You might be surprised to learn that your lawn care has a direct impact on your home value. Before you tune us out — after all, JayLan Lawn Care is a Siouxland lawn care company — don’t take our word for it. Ask a realtor.

We love our dogs. They’re entertaining, affectionate, and endearingly goofy. Practically any dog owner will tell you that the best part of their day is coming home to eager eyes and a wagging tail. Their antics make our day. What do they do to our lawns? Not so much. Courtesy of Jay-Lan Lawn Care, here are three ways your dog may be ruining your lawn, and how to deal with each.
Like the people who walk on it daily, your lawn needs more than just water to survive. And just like you, your lawn appreciates a balanced diet. And as the Christian Science Monitor notes, your lawn will let you know if it’s malnourished. So how can you tell if you’re feeding your lawn properly, and how do you go about choosing the right fertilizer? Good questions. Jay-Lan Lawn Care has answers.
If your childhood was anything like ours, you probably spent many hot spring and summer days in the dirt. Not playing, mind you. Weeding. Those weeds were everywhere, even — or sometimes especially — in the places we just weeded last week. And now that we’re grown up, we think to ourselves, “I still have to deal with this stuff?” If you call Jay-Lan Lawn Care, weeds like crabgrass can be a distant memory.
Just because you’re seeing a lot of green on your lawn this spring doesn’t mean that you’ve got a green thumb. Mother Nature’s a bit of a practical joker, spreading all kinds of greenery we’d rather not see on lawns all across the Midwest. These are just five of the dozens of Iowa spring weeds that Jay-Lan Lawncare can help you avoid.
If insects give you the heebie jeebies, you probably don’t want to see the list of common pests Iowa State University has compiled, or this longer list from Rodale. And if photos make you shiver, you certainly wouldn’t want to see these all-too-common pests up close and personal in your grass or infesting your vegetable garden (much less step on them while out walking barefoot). If you’re one of the countless homeowners dealing with common lawn pests, you’ll want to know what to look out for, and how to deal with them once you find them. Jay-Lan Lawn Care can help.
