Obtaining a perfect lawn is possible, however, it requires the right lawn care and maintenance schedules throughout the year. Many property owners know that fertilizer and weed control programs are the first step to giving your lawn what it needs to thrive, but, is that enough?

To gain a lush, strong, emerald green lawn, you will also need to include a few other services throughout the year. Seasonal cleanups, a correct mowing schedule, core aeration, and overseeding are all crucial elements to having a healthy lawn all year long.

Schedule a spring cleanup service to prepare your lawn for the growing season.

After winter is officially over, there's nothing like a fresh cleanup to welcome in the growing season. Spring is the perfect time to contact a lawn maintenance company that will come in and tidy up your lawn. This service is not only crucial for the appearance of your property but it is also crucial for the health of your lawn. A spring cleanup gives your lawn a boost by removing smothering debris/weeds as well as a fresh mow that will combat lawn diseases and insect infestations that thrive in long, overgrown grass.

A spring cleanup service freshens up your lawn with the following services:

  • Debris cleanup
  • Landscape bed weeding
  • Edging
  • Mowing
  • Trimming and shaping
  • Re-mulching

Hire a professional company to take care of your lawn mowing service.

Mowing your lawn regularly in the warmer months will help your grass thrive and will give your property great curb appeal. However, keeping up with the task yourself along with all of the other things on your to-do list is sometimes a true struggle! Hiring a professional company for your mowing needs will allow you to spend your time how you want while also being able to confidently rely on neatly cut grass every single week!

A professional company like ours will know exactly how often to mow your lawn based on the type of grass that you have.

Aeration and overseeding will heal your lawn from summer stress.

In the fall season, your lawn is likely showing signs of stress from the extra activity throughout the summer. Increased foot traffic and machinery traffic like your lawnmower will easily compact your soil, prohibiting essential nutrients from reaching your roots. This results in weak, patchy grass. Aeration and overseeding are two essential annual lawn care services that will help heal your lawn from summer stress and prepare it for the upcoming winter season.

How do aeration and overseeding help your lawn?

  • Core Aeration - Using an aerator machine, a professional company like ours will pull out small bits of soil all across your lawn. This will loosen up your soil and allow water, sunlight, and essential nutrients to easily reach your roots.
  • Overseeding - This is the process of scattering new grass seed all over your lawn. Overseeding will fill in any patchy areas so that your lawn is lush, strong, and ready for the winter season.

Wrap up the year with a fall cleanup service.

Fall cleaning will gear your lawn up for a successful winter season. At this point of the year, your lawn should be in great shape if it has received all of the above services. The last thing on your annual checklist should be a fall cleanup service. Again, just like a spring cleanup, a fall cleanup helps both the appearance and the health of your lawn. Cleaning up debris such as large amounts of leaves will greatly decrease your lawn's chances of developing diseases throughout the winter season like snow mold.

A fall cleanup service will tidy up your lawn with the following services:

  • Debris cleanup
  • Landscape bed weeding
  • Edging
  • Trimming and shaping
