If you’ve ever tried to maintain your property's landscaping, then you likely know it can be a bit overwhelming. You spend one whole weekend weeding, pruning and tidying up just to turn around and have to do it again a few weeks later. As a living, growing thing, your lawn and landscaping needs constant care. That’s why you should consider handing over routine landscape maintenance to a pro.
Landscape pros understand what it takes to maintain any type of lawn and landscaping. They also understand how valuable your time and money is to you. By hiring a landscaping pro, you are not just saving valuable time, you are also saving money.
When looking at hiring a landscape pro, here's a few things to consider besides time and money:
Maintains Your Curb Appeal (and Property Value)
Proactive landscaping gets ahead of things like overgrown bushes, weeds, and yard debris. When you maintain your own landscaping, it tends to be from a reactive perspective. Meaning no action is taken until things are already overgrown or in need of extensive care.
That's why routine landscaping maintenance is a much better approach. It gets ahead of all of that and keeps your property's curb appeal neat, tidy and looking on point. Which in turn, benefits your homes property value. Curb appeal is directly correlated to property value.
Prevents Ongoing Aggravation (and Issues)
Unkept landscaping doesn't just make your property look bad, it can actually mean your landscaping is becoming unhealthy. The longer landscaping is left alone, the longer your plants might be suffering.
For example, when weeds start to run rampant, your plants and shrubs have to compete with them for sunlight, nutrients and water. This can mean that the weeds are preventing your landscaping from getting what it needs to grow and thrive. Same goes for over grown plants and shrubs.
When plants and shrubs become overgrown, excessive pruning and trimming has to take place. This leads to an excess amount of injury, which can take the plant or shrub more energy to recover in order to grow. Which, can sometimes mean the plant or shrub dies due to overpruning or trimming.
By investing in routine landscape maintenance, you can avoid all of these issues all together. Keeping up with your property's landscaping consistently will pay off in the long-term.
Saves You Money
Reactive landscaping costs more money than routine landscape maintenance for a few reasons.
- Overgrown plants and shrubs run the risk of being lost during trimming and pruning, which means they will need to be replaced.
- Landscape contractors charge more for massive clean-ups of unattended landscaping.
- Property value decreases over time as your curb appeal decreases.
Basically, new installation of plants, massive clean-up and reduced property value, costs you more than routine landscape maintenance. Investing in your property's landscaping will not just reduce the overall costs in the long run, it will also save you time and give you peace of mind. The value of time and peace of mind alone are priceless!
