When it comes to your home we know that street appeal can make a big difference in how you feel about your property, and how much it’s worth. And there is something about a lush green lawn that you can’t put a value on. And even if the size of your front yard is modest, that doesn’t mean that it can’t be gorgeous. Thought, care, and strategic landscaping can transform even the humblest of front yards into showstoppers.
Keep Your Lawn Lovely
To keep your law alive there are three things you have to do: mow it, water it and feed it. Mowing the lawn seems easy, right? You just start the lawn mower, push it all over the lawn and that’s it. True, but if you want a healthier, better looking lawn, there is a lot more to do.
First thing to remember is to mow often enough that you never remove 1/3 of the height of the grass. Apart from mowing safely, one of the most important aspects of mowing is to get the height of the cut right. If you have a free draining soil and watering equipment, you can get away with cutting the grass really short. In other cases making sure that lawn is the right height is very important. That can be achieved by simply raising the mower height. If you have areas of your lawn that are in the shade most of the time, you need to leave them higher that the other parts. The extra leaf allows your lawn to tolerate lower light level conditions. For cutting away light brush and tall grasses choking up your yard and garden, use a weed wacker.
There are times that you will need to drop the height of the mower much lower. Each spring is the perfect time to de-thatch your lawn, and your lawn mower is the perfect tool for the job. Drop the mower to the lowest setting and scalp away. Make sure you collect all the clippings, and after that fertilize you lawn with a slow release fertilizer. The result after two to three weeks will be a nice lush green turf.
Keep Your Trees Healthy
Trees can look amazing and define your landscape but without the proper care a tree can over time turn from beautiful asset into a costly and dangerous problem. For the proper tree care and the best results you should hire a professional tree service. Certified arborists are knowledgeable about the needs of trees, and trained to provide proper care so your trees and shrubbery preserve their beauty, structure and health. Pruning plays an important role in reducing risk of storm damage and danger of falling branches. Hiring a professional tree contractor will ensure that all the work is done properly, your trees remain healthy and your neighborhood safe. That includes all kinds of tree cutting, trimming or removal of diseased, broken, or dead branches.
Every tree can either be an asset to your landscape or a potential risk. Sometimes a tree just needs to be cut down, whether it’s old and diseased or it becomes a danger to your home. A professional tree company can handle the tree removal process safely and quickly and make sure not to endanger your property, home or family members.
A stump sticking out from the ground is rarely a pretty sight and it can also present an annoyance or even a safety hazard. Stump grinding is the perfect way to remove stumps that remain after the tree removal.
