Lawn Care Tips

While we have all heard the saying “Don’t judge a book but its’ cover” many people still do.  In the case of your home, the landscape is a big part of the cover! Your landscaping is often the first impression people get of both you and your home and Total Turf is here to make sure that first impression is a great one.

Here are some tips that we have put together that will help make your landscaping project a success.  These tips all assume that you will be using a landscaping company so we have left out watering, etc.  As always, feel free to call call or email if you have any questions.

1)  Plan your landscaping, irrigation, and/or tree project in advance – Like any other project, the more thought you put into it and the more knowledge you have the better it will turn out.   You do not have to be an expert (that’s what we are here for0  but having an end result in mind will not only help you budget – it will also make sure the final product is exactly what you had in mind.

2)  Research plant and flower options – While the type of plants and flowers you can use will largely depend on the soil type and exposure of your home, getting an idea of what you like will allow us to help you pick plants and flowers that most closey, if not exactly match what you had in mind.

3)  Pick the right grass – The type of grass you choose can determine how often you mow, how well it will grow, etc.  The main factors to look at are the amount of shade and the acidity (PH level)of your soil.  Give us a call and we can test it for you or you can purchase simple test kits online or at local gardening centers.

Again, feel free to call us anytime.  We are always here to help!
