We have the advice and expertise to help you enhance your home in an exceptional number of ways. Our goal is to guide our clientele in the right direction. It’s easy to become overwhelmed with all of the information on the internet about landscaping. Well, we’re here to debunk four landscaping myths. Read on to learn what they are!
1) Short Grass Means Minimal Maintenance
Cutting your lawn extremely short, could lead to the soil having too much sun exposure. Short grass could also lead to weeds and brown spots, making a landscape look unappealing and damaging the roots. Therefore, it’s best to keep the grass slightly higher to prevent landscape erosion.
2) You Should Only Plant in the Spring
Spring is an ideal season to install plants. However, the fall is optimal as well. Because fall is a colder season, plants don’t have to endure as much heat. There are even some plants that bloom beautifully in the fall. Pansies, Asters, and Goldenrods are examples. Planting in the fall, as well as the spring, can help your lawn or backyard look amazing during three seasons instead of just two!
3) Watering Your Grass at Night is a Great Idea
It makes sense that many homeowners think that watering their grass during the day is not the best idea. It’s natural to think that sun exposure will absorb all of the water. However, watering grass at night can lead to fungi because the moisture doesn’t settle. Watering before you head off to work in the morning or run errands is ideal because the sun is not at its peak.
4) You Should Stick Shrubs Around a House’s Walls
People initially did this because they wanted to hide unappealing cement or block. If you own a newer home, then it’s most likely that you have a brick or rock foundation, meaning that there’s no need for a coverup. Moving shrubs away from your home’s foundation makes maintenance less taxing, especially since it will be harder for pests to reach them.
