The Importance of Lawn Maintenance

Your lawn has become the status symbol of today’s suburban family. The health and vitality of your lawn greatly reflects on you and your home. Simply said; it’s not common to drive by a beautiful, sprawling mansion and see a dead, yellow lawn, is it?. Whether you realize it or not, the majority of us spend thousands of dollars annually to ensure our lawn is healthy and presentable.

In order to guarantee your lawn is healthy and green at all times, lawn care is extremely important. As much as we wish it was as simple as occasionally watering it, lawn maintenance is a little more complex than that. Pulling weeds, fertilizing, testing the soil, monitoring its calcium intake and much more are all vital components that lawns need to thrive on.

Of course most of us don’t have the time to devote to our lawn each week, which is why a great option among homeowners is hiring lawn care maintenance professionals like A&B Lawn and Landscape. We have the tools and equipment to professionally manicure and care for your lawn. We will trim back your bushes, cut your lawn, water your garden, pull weeds, apply fertilizer, and do whatever we can to make your lawn make you look like the neighborhood all star.

Tips & Tricks

Finding that perfect trick for an extraordinary garden can be tough. Luckily, A & B Lawn and Landscape is here to help. Listed below are a few tips and tricks to keep your garden going strong.

  • Little clay pots make great cloches for protecting young plants from sudden, overnight frosts and freezes.
  • The next time you boil or steam vegetables, don’t pour the water down the drain, use it to water potted patio plants, and you’ll be amazed at how the plants respond to the “vegetable soup.”
  • To remove the salt deposits that form on clay pots, combine equal parts white vinegar, rubbing alcohol and water in a spray bottle. Apply the mixture to the pot and scrub with a plastic brush. Let the pot dry before you plant anything in it.
