Did you know that one of the most important aspects of caring for your lawn is mowing the grass? Proper mowing techniques paired with lawn treatment will promote thick, green, lush grass that feels like a carpet under your feet. While we don’t offer lawn mowing services, we do offer some advice on how to make sure your lawn is mowed properly.
Here are some of the important things you should consider when mowing your lawn:
Maintaining a vibrant, healthy landscape increases your property value, keeps your neighbors happy, and gives you something beautiful to look at. Trees and shrubs are an important element of your landscape, so they need to be cared for and maintained on a regular basis along with the grass. In order to promote the health and vibrancy of all the elements of your landscape, it is important to incorporate tree and shrub care into your lawn program. Just like your grass, your trees and shrubs need proper fertilization to improve their health and longevity as well as protection from diseases, pests, and harsh weather conditions.
You can’t always tell that your plants and trees are unhealthy by looking at their foliage, so it is important to have them inspected by a qualified professional. Many times the trees and shrubs do not get all the nutrients they need to thrive from their environment. It is very effective to perform a soil test to determine its deficiencies, and then to add those elements the soil is lacking through fertilization.
Everyone wants a great lawn: lush, a vibrant green, and the envy of the neighborhood. An attractive lawn doesn’t come easily though - it takes a lot of effort, proper care, and maintenance. Not to mention, holistic lawn care extends beyond just watering regularly and raking leaves; you need to fertilize and aerate your lawn as well.
Aeration is the process of breaking up the soil by permeating it with a serious of small holes. This allows air, water, and nutrients to reach the roots of your grass. This is needed most when your lawn’s soil is compacted. This can happen from heavy use and play. It is also common if your home is newly constructed. These days construction companies will typically remove the topsoil (to sell later), and then continuously run over the ground with heavy construction equipment and vehicles, compacting your soil, making it dense and harder for nutrients to reach your lawn’s roots. Aeration is also beneficial if your soil feels dry or is rubbery and spongy. If this is the case for your soil, then it could be suffering from too much random debris such as mulch, sticks, stones, or other non-grass materials. When correctly done, aeration can help alleviate or even solve these problems.
