Loving Your Little Landscape

I have never been a natural gardener. For years, I struggled to keep basic houseplants alive, only to kill them at the first opportunity. It was difficult and stressful to buy a home with a yard, but I knew that I might be able to learn what I was doing wrong and correct the problem. To start off, I focused heavily on the lawn, and tried hard to keep it trimmed and well-maintained. Next, I cleaned up the flowerbeds. It was a lot of work, but I knew that it would pay off in the end. When I was done, my front yard was gorgeous, and guess what--it even stayed alive. This blog is all about loving your little landscape.

by Charlotte White

If you haven't hired a lawn care service yet, now's the time to do that. Once the weather warms up, your lawn will need a lot of attention.

Before you tackle lawn care by yourself this spring, read the list below. Here are four ways a lawn care service can improve your life and your lawn. 

Reduce Equipment Needs

If you do your own lawn care, you probably have a lot of equipment. Unfortunately, lawn care equipment can take up quite a bit of space. Not to mention all the maintenance your equipment needs. Without proper maintenance, your lawn care equipment won't function right. That's why you need to sign up for a lawn care service. Once you have a lawn care service, you can get rid of all the equipment. Your lawn care service will provide the equipment. That means you can clear up some storage space. And, you can save money on maintenance costs. 

Clear Up Your Weekends

If you're tired of spending your weekends doing yard work, it's time for a change. Your lawn needs a lot of care, especially during the spring and summer. If you're like most people, you'll spend at least one day a week on lawn care. That's time you could spend on other activities. That's why you need to hire a lawn care service. When you hire a lawn care service, they'll provide weekly care for your lawn. That includes mowing, edging, and aeration. They'll even adjust the sprinklers for you. 

Avoid Fertilizer Issues

If you've ever burned your lawn with too much fertilizer, you need a lawn care service. Getting the right fertilizer mixture isn't easy. Unfortunately, fertilizer mistakes can destroy your lawn. Too much fertilizer and you can burn the lawn. Not enough fertilizer and your lawn won't get enough nutrients. That's why you need to hire a lawn care service. They'll handle the fertilizer applications. That way, your lawn will get all the nutrients it needs. 

Catch Pest Problems

If you're not sure what's living in your lawn, hire a lawn care service right away. You could have worms, moths, and other insects devouring your lawn. By the time you get things under control, your lawn could be destroyed. You won't have that problem when you hire a lawn care service. They'll inspect your lawn for insect activity during every lawn care appointment. That way, treatment can start before you lose your lawn.
