A great company, like All Seasons Landcare, will do all of that and more to ensure your lawn care needs are being met consistently.

True professionals are trained to recognize factors that can affect the quality of your lawn before a bigger problem develops. This is important because being proactive with lawn care can save you lots of time and money in the long run. A professional trained in lawn care and maintenance will know how to address potential problems based on where you live as well as the type of soil and grass that you have. However, no matter where you live, three general factors that can have a big impact on your yard are water, weather, and pests and they are all interrelated to some degree.

Water

Not having proper irrigation or drainage for your yard can cause damage quickly.
Over watering can prevent oxygen from reaching the roots of the grass stunting its growth and increasing the risk for weeds that can thrive in areas too wet for grass growth. Too much water also promotes fungus and can result in unsightly mushrooms popping up throughout your yard. On the other hand, not watering enough can result in brown spots. Although grass can lie dormant for several weeks, if left unwatered for too long, it will eventually die and new grass will need to be planted.

Weather

Many areas of the country experience different seasons of the year and lawn care should be adjusted based on the season. Most people know that weather conditions such as heat and drought or excessive rainfall can adversely affect a lawn. However, other conditions such as consistent wind in dry, arid areas or high humidity in others can wreak havoc as well. Wind can cause sprinkler systems to malfunction by causing over watering in some areas and under watering in others. Wind can also cause soil erosion and can stunt plant growth. High humidity, in others areas, can encourage fungus and mold growth.

Pests are attracted to grass and plants for many different reasons. Over watered lawns can provide an attractive habitat for insects by lowering the effectiveness of insecticides. Everything from grasshoppers to gophers can cause significant damage to your yard. Also, ants and anthills aren’t necessarily harmful to grass, but they aren’t attractive and can harm you or your pet. Once an anthill emerges, if it’s not addressed quickly several others may follow.

When it comes to managing your yard, water, weather, and pests are all in a day’s work for knowledgeable lawn care professionals. They know what to look for and can prevent a problem before any significant damage can occur.

If you are in the mid-Cities of Hurst, Euless, and Bedford or in other areas such as North Fort Worth, Keller, Southlake, and Colleyville, All Seasons Landcare has the expertise to manage your lawn to keep it healthy and looking great throughout the year.
