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. Nowadays, many homeowners, especially young couples, are more inclined to hire a professional lawn care company, basically, because they find that professional lawn care companies are better adept in this business, mastering the art of lawn care, and, thus, young homeowners would rather entrust the maintenance job to these companies, selecting one whom they find has a comprehensive package to offer, ensuring that their lawn will be properly taken cared of.
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. Before any service contract can be drawn out and agreed upon by the parties concerned, a good and professional lawn care company will usually require their licensed arborist to assess the homeowner’s lawn property and determine the treatment options which can be customized according to the number of applications necessary to maintain the health condition of the homeowner’s lawn.
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. As lawn diseases can be difficult to diagnose, only an expert arborist, through experience, can spot a particular disease and suggest a treatment plan following a combination of the following: 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.
