Some homeowners and business owners want comprehensive care for their lawns involving aeration, soil tests before care starts, seeding and grass seed plans based on soil tests, nutrients needs based on tests, landscaping and gardening and planting adding to lawn care, pest and weed controls, and of course mowing and trimming. lawns-gardens-landscaping.com
Proper lawn care is every week and some homeowners/business owners can only afford every two weeks… the every two weeks approach is risking a lower quality lawn due to taller grass clippings covering your lawn settling into the lawn choking lawn growth. The every week mow schedule is best and does not require a higher cost per week compared to a two week or longer schedule that will require higher cost per mow for proper lawn care. Another factor of a two week or longer schedule are tall grass trimmings that will cover the lawn risking a less quality lawn over the summer months, resulting in more costs to achieve a great looking lawn due to the lawn being choked over time… also burn out can happen from a lack of watering during hot weeks if a property owner lacks irrigation or time to manually water mornings and evenings. These factors are the pros and cons of every week ( best ) compared to every two weeks (risky but still effective ) and beyond a two week schedule…can be disastrous for a lawn over time. Over time the one week schedule costs less for those homeowners and clients having a great looking lawn… combined with a homeowners personal attention of watering the lawn at least three times a week in hot summer weeks.
Soils are the foundation for a healthy lawn; they are a living, dynamic, biologically active resource that provides nutrients, water, and oxygen to your lawn. Natural lawn care promotes the life and health of your soil. Several natural lawn care products add proteins that are beneficial to the soil microbes. Through a combination of specific products a natural lawn care program promotes an optimal relationship between plants and soil.
Homeowners and clients need to understand that regardless of the type of care a lawn receives, there is no such thing as a perfect lawn. Lawns maintained with natural products can become stronger and healthier. In essence, all education about organic lawn care stresses the integration of good cultural management practices. By going organic, you will rely more on lime, natural fertilizers, and other natural products than on synthetic fertilizers and pesticides to correct lawn problems. It does not mean we will never need synthetic products, but we will use smaller quantities of synthetics on your lawns-gardens-landscaping needs or none at all as some clients want complete organic.
