Founded in 1990, Kaiser Maintenance has grown into a full-service landscape management company, offering weekly lawn and garden maintenance, lawn fertilization and integrated pest-management plant health care programs, including diagnosis and treatment of lawns, trees and shrubs.

The company offers complete tree care, including everything from pruning to removal. Customers can also benefit from services such as design, installation and renovation of landscapes, ponds and water gardens.

“Through continuing education, our team has earned a certificate in environmental horticulture, and we have also joined with Paul Smith’s College to offer a 10-week internship program to their landscape management students,” said owner Lawrence Kaiser.

The staff includes certified Cambridge paver installers, a state certified arborist, and Department of Environmental Conservation-authorized pesticide applicators and technicians.

Mr. Kaiser, certified as an arborist and pesticide applicator, serves as a mentor to other members of the team. He has been the driving force in the creative side to Kaiser Maintenance, taking on large scale and unique projects. The work includes all project phases, from conception to maintenance. He says one of the keys to the team’s success is its insightful, creative planning and preparedness and care taken in the implementation phase.

Ms. Feinberg holds a certificate in environmental horticulture, and although her main focus is overseeing daily administration, her background and field experience allow her to address any client’s questions.

Whether it’s landscape management programs or construction projects, the team is guided by the customer’s particular wishes, needs and interests, as well as the existing vegetation, topography, house architecture and the landscape’s character. The aim is to develop a harmonious concept.

From small, idyllic gardens to majestic grounds, Kaiser’s goal is to make the client’s plans come to life and dreams come true.
