New Year, New Lawn: Reaching Your 2019 Lawn Care Goals
How to Ensure Your Lawn & Landscape is the Best in the Neighborhood This Year
If you’re like most people, the start of the new year represents a time for change, goal setting and opportunity. It’s important to reflect on the previous year and pinpoint areas of your life you would like to improve. For most people, this includes improvements to their health, fitness, career, finances and more. For some Southern IL homeowners, however, it is a vow to complete home projects that they have continued to put off. If you’ve been wanting to improve your lawn and landscape but haven’t taken the time to do so, now is the time to get started!
Make a Plan
Before you begin any project, it is always important to have a plan. If you’re looking to improve your curb appeal and create an outdoor sanctuary that you can enjoy, the first step is deciding what that looks like for you. Do you want to put in a stone pathway? New garden beds? A water feature? A fire pit? A new deck? Whatever your landscaping goals are, you should contact a reputable company and let them know what you are thinking. Once you agree on a plan you can start putting it into action.
Hire a Lawn Care Company
Once your landscaping is done, you must find a way to maintain it. Keeping your grass well fertilized, weed-free and protected from insects and pests is another job. These tasks can be extremely time consuming and require the proper equipment, products and knowledge to be done effectively. Some homeowners might opt for the “do it yourself” option, but if you aren’t comfortable doing so, you may want to consider partnering with Weed Man Lawn Care. Our results are guaranteed, so you can rest assured that your newly-renovated landscape is in good hands.
Educate Yourself on Cultural Practices
While a lawn care company can do a lot of the heavy lifting, as a homeowner you are responsible for ensuring your lawn is watered, mowed and well taken care of. Many homeowners don’t realize that these simple cultural practices have a huge impact on the health of their lawn. Ensure you set aside a few hours each week to properly care for your lawn. If you feel like this will be a challenge for you, you may want to consider hiring a company for your mowing and installing a timed irrigation system to ensure your lawn is remains well hydrated.
Act Quickly When Problems Arise
It’s evitable that problems will arise during the season. It’s important to keep an eye out for any unusual change and alert your lawn care company immediately. Lawn disease and insect infestation can both be devastating for a lawn. Acting quickly to resolve an unforeseen problem will reduce damage and ensure that your lawn can get back on track as quickly as possible.
Add the Finishing Touches
Your lawn is looking good! Now it’s time to add the finishing touches with a bit of your personal style. Consider decorating your patio, getting some new throw pillows, hanging some lanterns and making your yard the relaxing and welcoming space that you always dreamed of! There is no doubt that if you follow these steps, your yard will be the envy of the neighbourhood in 2019.
