The Mistakes Homeowners Make that Are Killing Their Lawns

landscapers Jacksonville We Americans love our lawns. There are areas around the nation that get downright obsessed about them. As a country, we have turned this attention to our lawns into a passion. We love the carpeted velvet green of a well-maintained lawn, enough so that we spend about $40 billion on lawn care and landscaping services and products. Unfortunately, it’s often a love that often smothers and destroys.

As professional landscapers in Jacksonville, we often see the results of mistakes homeowners make when caring for their lawns and work tirelessly to bring back their lawns to a gorgeously healthy state with lawn renovation techniques. Avoid these common lawn care mistakes made by well-meaning homeowners and call the experts at C & L Landscaping instead:

  • Mowing too low – Though you may want a “manicured lawn” cutting the blades of grass too low reduces their ability to photosynthesize, thinning them out and allowing weeds to find space to grow.
  • Over-watering – Your lawn can become water-logged which does not allow roots to grow deeply, creating a weaker base for your lawn. It also can encourage moss growth in thin areas.
  • Wrongful use of lawn care products – Not spreading certain fertilizers evenly may produce scorched and discolored areas within your lawn and pesticides used haphazardly, by not following label directions, can add chemicals to your lawn that can destroy it and decimate beneficial insect populations.
  • Ignoring the soil beneath – Like any structure, a good foundation creates more functional stability for the entire entity. Your lawn will never see its optimum health if you don’t first take care of its soil.

It’s about service. It’s about quality results and work that is durable and reliable, providing only the best because that’s what you deserve. Landscaping is a craft that has been passed down through our generations, see the difference today.
