Landscaping Guide For Homeowners

Hello, my name is Justin Malone and on this blog you'll find a lot of useful information about landscaping. When I moved into my newly built home, I didn't even have any grass in my yard, so I had to start from scratch. Before I tackled the project of landscaping my property, I did a large amount of research first. I learned how to plant grass seed, and when the grass started to grow, I researched planting trees. As my yard started taking shape, I planted shrubs and made flower beds. My next landscape project was building a fish pond and I completed it with ease after doing the research. I'm writing this blog as a guide for others who want to do their own landscaping and I hope that it helps you learn how to create a beautiful yard.

Recommendations To Help You Select A Great Commercial Lawn Care Company

When you own a commercial property, there is more to keeping your business and its building successful with good tenants in the property, you also need to maintain the outside of the property and its landscaping. The lawn around your commercial property may be large or smaller, but it can make a big impression for your entire building. Here are some recommendations to look for as you select a professional and knowledgeable lawn care company for your commercial property.

Use Efficient and Quality Equipment

During the warmer months you lawns will need regular care, and the landscaping company you hire should have adequate knowledge and experience to handle your property and keep it looking sharp. When you hire a professional landscaper who has experience in the business and the right equipment, they will be able to perform their service easier and with better results.

Your landscape company should have equipment that they take care of with routine maintenance to sharpen their mower blades so your lawn is cut smoothly each time. Dull mower blades will actually shred the tops of the blades, leaving them brown and unattractive. And when your landscaper owns a good quality riding mower, they can cut your lawn more evenly and in less time so they have time to handle weeds and repair broken sprinkler lines in a more timely manner.

Provide a Healthy Lawn Service Schedule 

Mowing your lawn smoothly and with a sharp blade is only part of the process. Your landscaper should also arrange to mow your lawn in a regular schedule. Your commercial property needs to look maintained all week long and not just for part of the time, therefore your landscaper should arrange to mow more frequently when it is needed.

Instead of a set-in-concrete once weekly mowing, your landscape service can arrange to mow up to twice a week when your lawn is actively growing. This keeps your lawn trimmed and well-groomed for a professional image. They can also keep your lawn trimmed but at a longer length, which will keep your lawn healthier and it will require less watering in the hotter months.

Use the Right Mowing Patterns

Your lawn landscaping professional will also know that the direction they mow your lawn can have just as much of an impact as its watering schedule and the timing. If they perform commercial lawn mowing each week in the same direction and pattern, after time the lawn blades will begin to grow in that direction. This will leave your lawn looking flat and matted. By alternating their mowing direction they can keep your lawn growing upward as it should.
