Owning a house and a spacious lawn can only mean two things, when it comes to the issue of lawn care, either you have the time to maintain or improve further your lawn or you have the financial resources to hire or outsource for a professional lawn care company to do the job of regular maintenance on your spacious lawn. Nowadays, many homeowners, especially young couples, are more inclined to hire a professional lawn care company, basically, because they find that professional lawn care companies are better adept in this business, mastering the art of lawn care, and, thus, young homeowners would rather entrust the maintenance job to these companies, selecting one whom they find has a comprehensive package to offer, ensuring that their lawn will be properly taken cared of.
In hiring for a professional lawn service company, one must be meticulous in discussing the kinds of services that the company normally offers, which may require an equivalent payment for each service, therefore, one should look for a comprehensive package that includes the following, depending on what’s best for your lawn: lawn fertilization, grub and pest control, disease management, lawn renovation and restoration, aeration, over-seeding and slit-seeding. Before any service contract can be drawn out and agreed upon by the parties concerned, a good and professional lawn care company will usually require their licensed arborist to assess the homeowner’s lawn property and determine the treatment options which can be customized according to the number of applications necessary to maintain the health condition of the homeowner’s lawn.
Know that when it comes to lawn fertilization, the ripe season to do this is during the late summer and fall since at this time the grasses have recovered from the summer heat causing the lawn to experience drought and disease, such that if the lawn has been properly fertilized during these seasons, the grasses can begin to store up carbohydrate nutrients in their stems, rhizomes, and stolons, to help the grasses resist the winter cold temperatures and disease, as well as serving as energy for the roots to grow the following spring. As lawn diseases can be difficult to diagnose, only an expert arborist, through experience, can spot a particular disease and suggest a treatment plan following a combination of the following: fertilization, herbicides, lawn aeration, frequent mowing, watering schedules. The investment made for outsourcing a professional lawn service company is compensated with the benefits that can be derived from availing of their expertise, such as continuous service throughout the changing seasons, house calls for treatment and weed inspection are free, various treatment applications will ensure for a healthy lawn, and having professional technicians to do the maintenance job for your lawn.
