How Often Do You Need Your Landscaper?

A well-designed landscape can improve your home’s aesthetic appeal, support the local ecosystem, and provide a space where you can relax & unwind after work every day. However, landscapes need regular care and maintenance. Proper maintenance treats current problems before they snowball into major issues and prevents future issues.

Whether you want to maintain or upgrade your landscape, hire a professional. A landscaper has the experience and expertise to come up with cost-effective solutions to landscaping problems. They have an in-depth understanding of the principles of landscape design and landscape maintenance best practices.

How Often Should I Seek Professional Help?

Have a professional perform routine landscape maintenance tasks such as mowing your lawn, removing debris, edging curb and bed lines, and pruning wayward branches every week or once every two weeks. Your contractor should carry out an irrigation system inspection once every month. Fertilizing, lawn feeding, and tree trimming can be done annually or bi-annually. A good landscape maintenance company in Santa Rosa will send out technicians to kill weeds in your flower beds every four months, so you have a weed-free garden. The team responsible for improving your garden should stop by every 3-4 months to refresh mulch and add bright seasonal flowers to your landscape. Still unsure when to seek professional help? Here are some signs it’s time to have a professional inspect your landscape and perform landscape maintenance tasks.

Your Lawn is Damaged or Diseased

Infectious plant diseases are usually caused by pathogenic organisms such as viruses, bacteria, fungi, protozoa, and parasitic plants & insects. Foliage discoloration, distortion, shirking, curling, and thickening of leaves or petioles can indicate a plant disease. If you fail to move quickly to contain the problem, viruses can jump from the diseased plants to the healthy plants in your garden, and as a result, you may be staring at a full-blown crisis. Before things go from bad to worse, have a professional inspect your landscape. With their trained eyes, a landscaper can detect subtle signs of plant diseases that DIY enthusiasts often miss. Once your landscape contractor identifies the pathogenic organism that caused the disease, they will devise a plan to kill them without affecting your plants.

Tree and Plant Overcrowding

Overcrowded plants and trees are an eyesore. They compete for soil nutrients. You may have to water overcrowded plants and trees more frequently. As a result, your water bill can shoot up. Your landscape contractor can come up with a plan to space your plants and trees so they get the nutrients they need to survive and thrive.
