Why Hire a Professional Lawn Care Company

A green lawn says volumes about the interest you take in the maintenance and curb appeal of your home. When properly maintained, grass can flourish and remain healthy, green, and growing without excessive maintenance, water, fertilizer, or reseeding. At Elowsky Lawn Services, we are dedicated to providing unparalleled lawn care to our customers and giving them a priceless area in which to play, create memories, and share the beauty nature has to offer. With our help, you can keep your lawn green without overusing valuable resources like water. Here are some simple tips to help you out along the way.

Water in the Morning

The illusion that watering is watering and can be done effectively at any time during the day is false. The most efficient and effective time to water your lawn is first thing in the morning, before the sun rises. This allows the water to saturate the ground and be soaked up by the grass before quickly evaporating due to the sun’s hot rays. Often, you may find that you don’t need to water as much when you do it in the wee hours of the morning because the water will take a longer time to evaporate so it takes less time to saturate the ground.

Furthermore, you will reduce your water usage if you water your lawn in the morning because your lawn simply needs less water at this time of day. This is because the temperature of the earth drops during the night. If you ever notice morning dew on your lawn, this is because of the condensation seeping out from the earth as it cools. Therefore, since the morning lawn has not been dried out by the sun and still retains its moisture, you can get away with using less water!

Abide by County Ordinances

Many counties put water ordinances and restrictions in place to help homeowners monitor their water usage. This helps to avoid overuse and is important to ensure there is enough water to go around. At Elowsky Lawn Services we also take these ordinances into regard when planning a watering system for your property. Whether it is automatically timed or not, we make every effort to abide by the law to ensure the preservation of this precious resource.

Save Money by Researching Your County’s Hydro Rates

A quick keyword search on Google will inform you about your county’s hydro rates. This means that at certain hours of the day, the rate that hydro is charged at costs less. For example, the highest usage of hydro occurs midday on weekends, and as a result, this is the most expensive usage time frame. Be smart and beat the crowd by using your water at the least popular hour and watch your savings grow!

Let the Grass Grow

Longer grass isn’t necessarily a bad thing. In fact, it has many environmental benefits including the fact that it provides protection against the sun’s rays. Additionally, longer grass retains more moisture which means water evaporates slower. With our dependable lawn maintenance, we can help you keep longer grass without it getting out of control or looking like an eyesore. Our equipment and methods for maintenance are useful in that your lawn will remain manicured and symmetrical even when the grass grows longer.

On a more environmentally conscious note, healthy grass promotes the growth of healthy bacteria and living organisms. These microscopic organisms, which live in the soil, nourish your lawn, making it greener than ever. Consider it nature’s fertilizer!
