Ways to Get Your Children Involved in Lawn Care

It’s no easy task getting the entire family on board to help care for the lawn. Children today have many distractions between video games, toys, sports, friends, and school work. You don’t have to care for the lawn all by yourself. Children of many different ages can assist to not only give you a hand but also help prepare them for adulthood, when they may need to care for their own lawns. We want to share some tips to help make lawncare a family affair and help young ones get started on the right foot:

A Christmas Tree You Can Keep

December has arrived, and the sights and sounds have transitioned to everything Christmas and the holidays. You can’t escape the twinkling lights, cheery songs, tasty treats, and Christmas trees. Year after year, the hard decision needs to be made between real trees or artificial ones. If you love the smell and feel of a real tree but are concerned about the sustainability factor, there is a perfect option for you. A living Christmas tree gives you the enjoyment of a real tree during the holiday season, with the ability to transition it to an outdoor landscape that can be enjoyed for many years to come.

Winterizing your Lawn in Hernando County

Now that the blazing hot days of summer are behind us, it’s hard to believe that it is time to start preparing our lawns for the winter. Even though Florida doesn’t often get very cold, it’s still a good time to start preparing your lawn for our winter weather. Less sunlight, cooler temperatures, and shorter days all contribute to slower growing lawns. Grass in Florida goes dormant in the winter time, drastically slowing and even stopping the growth rate. Taking steps to winterize your lawn keeps it healthy in cold conditions. Use these tips to protect your lawn this winter.

Save Your Lawn From Holiday Decoration Damage

As a kid, you never had to worry about the damage those decorations might do to the yard, but as an adult, you’re more likely to keep it in mind. Follow these tips and be careful with these holiday items so that they do not cause damage and you can start the new year with a beautiful and healthy lawn!

While we all strive to have a healthy and beautiful lawn, a lot of us have trouble actually creating one. Fortunately, we have gathered some useful tips to help you have an easier time taking care of your lawn and make it the envy of the neighborhood.
