If you are going to be busy with work or for other reasons, you likely do not have time to take care of your landscaping. Part of landscaping is mowing the lawn, and this is something that should be done regularly. One thing you can do is hire a lawn mowing service. Below are different services they can offer you.
If you have a large property, there will likely be more than one person there mowing. They use commercial mowers which generally go much faster than other mowers so they can mow quickly.
There are many reasons you should keep your lawn mowed. First, it increases your curb appeal. Your neighbors will not appreciate it if you keep your grass too long. Mowing also keeps the grass short so it can absorb nutrients and water much easier. If there are weeds on the lawn mowing will cut them down to make it easier to control them. Some weeds can be removed by hand, but there are others that are much more difficult to remove. Mowing also helps prevent pests from setting up home on your lawn. There are many pests that live in grass such as grubs, chinch bugs, and billbugs.
Aerate Your Lawn
If your lawn is not in good condition the soil may be compacted. Rain and nutrients cannot get through compacted soil, which means the roots are not watered enough or getting enough nutrients. This can cause dead grass in different areas, or the grass may not grow at all. The lawn mowing service may suggest that you aerate your lawn to take care of the compaction problem.
There are spike aerators that punch holes in the soil and there are other aerators that remove plugs of dirt and leave these plugs sitting on the lawn. You can purchase an aerator at a home improvement store. If you have a small lawn, there are aerators that you can connect to the back of your lawnmower. If you have a large lawn, ask the lawn mowing service to do this for you. If you have areas where there is no grass, the lawn mowing service will plant grass seeds for you.
The lawn mowing service can do much more for you, such as applying mulch, edging and trimming, seasonal trimming, and much more. Ask the lawn mowing service you hire what other services they can provide you with. For more information on lawn mowing, contact a professional near you.
