Lawn Mowing & Maintenance for Your Landscape
Your landscape maintenance session typically includes 40-42 scheduled mows over the course of the year. Between April and October, we follow a weekly schedule. However, from November through March we follow a bi-weekly schedule.
The mowing and maintenance component of your landscape maintenance session consists of:
- lawn mowing
- string trimming
An experienced landscaper who knows the needs of the common types of grass in your area is your best bet for a thriving lawn. In the region that comprises Lakeland, Plant City, and Auburndale the most common types of grass are St. Augustine, Bahiagrass, Bermuda, and Zoysia.
Although some lawns may be one specific type of grass, others may be a combination of several. Hiring trained professionals, like Creative Edge Landscape & Lawn Care, LLC will ensure the grass is mowed and maintained in the way that it should.
Generally, lawns should be mowed using the one-third height rule. This means only one-third of the height of the grass blades are trimmed off during a single session.
We follow this tried and true method because it results in a healthier lawn that can absorb nutrients easier, resist lawn diseases and insect infestations, and naturally keep weeds at bay.
We mow on a consistent schedule to allow the grass to grow at a controlled rate. Additionally, our team mows in alternating patterns every week to avoid any flattening of the grass or wheel marks from the mower to develop. Additionally, this keeps the grass from leaning in one direction.
By string trimming, we get those hard to reach areas around the base of trees, tight corners, against fences, and other obstacles that our mowers can’t quite reach. String trimming enables our maintenance crew to reach every inch of your property. With a string trimmer involved, there is nowhere we can’t get at to make sure your lawn is uniform.
We edge around driveways, sidewalks, and similar hardscape features to give you a consistently smooth and crisp boundary to the lawn.
Blowing is the final step in the lawn mowing aspect of our landscaping maintenance service. We use commercial-strength blowers to remove any loose trimmings of grass from your hardscaping and blow them back onto the lawn. As a result, this leaves your property clean of clippings and introduces extra nourishment to your lawn.
As-Needed Trimming & Pruning for Your Landscape Ornamental Trees, bushes, & Plants
With the more basic tasks performed, your landscape maintenance service is completed with complementary trimming and pruning of bushes, ornamental trees, and plants. Our as-needed trimming and pruning services keep your plants both healthy and beautiful.
Pruning helps protect the health of the plant by getting rid of dead or diseased branches. As a result, this keeps the plant, ornamental tree, or hedge thriving and in good condition.
Trimming is done for aesthetic purposes. Because we trim areas of the landscape plant that may be growing wildly, the overall look is that of well-manicured landscape plants.
Combining trimming and pruning extends the life of your landscaping greenery. Also, the curb appeal of your property is maintained.
Bring Seasonal Color to Your Landscape as an Option
Annual plants and flowers bring life and color to your landscaping design. At Creative Edge Lawn & Landscape, LLC, we plant annual plants and flowers in customer landscape beds throughout different times of the year. This insures that your landscape beds are always reflective of the season.
We help customers select plants based on how they complement the existing landscaping as well as one another. There are many hardy annual flowers that are favorited in Central Florida; some of the annuals we suggest to our customers include:
When do common annual flowers thrive best in Central Florida?
Since Central Florida temperatures are more moderate than many other regions in the United States, we are able to plant both warm and cool season annuals for customers. Spring planting throughout the Lakeland, Auburndale, and Plant City region means planting warm season annuals, whereas cool season annuals are reserved for planting in the fall.
Annuals that thrive in the warm season include our customer favorites above, but also include popular selections such as Begonia, Pentas, Salvia, and Sunflowers.
Some cool season annuals that thrive in Central Florida include species such as Pansies, Petunias, Violas, and Sweet Alyssum.
Preparing for Planting
At Creative Edge, our team makes sure your planting beds are properly prepared prior to adding in your seasonal color. Your soil must be prepped before planting to ensure longevity of your annuals so that they bloom all season long. We want your plants to thrive!
Loosening the soil and having a hardy layer of mulch ready to go are key components to healthy, prospering annuals. We also ensure that enough space is in your landscape beds for your annual plants by meticulously planning out where each plant will be laid.
In addition to spacing, our experts take careful consideration of the type of annuals being planted and their requirements for blooming. For example, We put annuals together that require similar amounts of hydration and sunlight, as species can vary.
Landscape Bed Mulch Replenishment
Consistent mulching in your landscaping beds is essential for both aesthetic purposes and maintaining the beds themselves. In addition to providing that finishing touch your beds need, the significance of mulch is seen in its ability to benefit the plants in your beds. Mulch:
- Reduces the amount of water evaporation from the soil
- Prevents soil erosion, especially during extreme weather conditions that may be prevalent in the Central Florida region
- Acts as a temperature control keeping the plants cool in the summer and warm in the winter
- Helps to prevent weed growth
- Protects your plants from both freeze and heat damage during extreme temperatures
- Aids in weed removal when they do pop through, as they tend to have more shallow roots
Mulching: When To Lay It, What Colors Are Popular, & How Much To Install
In Central Florida and throughout Lakeland, Plant City, and Auburndale, we recommend mulch to be laid or replenished during Spring. More specifically, you should aim to have your mulch replenished around April.
The most common color for mulch in the area is red, but other popular colors of mulch include brown, dark brown, or black. As experienced professionals, we will suggest mulch that works with your blooms and not against their coloring.
Popular types of mulch in the Central Florida region include:
- dyed mulch
- pine straw
- pine bark
At Creative Edge, we can assist you in choosing mulch that is the best option for your space and budget.
