Why You Should Never Ignore Lawn Maintenance
Friday, March 23, 2018
Many people ignore lawn maintenance thinking that the grass and plants only need water and sun to grow. However, that is not the case. Your lawn requires regular care to receive the nutrients it needs to thrive.
Think about dangerous things that can damage your lawn like weed, insects, drought and high temperatures. You can only prevent these things from damaging your lawn when you regularly maintain your lawn. There are several reasons to care for your lawn and we’ll share with you a few of them.
1. Preventing Lawn Diseases
Every season there are some diseases such as dollar spot, brown patch, etc., that pose a serious threat to your lawn’s stability and health. Some lawn diseases become more prevalent with changes in the temperature while few diseases are common in particular areas. For example, brown patch thrives in hot weather while dollar spot prevails in moderate or cold weather. Regular maintenance of the lawn can help identify these problems and prevent them from ruining your lawn.
2. Curb Appeal of Your Home
For homebuyers, curb appeal is very important in choosing a place to live. A lush green, healthy, well-maintained lawn adds to the curb appeal of your home and makes an excellent first impression on the potential buyers. If you decide to sell your home, a beautiful green yard, trimmed bushes and lush turf will surely attract more buyers.
3. Healthy Grass
In summer, when your kids are on vocations, they’ll be playing in the home’s lawn with their friends. However, summer brings droughts and special pests to your lawn, and if you are not paying attention to lawn maintenance, your kids won’t have healthy grass to play on. Lawn maintenance will allow you to tackle the summer problems and keep your grass healthy and green.
4. Good Effects on the Environment
Are you aware that you possess a natural filtration system? Surprised? It’s your lawn. Your lawn acts as a natural air filter and keeps the air clean from dust and dirt. Carbon dioxide and greenhouse gases are a primary food for grass and trees. Both these harmful gases are dramatically reduced by lush greenery of your lawn. To keep the environment clean on your end, you must never ignore lawn maintenance as a healthy lawn means a healthy environment.
5. Controlling Weed and Pests
If you don’t pay attention to lawn maintenance, you are at risk of dangerous insects like fire ants that not only can invade and destroy your lawn, but also cause panic, injury and pain to you and your family members. Regular lawn maintenance can help detect these pests and harmful weed before they begin to cause problems.
Most people don’t have time to pay attention to lawn maintenance and that’s perfectly understandable. This is why we at H&T Services provide lawn maintenance services and can take care of your lawn without you having to worry about it.
