Planting large, expensive and beautiful plants, and then not professionally take care of them – it is an unacceptable mistake of many owners of private houses. Investing tens of thousands of dollars in the landscape, and then entrusting the lawn protection or mowing hedges to the driver, it seems to be cost-effective.
Young trees are better
But at the same time, it is often the death of the trees. Although this is often the case in practice after the improvement of buildings.
In our opinion, it is much more appropriate to plant smaller, younger and therefore cheaper plants. Thus to save money at the first stage of creation of a beautiful native garden. And to instruct professionals to take care of the plantings. After all, thanks to years of practice, they clearly know better what to do with plants and lawns, and when to do it. How to mow a lawn, how to mow hedges, when to treat with chemicals, what fertilizers to use, etc.
In fact, even most popular gardener calendars are quite approximate. A lot of garden care activities depend on the weather. Our climatic conditions change essentially that can affect terms of carrying out of works. Even the usual rain can radically change the actions of lawn care. If the lawn is wet, mowing it is not recommended. And if it has grown out of shape, you cannot mow it quite low (removing more than a third of the length of the grass) either. Raise the mower blades to the highest position. With each subsequent mowing lower the position of the mower knife to the level below, gradually bringing it to the desired position.
You have some questions. Ask for help.
Questions arise with plant formation, automatic watering adjustment, pest control. And such nuances can be brought a lot. And a person who is not experienced in this business to learn and remember them all is not real. Learn from your mistakes, believe me, much more expensive than to pay for the work of an experienced gardener, or redesign the landscape in a new way.
