Reasons to Hire Lawn Service Providers
Lawn service providers have distinct services from the landscapers, although they may be found in the same company. Lawn services are numerous, and some are discussed below.
They offer lawn mowing services to improve the appearance of your yard. The service includes edging of hard surfaces, trimming long grass, and cleaning up the garbage after mowing. The grass is kept short, even and neat. This also eliminates pests and harmful animals like snakes from the grass because short and neat grass cannot harbor such animals. Trimmed grass absorbs more nutrients and water; hence, it becomes healthier in an evenly distributed pattern. The fallen shoots of grass after mowing will fertilize the soil for your lawn to have more fresh and green grass. They use electric mowers because they are much quieter than gas mowers or manual mowers because they are the quietest mowers.
They provide fertilization and weed control. Your lawn needs balanced fertilizers for the grass to grow healthy, massive, and evenly distributed. Weeds need to be removed, for they compete with the limited nutrients, water, and other essential resources that the grass needs. Excess weeds will deprive the grass with these resources; hence, the grass will have stunted growth or whether.
Hire lawn service providers for lawn clean up services. These services are on the highest demand in spring and fall seasons because they are the times that most trees shed leaves. The experts will remove the fallen leaves from the lawn, accumulated debris, and other little tasks that are necessary. When you neglect your lawn, the accumulated debris will attract pests, insects, and rodents that will find their way into the house.
There are lawn aeration services. Some small cores are removed from the yard to get rid of thatch and loosen up the soil to allow nutrients, air, and water to get deeper and more evenly distributed in the soil. Aerating the lawn reduces the amount of water that you will need to irrigate the lawn. The roots of the plants and the grass that is on the lawn will grow deeper, thicker, and hold more firmly into the ground for maximum strength so that in case the yard is flooded, grass and plants cannot be easily uprooted by the floods. Soil erosion on the yard is also minimized when roots of plants and soil are firmly holding onto the soil, which regulates water runoff.
Dethatching services include removal of thatch from the lawn to prevent fungus and pests from spreading in the yard because that will kill your plants, grass and cause infections to you and your pets. Thatch builds up more on some lawn grasses like bluegrass, creeping fescues, and Bermuda grass; hence, regular detaching is needed. Some grasses like tall fescue or perennial ryegrass form clumps; hence, they have no thatch problems. Over-fertilization and soils that have high PH content thatch more often. A thin layer of thatch maintains the appropriate soil temperature, moisture level, and protects the nutrients so that the soil can have enough of these resources. However, too much thatch blocks water and fertilizer from getting into the soil. It also traps the roots of the grass; hence, they are exposed to heat, drought, and stress. Water can also accumulate in the soil that is beneath the thatch and suffocate the grass because of insufficient oxygen circulation.
They offer tree pruning services. They remove broken and sucker branches that make the trees ugly and susceptible to infections. They also remove the breaking barks because they expose the trees to infections. Branches that are growing outwards excessively are cut to prevent them from falling on your property or people. They trim branches of trees that are near the telephone and electricity lines to prevent them from entangling with lines because that can cause a fire break out and other accidents.
