If you happen to own a large lawn, maintaining it on a regular basis is a must, therefore, you have two options to address this lawn maintenance problem – you either make time and effort to schedule for a lawn maintenance day in your working calendar or give way to financially outsourcing a lawn care professional to do the job for you, entrusting the burdensome task of what it takes to spruce up your large, neat lawn. Nowadays, many homeowners, especially young couples, are more inclined to hire a professional lawn care company, basically, because they find that professional lawn care companies are better adept in this business, mastering the art of lawn care, and, thus, young homeowners would rather entrust the maintenance job to these companies, selecting one whom they find has a comprehensive package to offer, ensuring that their lawn will be properly taken cared of.
As homeowner, even if you have entrusted your lawn into the professional hands of a lawn care service company, make time to discuss with them their comprehensive lawn care services, so that you can seriously weigh down the beneficial points that can be gained from contracting their services, which include the following: lawn fertilization, grub and pest control, disease management, lawn renovation and restoration, aeration, over-seeding and slit-seeding. Part of the comprehensive package of a professional lawn care company is to require their in-house arborist to conduct an assessment of the homeowner’s lawn property and make recommendations, based on his evaluation, as to what treatment options should be undertaken and the number of applications of these treatments to ensure that the health condition of the homeowner’s lawn is preserved.
What good arborist will suggest is for the lawn fertilization to be performed during the late summer to the fall season as this is the appropriate time for the grasses to have recovered from the extreme summer heat and disease and fertilizing them during fall will provide the much-needed carbohydrates to the parts of the grasses, such as the stems, rhizomes, and stolons, and, thus, can help resist from the approaching harsh coldness of the winter season and, at the same time, be able to use those nutrients to grow new grass shoots, in time, for the following spring. A professional arborist has a trained eye in identifying if your lawn has been infested by a certain disease and usually there is a specific treatment plan recommended to be used which involves a regimen of the following processes: fertilization, herbicides, lawn aeration, frequent mowing, watering schedules. The investment made for outsourcing a professional lawn service company is compensated with the benefits that can be derived from availing of their expertise, such as continuous service throughout the changing seasons, house calls for treatment and weed inspection are free, various treatment applications will ensure for a healthy lawn, and having professional technicians to do the maintenance job for your lawn.
