Founded : 1990
Founder : John Singer
Mission : Fortunately for John but unfortunately for us, John retired to a life of leisure with his family and naturally Matt purchased the company. Matt has many great and wonderful ideas to improve the business, but we never stray from the ideal that we are a family owned and operated company. We encourage a strong work ethic in all of our employees and have built a solid and well-founded business through hard work and dedication. Many of our employees have been with the company for about 5 years and a few have been with us for longer than that. All of our foremen are seasoned veterans and hard workers, therefore we feel confident in their ability to give great service. We strive to continually give excellent service to our customers, as is evidenced by their willingness to come back to us year after year. Many of our contracts have spanned over ten years and some nearly twenty. Being a family based operation means familiar faces and great customer rapport. We love our community and it shows.

Aeration involves perforating the soil with small holes to allow air, water and nutrients to penetrate the grass roots. This helps the roots grow deeply and produce a stronger, more vigorous lawn. This is absolutely necessary here in Montana as root systems creep higher and closer to the surface to receive water and nutrients during the winters.Why Aerate Your Lawn? The main reason for aerating is to alleviate soil compaction. Soil compaction is the compression of soil particles. Compaction reduces total pore space of a soil. More importantly it significantly reduces the amount of large pore space, restricting air and water movement into and through the soil.Spring Aeration:
As the grass emerges from the winter snow and strives to grow and flourish, the tough Montana soil does not have too much to offer the little grass roots in shelter and nutrients. However, an aeration gives your grass its best chance to become lush, green and thick.Fall Aeration: By the time fall rolls around, the perforations from your spring aeration have usually filled back in with grass seed and soil. A fall aeration gives your lawn its best chance to get oxygen, nutrients and water into the soil through the winter months.
Power raking is the process of cutting swathes into the dead material of lawns to remove dead grass so the soil can breathe and the grass can grow more efficiently. Power raking differs from de-thatching in extent. While de-thatching tears deeply into the soil, removing both dead layers and healthy root systems, power raking is a gentle process designed to tear out only the grass material at the surface of the soil.What Is Thatch? Thatch is a tightly interwoven layer of living and dead tissue existing between the green vegetation and soil surface. It is composed primarily of products from stems, leaf sheaths and roots that are fairly resistant to decay. Although a little thatch improves the wear tolerance of a lawn, excessive thatch harbors disease organisms and insects, making the lawn more susceptible to damage from disease and drought.Benefits of Power Raking:-Increases the effectiveness of fertilizers, watering and pest control.
-Promotes a thicker and healthier lawn.
-Allows for new grass growth
Lawn Maintenance for Spring and Fall
You can spend a considerable amount of time, energy, and financial resources turning your yard into a vision of beauty but if you expect your yard to continue to look great you will need to perform maintenance chores on a regular basis. During the coldest months of the year, lawn maintenance tasks may be minimal at best. After all, you certainly don’t need to mow your lawn if the grass is dormant and covered with snow and ice. However, as soon as the temperatures warm up and the snow melts away, the grass, bushes, and even weeds will begin to grow and your lawn maintenance chores will become a regular part of your life for many months. These chores can be time-consuming and burdensome and the fact is that when you find a great lawn service, you won’t have to worry about them at all. Fall and spring maintenance allows JHYS to diversify its services.

You may need your bushes trimmed monthly and you may need your trees trimmed annually. We also provide you with spring and fall clean up, edging, gutter debris removal, landscaping design services, irrigation system installation and other services that can help you to truly enjoy a beautiful yard with ease.

Tree and Shrub Trimming
Tree and Shrub Trimming
Pruning is the removal or reduction of certain plant parts that are not required, that are no longer effective, or that are of no use to the plant. It is done to supply additional energy for the development of flowers, fruits and limbs that remain on the plant. Pruning, which has several definitions, essentially involves removing plant parts to improve the health, landscape effect or value of the plant. Pruning, like any other skill, requires knowing what you are doing to achieve success. The old idea that anyone with a chain saw or a pruning saw can be a landscape pruner is far from the truth. More trees are killed or ruined each year from improper pruning than by pests. Proper pruning enhances the beauty of almost any landscape tree and shrub, while improper pruning can ruin or greatly reduce its landscape potential. By using improper pruning methods, healthy plants are often weakened or deformed.Tree Trimming: Pruning trees will help keep your yard or landscape healthier and have your trees looking the best they can. Tree trimming, or pruning, is more than just getting rid of dead limbs. Pruning helps the tree to grow new, healthy branches. Light pruning and the removal of dead wood can be done anytime, however it is almost always best to trim or prune a tree during its dormant season.Reasons to Trim or Prune a Tree:
Trees are generally trimmed for one of four purposes: aesthetics, safety, health and maintenance.
Aesthetics: Pruning a tree effectively helps to maintain its shape and appearance.
Safety: Dead or broken branches and limbs can fall off at any time, which is a serious safety hazard. If the branches of a tree obstruct the vision of drivers in your neighborhood, they should be trimmed away.
Health: It is sometimes possible to save an infected tree by strategically pruning away affected branches and limbs. Thinning the crown of a tree improves airflow, which can be very beneficial if branches are crossing or rubbing together.
Maintenance: Tree trimming is also done as a preventative measure to keep branches from damaging home and building structures or overhead lines.Fruit Tree Pruning: Fruit tree pruning covers a number of horticultural techniques that control growth, remove dead or diseased wood and stimulate the formation of flowers and fruit buds. The time of year and technique to pruning fruit trees can vary greatly from the time and technique of pruning non-fruit trees. Pruning techniques also vary between the different types of fruit trees.Shrub and Hedge Trimming: Pruning during dormancy is the most common practice. It results in a vigorous burst of new growth in the spring and should be used if that is the desired effect. It is usually best to wait until the coldest part of winter has passed.Renewal Pruning:
Renewal pruning consists of removing up to one third of the oldest, thickest stems or trunks, taking them right down to the ground. This will encourage the growth of new stems from the roots. Once there are no longer any thick, overgrown trunks left, standard pruning is applied as needed.Rejuvenation Pruning: Older shrubs often grow out of proportion with their surroundings, and may have large amounts of unproductive wood. Older shrubs receive rejuvenation pruning provided they still have sufficient vigor and are growing in a favorable location.Pruning Hedges: After the initial pruning at planting, hedges need to be pruned often. Once the hedge reaches the desired height, new growth needs to be pruned every 6 to 8 inches. Hedges may be pruned two to three times a year to keep them dense and attractive.
