The Benefits To Using A Professional Landscaping Service

Take any professional service in any field; it would be evident that there are certain advantages to using the professionals as compared to those people that do not follow it as a profession.  Laid out in brief are the advantages of calling in a professional landscaper as compared to a less qualified worker.  

Aesthetics Of The Setting

The first thing that would be evident from a professional worker would be the improved looks as well as feel to a landscaped garden.  It is always the properly trained worker that can relate to spaces and how light can be used to good effect in settings. The role of light is important as during the day there is a shift in focus of natural light from the bluer hue to more of an orange shade as the day progresses and this effect would be best highlighted by someone that is trained to do so.  

Economy Of Material

The hallmark of most amateur work is that there is a fair amount of wastage of work material as well as time used up.  In situations where time is indeed money, the role of the professional worker cannot be emphasized enough.  Of particular note must be the use of something as scarce as, yet needed in abundance in any landscaping work and that is water.  It is possible for water bodies to get polluted if sufficient care is not exercised in the proper utilization of the same.  

Cost Of The Project As A Whole

The professional landscaper does get to execute a work in the least time as well in the best possible manner.  This would involve the most optimum utilization of all sorts of resources and also the ability of people involved with the work as well.  In the end, this approach is going to provide a result that is best in terms of presentability as well as economy of materials used.  

Techniques That Professionals Bring

It must be said of the professionals that they tend to use the most up to date ways of performing tasks and use the best possible machinery to handle situations too. The improved technique comes to provide the project with a lot of advantages as laid out by an improved set of aesthetics as well as wear and tear on machinery. The increased expenses in using the services of a professional would be had in return as faster work in addition to a better overall finish of work.  

Balanced Appearances To Layouts

When professional landscapers are sought to be used, it is the usual for them to bring about an approach that is not heavily loaded towards any particular aspect of work.  Thus there would be a balance of trees as well as the supportive lawns and such structures.  The amateurs tend to be heavy in the use of some elements while ignoring other aspects.  In effect, the garden set tends to look heavy in some aspects yet absent in others.  

How to Create Your Own Residential Landscape Design

Growing up in Brisbane I was held responsible for keeping the grass cut.  It seemed that every single weekend throughout the spring and summer months I spent a few hours outside getting hot and sticky mowing that lawn.  It didn’t have to rain.  Back there we couldn’t keep the grass from growing!  In fact, many of us (particularly those of us who spent our free time mowing ) would have spent our own money to kill every blade of grass we saw and never deal with it again.

When I moved out west to the sun and DRY it came as a total shock to see people intentionally watering their yards.  I mean, people actually WANTED their grass to live?  Clearly these desert dwellers had no real concept of mowing, or so I assumed. I understood so well, in fact, that I became one of those crazy people standing in the yard watering her grass!

Unfortunately, having to water the grass and knowing HOW and WHEN to water it completely separate issues.  Yes, for those who live in wetter climates where mother nature tends to the lawn, there are rules that we drier-climate folks should follow.  These rules not only help conserve our precious natural resources (water) but they also help ensure that our lawns get the proper amount to drink when it is most needed.

Without further ado, here are the rules:

Watering should only be done first thing in the morning. “First thing” means before the sun starts heating us up.  By watering early, you not only give the grass a healthy drink to help it survive the day in the heat; you also provide less opportunity for the water to evaporate as a result of the heat.

If you’re thinking of watering at night to be tricky, don’t. Watering at night is at the opposite end of the spectrum. The absence of the sun means the grass is more likely to sit in wet soil overnight, providing plenty of opportunity for various fungus and molds to develop.

Watering should only penetrate roughly 1 inch into the ground. Anything more than that is a waste. Grass has very shallow roots and therefore can’t access any resources below the 1 inch mark. Slow, light watering is most effective. Avoid using such a heavy flow that the water actually runs off into unwanted places, i.e. the driveway or the street.

Grass does NOT need to be watered daily. Typically every second or third day will suffice.  Here’s how to test whether or not your lawn needs a drink:  walk across the grass with your shoes on.  If you can see where your footprints are, your grass is thirsty and you should water appropriately.

That’s it!  All you really need to know about watering the lawn.  Pretty simple, eh?
