A beautifully maintained garden is what every outdoor enthusiast strives for, but the reality is that it takes a lot of hard work and dedication! Sometimes, you might need to enlist the help of a local garden maintenance company to help get things under control. Let’s take a look at some reasons why you might need to use a company like us.
What can garden maintenance companies do?
Firstly, you need to figure out what your gardening goals are. Do you need regular maintenance such as grass cutting or weed removal? Or do you want a full on-off garden renovation? Maybe you’d like to continue with the gardening tasks yourself, but need a little guidance on what to do and when to do it.
There’s not really any special way to weed effectively, we all know the usual tips and tricks… but how nice would it be for someone else to do the hard work for you?!
Weeding is a manual process, which means a lot of hard work and time you might not necessarily have. Weeding includes the removal of weeds from flower beds and lawns, a weed killer can be used if necessary and weed-reducing methods such as mulch or weed mat can be placed if that’s what you’d prefer.
Mowing the lawn can admittedly be a laborious task. But, it needs to be done to maintain the quality of your grass. Garden maintenance services can include monthly, bi-monthly grass cutting and of course, any other time frame that suits you.
Other than mowing, services may include edging, watering and leaf blowing. If you choose a professional garden maintenance company (like us!) we can bring a high-quality lawnmower, or a ride-on mower if you have a large lawn. This speeds up the process and makes for a more precise finish.
Hedge and Shrub Trimming
Hedges, bushes and shrubs can quickly get out of control, especially with the unpredictable weather we have here fuelling their growth! A regular hedge trim can help to keep them in a presentable state, keeping your garden tidy and keeping your home looking its best.
Overgrown hedges and shrubs not only look unsightly, but they can also pose a health and safety hazard. Large hedges with overhanging branches can be unsafe, and hedges blocking paths affect accessibility. Tall hedges can also block well-needed light from your home!
Fencing and Landscaping
Fencing not only gives you privacy, but it can also add some character to your outdoor space. There are many different types of fencing, some of which we’ve outlined in our previous blog if you want to check it out.
Old and worn fences, especially after a bad winter, can be a health risk if left alone, so it’s important to replace any battered and beaten panels as soon as possible.
Why is regular garden maintenance important?
If you value your outdoor space but you simply don’t have the time to spend making it look the way you envision; then a garden maintenance service is a great choice for you. Similarly, if you’re unable to do as much as you’d like due to health issues, then getting professionals to tend to your garden is a good idea.
