Why should you invest in garden maintenance services?

The most obvious being aesthetics

Gardens are often seen as an extension of your home, office park, school or estate, and is often an area used to socialise (especially in today’s climate). When a garden is overgrown or neglected, these areas quickly become unappealing. Your garden is likely to be the very first thing that visitors see. And, undoubtedly you will want to make sure that your garden gives the right impression of you, your business and your property. Even if your gardens are kept fairly clean and tidy, regular garden maintenance is still vital to avoid a dull and dying space.

It’s also important to be aware that depending on the type of soil that is in the area where your garden is located, you may need to regularly replenish the nutrients in your soil. This can be achieved through garden maintenance services fertilising your lawn every few months and adding nutrients to the flower beds. This will keep your lawn looking bright, fresh, and very much alive.

Garden maintenance services save you money

You may think that regular garden maintenance will do the absolute opposite of saving you money, especially if you are hiring a professional but this is certainly not the case. If you leave gardens to grow out of control, it can lead to serious damage. The cost needed to rectify your garden issues cost substantially more than regular professional maintenance.

Several structures can be damaged as a result of gardens being left to over-grow. If there are fences and walls nearby, overgrown weeds and plants can very quickly cause damage. Plants are extremely resilient and will grow in any cracks, gaps and crevices on the walls or fences. This could spell disaster as they will lose structural integrity. This can lead walls to crumble and can cause fences to become irreparable. Regular garden maintenance will help prevent this from happening, and it will ensure that your garden stays manageable and under control.

Continuous upkeep

Weeds have a nasty habit of sprouting up wherever and whenever they please. As so, they can wreak all sorts of havoc for your other plant life, from stealing their food supply to blocking sunlight. When weeds show up in your garden, they can suck up the nutrients from the soil, leaving your plants with little nourishment to grow. The soil is full of important lifesaving nutrients, but when weeds are packed in between other crops, there is of course less to be shared around, leaving your plants to wilt and even die.

Garden Maintenance will allow for regular checks and monthly weeding, and your lovely plants will continue to be healthy and rich in nutrients, allowing them to truly thrive. Weeds grow much faster and more aggressively than other plants, and if left untouched, they begin to block out the valuable sunlight that your garden plants require to thrive and survive.

Be a step ahead when it comes to pest control and diseases

Pests can be more than a headache to any garden. Rodents love the back walls and fences of gardens, often settling and making homes there. This becomes a problem as rats can carry numerous diseases and parasites that spread easily. When debris and dead natural material is left to gather in your garden, it can lead to a whole host of issues. Rot can spread and so can various pests such as wood burying insects who spread to healthy wood once the deadwood has been exhausted. Weeds are notoriously known for spreading diseases to healthy plants. These diseases can also be passed from the weed to your crops by insects.

When you have a garden maintenance service in place, they will do more than just look after your greenery, they will ensure that pests are not moving in by keeping a constant eye on your entire landscape.

With immaculate gardens, your property value increases

Many people underestimate how much value a well-maintained garden can add to the asking price of any property. A garden that is neat, attractive and usable can be a huge drawcard to any potential buyers, adding as much as 25% to the overall value. With a touch of regular maintenance, your garden will reap the rewards further down the line.

With a professional garden maintenance company to assist you all year round, your lawns will stay neat, your weeds under control, hedges trimmed and trees pruned. With the right team to look after your garden maintenance, your green areas would always be taken care of automatically, not to mention any patio or deck repairs you may need.
