A beautifully kept lawn is a great asset for any property, but the work involved is often more than a busy professional or family can find time to keep up with. Pests and bugs can live within your lawn, and unless you employ a professional lawn care service, the ground can become a breeding ground for bugs to multiply and eventually, enter your home.
What Is a Lawn Care Service?
When your grass is too short, the roots struggle to live, and your lawn will look unkempt and dreadful. When the grass is too long, fire ants and chinch bugs will set camp and treat it as their home.
Lawn care service is about managing the length of the grass, fertilizing it regularly, controlling the weeds and adding an insecticide to prevent insects living and breeding out of sight.
Not everyone is a lawn care specialist. Many choose to hire an individual with a lawnmower and hope they will keep the lawn trimmed regularly to the correct length. In the differing weather zones, your lawn needs treated differently during the various seasons of the year.
On some occasions, irrigation is vital to bring either water to the lawn or drain it away effectively. An expert lawn care service will help organize water from renewable water areas so you do not have to purchase expensive water treated for drinking or direct from your faucet.
Keeping the Bugs at Bay
One of the first lines of defense for your property is to keep a barrier around your home and yard to encourage bugs to live elsewhere. By not caring for your lawn correctly, you are encouraging bugs into areas very close to your home.
By treating your lawn nutritionally and reducing the weeds and pests that enjoy an incorrectly kept lawn, the health of your landscape is dramatically improved.
