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. If the homeowner finds that outsourcing for a lawn care service is a better option as it will relieve him of the burden of doing a regular lawn care maintenance, his first move is to find the right lawn care company that can offer a comprehensive service which includes being equipped with all necessary materials, equipment, and technical know-how.
In hiring for a professional lawn service company, one must be meticulous in discussing the kinds of services that the company normally offers, which may require an equivalent payment for each service, therefore, one should look for a comprehensive package that includes the following, depending on what’s best for your lawn: 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. While it may cost much for a homeowner to contract a professional lawn care company to take care for his lawn, but the benefits he can get out of this outsourcing option are the following: there is continuous service throughout the changing seasons, house calls for treatment and weed inspection are free, various treatment applications will ensure for a healthy lawn, company’s service technicians are professionals and licensed.
