Nature's Apprentice Landscaping’s Commercial Lawn Care
Maintaining the perfect lawn takes a lot of effort and a diverse skillset. Thankfully, Nature's Apprentice Landscaping is here to simplify the process. Here are ten lawn care tips you can follow to guarantee a beautiful property:
Perform Spring Cleaning and Lawn Repair
As the weather warms up, you might find your lawn looking a little worse for wear. It’s important to clear debris from your lawn and add extra grass seed to your grounds when looking patchy.
Use a Lawn Aerator to Promote Healthy Lawn Growth
When the soil in your lawn hardens over time, it becomes difficult for water and nutrients to reach your grass’ roots. Aerating your lawn in the spring reintroduces air pockets into your soil so your plants get the nutrients they need to flourish.
Invest in Regular Lawn Mowing Services
On average, you should mow your lawn once a week to promote healthy growth and avoid unsightly patches. Avoid cutting too much at once, which can damage your lawn.
Apply High-Quality Fertilizer to Help Your Turf Thrive
Lawn fertilization promotes grass health. A slow-release fertilizer can promote consistent growth throughout the season. As with most things, you need to maintain a careful balance. Adding too much fertilizer all at once can attract insects and lead to disease. Always use the right fertilizer for your specific plants.
Let Grass Clippings Decompose on Your Lawn
Don’t pick up grass clippings after the mowing is done. By letting them decompose naturally, you make sure the nutrients return to the soil to feed the living grass.
Maintain a Functional Irrigation System
One of the best ways to maintain your lawn is to make sure it gets enough water—especially in the summer. The easiest way to do so is with an automatic sprinkler system. Unlike watering with a hose, sprinkler systems provide even watering for seamless green grounds.
Clean Your Yard in the Fall
If you want your lawn to look good for the spring, make sure to pick up all the leaves in the fall. Fall is also a good time to prune your shrubs and hedges.
Mow Your Lawn a Final Time Before the First Frost of the Year
Timing is everything when it comes to the final lawn mowing service of the year. Perform your final lawn mowing service before the first frost arrives to avoid damaging or killing your grass.
Avoid Expensive Lawn Repairs by Staying off Your Lawn in the Winter
Reduce the amount of foot traffic your commercial lawn sees in the winter. Grass is more brittle when it’s dormant and can be easily damaged.
Hire a Professional Landscaping Company
