Having a beautiful lawn in both the front and backyard is a goal for most homeowners. This can often seem like an impossible goal however. Many become discouraged because the lawn stays dry, dead or simply ragged and weedy no matter what lawn care practices they use.
The reality is that most homeowners simply do not know the lawn care solutions that professional lawn care companies use to keep lawns looking beautiful all year-round. For a homeowner, hiring a lawn care service can actually end up costing less than trying to do everything on their own.
To take a closer look at how professional services can offer low-cost lawn care solutions, let us take a closer look at the most common mistakes that homeowners make with their grass.
Too Much Water
While most homeowners are quick to recognize the issue of too little water on the lawn, over-watering a lawn can also have devastating results. Too much water can result in attracting insects, more specifically mosquitoes, and result in the washing away of fertilizer and nutrients the grass would need in order to thrive.
Over-watering can occur from incorrectly configured or set irrigation systems, or leaving sprinklers on for too long. Not only is this bad for the lawn, but it also costs a lot of money.
Too Many Chemicals
Chemicals in the form of fertilizers, as well as herbicides or pesticides, can be used on lawns in a safe way to boost the growth of it and prevent diseases and the destruction of it from insects. Using effective lawn care solutions, choosing the right chemicals, and using the right formulation at the correct time, is essential.
Incorrectly using chemicals or fertilizers is a waste of money and time. Additionally, it can create a runoff or contamination into waterways, gardens and other areas, resulting in significant environmental concerns.
Working with a professional lawn care service using effective and safe lawn care solutions will ensure your property has what it needs to keep your yard looking beautiful, healthy and saving you money.
