July Celebration

A perfect time to show off your beautiful yard, but it may take a lot of time to get it in tiptop shape. Hire a professional to do the work for you.

Summer is almost here and so is the 4th of July, which is a very important day for all Americans. People from all walks of life celebrate this significant occasion in different ways and one of them is by going on a backyard picnic with the entire family along with close relatives and friends.

All of us want an appealing, healthy and green lawn to be attractive to our guests, especially this coming Independence Day. Achieving “picture perfect” grass that we can be proud of can only happen with the help of professionals. If you want your lawn to have a total makeover before the big day, hurry and call the experts.

Professional lawn care experts can do the job for you, and you can just watch and learn. Spend your time in more important things related to the upcoming event. Don’t get caught in a frenzy, let experience and know how take care of your yard preparations ahead of time.

Essentially, a lawn care expert would do the following tasks to make your lawn perfect for the upcoming holiday.

Lawn Fertilization
Basically, a professional will test your soil first in order to determine the exact state of your grass and come up with the appropriate solution for that issue. Using just the right amount of fertilizer will keep the weed invasion at bay. Applying too much or at the wrong time could damage and harm your lawn, which is why you need experts to make sure your soil gets the right nutrients, at the right time.

Lawn Mowing
During summer, regular mowing is very important in maintaining the maximum health of your grass. For every species of grass, there is a recommended height that should be followed. For bahia grass, the highest suggested height is 3.5 inches to 4 inches, centipede grass species requires an optimal height of 1 inch to 2 inches while zoysia grass is at 1.5 inches to 2 inches. Lawn care experts know that scalping can stress and upset your lawn and can make grass vulnerable to drought, weed invasion, and diseases.

Weed removal
Experts will remove any weed invasion from your lawn. They will get rid of the weeds using various techniques and weed killers, according to the kind of weed that is nesting in your yard. Crabgrass is dealt with using pre-emergent weed products, while dandelion weeds are destroyed by allowing them to grow and die. For a broadleaf weed, they are demolished while growing and still young, spraying the leaves to make it more effective.

Aeration involves punching the soil to make small holes to allow water, oxygen, and nutrients to go through and work their way to the roots of the grass. This process helps the roots grow deeper and helps in yielding a healthier and stronger lawn.

Now that your lawn has been taken care of by an expert, you can prep your yard for the party by hanging a flag outside, cook some barbecue, arrange seats and just have some fun.
