Benefits of Grounds Maintenance
Cleaning our and "sprucing up" your yard and keeping an eye on the common areas are great low-cost alternatives to major home improvement and amplify the value of properties in the community. Whether you hire a professional or are an energetic "do-it-yourselfer", here are some tips to improving the health and appearance of your lawn/landscape.
- Weeding and edging plant beds and applying mulch go a long way toward improving your yard's appearance.
- Planting colorful annuals in beds or pots around the house, patio and/or deck make a home look clean, cared for, and cozy to community visitors and interested buyers.
- To solve challenges (e.g., soil erosion due to heavy rains) and/or add interest to a home, planting trees and/or shrubs to create focus areas can camouflage foundations and old fencing.
- Having your trees and shrubs professionally pruned may be an alternative if difficult to find the extra time for maintenance. Consider having professionals repair brown spots in your lawn, including removing any diseased plants.
Homeowners who want help with their yard should seek an evaluation by a professional lawn or landscape firm. A professional can assess the health of the lawn, plants, trees and shrubs, and offer recommendations for improvement and maintenance.
