Now that spring is almost here it is time to think about your landscaping. If you want a beautiful yard, you should consider hiring a landscaping company. This will make things much easier for you and save you a lot of time. Below is information on how they can help you.  

Help With the Lawn

In spring your property is waking up from a winter rest and will need some maintenance to help it get going again. A landscape services company can assist you with this by aerating your lawn. Aerating creates holes in the soil to help with soil compaction. This allows water and nutrients, as well as air, to reach the roots of the grass. There are plug aerators that remove plugs from the soil. Leave the plugs in place because they will break down on their own. There are also spike aerators that punch holes in the ground without leaving plugs of soil. 

If there are any areas of your yard with dead grass, the landscape services company can reseed your lawn for you. Reseeding will allow much healthier grass to grow, ensuring your lawn is beautiful. If you have a lot of weeds on your lawn, the contractor can help you with this as well. 

Maintain and Plant Flowers

If you have perennials planted in your yard, the landscape services company will ensure they are in good condition. They may need some fertilizer to help them grow this year. If you have flower gardens, the contractor may put new edging around them if needed. If the flower gardens do not have any edging, they will suggest you have one. Edging separates the flower gardens, as well as helps prevent grass from getting into the gardens. 

If you do not have a flower garden or any flowers planted but you would like to have them in your yard, the contractor can help you choose flowers for your yard. Choosing the right flowers is important because they need to grow well in your growing zone. The flowers also need to have the right amount of sun where you plant them. There are many flowers you can choose from. Some perennials include coneflowers, black-eyed Susans, some daisies, asters, lilies, and many more. Annual flowers include petunias, vincas, begonias, marigolds, and more. 

There are many more things a landscape services company can do for you, such as install an irrigation system and prune and trim hedges and bushes.
