Five Ways a Professional Lawn Care Service Can Keep Your Yard Greener

Having served the Siouxland region for over 40 years, Jay-Lan Lawn Care has provided professional lawn care services to thousands of customers. If you’re wondering how our company can keep your yard greener, we’re happy to share the following five reasons.

Watering

We all know that a lawn (taken collectively) is a living plant, and as such needs water not just to survive, but also to attain that lush green look we all want. Mother Nature looks after a lawn’s water needs for most of the year, supplying refreshment via rain and soil. However, it’s during the dry periods in summer and part of fall when the lawn care expertise of our Sioux City experts is most needed. Rather than let your lawn reach that straw-like state that indicates a critical lack of water, count on our company to provide the proper irrigation. This means ensuring your lawn gets 1 – 2 inches of water weekly, or more depending on the heat.

Tending The Soil

There’s an old saying that goes, “A lawn is only as good as the soil it grows in”. For this reason it’s important to have an experienced lawn care service partner that understands how to look after your lawn’s root zone. We have the know-how to optimize the efficiency and condition of your lawn’s roots, including the application of organic matter to consistently improve the soil. This organic matter feeds the billions of helpful bacteria that reside within your lawn, enhancing nutrient production and root mass.

Protection Against Insects and Disease

Left unchecked, insects – specifically, grubs – can wreak havoc on your lawn, in some cases destroying it completely. Also, certain lawn diseases can accelerate the dry-out process, turning your once-verdant lawn into straw. As for weeds, we all know the problems they create. Jay-Lan Lawn Care has the skill and the tools to protect your lawn against these threats. We use safe, organic lawn chemicals to keep insects and disease in check, and our weed control solutions are second-to-none.

Fertilizing

Self-fertilizing your lawn once or twice a year isn’t good enough if you want a lawn that’s perpetually lush and green. Fertilizer should be distributed year-round, which is why fertilization is an important component of our lawn care program for customers in Sioux City and surrounding towns. Between spring and late fall we’ll undertake several fertilizer applications, steadily enhancing your lawn’s color and thickness.

Mowing

Mowing a lawn isn’t a sophisticated job, but cutting the grass to the right height can be tricky. For this reason, contracting with a lawn treatment company in Siouxland is a smart move. Cutting the grass too short hurts a lawn’s root system by reducing the amount of available water conserver and soil conditioner, with the result being a discolored lawn. Avoiding this problem necessitates an expert’s touch, and our lawn pros know to cut off only 1/3 of the grass length with every mow. Doing this ensures the health of your grass, especially since we sharpen our lawn mower blades a few times a year to ensure effectiveness.
