Keeping new trees and shrubs alive requires a lot more attention and care than most people realize. It might look like your plants are in fine shape, but the stress they’re under is actually enormous. It can take many years for young, new trees and shrubs to become acclimated to their new growing conditions and you want to do everything you can to support them and protect your investment. After all, the last thing that you want is to have to replace your landscape because you didn’t properly maintain it early on.

When it comes to lawn care concerns, weeds are likely high on your list. Weeds popping up throughout the season take away from the overall beauty—and the enjoyment—of your lawn.

You want to do everything you can to ensure a healthy lawn. But what does your lawn need as the winter rolls around each year? If you handle your lawn care on your own, you might be struggling to understand whether you need winter lawn fertilizer (and what exactly it is for that matter).

Nobody wants to have the worst lawn on the block. It’s not only embarrassing but it’s a source of stress. Instead of going outside and enjoying your beautiful backyard, it just puts you in a bad mood every time you step outside.

The decision should be easy, but there are a lot of lawn care companies in Dayton, OH and that can make choosing the best one feel like a lot of work. In order to make a wise decision and choose the best company (and in turn, get the best service), you must do your research.
If you’re anything like us, you really love your dog (or dogs). Also like us, you probably really love your lawn as well. The trouble is, as we both know, dogs and lush lawns don’t always mix well. That’s because dogs can cause lawn damage in a number of ways. Whether your dog is digging in the yard, tearing it up by running, or damaging it with urine burns, the challenge remains how to maintain a beautiful lawn while still enjoying it with your canine companion.
While it would be nice if the weather always offered the ideal conditions for your lawn to thrive - 60 degrees at night and 80 degrees during the day with a perfect two-inches of soft, steady rain each week - the truth is, weather sometimes throws a curveball. Whether it’s lawn care and rain, lawn care and hot weather, or lawn care during cold periods, dealing with Mother Nature is part of the job.
In this DIY world, there’s a good chance you might be considering tackling lawn care on your own. After all, why pay for something that you could easily do yourself? But therein lies the big question—how easy is it to really do lawn care on your own?

If we were to ask you what the ultimate goal of a lawn care service should be, you'd probably say "a healthy lawn." We would venture a guess that you're thinking in terms of thickness and color-and perhaps most importantly to you-a lawn that is weed-free.
