Business Cultivating the best in yards, pools by Joan Westlake


Jim Humphreys is enhancing the exteriors of residential and commercial properties in the Southeast Valley, one neighbor at a time. A resident of the Chandler area, his company, Trimmers & Skimmers, provides complete outdoor maintenance from landscapes to pools for homes and commercial buildings. “We provide an overall program of landscape management,” says Humphreys. “We aren’t a blow- and-mow service that shows up and just runs equipment. We do all that needs to be done, when it should be.”

Summer in Arizona is when lawn and pool care is the most intense. Watering, mowing, raking, fertilizing, balancing chemicals and cleaning up after monsoons requires carefully scheduled maintenance as well as storm clean ups. Expert planning means healthy and beautiful exterior spaces. Humphreys points out that he works with the property owner to create a competitively priced plan to keep yards and pools looking their best. Trimmers & Skimmers expertise encompasses traditional and desert landscaping. Basic landscape maintenance services include mowing, trimming, edging, blowing, shrubs, trash pickup, raking, weed spraying, tree trimming, sprinkler repair and fertilizer.


Weekly pool services include all chemicals, basket emptying, brushing the entire pool, surface skimming and equipment inspection.


In addition to routine services, Humphreys says his firm is available for an added fee to put in seasonal color, seed for winter lawns, replace five gallon trees, thin and crown trees, repair sprinkler systems, clean up, remove junk and do storm damage renovations. For current clients, a variety of services have been performed including installations and an occasional fire pit construction. Trimmers and Skimmers is located at 3190 S. Gilbert Rd., Suite 5 in Chandler. For information and quotes, call 480-234-6078 or go to www.trimmersandskimmers.com.
