They will even run errands if necessary. They are truly in the service business.
My family has used them on several occasions with outstanding results.

Below are some fall landscaping suggestions from Unique Services. If you need some help with these chores, call them at 434-979-8596.
- Have your lawn aerated, reseeded, fertilized and limed
- Prepare flower and shrubbery beds. Don’t leave them uncovered – use mulch, straw, or peat moss to create a good winter blanket
- November is a good time to plant flower bulbs
- Clean your gutters before leaves start to fall to ensure that drains are functioning properly. At the same time, check your gutter nails to ensure tightness
- Don’t allow cracked or chipped paint to go unprotected over the winter.
- Replace any rotten wood along the sides of your home’s foundation before winter.
- Trim hedges if needed for the final time this year.
- Cut back any tree limbs that may be hanging over the gutters or over your home.
- Leaf removal is a must. Have them removed from the lawn and flowerbeds. They must be hauled away, but remember, a few leaves left make good compost. Too many create high amounts of acid on your lawn.
- Check exterior lighting
- Spray and weed areas with weed killer for the final time this year.
- Give your yard a neat appearance by having all debris removed.
- Prune any high-shooting stems from shrubbery for the final time this year.
- Change heating/cooling filters.
- Turn off garden faucets. Drain water from hoses after disconnecting from the spigot.
