Here are three key tips that companies avoid at their peril. On the other side of the coin, practicing these three things helps create consistent and universal results that people will love after they have paid for these types of services.
Take Care of the Edges
Yes, you can mow a large expanse of grass, but it still doesn’t look very great unless you can trim up the edges nicely.
It’s kind of like giving someone a haircut – there’s a certain package process that goes together, and neglecting any aspect of that makes the result look, well, not so good.
Our technicians take care to factor that into the process. In general, we pride ourselves on the details. Why? Because in this business, in some ways, the details are nearly everything. The difference between a job well done and a half-hearted one can come down to details.
Know Your Species
Knowing the type of grass that you’re dealing with, as well as various invasive species, is also a big advantage when it comes to micromanaging your exterior space.
Different types of weeds can encroach on the lawn pretty quickly, and the lawn care technicians should know what they’re dealing with – how it grows, where it came from, what it’s likely to do in a certain growing season, etc. Then they know how to keep it at bay, and prevent the “jungle” look that property owners fear during a growing season.
A Light Touch
Sometimes part of the professionalism that you get is technicians who can pull back on some treatments and make sure they are appropriate to the individual property.
For example, take mowing, something that many different people do many different ways.
You might think at first glance that it’s great to shave your grass down to a couple of inches, but according to established lawn science, it should be quite a bit longer. And mowing should just take off a bit at a time, because grass uses its length to create natural air conditioning to protect it from heat and drying.
Think about all of these three things when you’re hiring a landscaping company. Get professional help from Green Life Property Services and the army of gnomes to keep everything looking just right.
