Average Sized Lawns: Why You Should Hire A Professional Gardener | The Experienced GardenerIf you’re an average family with a normal sized home you might think that using a gardening service is overkill. People tend to think that professional gardening services are for wealthy people with huge mansions and fancy topiaries. In fact, many middle-class families use our services. For average sized homes, using a gardening service isn’t as much about the quantity of work there is to be done, but the quality. Many of the people who use our services on occasion are simply trying to make sure that their lawn and plants are taken care of in the best possible way. Think of it like taking a pet to the groomer. While giving your dog a bath is probably something you can handle on your own, once in awhile you still hire a professional to trim and deep clean their fur because they’re simply more equipped to take care of some aspects of the job.

In this blog we’ll outline a few of the benefits a middle class, average family can benefit from hiring a professional gardening service. A good lawn service will be able to help you...

...Keep Your Lawn Looking It’s Best

Mowing the lawn might not seem like a complicated task, and it’s not when it comes down to actually pushing a lawnmower. However, there are methods to mowing your lawn throughout the year that will help keep it bright and healthy. There’s a lot of information out there about lawn care, such as which fertilizers are best, what length is best for your lawn at which time of the year, and how to make sure your lawn’s roots are getting enough oxygen. Professional gardeners have tricks and knowledge that you might not have, or have the spare time to acquire, like how to block weeds from sunlight so that they grow slower, or how to drain standing water from your lawn.

...Get Rid Of Pests And Weeds

Something incredibly helpful that gardeners can provide is knowledge about pests. There are so many different pests out there, it can be difficult to learn about all of them, and how to fend them off. A professional gardening service will have experience with all different types of pests, and know how to get them away from your garden. Whether you’re dealing with insects, rodents, or even just an excess of weeds, we’ll be able to provide you with a solution for getting rid of them, as well as tips and tricks to prevent them from growing back.

...Look After Your Tree’s Health

If you have trees in your yard, you might not spend much time maintaining it. Trees are great because they can often be quite self-sufficient. However, there are diseases and pests that can destroy your trees if you’re not on the lookout for them. Your gardening service will be able to watch your trees and make sure they’re not showing any signs of disease. If they notice anything off, they can provide your tree with the treatment it needs to get back to where it should be. One way of doing this is by systemic tree injection, which is a method that can be complex and is best left to a professional.
