Keep Your Shrubs Looking Beautiful All Season Long!

Shrub trimming should be done twice per season on average after the first round of growth in June/July and late in the season when the shrub is done growing for the season usually around September or October.

Shrub trimming has a number of positive effects for the shrubs 1) by removing dead leaves and branches you make room for new growth. 2) You are able to maintain the desired height and width, or shape if you so desire,  by staying on a regular maintenance schedule with your bushes. This also helps to keep shrubs/trees from growing into the side or roof of your home/garage before it’s too late. With the recent storms we have experienced many homes were damaged unnecessarily by dead limbs.

Keeping your bushes trimmed can help on both sides of the fence when comes to security, it can be used to create a nice privacy barrier for your backyard with a nice arborvitae hedge.  Pruning/trimming can also be used to your advantage to keep views from your windows unobstructed and give you clear line of sight to all areas of your property.

Tips: Cut it high, and leave the clippings please!

Lawn Cutting 3" Height

        By keeping your grass height at 3″, the turf will create a natural barrier against weeds and other unwanted vegetation. When mowing a lawn, always remember: Taller blades of grass promotes longer root growth, and shades out weeds!

        Lawn Mowing clippings are a natural turf fertilizer. They are a wonderful source of Nitrogen (What is commonly found in almost all fertilizers!), and can reduce the need for additional fertilizer by up to 25%!

Lawn Care Services

Lawn Services

While choosing lawn care service, you are likely going to choose any of the two categories. Either, you can hire a company to take care of the ins and outs maintaining your outdoor, or you can want to do yourself. Before doing self-maintenance of your lawn, you must be well aware of all the required information. This mainly includes the appropriate period of mowing the grass. If you mow grass when the sun is extremely hot, then you are applying additional stress on the grass. Even you should not mow right after rain or until the grass is entirely dry. If you cut a wet yard, the grass will get open to all sorts of fungus and disease. This can eventually kill the grass.

You can keep healthy yard by setting frequency of lawn care service. Lawn care companies will come on a regular schedule of once a week. The general rule of thumb for any yard states to cut off not more than one-third of the grass once.

Finally, you must be acknowledged about the proper process of mowing the grass. Here, you need to hire a lawn care service. Professionals are experts to cut the grass properly in order to retain its healthy look.

Lawn Fertilization and Weed Control

Nitrogen Lawn Fertilizer and Weed Control

        The constant rain of April is giving way to the first wave of Crab Grass! This means it’s about time to start fertilizing your lawn! If you want greener grass in your lawn, a nitrogen based fertilizer is your first step. Total Lawn Care uses Nitrogen fertilizer because of it’s life-giving properties, as Nitrogen is a vital element in turf’s growth process. Too much Nitrogen fertilizer, however, can seep through groundwater and into Michigan’s waterways! This is why we recommend having a MDA Certified Spray Technician apply ANY chemicals or fertilizer to your lawn. Total Lawn Care Inc. is a Healthy Lawn Care Provider for Watershed Protection, and we care about our environment!

        If you would like to meet with one of Turfgrass specialists to create a fertilizer plan that fits your lawn, call us at 248-588-1694 info@totallawncareinc.com, or Click Here to use our Online Request to schedule an appointment for a free estimate!
