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.

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.

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.
