Annual weeds (meaning weeds that die every year) are able to produce many seeds in their lifetime, averaging around 25k per plant and topping out at a much larger 250k per plant (depending on the plant and season). This means that, if left unchecked without proper landscaping maintenance and care, weeds can quickly overcome your lawn. That is reason enough to invest in turf solutions for the health of your lawn, but, just in case, here are a few more reasons why landscaping services could be just the thing your home is missing.
As I stated in the beginning, lawn care services can help you with turf solutions, weed control, and fertilization for your lawn. Going beyond weed control, landscaping can help ensure that water – whether it be from rain or snow runoff – won’t pool in your yard or cause damage to the basement and foundation of your house. By making sure the landscape has proper drainage and runoff, landscaping can maximize the benefit of the natural land and send the water where it is needed.
Landscaping services are for more than simple lawn care and maintenance. Many also offer affordable pest control services, to help you clear your property of unwanted pests such as fleas and ticks, ants, and any pests that are encroaching on your home. Attempting to get rid of them yourself can be tedious, and dangerous, if you use dangerous materials and pesticides without the knowledge of proper applications. Professional landscapers not only know how to get rid of the press easily and permanently, they also know how to use quality pesticides safely to protect your family and pets.
A little known benefit of landscaping turf solutions is that it can increase the energy-efficiency of your property. By using the cooling effect of grass, and placing trees in key areas of your home, you can lower the air-conditioning needs in the summer, and can make your yard a pleasant, cool place to hang out.
This benefit may seem obvious, but it is worth mentioning. Landscaping can enhance the natural beauty of your home and yard, and landscaping professionals can help you maximize the natural resources of your property, and use the land, water, and landscape to the maximum benefit. In addition, it can allow for easy navigation through your yard, allowing you to make use of your whole property. Having outdoor living spaces on your property can improve the quality of live, and give you and your family the space you need to grow.
All of the above points lead to the final, added benefit of adding investment value to your home. Having a well-maintained lawn and property can be the quickest way to add value to your property. This is a value that will only increase over time, as the plants, flowers, and trees grow over the years, becoming more lush and fertile. Not only do you get to enjoy your beautiful property and home, but if, in the future, you decide to sell, you will have a much easier time of it than if you had neglected your property and landscape.
Landscaping is more than simple weed control. Lawn health, pest control, energy-efficiency, natural beauty, enhanced lifestyle, and adding value to your home and property are all benefits of proper landscape maintenance.
