Creating An Inviting Yard

I have always been one of those people who loves to create a warm, inviting atmosphere for others, which is why I started looking at landscaping design in the first place. It was incredible to me to see how much of a difference I was able to make by adding a few new plants, and after that first project, I wanted to help other people. I started volunteering to help friends and neighbors do their landscaping, and after a few months, I had developed quite a following. This blog is all about creating a warm, inviting yard through smart landscaping and an eye for detail.

What Services Can A Lawn Care Service Offer Besides Mowing?

by Addison Washington

When you have a busy life, keeping your grass mowed can be a real pain that takes up too much time, especially if you have a sizeable piece of property. Hiring a lawn care service to keep your grass mowed is a logical choice for most homeowners who either don't have the time or the equipment to do it themselves. However, these amazingly valuable professionals usually offer far more than just cutting grass. If you want to get the most out of lawn care services, check out this short list of common services they have to offer outside of mowing your yard. 

Lawn Seeding

If your yard is looking less than stellar and is bare in spots, as your lawn care provider if they do seeding services. Lawn seeding is the process of implanting grass seed into the soil to nurture full growth. 

Lawn Fertilizing

Be the envy of all your neighbors with a yard that is deep jade and obviously healthy by having your lawn care provider fertilize your yard. Fertilizing should be done on a regular basis to promote strong and healthy grass growth, but this is a task that can easily be neglected by a busy homeowner because it is a time-consuming process. 


Have you got spots in your yard that are more filled with weeds than anything else? Weeds can kill an otherwise healthy yard and even make it harder to maintain, but a good lawn care service provider can easily tackle weeds for you. Whether it is spraying areas where weeds or no growth should be or pulling weed sprouts from your lawn, this could be handled on your behalf. 

Minor Tree Trimming

If you have a tree in your yard that needs pruning because it is growing out of shape or has dead branches, ask the lawn care service if they can handle this for you. Many of these service professionals do offer minor tree pruning to their customer, especially for those trees with low-hanging branches that get in the way of mowing around them. 


Maybe you have a sidewalk or other landscape feature that you would like to plant some flowers around or along the sides. If you do, getting the grass out of the way is the first step in the process. Your lawn care provider may offer edging as an additional process, which will definitely make your landscaping plans much easier to achieve.
