5 Signs You Should Invest In Landscaping

5 Signs You Should Invest In Landscaping

When you look at your home and the surrounding yard, is landscaping the last thought that comes into your head?

Here are five signs that you need to consider a professional landscape design and lawn service, and fast!

I’m Sure There Was Grass Here, Once…..

Your garden has been to the school of hard knocks and graduated. The kids and the pets have had their way with what was once your lawn, and it shows. Endless games of touch football feet dragging from the swing, bones buried and dug up again by Rover – all these happy times have not led to a happy looking lawn.

If your lawn has seen much better days – time to call in a lawn care service to bring back its previous good looks.

Yours Is The Garden The Neighbors Talk About – But Not In A Good Way

If you find that your neighbors walk past your garden and avert their eyes, if they drop heavy hints about keeping up standards in the neighborhood, if, in fact, yours is the ugliest garden in the area – then you need professional landscaping help.

You Just Don’t Like To Spend Time Outside

Do your garden and lawn reproach you every time you look at them? Would you rather sit inside on the couch than outside on a lounger – even when the weather is great? If your lawn is an embarrassment to you, why not get help – it’s what lawn care professionals do!

Your Dad Tries To Fix Your Lawn

When your dad visits, does he head for the garage and get out the lawn mower. Does he give you advice on lawn fertilizer, weeding, edging, drainage, watering? How much longer are you going to put up with being shamed by your dad?

The Realtor Shakes Her Head And Sucks Air Through Her Teeth

If you’re thinking of selling your home, does the realtor give you a stern lecture about curb appeal, and how a beautiful lawn adds to the value of a home – and an ugly garden detracts?

If any of these apply to you, then it’s time to think about turning your embarrassing garden and lawn into a lovely asset. A landscaper can advise on how best to get the most out of your space – including creating play areas for rough and tumble, if your family is still young. They’ll advise on landscape design, on lawn care, and they can recommend a lawn service professional to take care of the needs of your grass areas on a regular basis.

So don’t let your lawn and garden let your home down! Call in the lawn experts today, and start enjoying your outdoor space again.

Why it’s Important to Help Your Lawn Recover

Why it’s Important to Help Your Lawn Recover

Droughts can cause a lot of damage to your beautiful lush green lawns, and this damage is often permanent. Even winters can cause the grass to become dormant. As the rainy season approaches a lot of the turf will recover, but if the damage is too severe, you may need to renovate your lawn completely. As a result, it’s important that you are proactive in taking measures to help your lawn recover.

How to help your lawn recover?

These simple steps are all that you need to do to keep your lawn healthy.

  • Remove patches of dead lawn: Remove dead or damaged patches, so that you can lose the damaged area and proceed with recovery measures.
  • Seeding: Reseeding will save you the trouble of having to renovate your lawn completely. It’s an inexpensive way to help your recover to its original lush green state.
  • Return to routine maintenance: Just like you keep your body in shape by regular exercise and diet, help your lawn recover by consistent watering, mowing, and aeration.
  • Remove the grass, sand and pebbles – These hinder the growth of the grasses. It’s a good idea to vacuum these up – stop only when you hear no stone being sucked up by the vacuum cleaner. This will help grasses grow more quickly and freely.
  • Mow the Grass – During winters, mow the grass short – this will ensure that your lawn has a better chance of surviving the harsh winter conditions.

When Should You start With Lawn Recovery

Ideally, waiting for the drought to be over, so that you can then start with recovery measures isn’t in the best interests of your lawn, because that puts it at the risk of permanent damage. Although some states do not allow for water being used for lawns in the drought season, if you can still irrigate your lawn, you can get it on the path to recovery. Feeding your lawn now will help you in the long run.

If you still wait for a long time, the lawn will use up all the nutrients, and the damage keeps getting worse and renovation becomes a huge task. Gardening can become a whole lot more fun, if you can take care of your lawn the right way.
