Whether you own or manage a commercial property and spend a small fortune on grounds maintenance, or you're an exhausted homeowner who seems to spend all of your spare time (and money) maintaining your lawn, you're probably wondering how in the world can you reduce the workload or the costs of keeping your property looking great.
Aside from pouring concrete over your property, here are 3 ways you can help to reduce the amount of work necessary to maintain your lawn or commercial property:
1. Eliminate Weeds
Different types of weeds thrive at different times, making it nearly impossible for your lawn's growth to ever slow down. Every time you mow your lawn, you are mowing weeds. An effective weed control program can save you hundreds of dollars just in reduced mowings, depending on the size of the lawn. By applying a pre-emergent in the Spring and post-emergent in the Fall, you can eliminate 4-6 mowings per season. An average homeowner mows their lawn 24 times per year, so by eliminating weeds, you can reduce that count by 20%.
