Best Lawn Service Company Athens

When you’re ready to have someone take over your lawn care for you, it’s important to know what you’re getting into. That requires doing a little bit of research. You may know what you want but do you have any idea what a lawn care service provides? Do they trim the hedges, and mow the lawn, do they take care of the fertilizing, and do they do the edging? What comes in your yard maintenance deal? In most cases this is going to depend upon what type of package you choose. We’ll go over three different types of packages that are available for your yard care needs in Athens.

This is the lowest package, offering what is considered the most needed services. So what does this include? First mowing, it’s the thing everyone dreads spending their Saturday morning doing, so in the basic lawn care package, you’ll be able to skip the Saturday ritual in favor of sleeping in, or reading the comic strip. It will keep the home owners association at bay and the neighbors happy without you having to give up the weekend. Next in line in this lawn care basics is blowing away the mess from the paths. You won’t have to worry when it rains about slipping in the muck of soaked leaves because the lawn maintenance crew will have cleared them away. Twice a month they’re going to straighten up the edges of your lawn to keep it looking neat and tidy. Then five times during the course of the year they’ll make sure your lawn stays healthy by taking care of the fertilization for you, and during the winter they’ll care for the lawn with lime. Lastly, they’ll take care of the broadleaf weeds, the peskiest of the turf weeds. So even at the lowest end of the scale, having lawn maintenance can save you time and stress.

Finally, you get the whole kit and caboodle you get the basic and garden services mentioned above as well as, pruning, of shrubs after they bloom, of hedges when they need it, generally a few times a year. As the weather turns cold, the trees will need pruning as well, and just to put the cherry on top, they’ll take away your holiday tree, just make sure to leave the tinsel off. This covers the basics of what your lawn service should be providing; also, there are sometimes special services available, for instance if you’re pretty sure your yard is headed downhill you could look into one time only services.

Although both types of lawn grasses make for easy-care lawns, centipede grass (Eremochloa ophiuroides) and St. Augustine grass (Stenotaphrum secundatum) differ in appearance, texture and color. Centipede grass, suitable for U.S. Department of Agriculture plant hardiness zones 7 through 10, is light green and not as coarse as St. Augustine grass. St. Augustine grass, suitable in USDA zones 8 through 10, offers dense growth and a medium to dark green color. It's less cold-tolerant than any other warm season grass.
