Properties or buildings are an investment. Companies place their most valuable assets in them: their human resources. It is only natural businesses wanting to provide a beautiful, well-kept setting, not only for their workers but for visitors and customers.
Most people appreciate the advantages of having a well-groomed lawn. The internet is filled with DIY pages –from cooking to crafting, to home improvement. Many of them are useful and great! Nonetheless, lawn maintenance is one of the things you should leave in the hands of an expert. Why? Because it will save you time, money, headaches, and the results have no comparison.
Lawn maintenance requires a certain level of expertise; only the pros know what to do and when to do it. The type of vegetation, the season, and the weather conditions are just a few factors that determine the kind of care. Moreover, the conservation of your lawn has to be accurately scheduled. At Bluegrass –Landscape and Snow Management –you will find a friendly, highly-skilled staff ready to help you with your lawn needs. To give you an example, this is what a spring schedule would look like:
- Perennial pruning. This is the best time to use shears to cut back all dead growth to the ground. It is the perfect preparation for fresh spring growth.
- Spring Cleanup. All winter debris must be swept from the grounds. This prepares landscape for the growing season.
- Landscape bed and tree bed edging. Edging defines a safe area around tree trunks and flowers. By maintaining a clean edge, you protect your plants from mechanical damage –from mowers, for example. This type of damage is the number one cause for tree health problems
- Tree fertilization. Our full tree and shrub care program includes six applications during the growing season. The first one happens at this point. The first misconception is to think fertilizers are “food.” Plants produce their own food, but when the soil lacks adequate minerals, growth and photosynthesis can be affected. That’s when fertilizers come in handy.
- Pre-emergent fertilization. The first lawn care application includes a slow-release treatment with a pre-emergent herbicide. The goal is to keep weeds at bay. Bed pre-emergent. This avoids weed germination.
- Mulch application. Winter usually dries the soil. The purpose of mulching is nourishing it again, add moisture, suppress weeds, and overall make the garden look appealing.
- Mowing. Our state-of-the-art gear trims and blows for a neat, stunning final appearance. The tip of each blade contains hormones that restrain horizontal growth. When you mow your lawn, these tips are cut off, allowing the grass to grow thicker.
- Bed weed control. We perform hand weeding or use post-emergent herbicides on your property weekly or biweekly for season-long weed control in your beds, so they remain pristine.
- Prune ornamental grasses and deadhead perennials. We confirm ornamental grasses receive any pruning they need for proper growth, as well as deadhead perennials to ensure continued blooms.
