Snow & Ice Management Since 1991
Though snow is not in our name, it is the largest part of our game. Maine Turf & Greenery has been leading the local snow management market since 1991. Mother Nature writes the rules and Maine winters are tough. In an industry where perfection is often unachievable, we aim for it, every time. Setting the standard with innovative equipment, systems, staff development, and products; we implement a strategic snow management program for commercial campuses, store fronts, and condo associations.
Success is gained by open communication in summer and early fall to best understand the individual needs of each property, implement planning and equipment that best meets those needs, and to record data each storm that allows for the continued refinement of planning and resources. Properties change. Equipment evolves. This is an industry of change, and we are proud to be recognized by our peers as the company that is bold enough to lead.
Maine Turf & Greenery brought treated ice-melt to Maine with its subsidiary, Downeast Snow & Ice Management, providing environmentally friendly treated-salt for our customers. Over the years, innovative equipment has included back-drag plows, agricultural tractor snowblowers, electric/hydraulic spreaders, and most recently, with a fleet of compact front-end loaders outfitted with Sectional Snow pushers and HLA Snow Wings.

PROPER OPENING & CLOSING OF SEASONS
SPRING – After a long Maine winter, nothing is more anticipated than spring. A thorough Spring Clean-Up is an essential property service to remove any debris left behind from Fall due to early snow or unfallen leaves at that time. Sweeping and clearing of parking lots is needed to reduce sediment in storm water control basins. It is also time to provide fresh cut bed edges that will provide a crisp look while also limiting grass encroachment into the mulch.
FALL – A properly cleaned property before snow is the most important aspect of property management. Without Fall Clean-Up, significant damage can occur to lawns and drainage easements due to accumulated debris. Because one never knows Mother Nature’s schedule, we provide multiple visits each Fall to keep the property as clean as possible before snow fall. In the process, we utilize leading industry equipment to recycle the valuable nutrients and carbon from leaves and grass, back into the lawn, reducing expensive and undesirable disposal.”
BARK MULCH – Nothing makes a statement of a property like freshly mulched planting beds. Utilizing a Maine-made product, with a long lasting natural dark brown color, we apply our mulch by hand so that plants are not buried. No bark blower machines here. Few companies take the time to be this detailed, but it is this effort that makes the difference in aesthetics and plant health. Proper mulching provides moisture retention, micro-climate cooling, erosion control, and weed protection.”
TURF & GROUNDS CARE – Maine Turf & Greenery will make weekly scheduled visits to ensure proper turf mowing, managing cutting height for growth rate and moisture. Clearing any trash or fallen sticks along the way, the turf will be left with defining mowing lines. Crisp trimming of all edges and final blowing of all hardscape surfaces freshens the property each visit.
Weeding and garden crews are scheduled according to property needs and budget. Turf health is enhanced with both industry standard fertility programs, along with more actively managed options that are tailored to meet specific environmental guidance.”
SHRUB AND SMALL TREE PRUNING – The pruning of ornamental shrubs and trees provides the immediate image that a property is professionally managed. Such pruning is species specific, with understanding of growth characteristics, plant health, flowering cycles, and desired formality level that the client and property demand. Because of this, pruning services are conducted year-round as-needed so to ensure your plants are protected and growth sustained.”
