What type of work does your company do?

“We do landscape construction, building and designing gardens, walls, walkways, concrete patios, excavation, grading, lot expansions, right down to weekly mowings and snow removal,” said Ken Salsman, owner of Property Solutions, which has been serving Worcester County since 2001. “We lean more towards the construction part. We like to get our maintenance customers off of that work.

“Our specialty is excavation and solutions to water problems around properties. If you have water in your basement, we can fix that and make it esthetically pleasing afterwards. We repair stone walls, retaining walls, gravel driveways.”
How large is the company?

“It’s myself and two other guys, so we’re not a gigantic company. We like to have a one-on-one, close connection with the customer. You’re dealing with me from the estimate and proposal to the layout and design to the finished product.

“We need to pick and choose our projects. If it’s too big for us, we’ll say that. We won’t take on projects that we can’t handle. And we can only handle roughly 30 customers a year. We are a small company, but we do off er large-company services and large-scale work.”

What kind of work is done this time of year?

“Late September, early October is a good time to plant before it gets too cold. And it’s a good time to work on any problem grass areas so you can get them established before winter comes.

“In the early fall, most of the work we do is fixing gardens or grass areas that have been destroyed by the heat or drought. This year we’ll be fixing lawns that have died or been taken over by crabgrass because it’s been so hot. Crabgrass prevention is important this year so that it doesn’t continue to be as bad as it was and so you can stop it before it starts over in the spring.

“You can use granular fertilizers and splice seeding in the fall or rip up an overgrown and infested area for reseeding.”
