Achieving a beautiful and healthy lawn is a priority for most homeowners in Texas. However, attaining such a lawn can be difficult and time-consuming. To make your life easy, you should schedule the following four lawn care services: lawn mowing, fertilization, weed control, and aeration. Having your lawn mowed regularly will ensure your lawn always looks neat and manicured. Fertilization will provide your lawn with the nutrients it needs to thrive. Weed control will keep your property free of nutrient-stealing weeds. Aeration will loosen compacted soil so that nutrients and other resources can reach the roots of your lawn. By scheduling these lawn care services, you can rest easy knowing that you’ll have a beautiful and healthy lawn without having to lift a finger!

1. Lawn Mowing

To keep your lawn looking its best throughout the year, you will need to ensure it is mowed regularly. While this can be a time-consuming and difficult task, it needs to be done if you want to maintain the curb appeal of your property. By signing up for a lawn mowing service, you can rest easy knowing your lawn will be mowed on a regular basis so that it always looks neat and manicured and you won't have to do any of the work yourself!

Before hiring a company to mow your lawn, make sure that string-trimming, edging, and blowing debris off hardscapes is included with their service.

2. Fertilization

To ensure that your lawn is receiving the nutrients that it needs to thrive throughout the year, you should enroll in a fertilization program. When your lawn is fertilized regularly, it will have the nutrients it needs to develop a strong root system, keep its vibrant green look, and stay healthy enough to fight off diseases that may occur. There are two types of fertilizers that are commonly used:

  • Granular- This type of fertilizer is designed to slowly release nutrients into your soil over an extended period of time.
  • Liquid- Liquid fertilizers absorb into your soil very quickly and provide your lawn with nutrients almost immediately.

Look for a company that includes lawn insect treatments with their fertilization program so you won't have to worry about insects damaging your grass.

3. Weed Control

Keeping your lawn weed-free all year long is an important part of maintaining a healthy and beautiful lawn. When you sign up for a weed control service, the company you are hiring will likely tackle the weeds on your lawn through a combination of pre- and post-emergent treatments. Pre-emergent weed control is designed to prevent newly germinated weeds from sprouting through the soil while post-emergent treatments will take care of any existing weeds in your lawn. By signing up for a professional weed control program, you can rest easy knowing that your lawn will remain weed-free.

4. Aeration

Soil can become compacted throughout the year due to heavy foot traffic, the use of lawn mowers, and even rainfall. If the soil on your lawn is compacted, nutrients and other resources will have a tough time reaching the roots of your grass. To combat this problem, you should schedule an aeration service. This type of service is designed to loosen compacted soil to make it easy for nutrients to reach the roots of your grass. You can schedule an aeration service any time during the growing season, but you should schedule it at least once per year to ensure that the roots of your grass always have access to the nutrients they need to thrive.
