Top 5 Lawn Care Services

Hello all! The idea for this post came to me after talking to my nephew who just purchased his first home. As new homeowners, he and his wife knew little about what taking care of a lawn entailed, so I thought to write a little something up to help him and others in a similar situation. So without further ado, here are my top 5 most important lawn care services for all of the new homeowners out there!

Fertilization

If you want a lush green lawn, you will need to fertilize, plain and simple. And from my experience, the best lawns have been fertilized efficiently and consistently according to a set schedule.

Weeding

Though this one should be a no-brainer, if you’re going to do the weeding yourself be careful not to overspray herbicides, which could have a very negative impact on your lawn. Plus, just digging weeds is inexpensive and very effective.

Soil Treatment

If you have brown spots on your lawn it may point to a pesky critter infestation (moles and voles anyone?), which should have you reaching for the phone (or clicking the link below) to get some professional help. But it also may just mean that you need a soil treatment like Revive, which breaks down hard soils to get water where it’s needed most. Some insects will cause brown spots even if you water!

Aeration

Aerating your lawn twice a year (spring and fall are optimal) will do wonders for your lawn! What exactly is aeration you ask? Well, aeration is the process whereby an aerator device (looks like a lawn mower) is used to make holes in the lawn that allow water and fertilizer to seep in and get to the plant’s root.

Lawn Mowing

The last and final one should be another no-brainer, but that’s why I put it last. Planned and proper lawn mowing is essential to any lawn care program. Either do it yourself or hire the professionals, but either way, don’t forget about this critical task!

Well, that’s my list. Hope you learned a thing or two. One thing the new homeowners should be aware of is that some companies offer a lawn care service special for new customers. (Check out this special offered by local Denver company Mountain High Tree, which comes with five treatments including one free).

It’s Never too Early or too Late to Start Thinking about Moles & Voles

It’s been a while since I’ve posted anything on here, so I wanted to write a bit on something that has caused me and my lawn a lot of problems in the past.

It’s unfortunate, but with moles and voles it’s never possible to say, “it’s that time of year again,” because with these little creatures, it’s always that time of year. Though you may have never heard of them before, voles are little mice like creatures that bury themselves in your lawn in order to protect themselves from predators. Like moles, voles have a propensity for not caring how much time and effort you’ve put into your front yard or garden.

If you’re in the Denver area like me, you may be more familiar than the average person about the mole and vole populations here, that have gotten a good deal of publicity during the last few years on account of the havoc they have wreaked on yards around the city. Though, I’ll be honest when I say that when I first encountered the surface trails of chewed vegetation and small holes at the end of the trail, I had no idea what I was dealing with. Only after doing some research online did I speculate that I had a vole problem on my hands, but decided to call up my local Denver lawn care and landscape company to make sure I knew exactly what I was dealing with.

Because voles do the most damage during winter when food is scarce, it’s important to start thinking about vole management before that, even before you see the first sign of them if you’ve been known to have vole problems. While I’ve neglected to do this in the past and learned my lesson the hard way, don’t let that make you think it’s too late either. Last year I called the good people at Mountain High Tree, who were able to give me the professional help to get a handle on these ungracious little guests and get my yard looking like new again.
