Prepping Your Pembroke Pines Lawn For Winter

Prepping your lawn for winter is a great way to get a jump start on next year’s growing season. When the last leaf falls, will your yard be ready for winter? A few simple tasks from your trusted Pembroke Pines lawn service will save you time and frustration come springtime.

  • Simply because it’s cold outside doesn’t mean you get to stop mowing. We suggest mowing until the grass stops growing. Not only will it present a more attractive appearance, but it will make raking easier, too.
  • Don’t forget to rake your leaves, either. This will help to prevent areas of your lawn from being buried under leaves and thus being deprived of the sun.
  • Remove decaying or dying branches from your trees and bushes to keep them healthy.
  • Protect your plants with mulch. Mulching will help you prepare your yard for winter by guarding plants against colder temperatures and harsher weather. Spread it around the base of the plants in your yard – but wait until the first hard freeze. Don’t pack it down!
  • Now that it’s fall, it’s also a great time to start a compose pile. It will give you a way to put your yard waste to good use as a superb soil supplement. When picking the perfect location for your compost pile, make sure it’s close enough to your garden to allow you to easily carry material back and forth.
  • Your garden needs seasonal refreshing just like any other area of your home. Remove annuals that have seen better days (leave their roots!), clear out plant debris from the beds and borders of your garden, and pull any leftover weeds.

Adding Curb Appeal To Your Home

People often say you can’t judge a book by its cover, and while the saying is popular, there is a reason books have covers in the first place. As people come to your home they are creating judgments of your home, your lifestyle, your neighborhood before they ever even reach the front door. Whether you are trying to increase the value of your neighborhood, your home, or just trying to impress house guests, curb appeal is your home’s first impression. You don’t get a second chance to make a first impression.

Keep Your Grass Green

Green grass is a symbol of a healthy yard, and an owner who knows how to take care of their home. whether consciously or subconsciously, a visitors intake of the condition of your grass resonates with their opinion of your home.

Remove Stumps

It is interesting how you can tell the condition of a neighborhood, by simply checking the lawns for stumps. You will notice when you drive through less than desirable neighborhoods, there are still stumps from former trees in many of the yards, whereas desirable neighborhoods rarely ever display the corpse of their former trees. Stump Grinding offers an affordable way to remove old stumps.

Improve Design

While the other two steps are obvious choices, you may find that your curb appeal still leaves something to be desired. If this feeling sweeps over you, it’s time to call in the professionals for their landscaping opinion.

Whether you are looking for green grass, stump removal, or landscape design and installation, Brightstar Lawn & Landscaping offers premium yard services in the Davie, Florida area. Contact us today for your free quote.

Are You Over-Watering Your Lawn?

We all know that lawns need water, but over-watering your new green grass can be more damaging than drought conditions. To avoid damaging your lawn beyond salvation we will be discussing over-watering, and what you can do to prevent it.

New lawns are the most susceptible to over-watering that can lead to the death of your beautiful green grass. A lawn isn’t fully matured until it has been sodded for at least 6 months. During this period it is important to properly care for your yard to ensure a long lasting and healthy lawn. Much like people, grass depends on a balance of water and oxygen and can only consume one at a time. When water is present in the soil it displaces the oxygen. So, if the soil is kept saturated daily the grass will not receive the oxygen it needs, leading to shallow roots and a poor aesthetic.

Beyond a lack of oxygen an over-watered lawn makes the grass vulnerable to physical damage. When grass gets wet, especially if it is submerged, it becomes softer and more easily blemished by people and animals that walk, roll, or run across it. So, when your grass is constantly wet, you greatly increase the risk of injuring your lawn.

To maintain balance in your lawn, we recommend spacing out watering by 3 days or more. This gives your grass time to absorb the water, and your soil time to replenish with oxygen for a stronger and greener yard.
