3 Great Services That A Lawn Care Service Can Provide


When you think of a lawn care service, you likely think of paying someone to mow your grass. However, a lawn care service actually does much more than that for your landscaping. It is these additional services that often make hiring a lawn care service worth it as they do extra things to make sure your landscaping looks amazing. Here are three great benefits that a lawn care service can perform for you. 

Blow Out Your Irrigation System

Before the winter comes, it is important that your irrigation system is properly prepared. As part of this preparation, you need to blow all of the water out of your irrigation line. If this doesn't happen, the water can freeze and expand in the pipe, causing it to break. This would result in you having to dig down to the pipe in order to replace it, thus ruining a lot of your current landscaping (and costing a good amount of money). When you hire a lawn care service, they will use a pressurized air machine and essentially blow all of the water out of the sprinklers until air is just coming out. At that point, they can shut down your system for the season, leaving you confident that no water is left in the line. 

Trim Your Trees And Bushes

If you have trees and bushes in your yard, these need care, too. They can often grow out of control if they aren't cut back. This not only makes them unsightly, but in the case of bushes, it can cause them to overtake some of the other plant life surrounding them. A lawn care service can cut your trees and bushes back on a regular basis, using their pruning sheers and vast knowledge on how to properly prune plants. If you were to attempt to prune your plants on your own, you might end up accidentally cutting off too much and harming the plant. 

Landscape Touch-Up

Throughout the year, your landscaping may need a little sprucing up. The best person to not only notice these touch-ups, but also to perform them for you, is a professional from your local lawn care service. They will put fresh landscape fabric down, pour new wood chips, plant fresh flowers and plants in the beds, and add siding around your grass to help form a more fluid shape, among many other services.

A lawn care service can help you out a great deal by blowing out your irrigation system before winter begins, trimming your trees and your bushes, and touching up any area of your landscaping that needs it throughout the year.

Understanding Landscaping Planning

About a year ago, I realized that part of the reason the plants in my yard kept dying was the fact that they were planted in the wrong places. I didn't pay much attention to which plants needed certain amounts of light, and it was costing them their lives. Several of the plants were really struggling to live, and it was really hard to see. I realized that if I ever wanted to make things right, I would need to create a landscaping plan that would work well for the natural landscape of my yard. This blog is all about understanding landscaping.
