If you're a South Florida resident, you have probably seen what wrath the wet seasons can bring upon the homes in the area. We are relatively low in the water table and our underground foundations of limestone tend to sop up too much of the water before we are totally overrun by flooding, but we are still subject to the dreadful harm of debris damage. For this reason, we have storm shutters and hurricane windows installed but what about our lawns and backyards which hold our trees and plants. Without proper care of these, we face even higher risks of debris damage from loose branches or fallen trees. Proper maintenance of your residence's lawn is essential to being safe in the upcoming Florida summer and eventually the storming season.
Of course lawn care is a very varying field of expertise. In fact, each residential lawn we are asked to service often has their own individual differences which require differing sets of skills. So then, to what extent is it necessary to hire a residential lawn care service provider over doing the work yourself? This is a tough question because, as said previously, everyone's lawn in different. Some of us have huge homes with many large northern trees and several gardens to boot. Then there are those with smaller homes which only support a few fruit-bearing trees and bushes with a few palm trees as decoration. Indeed for some, it may seem much more profitable to purchase a few DIY tools and take care of any lawn care concerns on their own. The only way to know for sure is to take a look at your spare time, what your needs are, and how much you know about agricultural care.
What is on your lawn?
This is the first question you should ask of yourself before hiring a local expert on the subject. What types of plants do you own and to what extent do they threaten your home in the event of a storm or catastrophe. If your lawn holds several large trees with extraneous branches, then you must consider having these branches clipped or removed every season. If you have smaller trees which have low-lying roots, then these trees should be secured to the ground in case a storm blows it up off its roots and into your home. Sometimes you will have other specific situations which require the advice of your trusted local lawn care expert.
How much can you do on your own?
We are all most likely used to a seasonal leaf-raking and lawn cleaning. Some us might even have trimmers, or telescoping branch cutters for some DIY care. However, there is a concern for time and ability. Some are simply too busy each day for time to maintain the lawn over other concerns so it flies by the wayside until problems start to develop. In addition, sometimes the trees are too tall or cumbersome to manage on your own without specialized equipment. Most of our service calls deal with situations which would not be safe to handle without our machinery and trained service providers.
How much do you know?
There have been cases where people applied chemicals and improper techniques which put them or their lawns in danger. It only takes one time for a serious injury to take place where you might need poison-exposure treatment or surgery from an accident with a tool. If you aren't sure about certain components of lawn care, you should perform adequate research beforehand or call your local lawn care expert.
