If you want a great lawn, you need a schedule to stick to. Check out this lawn service checklist and call Jersey Landscaping to start planning.
Create a Lawn Care Schedule
The key to achieving a lush, is organization and planning. Start by creating a lawn care schedule by season to control weeds and disease, and ensure your maintenance is stress-free and simple.
🗹 Watering: Frequency and amount depends on where you live and the type of grass, plants and soil on your property.
🗹 Mowing: Typically once per week.
🗹 Edging: Sleek lines boost your curb appeal.
🗹 Fertilizing: Typically a seasonal task.
🗹 Weed Control: Stay on top of pesky weeds by tending to them often.
🗹 Repairs: Dead spots, animal damage and crabgrass require touch-ups.
That said, determining the right lawn care schedule will depend on your zone and grass type, but in general there are certain tasks to complete each season.
