Wet Weather Takes Us Into Summer — Big Winners Announced! 

We are in the heart of the spring season and although it’s been a wet one so far, Clutch will continue to strive for excellence in maintaining and creating beautiful landscapes. We are ready for whatever Mother Nature throws our way. Weather experts are predicting a much cooler than normal summer this year, but hopefully it will be quite some time before the shovels come out again! 

We would like to take this opportunity to congratulate the $100 prize winners in our Clutch Customer Survey Raffle: 

• Antonio M. of Streetsboro
• Florence W. of Seven Hills
• Art G. of Parma 

Thank you to everyone who submitted surveys. 

We would also like to announce the promotion of Ryan Frank to Head Foreman. Ryan has been with the company for over 10 years and has been a major contributor to the success of our business. Ryan will work closely with all of our crews as well as customers to ensure continued quality service.  

Thanks again for your support and for allowing us to come through in the Clutch for you! 

Aaron Frank & Paul Wolanin, Owners


Special Note: Shrub Trimming 

If you haven’t already, it’s not too late to sign up for our Shrub Trimming Program! 

The Shrub Trimming Program consists of (2) services: early/mid-June & late-September/early-October. These are ideal times of the year to trim shrubs as the spring weather contributes to significant growth and it is also recommended to trim shrubs later in the year prior to the winter months.

Finally! Spring is Right Around the Corner!

We are beginning to see some light at the end of the tunnel as the spring season is just around the corner and the birds are beginning to make their way back North after a pretty intense winter here in Northeast Ohio.  

We would like to thank those that took advantage of our snowplow service during what has been one of harshest winters in recent memory. Here is some food for thought: The Ohio Department of Transportation (ODOT) is getting closer to breaking the record for salt usage in a single winter – one million tons! This has been a rare winter to say the least with 80% of the Great Lakes being covered with ice and all Northeast Ohio schools have had at least 6 snow days due to the frigid temperatures and heavy snowfall. Not to be the bearer of bad news, but experts are predicting the next 10 winters in our area to be relatively similar.  

As the hours of daylight are getting longer and landscapes are beginning to reappear from the snowfall, we wanted to remind you of how Clutch can be of service to you.   

Weather permitting, our agenda for the spring will be as follows:

• Late-March – Early-April: 1st application of Fertilizing program
• Mid-March – End of April: Spring Clean-ups & Mulching (mulch available all season)
• Mid-April: Begin weekly lawn maintenance

Your latest invoice should have included a return notice of your intent to continue your Clutch service(s) along with a listing of services you may wish to add. A Clutch representative will be in touch with you sometime in March to discuss this notice or answer any questions.

Thanks again for your support and for allowing us to come through in the Clutch for you!

Spring Clean-up Process:

Once the weather breaks in the spring, Clutch is ready to give your landscape a spring cleaning. The process includes:

1. Overall cleaning of flower beds and turf – removal of unwanted debris and old perennials.

2. Raking stone and salt debris deposited by city plows from tree lawns.

3. Raking snow mold from the lawn (most important) 

4. Mulching (optional) – The “icing on the cake!” – Once the above is completed, let Clutch give your flower beds a fresh look for the season with only the highest quality mulch.

Any questions, please call 440-884-4001 or e-mail
