Weekly vs. Bi-weekly Lawn Care

Good Lawn Care doesn’t just happen; it is a conscience choice and requires constant maintenance.   Healthy lawns require weekly mowing.  There’s just no getting around it.  It’s easy to think that bi-weekly lawn care will make your life easier but it usually makes it more difficult.  Think about it.  It’s not just the fact of having twice the growth to cut; it’s also a matter of having at least double the water content in the grass.  Longer grass decreases the rate of evaporation.  The chute of the lawn mower gets clogged, wet grass sticks to the underside of the mower, bending over and emptying the grass catcher doubles, and large clumps of grass tend to get deposited around the lawn which kills the grass in that spot if it is left there.  It can easily triple the time it takes to mow your lawn.

 

Weekly Mowing 2

 

Weekly lawn care can help your lawn maintain a green, lush look.  Grass needs sunlight and when the blades are allowed to grow too long too consistently, the lower part of the blade begins to turn yellow.  Weekly lawn care allows plenty of sun to penetrate the grass and keep your lawn looking green.  It also decreases fungus risk because the soil isn’t allowed to become swampy.  Additionally, weeds are able to hide beneath the long blades and develop a strong root before they can be noticed and sprayed or removed.  Finally, the various problems spoken about earlier in this post are, for the most part, eliminated.  At the end of the day, weekly lawn care is by far the better way to go to maintain a healthy lawn.

Getting Your Lawn Ready for Fall

Getting Your Lawn Ready for Fall
When the leaves start changing and the nights get longer. You should start thinking about preparing your lawn for the cold fall nights. The way we approach the fall is making sure that you have everything nice and tidy. Ensuring that your lawn is cut properly will help it maintain the proper amount of water. This will help stimulate new growth when snow starts to melt. You should also look at edging or trimming your yard to help keep your lawn looking professional. This can also help control pesky weeds that may pop up due to overgrowth in your lawn.
This is also the time of year to start winterizing your sprinkler system. Having pipes break during the cold it bad enough but is a nightmare during the spring. During the fall it is beneficial to plant certain flowers and other plants that pop up during spring.  If you feel like you do not have enough time please give us a call and see how we can help.

Block Edging

Block Edging vs. Traditional Trimming
When you envision lawn care many think of the perfectly cut lawn; where the grass is thick, soft, and green. Many also think of nice pathways and even flower beds.

Because of these benefits we stray away from the traditional trimming and instead focus on edging to give your lawn the professional look and care it deserves.

Importance of Mowing with Sharp Lawn Blades

The Importance of Mowing with Sharp Lawn Blades
When your lawn is being mowed it is important to make sure the right tools are being used. Many are familiar with the basic tools used: a lawn mower, weed whacker, leaf blower, and many other lawn tools. However many forget or even neglect the inner workings of these machines. Primarily a lawn mower blade, they often are mangled and chipped from normal wear and tear.
What many people do not know about their lawn mower blade is that it plays a crucial part in making sure your lawn is cut properly. When your lawn is being cut you want the blade to do its job and actually cut the top of the grass. If the blade is chipped and unsharpened it does not cut, instead it simply tears the lawn. This can put a strain on the lawn itself in growing. Because of this you can sometimes have everything right but still your lawn dies in portions. In order to help promote proper trimming we sharpen our mowing blades regularly and even daily as needed. So let the professionals help you, call Local Edge Lawn Care today!

Transitioning Your Lawn From Spring to Summer

Need Help Getting Your Yard Ready for Summer?

Here at Local Edge, we know the importance of having your yard look nice as it makes the transformation from spring to summer. As the weather starts getting warmer, most grass types will start to grow rapidly which is a good thing, but you have to make sure that you have someone to stay on top of the trimming or else you run the risk of your grass growing over into your flower beds.

The warmer weather also means that the weeds will grow faster too, so it is very important to keep your grass trimmed so that the longer grass is not providing shade to the weeds to help in their growth.  Another thing about the fast approaching summer is figuring out how much to water your lawn and flowers, so having a professional helping you to figure out how much water your yard is going to need is also a good thing.
