You’ve created a beautiful yard presentation, starting with a thoughtful design and installation process that included a lighting plan that brought out the very best parts of the yard. Now, you are faced with the year-round process of landscape maintenance. It’s something people may try and do themselves, but there are real benefits–for your yard, your quality of life and for your financial bottom line–that can make hiring a professional the right move.
There is so much more to landscape maintenance than mowing the lawn or shoveling the snow. It’s more than weeding the garden. Of course, these are essential building blocks of maintenance, but real preservation of your landscape requires a comprehensive program.
That program should include fertilizing the lawn. The improvement in the color of the grass will be a noticeable benefit. Less noticeable, but no less valuable, will be the fact that a thicker lawn amounts to a weed prevention program.
Your bushes require regular pruning, and the trees need to be consistently trimmed. The mulching needs to be taken care of in the spring, while leaf removal is a priority every fall. Your trees and shrubs should be further sprayed to protect them from insects and disease. It’s more cost-efficient to preserve the trees and bushes you have than to invest in new ones.
All of this is to say nothing of the constant care that gardens and plant beds require, with the regular watering and weeding. And there’s still the cutting of the lawn in summer and shoveling the snow come winter that’s ready and waiting.
The time you get with your family or the time you get to enjoy your friends is time that isn’t coming back after it’s gone. The time you have for your hobbies is hard enough to find in the midst of your responsibilities to your family, friends and career. Weekends and evenings are meant for these kinds of activities.
Moreover, DIY landscape maintenance doesn’t come without concrete financial costs. All these activities require buying equipment, fertilizers, and other treatments. Your landscape maintenance professional has already bought those.
Before taking on your own landscaping, do some calculations–add up the time lost and consider what you might otherwise do at that time. Add up the money you’ll still spend. Then, after all that, make your decision. If that decision is to outsource your landscape maintenance work, we’d love to help.
One of the many advantages of your original landscape design was its prospects for enhancing the value of your home and creating greater curbside appeal. A maintenance professional is a natural next step, to ensure that your investment is properly nurtured, protected, and, if possible, enhanced.
