A soft, green, healthy lawn is a wonderful addition to any North Texas yard. In addition to improving the look and potential value of your home, it also makes spending time outdoors more enjoyable. Your lawn is an extension of your home, an area for the whole family to play, appreciate, and make happy memories together.
For many of us, this precious patch of grass represents the American Dream.
In Texas, we are blessed with year-round warm weather, giving us more incentive than most to spend time outdoors. We are a state that takes pride in the high standard of our lawns, especially as we move into springtime. But our temperate climate also presents challenges, with dedicated maintenance needed to keep our lawns watered, trimmed, and free of invasive pests and weeds.
It isn’t surprising that each year more and more families in the Texas area are enlisting the help of professionals to keep their lawns looking fresh. Keeping reading to find out how you could benefit from full-service lawn care.
What is included in Full-Service Lawn Care?
When people think about lawn care they often assume that it begins and ends with mowing. While keeping your lawn healthy starts with mowing, there are lots of other equally important factors to consider. College Fund Landscaping takes pride in offering a comprehensive, full-service approach to lawn care, which not only helps your lawn to look good but also enhances its long term health.
Our full-service lawn care involves two main areas: weekly mowing and fertilization and weed control.
Weekly Mowing Program
- Mow lawns using commercial grade mowers.
- Trim around obstacles like mailboxes, fences, and trees.
- Edge concrete and paved areas with a specialist blade.
- Remove all debris from concrete and paved areas using a commercial blower.
Mowing has benefits that extend beyond aesthetics. Regular weekly mowing keeps your lawn strong and healthy, encourages even growth, and prevents pests from getting too comfy in your grass. When cut weekly, the healthiest blades of grass thrive and multiply, increasing the health and appearance of the yard. Properly maintained lawns tend to be less prone to weeds and more drought-resistant during summer months.
But wait, there’s more.
Fertilization and Weed Control Package
College Fund Landscaping’s fertilization and weed control package ensures your lawn is getting the nutrients it needs to thrive. We develop a custom program based on your lawn’s individual needs, selecting the correct fertilizer and quantity needed to maintain long term health.
Applications vary depending on the condition and type of grass you have. During fertilization, we can identify any problematic weeds, prevent their spread, and take corrective measures.
When grass gets the nutrients it needs to grow strong, it is less prone to disease and irregular growth. As your grass grows thicker it will develop a natural resistance to weed growth and pests, as well as a healthier root system to soak up water and even help prevent flooding.
What to look for in a lawn care company
To maximize the long-term health of your lawn, it is important to find a lawn care company that not only keeps your yard mowed weekly but also knows how to create a fertilization and weed control program to fit your individual needs.
Finding a landscaper that can do both of these things can be a challenge. Different skills are needed for each part of the process, and while operating a mower might not seem like a complex task, creating a well-rounded fertilization and weed control program that leaves nothing to chance requires expert knowledge and years of experience. As well as a license from the Texas Department of Agriculture.
Here are a few questions to ask when looking for a lawn care, fertilization, and weed control company:
- Do you hold a license from the Texas Department of Agriculture to use fertilizers and herbicides on my property?
- Are you insured in case of accidents?
- Do you have a legal, tax-paying workforce?
- Do you provide weekly lawn service to ensure we get the maximum benefit from your fertilization and lawn care program?
- Do I have to sign a contract? Can I cancel at any time?
- Do you provide free warranty treatments?
- Do you treat different types of grass differently or do you do a one size all approach?
A quality lawn care specialist will never take a “one size fits all” approach to your lawn. The fact is that this way of thinking won’t improve the health of your yard, and in the worst cases, can actually damage the long-term health of your grass. Look for a company that is committed to understanding your lawn, and that knows how to adapt its technique to suit those conditions.
At College Fund Landscaping we spend time getting to know your lawn and all of its quirks. We know where the weeds are most likely to pop up, where water collects, the lines of your property and which areas are vulnerable to weeds. Using this information we create a personalized care program that works with your grass rather than against it.
It can be a little frightening to give all the responsibility to one company, but our 20+ years of experience in the lawn care industry have taught us that consistency is the key to success. In fact, the more time we spend with your lawn, the better we understand how to care for it. Any issues come directly to us, so you won’t have to call multiple contractors to get it sorted.
When you choose a full-service company you know that your grass will be mowed at the proper height and at the right time after fertilizer is applied.
