What Can I Expect From Residential Gardening Services? | The Experienced Gardener

If you’ve never hired a professional gardening service before, you might be confused about the services available. Usually, people assume that gardeners only work at large estates with yards that are too vast for a homeowner to handle alone. And while it’s true that the wealthy often employ gardeners, we do plenty of work for middle-class families.

Because you see, a professional gardener will do much more than merely cut the grass or trim your tree branches. Residential gardening services actually provide many great benefits, and we can cater our services to meet your specific needs. 

  • Let’s Start With the Grass

Anybody with a lawnmower can figure out how to mow the lawn, and we’re not going to reinvent that. But we can provide tips on how to mow your lawn better – for instance, did you know taller grass is better during the summer? It helps to block weeds from the sunlight, which will stunt their growth. Or that standing water on your lawn will lead to the development of fungus? That’s why drainage is so important. This is the kind of expertise you can expect from a professional gardener.

  • Keeping Your Lawn Free of Pests and Weeds

Landscape pests can wreak havoc on your lawn, which is why we are proficient at dealing with rodents. Whether it’s gophers, moles or squirrels, we can help you get rid of them. Beyond that, we can also provide quality weed control. Weeds rob your grass of resources and create an eyesore, so it’s imperative that you eliminate them. We can get it done in a jiffy. 

  • Protecting Your Trees From Disease 

Few things make us sadder than a majestic old tree being felled by disease. And unfortunately, there are a variety of parasites, fungi and diseases that can destroy residential trees. But when you hire a professional gardener, you have someone on hand that can identify the early warning signs of disease. That’s important, because not only will it give us a chance to save the tree, it will prevent the disease from spreading to other plantlife in the area.
