Spring Spray: Springtime in Maine when nymph ticks are at their peak activity level. Their requirement for two blood meals to grow into adults puts people and pets at the highest risk of bite potential of the season.
Summer Spray: We are targeting adult ticks this time of year. Reducing the number of adult ticks is critical in reducing the overall breeding population going into the fall.
Fall Spray: The Fall spray is targeting adult ticks that are pregnant. Our spray dissolves tick eggs and kills on contact to help reduce the tick outbreak for the following spring.
Our tick and mosquito applications are done with a high pressured spray system that disturbs leaf litter, infiltrates crack and crevices in rock walls and wood piles, as well as hard to reach places under shrubs and tall grasses.
All contracts will have to be signed prior to spray applications per Maine State Law.

My name is Evan Frace and I am the owner of Greener Grounds Landscaping. I live in beautiful Owl's Head, Maine with my wife and our three young children. Greener Grounds Landscaping focuses on earth-friendly lawn and garden care. With 15 years of experience in the landscape industry in Maine, I have seen the hazards associated with traditional landscaping methods. Having children has made me more aware of the effect that each and every one of us has on the world that we are leaving for the next generation. Being environmentally aware is something that we have striven to ingrain in our children, and Greener Grounds is an extension of that way of thinking.
I am an accredited organic land care professional through the Northeast Organic Farmers Association. With the accreditation I can offer organic serviced based in organic standards set forth by NOFA for lawn and garden maintenance, pruning, installations, and consulting.

Our commercial grade electric mowers are clean, quiet and emissions free. We mulch the grass clippings back into the soil help maintain health and supply free fertilizer! By using electric mowers, string trimmers, blowers, and hedge trimmers our service drastically reduces noise pollution while providing a cleaning, emissions free environment for your family or business patrons. We also strive to use hand tool whenever feasible.
According to the EPA small gas engine motors are responsible for 5-10% of the emissions that are polluting our natural environment. There are 800 million gallons of gas used every year by the 56 million households that mow their lawn. Of that 800 million gallons, 17 million is spilled on the earth while trying to fill the gas tank, an amount equal to the oil spilled into Prince William Sound in 1989 by the Exxon Valdez! At Greener Grounds Landscaping it is all about taking care of the world that we live in.
Running a traditional gas powered string trimmer for 30 minutes is the equivalent of driving a full size truck from Alaska to Texas!
Our mowers run at half of the decibel level as conventional gas mowers. Homeowners can enjoy the beautiful Maine Summer without the overwhelming sound of lawn care equipment causing noise pollution. Doctor's offices, retirement homes, convenience stores, any place of business that has people coming in and out, or just trying to enjoy a peaceful environment, will benefit from the lack of noise our mowers produce. This is a huge benefit for your business, and a pleasant change for people that are home while we perform our service.
