About Lawn Care

What Is Lawn Care?Turf Grass In Utah

 

Chances are you’ve had some experience with lawn care in the past.

 

You might have been encouraged, against your will, to mow your parent’s lawn as a child, pull weeds, or trim the bushes.

 

All of those activities are lawn care, but they one thing you might have missed as a child is that lawn care is much more than mowing your lawn weekly or weeding the garden or flowerbed.

 

Lawn care is actually a complex process of preparing, cultivating, and protecting your lawn so that it looks beautiful no matter what season it is.

 

Some of the most important times for lawn care are in the fall and the beginning of winter.

 

In addition, lawn care includes things like lawn fertilization and aeration, and no matter how much time you spend on your lawn, chances are it won’t live up to its full potential without pest control.

 

Why Do You Need Lawn Care?

 

Lawn care, and especially professional lawn care like that offered by All Green Pest Control & Lawn Care, provides you with two benefits.

 

The first benefit is the free time you gain by contracting out your lawn care.

 

Unless you enjoy spending time caring for your lawn and find genuine pleasure in it, chances are it’s a drain on your time, especially if you’re truly committed to having a beautiful lawn.Fall Lawn Fertilization In Provo Utah

 

If you want to get your Saturdays back, hiring someone else to do your lawn care can do just that, and give you time to spend with your husband, wife, kids, or friends.

 

The second benefit you gain by contracting out your lawn care is a beautiful lawn, without all the effort of doing it yourself.

Like we said earlier, lawn care is so much more than just mowing your lawn, and you have to be committed to have a lawn your neighbors will be jealous of.

 

You need to fertilize, seed, spray, aerate, and water, at a minimum, to have the kind of lawn you see in magazines.

 

Learning how to accomplish all of that, and to do it effectively, is a significant time investment, and you’ll probably make several preventable mistakes along the way.

 

If you hire a professional, you can gain all the benefits of learning and doing by yourself, without all the effort.

Mowing

For optimal performance, please wait 48 hours after each service is complete before mowing.  This allows time for the fertilizer and weed control to be digested into your lawn so in other words, don’t vacuum up your money 🙂 Our recommended mow height is a minimum of 3 inches

Proper Watering

It has become far too apparent in the turf care industry that the number one problem plaguing us is water. While there isn’t a way for us to create rain, we can educate and be better educated for our customers on the best and most effective way to water. Each lawn is unique and requires differing amounts of water and frequency.  Depending on the soil type, altitude (on the bench or in the valley), slope (steeper slope causes greater runoff) and temperature (higher temperature causes greater evaporation), we are here to help you know what will work best for your unique lawn needs. Run sprinklers at cooler times of the day (early morning or late evening). For additional professional watering insight, click here

Aeration

Core aeration can have a huge impact on your overall lawn health and maintenance requirements. By reducing soil compaction, Core Aeration allows for

Improved air exchange between the soil and atmosphere.
Enhanced soil water uptake.
Improved fertilizer uptake and use.
Breaks up thatch layer. Excess lawn thatch or heavy organic debris buried under the grass surface can starve the roots from these essential elements
 

Power Raking

 

Power raking removes thatch, a tight mat of dead rhizomes, stems and roots, which builds up under the surface of a lawn. Some thatch is beneficial to lawns, but too much blocks water, air and nutrients from reaching the soil. If thatch gets thicker than 1/2 inch deep, the roots grow in the thatch instead of the soil. Power raking is more stressful to your lawn than aerating is, and is generally only done if your lawn is thinning out due to thick thatch
