In the big picture, anytime is a good time to begin your landscape project planning. A good landscape design is a work of art. Just as a poet or writer may scribble a line or two on the back of a napkin as it comes to them, you can jot down notes, tear pictures out of magazines or store online pictures of landscape designs that inspire you.
Regular maintenance is essential to a beautiful, healthy landscape. Without it, your landscape can quickly become overgrown and create an eyesore for your home’s appearance. An overgrown landscape not only looks bad, but it also invites all types of lawn diseases, insects and pests to your property.
All lawns need proper nutrients to stay healthy, lush and green, but they need the right nutrients at the right time of year to grow and thrive. For best results, fertilization should be done in early spring, late spring, summer, early fall and late fall. This is an inconvenience and a lot of work for most homeowners who simply don’t have the time and energy to commit to these schedules.
