Keeping West Newbury Green

Living in Coastal Massachusetts is great for so many reasons, but the one that we appreciate the most at Swazy & Alexander Landscaping, LLC. is the lush vegetation. We are fortunate enough to be home to some of the mightiest trees in the Northeast and have some of the thickest, greenest grass. While we know that many of our neighbors agree that this feature is a muse for the area, we also know that most home and business owners don’t have the time or energy it takes to maintain a perfect lawn. And, that’s where we come in!




Green Sphere LogoAt Swazy & Alexander, we do one thing — lawn care. Narrowing our focus has allowed us to help the residents and business owners of West Newbury and surrounding coastal Massachusetts area to have the best of both worlds — a luxury lawn and a free schedule. We are dedicated to keeping West Newbury green. And, while we do mean keeping the green grass growing and pruning away the dried and dead shrubs, we also mean by reducing our chemical footprint. In fact, we have created our own proprietary blend of organic turf and tree fertilizer — Green Sphere.

Was able to connect with Derek and team at Swazy & Alexander late this year and they were able to fit us in for a fall cleanup. They came yesterday and, even though it was pouring all day, were able to make my yard spotless in a matter of hours..

In the spring of 2017, we considered just removing our front lawn altogether since it was just a miserable looking mess. However, after a visit and quote from Swazy & Alexander I was convinced to give the lawn another try. They were confident that they could bring it back to life...

Thanks for all your hard work all season. The guys did a great job getting the final leaf pick up day before the storm!

One of the biggest barriers to growing a healthy lawn is pests. As much as you love your green grass and lush trees and shrubs, so do the bugs. However, insects carry disease and threaten to destroy the very lawn you’ve worked so hard to attain. That’s why at Swazy & Alexander Landscaping, LLC., we use a comprehensive integrated pest management program (IPM).

An effective pest control program should be focused on prevention, monitoring, and control, which helps prevent infestations and the use of widespread pesticides. At Swazy & Alexander Landscaping, LLC. we do this in a number of ways:

  • Water management
  • Preemptive weed control
  • Organic tick and mosquito control treatment
  • Gypsy and Winter moth control

The goal is to prevent the pests from emerging and control the population before it becomes a problem. However, the use of commercial pesticides causes big problems to the health of you, your family, the environment, and your lawn. Some insects are not unwanted and should be allowed to call your lawn home while others should be eliminated. Toxic chemical pesticides can pose health risks to the kids and pets who play on your lawn as well as contaminate the community’s water supply. At Swazy & Alexander Landscaping, LLC, we use organic tick and mosquito control products that are BeeSafe®



Each lawn is special, so our lawn care fertilization services are too! When you hire West Newbury’s professional lawn care team, you get customized fertilization treatments that are hand-mixed for your lawn and its unique needs. We begin with an assessment that includes a soil sample to test the pH and nutrient level of your soil so that we can create the perfect lawn care plan and fertilizer mix. Green Sphere is formulated to offer maximal vegetation growth and pest control, while reducing our chemical footprint on the environment — true green!

Our lawn fertilization services include:

  • Early Spring Fertilizer With Pre-Emergent Crabgrass Control
  • Early Spring Organic Lawn Care Application
  • Late Spring Organic Lawn Care Application
  • Early Summer Organic Lawn Care Application
  • Summer Slow Release Fertilizer
  • Dehydrated BeeSafe® Compost Application
