Charlie Dittmar Property Maintenance is best known for landscaping on Mount Desert Island. Landscaping is the modification of an area of land to enhance its appearance. This includes the growth and maintenance of plants on the property. No task is too big or too small for us. We can help you make your yard look its best year-round.
Adding a tree or other plant to your property enhances its appearance and increases its value. We plant trees, shrubs, flowers, and other ornamental plants. We purchase these from local nurseries and hardware stores at a discounted price.
The cost starts at $100 plus the cost of the plant. These tasks improve the plant’s health and growth. We can also maintain the health of the plant with regular trimming and other maintenance.
If you have a healthy tree or other plant on your property you’d like transplanted instead of purchasing a new plant, we can do that. The cost varies depending on the size of the plant and includes equipment rental. If you’d prefer to remove the plant or tree from your property, we also offer tree removal services. Whether you choose to keep the plant, our licensed Maine arborist is pleased to help you.
Mulch is any material used to cover the soil to keep it moist and make the area more attractive. We can add mulch to any garden bed or other space. We use either bark mulch or wood or stone mulch, depending on your preference. Costs vary depending on the garden’s size but range between $300 – $600, including the mulch.
Please note that all work is done by the hour. Our winter and fall rate is $35 an hour, plus a charge for power equipment ranging from $7-40 per hour. Our spring and summer rate is an additional $9 per hour. Please contact us for an estimate on your specific project.
