Whether you are a new homeowner or a resident who is ready to step up their lawn game, yearly lawn care is for everyone. Each year there are regular services that will need to be completed. These are what we call essential services. There will be other landscaping projects that need to be completed that are irregular. Please consult a professional before taking on any landscaping projects. Here is a breakdown of the suggested services for a year to keep your lawn in top shape.
Regular mowing keeps your lawn healthy and continually growing back thicker and stronger. Leaving grass clippings on your lawn each week will allow the nutrients left on them to stay on the lawn.
In the Kansas City area we recommend 7 fertilizer treatments. Each treatment is different for the weather and what your lawn needs. The combination of all of them keeps your grass roots and lawn healthy all year.
Aeration is the process of removing cork sized holes from your lawn allowing new seed to create roots and old roots to breathe. Verticutting, slice seeding, or overseeding can also be used pending what your lawn is needing. Always ask a professional for guidance.
Leaves that are left on the lawn all winter will suffocate the grass. We recommend 2-3 leaf removals a year.
Starting the year by correcting a drainage issue is important. You can be having all the other services done and it will not matter if your lawn is having drainage issues. This can cause dead spots, seeds to wash away, and erosion. Start with fixing any drainage issues in your yearly lawn care.
Although snow removal does not have a lot to do with your lawn, it has more to do with your safety. Your full service lawn and landscaping company will most likely provide snow removal services. Save yourself time and stay safe by having snow removed for you.
Yearly lawn care is for every lawn. If you are unsure of the services you need, consult a professional. A professional local lawn care company will be able to come out and evaluate your yearly lawn care services so that you are getting the most out of your property.
