Keeping up with your yard is hard work. There are a lot of moving parts in landscaping services — grass, shrubs, annuals, perennials, trees, paving, misters, sprinkler systems, drip systems…and the list goes on. It can take a lot of time and know-how that you may not have to keep your yard lush and green.
Maybe you’ve decided to hire a company to help you with your lawn or landscaping, but you aren’t sure what kind of company to call or what to ask for help with if this sounds like you then read on.
We’re going to make picking up that phone a whole lot easier by giving you the expert breakdown so when you make the call, you know exactly what you are talking about.
Regular Care and Maintenance
Regular care and maintenance is a must. No one wants to look at overgrown grass, plants, shrubs, and trees. Not only will a lawn or area full of weeds and shrubs ruin your home or business’ curb appeal, but it will reduce your property values and attract unwanted insects and outdoor pests.
When you take on the services of a professional crew on a scheduled basis, you won’t have to worry about keeping a beautiful, green landscape. Typical services that are offered by professional landscape companies like Complete Landsculpture are:
- Lawn mowing
- Border edging for sidewalks, walkways, and driveways
- Cleaning of hard surfaces like sidewalks, walkways, and driveways
- Spring yard clean up debris and dead winter growth
- Fall yard cleanup and preparation for winter months
Landscaping and Gardening Services
Landscaping companies offer a variety of landscape and garden renovations to enhance the beauty of your home or business property. Depending on the company, the sky could be the limit. Some basic services include:
- Repairing a damaged lawn
- Planting new shrubs and trees
- Creating a colorful flower garden
- Planting New Seed or Sod
- Over-seeding your existing lawn
- Seasonal Planting
- Garden Design
- Specialty Garden Design
- Holiday lighting and decorating
- Patio and pergola design and installation
- Watering systems
- Entryway enhancement
Trees can are tall, and working with them can be difficult and even dangerous. You may need to call an arborist for support, but many landscaping companies have arborists on their teams to make sure that they can cover all of your landscaping needs.
Pruning trees and shrubs regularly is recommended because overgrown trees and shrubs can invite diseases, insects, and pests to your landscape. Overgrowth creates a cozy, safe habitat for rodents, field mice, gophers, possums, and snakes which can create dangerous conditions for your home.
Overgrown trees and shrubs near your house can also invite the unwanted attention of burglars who use the overgrowth to hide from view.
Overgrown trees can also become dangerous when they get top-heavy and out of shape. They are much more likely to fall when uncared for, especially in storms and high winds.
Sometimes pruning may seem like a simple task but be aware that you can cause serious damage to your trees and shrubs if you do it incorrectly or at the wrong time of year.
As we mentioned before, pruning tall trees and shrubs can also be dangerous, so it’s best left to a landscape professional with proper pruning knowledge, skills, and the right equipment.
Pesky Little Pests
You may be surprised to learn that professional landscape maintenance companies also include proper pest control to keep your lawn and landscape healthy and pest free.
Some insects are your yard’s best friends, but some outdoor pests cause damage and can quickly destroy your property. If you want a green and healthy lawn year-round, pest control should be a part of your regular landscape maintenance plan.
Some companies offer year-round pest management programs. These are regularly scheduled visits that focus on safe, gentle pest control solutions. Property visits from a Pest Management specialist can include:
- An inspection of trees and shrubs
- Recommended treatments for pest control as needed
- Detailed reports that outline problems and treatments
Your landscaping company may also recommend specialty pest control treatments when needed like:
- Winter pest control treatments
- Plant root feedings
- Organic mosquito
- flea and tick control
- Deer repellent solutions
- Tree trunk injections to prevent diseases
Additional Services That Keep Your Lawn Healthy and Happy
As the seasons change, it’s important to take care of your lawn by aerating, mulching and fertilizing it. Lawn aeration, usually best performed in the spring, is a necessity for a lush lawn.
Small holes are punched in the soil, which allows nutrients, water, and oxygen to penetrate grassroots. This allows for deeper root growth and thicker, stronger grass, and reduces soil compaction, which prevents proper circulation of air, water, and nutrients in the soil.
There are many different types of mulch and fertilizer, and our lawn care specialist will know the landscaping services you need, when to apply them, and how to apply them for the best effect.
