Now is the time to make a decision regarding whether you will handle the demands of your property yourself, or whether you will hire professional lawn care and landscape business.
However, if you are a busy person who works long hours during the week, you probably do not want to spend your weekend keeping up with the maintenance of your lawn and landscape.
Instead, you should hire a lawn and landscape service to relieve you of that responsibility so that you may put your feet up and unwind on the weekends.
In addition, if you enjoy spending time with your friends and family outside throughout the summer, you will want to highlight the gorgeous lawn and landscaping that you have.
In order for you to feel proud to show off your property in LA this summer, your neighborhood lawn care business will use its knowledge and high-quality supplies to take it to the next level.
Here Are Ten Ideas That Will Take Your Lawn and Landscape in Baton Rouge to the Next Level in 2019
When you engage us at Baton Rouge Landscaping, you receive the most qualified personnel in the area when it comes to lawn care and landscaping. We have been in business for over 25 years, so we are familiar with the requirements of the soil, turf, and landscape in Rockland County, New York, and Bergen County, New Jersey.
When you hire our services, here are ten ways to make your Hudson Valley property stand out from the crowd this summer:
1. Mowing is a routine maintenance task that every homeowner is responsible for, so a weekly mowing service is highly recommended. However, if you hire a lawn service to do the mowing for you, you will receive a comprehensive service. To prevent ripping and tearing of the plants, for instance, the blades of your lawn mower need to be very sharp. At Baton Rouge Landscaping, we make it a daily practice to sharpen our blades. When you mow your lawn, you should cut it in opposing directions from time to time so that it has a manicured appearance and so that the health of your turf is preserved.
2. Pre-emergent and post-emergent weed controls: Crabgrass infestations in your lawn can be prevented by having Baton Rouge Landscaping apply pre-emergent weed control as soon as the soil reaches a temperature of between 50 and 55 degrees Fahrenheit and maintaining that temperature for a few days. The flowering of the forsythia bush has long been taken as a sign that the soil temperature is high enough for pre-emergent weed management to be effective.
When it comes to controlling post-emergent weeds, we have found that spot spraying is the most effective method. Post-emergent weeds are typically perennial or biennial weeds. Examples of post-emergent weeds include:
- Broadleaf and buckhorn plantains
- Common blue violet
- Common chickweed (this is the only annual weed on the list)
- Ground ivy
- White clover
3. Lawn fertilizer program: It is essential to fertilize your lawn on a regular basis from March through November, the growing season, in order to build up your turfgrass so that it can crowd out weeds, keep its green color, and vigor, and withstand the dry, hot summer weather.
4. Lawn care using organic methods: Over the course of the last ten years or so, the use of organic methods to care for lawns has become increasingly valuable. Creating a healthy, lively soil eco-system that has a good effect on the turfgrass that lives in it is the first step in the process of organically maintaining a lawn. When you use organic lawn care, you’ll see a change in the vibrancy, density, and overall health of your turf.
On the other hand, not everyone can benefit from organic lawn care. If you are looking for a solution that will give you instant results and a perfectly green lawn, organic is not the way to go.
Instead, you will need to be patient while using organic methods to care for your lawn, and you will also need to be tolerant of the presence of the odd weed in your grass. You need to be able to see the end goals of organics rather than the immediate outcomes in order to successfully care for your lawn using organic methods.
5. Yard cleanup: We’ll give your yard a once-over at least twice a year, in the spring and the fall of each year, and we’ll do it for free. Raking up leaves and collecting debris left over from winter storms, such as sticks, stones, and other items, are also components of a cleanup. In the spring, you should get your lawn ready for the coming season by fertilizing it, mowing it, and applying weed control products.
The process of putting the grass lawn to rest for the winter includes raking the leaves that have fallen and disposing of them as part of the fall clean-up of the yard. This may be repeated an unlimited number of times.
6. Lawn care that is consistent throughout the entire growth season The majority of lawn care businesses will want you to participate in a fertilization program that is consistent. And we’re the same as everyone else. At Baton Rouge Landscaping, we will collect samples of the soil and analyze them to determine the levels of pH as well as any nutritional deficits. After that, we come up with a fertilizer plan for your lawn that nourishes your soil and promotes the establishment of healthy turf.
7. Maintenance of plant health: In addition to your grass, the flowerbeds, decorative trees, and bushes on your property require routine maintenance. Our teams will empty out your beds twice a year, once in the spring and once in the fall. We get rid of the leaves and pull the weeds. In the fall, we will fertilize your lawn, mulch your flower beds, install seasonal plants, and divide any perennials you have in your garden.
8. The owner of Baton Rouge Landscaping, Joe Holland, is an accredited arborist who specializes in tree trimming and care. He ensures the trees’ well-being by conducting checks to look for signs of disease and insects. In addition to these services, Baton Rouge Landscaping also offers deep root fertilization, tree pruning, and tree installation. Baton Rouge Landscaping will prune trees by removing dead or diseased limbs, or they can remove the entire tree if necessary. The procedures of careful pruning that Baton Rouge Landscaping employs help your trees maintain their natural beauty and form.
9. Program of fertilization for the regions of your landscaping that are: All of your plants, including the trees, shrubs, and blooming plants, require fertilization. We offer a fertilization program that can cater to the specific requirements of the plants in your garden.
10. When it comes to mulching, we advise applying no more than three to four inches of the material around the plants in your landscaping. At Baton Rouge Landscaping, we take out the old mulch and put in new mulch from a more recent batch. In addition to contributing to the overall appearance of neatness, mulch provides a plethora of other important benefits, including the following:
- It maintains a consistent temperature in the soil.
- It prevents plants from experiencing root heaving during cycles of freezing and thawing because it helps the soil retain moisture for a longer period of time.
- As the mulch decomposes, it supplies the soil with nutrients.
