A beautiful lawn and a well groomed landscape always adds to the beauty (and value) of your house and keeps you healthy and happy.
Maintaining a healthy and beautiful lawn can be a tedious and time consuming job, so most folks turn to landscaping companies for help and expert advice.
But there are a few things that you can do yourself even if you are new to gardening or lawn care:

Clean regularly

Oh it’s so big! It’s the work of landscaping companies. They are the ones who provide maintenance services.Yes it is. But don’t you want to feel connected to your plants and land?
Taking on a small area at a time, you can spot clean your whole lawn in 2 to 3 days. Plus, it’s a great way to relax and unwind. Walking barefoot on the grass is optional, but highly recommended!


Weeds don’t look for an invitation. They arrive and check ­in with no departure date in sight. Weed your garden regularly so that it doesn’t affect the beauty and health of your plants. You can hand pluck the weeds and can also use weed killer and fertilizers. You can also opt for low chemical or chemical free weed killers.

Regular plant inspection

Watching over your plants is as important as watching over a baby. They catch diseases if they aren’t taken care of. This can lead to poor flowering and fruit, death of the plant and even the spread of disease to other plants. Monitoring your plants regularly allows you to keep your plants healthy and beautiful.

Plant nutrition and watering

Every plant has specific water and nutritional needs. Quantity? How many times? It can be quite daunting. While getting your plant from the nursery, make sure to ask about the water, sunlight requirements, and nutritional needs of your plant.

Plant pruning

Regular pruning and maintenance helps in the healthy growth of the plants. Since it’s a tricky thing, we usually depend on landscaping companies for this maintenance service. But guess what? You can do it yourself, especially with your small plants.The trick is to know when to prune what plant and which pruner to use.
There’s a lot to gardening that you can do yourself. Engaging landscaping companies and their land care services once a month is a great idea. At the same time do a few small things on your own. Not only will you spend more time in nature, but you’ll also enjoy your plants, show them love and lead a healthier life.
