Well-maintained landscaping in Calgary is a feast for the eyes but you also need to spend time, effort and money to keep these outdoor spaces looking great. Very few people find it easy to allocate time for regular and proper lawn and garden maintenance and this neglect can affect the health and appearance of your landscape. Here are five reasons why regular yard maintenance is important.
Curb Appeal And Value Addition
Curb appeal is an essential aspect of a well-maintained home and its yard. Not every outdoor space needs to be elaborately landscaped but it should be well maintained. A house with pleasant and manicured yard areas will have better resale value. Buyers are attracted to properties that have well-maintained gardens and lawns. A drab, poorly-maintained landscape is an eyesore and reduces the sale price of your home as well as the other homes in your neighbourhood.
Weeds Destroy The Look
A poorly maintained yard is a fertile ground for weeds to grow and thrive. It is also difficult to entirely remove weeds that are deep-rooted in the soil. It doesn’t take long for these weeds to grow rampantly in your landscaping in Calgary. This makes it difficult and time-consuming to develop a new lawn. Weeds similarly destroy flower beds making it very challenging for you to restore their health and beauty.
Controlling Insects, Pests, And Bugs
A well-maintained garden needs more than regular watering and mowing. Different varieties of insect species like beetles and other pests burrow into the soil and kill the grass roots. Ticks and mosquitoes breed in poorly maintained gardens. We provide excellent pest control solutions as part of our maintenance plans for landscaping in Calgary.
Fertilization Helps Maintain The Health Of Your Yard
Lawns have a thin layer of topsoil and the fertilizers get depleted faster compared to deep soils. This slows down the growth of the vegetation and affects its appearance as well. It is essential to add a mix of soil and fertilizers to your lawn during spring & fall to boost its growth. A lush and flourishing garden needs fertilizer applications twice a year. This will ensure your lawns, bushes and trees stay looking great right round the year.
