Everyone loves the beauty that comes with a well-maintained lawn. However, to add the aesthetic appeal, you must go beyond watering and mowing the lawn. Enhancing your dream home with a beautiful surrounding requires you to dedicate your time, energy, and resources to ensure you achieve a healthy lawn. Even though maintenance is associated with a particular cost, you cannot plant those beautiful flowers or grass and then leave them. Lawn maintenance is not only fundamental to you and your family but also to the community at large. The importance of lawn care includes and is not limited to;
Weeds and seeds elimination
Weeds naturally find it easy to multiply on a poorly maintained lawn. Upon reaching maturity, they put out thousands of more seeds that risk anchoring to your yard and spreading extensively even to the neighborhood. Within a short period, the seeds will germinate and overtake the turf causing the grass to face a mighty struggle to reconquer its lost territories. However, maintaining the lawn regularly will eliminate the entire battle and help eradicate weeds and their relentless seeds. Anytime you come across a weed, ensure you uproot it with its roots included.
Insects will always find a way to burrow in and eat the grass from the roots. However, if you practice regular pest control measures that fall under lawn care, you will be able to wipe out the tireless armies of pests. Correctly apply the recommended insecticides if you come across a bug on your lawn to prevent them from multiplying and turning into a disaster.
Raise property value
High chances are you will not live in your home forever. You will need either a bigger or a more upgraded home. The thought that crosses your mind immediately after you decide to relocate is selling the current home after acquiring a new one. Thanks to you for keeping up with lawn care and maintenance since that will be an added advantage. A perfectly manicured yard goes for a higher asking price than one that has a poorly maintained one or has none at all.
Lawn care and maintenance come along with watering, feeding, and topdressing. In most cases, residential lawns have a thin topsoil layer, and within a short time, the nutrients available will deplete, and your lawn will thin out, failing to flourish. Feeding your lawn twice a year will ensure the turf’s appetite is satisfied correctly to produce lovely blooms.
A tree or a flower bush adds more beauty to your yard. However, it would be best to consider pruning from time to time to eliminate the dead limbs and those infested by insects and diseases. Pruning also enhances the overall health and will save you the expenses of replacing the dead shrubs or flowers. In addition to that, healthy turf will help trap pollutants and generate fresh air hence improving air quality. A well-maintained lawn prevents soil erosion and is known to purify groundwater naturally. Moreover, relaxing in a well-maintained lawn has been associated with relieving stress and increasing energy after a long day at work.
