Selecting the right company that offers the proper lawn care service program is critical for keeping your lawn healthy and looking good. At Greenwell Landscaping of Penfield, NY there are three lawn mowing rules we use to keep your lawn beautiful!
1.MOW HIGH ENOUGH
The basic rule of lawn mowing: the hotter the weather, the higher you should mow. Higher lawn mowing promotes deeper roots, prevents water loss by shading the soil, and reduces weeds by preventing sunlight from warming weed seeds. taller grass also cools the soil and reduces heat stress.
2. MOW OFTEN ENOUGH
Be sure that no more than one-third of the total grass blade is removed in any one lawn mowing. Lawn Mowing too short removes too much of the green part of the plant, leaving stalky-looking crowns and stems. This gives the lawn a brown, scalped look and weakens the grass. Recovering from even a single "scalping" sets the lawn's growth back many weeks.
3. KEEP MOWER BLADES SHARP
When lawn mowing dull mower blades can rip and shred the tips of your grass blades, turning them a bleached, tan color and leaving the whole lawn looking brown. For the best results Greenwell Landscaping sharpens their mower blades daily.
Follow Proper Pruning Techniques
Proper pruning enhances the beauty of almost any landscape tree and shrub, while improper tree and shrub pruning can ruin or greatly reduce its landscape potential. In most cases, it is better not to prune than to do it incorrectly. In nature, plants go years with little or no pruning, but man can ruin what nature has created. By using improper pruning methods healthy plants are often weakened or deformed.
Pruning, like any other skill, requires knowing what you are doing to achieve success. The old idea that anyone with a chain saw or a pruning saw can be a landscape pruner is far from the truth. More trees are killed or ruined each year from improper pruning than by pests. Remember that pruning is the removal or reduction of certain plant parts that are not required, that are no longer effective, or that are of no use to the plant. It is done to supply additional energy for the development of flowers, fruits, and limbs that remain on the plant. Pruning, which has several definitions, essentially involves removing plant parts to improve the health, landscape effect, or value of the plant. Once the objectives are determined and a few basic principles understood, pruning primarily is a matter of common sense.
The necessity for pruning can be reduced or eliminated by selecting the proper plant for the location. Plants that might grow too large for the site, are not entirely hardy, or become unsightly with age should be used wisely and kept to a minimum in the landscape plan. Advances in plant breeding and selection in the nursery industry provide a wide assortment of plants requiring little or no pruning. However, even the most suitable landscape plants often require some pruning. Our professional, well-trained staff at Greenwell Landscaping work hard to elicit the natural beauty of your landscape through regular landscape maintenance and expert care.
