If you are a first time homeowner and you don't know how to care for a lawn, and you also don't have any equipment, there are some things you want to arrange as you are moving into the property. You don't want to have the only lawn that isn't maintained in your housing development, and you also may not want to go out and spend the money to purchase several different types of lawn tools. Here are some things you want to do, and professional services you want to schedule.
Have a lawn care service come to the property and give a lawn assessment. They will notify you if you have any of the following concerns:
- Crab grass
- Weeds or unwanted plants
- Pests throughout the yard
These are just a few of the things that the company looks for, and that you'll want to have treated if you want your lawn to be soft and green. They can treat the issues and then fertilize the property.
Trimming and Mulching
Once a year, you want to have all the bushes and trees around your property trimmed. This prevents them from looking bad, getting in the way of vehicles or other plants or house windows, and it helps the yard look maintained. You also want to have new mulch put down annually. If you're considering doing stone, the landscaping company can give you a selection of stones to choose from.
Regular Lawn Care Services
If you don't think you'll have time to mow your property and do all of the trimming and grass blowing every week, or several times a week when the rain is frequent, trusting a professional lawn care company can be the best alternative. They are going to make sure your yard always looks manicured, and you don't have to store the equipment or do any of the work.
Moving into your first home can be overwhelming and it comes with a lot of responsibilities. If you don't have time to mow the lawn or you don't want to go out and spend a lot of money on a lawnmower, then consult the professionals. They can do a consult to tell you what type of condition the property is in, what type of work needs to be done to get your grass and any of your plants healthy, and how often they would have to come back to maintain the yard.
