What Landscape Maintenance Can Do for Your Property
Perfectly manicured lawns, healthy trees, and flowering gardens don’t get that way by accident—they need regular maintenance. But maintaining your landscaping is time-consuming. Instead, turn this task over to a professional landscaping company, who will know how to identify potential problems like plant diseases, and who can give you great advice on the types of plants and trees that will thrive in your area.
Eco-Friendly Irrigation for Lawn Lushness
Growing a healthy lawn in the desert is no easy feat. It requires careful planning and meticulous conservation of scarce water resources. A landscape maintenance company can install an eco-friendly irrigation system, and provide routine upkeep for it. This allows you to maximize your water resources, while still being able to enjoy the lushness and beauty of a well-watered lawn. Ask about automated irrigation systems, and set it to water your lawn during the early morning hours—before the sun can steal away moisture from the grass.
Prompt Identification of Plant Diseases
Routine landscape maintenance allows the professionals to look for potential signs of plant diseases and pests. It’s best to identify these problems as soon as possible, before they can spread to other plants and trees on your property. Some common plant diseases and pests found in Arizona include:
- Powdery mildew
- Fire blight
- Bacterial necrosis
- Bark beetles
- Wood borers
- Sap-sucking insects
- Defoliating insects
- Red belt fungus
- Velvet Top fungus
There are so many problems that can affect the flora of Arizona, and it’s hard for the average property owner to keep track of all the possible signs of infestation. A landscape maintenance professional can quickly identify problems and address them.
Minimized Risk of Severe Storm Damage
Another major benefit of contracting with a landscape maintenance company is that you can take proactive measures to protect your trees from storm damage during monsoon season. A Certified Arborist can prune trees properly to remove dead wood and thin out the foliage. This helps your trees stay beautiful and resilient.
