A properly maintained landscape is more attractive and welcoming than a messy landscape. As a homeowner, a real estate agent, business owner or a resident, it’s important to understand that your landscape says a lot about who you are and what you stand for. It’s like the first impression people get once they land on your property. If the landscape of your home or your business is not well taken care of and in proper condition, you won’t be respected and taken serious. A beautiful landscape increases the chances of property sales, which is why we make it our point of duty to channel all our expertise and creativity when offering any of our landscape maintaining services. Most people think landscape maintenance is just about trimming the flowers and mowing the grass but it’s more than that. Landscape maintenance includes fertilizing, seeding, harvesting, weeding, planting, trimming, shaping, snow removal and repairs.
Fertilizing is a maintenance procedure that involves adding composts or other organic fertilizers to the top of a soil as a way to improve soil texture, and reduce thatch accumulation on lawns. It best applied when the soil is wet to increase its efficiency and provision of nutrients to many plants. Fertilizers also increase the need to use more water due to the presence of nitrogen, a component of fertilizers that increases plant growth rate. If you’re living in areas with little access to clean water, it’s advisable to stay off fertilizers.
Weeds are majorly known for competing with plants for nutrients and water which makes them the most unwanted type of plant. They also eat up space and spread faster. They’re either carried by wind, or animals into gardens or landscapes. Consistent weeding is a sure way to keep out of your garden or land. However, if they are all over your landscape, it is better to require the help of professionals like us who would use the right tools to remove them, especially if they’re mature weeds. To avoid stress and disturbance, it’d be better to remove weeds before they mature to prevent them from seeding and reseeding.
A mowed lawn is aesthetically appealing and adds to the beauty of a landscape. It’s an efficient way of keeping pests at bay. One of the most important mowing tips is to always mow the grasses with sharp blades because dull blades will tear the grass instead of cutting which will cause more water usage for recovery. Another tip is that grass roots grow slower when you mow the grass to a very short height because the grasses will be more vulnerable to heat which might eventually make it wither and die.
Watering your lawn, shrubs, and flowers is an excellent idea that helps to keep them healthy and attractive. However, it’s best to install irrigation systems and rain/ weather sensors in order to conserve water and also ensure that your plants are not overwatered. One of the best method applied in reducing the amount of water used for outdoor purposes is building a landscape that doesn’t require excess watering, for example, xeriscaping.
