow removal."

Dormant Pruning Services

Dormant pruning differs from in-season pruning and trimming of shrubs. Dormant pruning allows visibility of the inner structure of the plant enabling proper cuts to be made to improve form and shape. It improves the plant health through increased air circulation, reducing crossing and rubbing branches, and removal of dead or diseased branches. It also allows for size reduction when desired, as well as rejuvenation measures by removal of one third of the larger interior branching.

Deciduous plants typically respond very well to dormant pruning and will produce a flush of new growth in the spring.
