Cost of Lawn Service

Cost of Lawn Service

The average estimation of lawn service can be difficult to calculate because cost varies on the area and market of the country. A couple of factors can give you an idea of the costing. Firstly, price depends on the size of the yard. The bigger your yard, the more you have to pay. Another factor is the type of company you will choose.

Mowing

Companies providing full services have high rates but if you choose the right company they can be quite cheap. Their services include edging, mowing the lawn, debris removal and fertilization. People pay for lawn care services because they want their garden to look beautiful. For this, they call the lawn care companies and ask their estimation. Even in their websites, you can find lawn estimation calculator. Researches show that basic lawn care price ranges from $40 to $70 per week. Lawn Care companies can provide other forms of maintenance usually for an additional charge. You can hire the lawn care services to tend to your garden and make your garden more appealing.

Landscape Design

 

Landscape is to a house what a picture frame is to a good painting. It is perfect for bringing out the best features of your property while hiding the rough edges. A house that doesn’t have good landscape design can look naked and as if it doesn’t belong. Another great thing about a designed landscape is the increased curb appeal – the International Society of Arboriculture has said that a landscaped house can be worth up to eighteen percent higher than its non landscaped neighbour.

The increased liveability of a house that has a landscape design is amazing – creating an outdoor living space can give you the extra room you and your family need. Not only does it look good but landscaping can provide a great deal of personal satisfaction, its when all the elements come together in a visually appealing way that you know for sure that you have achieved successful landscape design.

Sprinkler Turn On Turn-On
We can even go a step further, and do a thorough water audit. Landscape irrigation auditing is a great tool for lowering your water bills, and maximizing water efficiency. A Sprinkler Audit consists of three main procedures: Initial Site Inspection, Water Measuring, and Irrigation Schedule Adjustment. Each procedure is designed to result in significant water savings, along with making sure the proper amount of irrigation is reaching each individual zone dependent on what type of plant material is getting irrigated. A water audit is performed by laying out catch devices (Often plastic cups are used.) in a grid like pattern throughout the irrigated area. The zone is then turned on, and allowed to run for generally 10 to 15 minutes. The time is recorded, and the water within each cup is measured and recorded. Next we figure out the precipitation rate at which that zone is running. We do this by taking the average amount of water in each cup divided by the number of of cups, multiplied by 60. This gives us a valid “Inches per Hour”, and allows us to see how effectively the system is running. Because different plant material require alternate watering than turf, knowing the Inches per Hour rate will let us know where we can turn down the zones watering to save on water, but still effectively irrigate the zone.

Landscape Lighting

Adding lights to your landscaping is a great idea to add a little color to your gardens. By simply putting landscaping lights in and around your house you can add security as well as I had talked of wonder, style, and beauty. An Eco friendly approach is to install solar lighting to your yard. Landscape lighting can brighten darker areas of your property and increase the safety of your home by making it easier to see steps and obstacles at night.

There are three main types of landscape lighting used. Accent lighting will cure all attention to a special feature such as a tree, sculpture or waterfall. Pathway lighting is lighting along or around paths on a property. They often cast an outward, downward glow. Mood lighting typically casts a soft warm glow to, often to talk or dine by. Common choices are the wall mounted, string or lantern varieties.

Mulch, Compost, and Topsoil!

Mulch, Compost, Topsoil, and Landscaping Ideas for PlaygroundsMulch is one of the best tools a landscape designer has in his or her toolbox. Mulch can take a bland, or stale landscape, and give it a fresh new look. Although mulch is most often used in beds, it is also a great material to go around tree’s within a turf panel. By mulching just the right amount (Not so much that it puts pressure on the tree trunk!), you can create a professional edge, and a nice point of contrast within your yard.

Mulch also provides a great substitute for grass in areas that are too small, or otherwise unaccessible, such as around walkways. By surrounding your walkway with mulch you can create a low maintenance, yet very stylish landscape!Mulch & Compost for Brick Paver Walkways and other Landscaping Ideas
