Lawn care goes beyond simply getting a lawnmower from the store and then cutting your grass. It involves various skills and processes to get your lawn in shape, beautiful and healthy. When you employ a professional landscape company to care for your lawn, you get full-service lawn care and maintenance over time. These services include soil testing, edging, seeding, gardening, brush removal, property renovations, weeding, yard cleanup, pruning, mulching, etc.
FULL-SERVICE LAWN CARE
When it comes to the maintenance of your lawn, usually you have the choice of opting for a basic lawn care service that will involve just a basic service, mowing your lawn and blowing off leaves, which is referred to as “mow, blow, and go” or choosing a more comprehensive lawn care service that is focused on taking care of anything that concerns your lawn. The former is fast and but the latter favors quality over quantity and gives the best result and arguably the best value if you truly want to enjoy your outdoor space.
If this is what you want for your lawn then you need a landscaping company that provides full-service lawn maintenance with the right tools, technical know-how, skills, and experience to give it that flourishing, healthy look you’ve always wanted your lawn to have.
Maintaining a healthy, thick lawn also benefits the environment since unlike hard surfaces such as concrete, asphalt, and wood, lawn grass helps to:
- Clean the air
- Trap carbon dioxide
- Reduce erosion from stormwater runoff
- Improve soil
- Decrease noise pollution
- Reduce temperatures
While you might find it hard to keep your lawn looking dense and green during the summer and your grass will begin to lose its healthy outlook, as professional landscapers we know the species of shrubs, grasses, and trees that are frequently planted . We know the right treatment for each season, a good combination of mowing, weeding, fertilizer application, aeration, and overseeding with irrigation enhances the growth and for you to have a flourishing lawn looking lush and beautiful.

Information about our Full Lawn Nutrition Programs
Your lawn needs a full-service nutrient program to flourish. Like humans need a balanced diet, lawns require a balanced nutrient program to ensure a healthy lawn. This nutrient program is affected by different factors such as soil type, weather, grass type, and lack of a nutrient program or the wrong application can kill your lawn. Grasses need the right amount of sunlight and water with nutrients such as fertilizer to grow. Fertilization helps it grow fast by providing nutrients for the soil.
Three nutrients are essential to plant growth, nitrogen (for vigorous leafy growth), phosphorus and potassium. Nitrogen for instance needs to be replenished more often than other nutrients to keep the lawn alive. However, it’s not just about putting fertilizer on the lawn- it starts with choosing the right kind of fertilizer and the proper application at the right time. This program will result in a healthy lawn that can be resilient towards stressors, changes in weather and seasonal cycles, pests, rodents, and diseases. Only a healthy thriving lawn can look beautiful which is why you should trust the full lawn nutrition program from Finishing Touches Landscaping & Maintenance for a balanced and sustainable full lawn nutrition program that is tailored to your lawn needs.
Different Mowing styles
Full-service lawn maintenance can come with different styles of mowing. The two popular mowing styles are reel cutting and rotary. Because different kinds of grass need to be mowed in different ways, we offer the kind of mowing that suits your law. Reel mowing involves using a reel mower that snips the blades of grass like a pair of scissors making for a clean and precise cut.
This kind of cutting is smoothly done in a way that helps to preserve the nutrients present in the grass for healthy growth. This is more effective when the grass is not too long or wet and it’s used for lower terrains. Rotary cutting is a more flexible mowing style that can cut a wider variety of grass than reel mowing. It has a fan-like blade that is mounted horizontally and spins in a circular motion powered by an engine, using a sucking and tearing motion to cut. This helps in higher terrains, to cut longer grasses and tougher plants.
The mowing style we employ for your lawn will be determined by factors such as terrain, type of grass, and what you want.
Trimming, Edging, Aeration
Trimming in lawn maintenance refers to making horizontal cuts to areas lawn mowers cannot reach to remove excess grass and weeds. String trimmers are commonly used to smoothly eliminate grasses, weeds, vegetation that grow around places that are difficult to reach or will cause damage to the grass.
Edging involves the use of a mechanized edger, a manual rotary, or a half-moon edger to make vertical cuts that define an area such as borders, flowerbeds, walkways, islands, and driveways. This process is really important for giving lawns a clean
Aeration involves the removal of plugs of soil to break soil compaction to allow the passage of oxygen and water down to the roots. Without healthy roots, the lawn will die easily and be more susceptible to pests and disease. Aeration treatment helps to stimulate root growth by allowing needed nutrients to penetrate into the soil by preventing and removing unnecessary clutter, buildup, thatch breakdown, and removal (layers of roots, stems, and shoots between the grass and soil).
Thatch can be a refuge for pests and other organisms that can make the lawn look diseased and even damage it. The removal of this layer will encourage new grass to grow in a fresh environment making your lawn lush and green.
