How Often Should I Schedule Lawn Care For My Business? | The Experienced GardenerA well-maintained exterior communicates a lot about your business to current and potential customers. It says that you care about how people perceive your business. For many potential customers, the outside of your office or building dictates their initial impression of your business. One way to make sure you keep the exterior of your business looking good is by hiring a professional lawn care company. You can set up a maintenance schedule with the lawn care company to insure that nothing gets neglected. The type of lawn care schedule you should set up depends on the time of year and the services you need.

Time of year

The time of year has a major impact on your lawn care schedule. Grass generally has a growing season and a dormant season that is impacted by the weather and the type of grass. Both of these factors will dictate how often and how long you need to have a lawn care company come out. If you have a type of grass that grows quickly you may need to have someone come and cut it once a week or every two weeks. The best way to determine the exact schedule you need to set up is by talking with a local lawn care professional that is familiar with the types of grass in your area.

There are other services offered by lawn care companies that are impacted by the time of year. In order to get optimum results you need to consider timing when you aerate the grass, fertilize the grass and other plants, and prune shrubs and trees.

Services you need

As mentioned above, a professional lawn care company can offer a wide range of services that include mowing, fertilizing, aerating, pruning, and weed control. These other types of services should be scheduled in a different way because they need to occur at various times throughout the year. For example, you do not need to aerate or fertilize your yard on a weekly basis. These tasks are done less frequently and have to be scheduled accordingly. The same is true for a service like pruning trees and bushes. It would not be good for the plants to be pruned too often or during the wrong time of year. Getting all of these services on the right type of schedule will have a positive impact on the health and aesthetic of your landscaping.

The best way to handle the regularly needed services along with the more infrequent ones is to make a customized schedule with a lawn care professional. You can work together to make sure that all of your lawn care needs are handled throughout the year.
